My cat absolutely loves this cat tree! She's on the bigger side and it's a great fit for her. The platforms are staggered at a good height, they're big enough for her to comfortably sit on and is very sturdy. She loves sitting at the top of the tree and uses the scratching posts often. She doesn't really use the nook at the bottom, so I just use it to store her toys which is very handy. I love how it has removable pads, so it's really easy to clean off the fur. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
