I saw a 3 tier cat tree that I was so tempted to buy. I was hesitant because I am worried about the maintenance. ET already has a small scratch post, scratch pad, and some furniture that I left in his room for him to scratch to his heart's content. So, I was just wondering, whats the purpose of most people having a tall cat tree, its mainly for kitty to scratch or to play around and how do you guys/gals maintain a tall cat tree? I was just wondering if I should be spending the money on more toys or on a cat tree. My kitty is 2yr old, pretty lazy, and he does gets bored wif his toys after a while, though he is now pretty crazy about the DaBird I bought recently.
