The SmartCat Multi-Level Cat Climber is a lot of fun for cats to jump on. It’s a great alternative to a standard cat tree if you are space-constrained in your home.
This climber is set up like stair steps and affixes to the front of a door. Cats enjoy climbing from shelf-to-
shelf and perching. I love this item and have had one in my home for a couple of years. I installed a couple of shelves above this unit to help my cats climb even higher to a landing area in my foyer that has a cathedral ceiling area. They absolutely love it. I will often catch my cats leaping at this climber and jumping two stairs at a time!
The only negatives associated with this products are 1) it has a strong odor when you take it out of the box and 2) the unit is noisy. I believe the odor is from the manufacturing or glue that is used – but simply air it out a few days and it is fine. With regard to the noise – I don’t have any advice here. My cats are really rough with this and it bangs against the door that it is hung on. Every time they leap at the door – it makes a loud “bang” that can be quite startling… but the cats are having fun – so that’s all that matters…right? Especially at 3am and they are leaping all over it…
