The Best Cat Condos (2022 Reviews)

Have a cat that you want to make happy? A cat that you want to keep happy and healthy for a long time?

Then, the best cat condos are where you should be looking. By providing plenty of high quality levels and fun, your cat will have the opportunity to play, sharpen their claws, explore, exercise and get plenty of rest and relaxation.

However, there’s a lot of training out there on the internet that suggests cats do far better with just a regular old cat tree. I have looked into this and although a cat tree is a good choice, there are much better options if you can afford it.

2. FEANDREA 67 inches Multi-Level Cat Tree

Pros:

  • Our cats love being hidden away in their little hideaways
  • It has a good quality feel to it

Here's the thing about this cat tree – it brings out the naughty side in our older cat, Ollie.

At first she would not go anywhere near it (people kept telling us how much their cat loved the tree) and stayed away from it.

When we first put it put, one leg fell off. We thought it was cheap and to be honest I was not at all impressed with the tree.

Pros:

  • Keeps your kitty nice and warm
  • The soft and comfortable pet pillow adds to the enjoyment of this cat house
  • Extremely powerful insert fan keeps the cat house warm even in the coldest weather conditions
  • The two free mats help protect your cat from possible painful paws

Kitty Tube is one of the best pet houses. Even though it has a higher price tag, it combines a great design with loads of useful features.

The Kitty Tube comes already insulated which means you do not need to add any additional layers if you live in an area where temperatures drop below zero.

The auto-retractable top locks in place and with a push of a button the fan starts. The fan helps you save energy by reducing the amount of time you use the heat.

6. Go Pet Club 62-Inch Cat Tree

Our rating: 9 / 10

Go Pet Club 62-Inch Cat Tree

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Affordably priced
  • Very appealing design
  • A sturdy, decent sized cat tree

Cons:

  • The base ring is not 100% stable; many users have experienced it falling apart over time
  • The overall size of the cat tree makes it difficult to take apart when moving it to a different location

This is a medium sized cat tree that is connected by a central building. It has been designed to be spacious, to give your cat plenty of room to move around.

Although the structure is arranged in sections, this is not a negative feature. You can adjust the height of the bed, allowing you to keep your cat steady at the height of their preference.

Also, you can easily move the tower if you need to. This makes it great for people that move houses regularly. The manufacturer has made it easier for you to disassemble the tree by using Velcro.

  • Includes a water dispenser and a furnace cover, easy to operate and maintain.
  • There are three heating modes for choice

This Outdoor Cat house with Heater is a great shelter for cold nights. There are three heating modes for choosing: low, medium and high heat. The base of the cat house is made of good quality metal, and the roof is waterproof and can keep the temperature inside the house stable.

This heated cat house is made out of heavy duty plastic and it is insulated, also the metal used in it is anti-corrosive.

To prevent pet from licking the plastic, we coated the edge of cat house with a non-toxic paint.

8. Armarkat B5701 57-Inch Cat Tree

Our rating: 9 / 10

Armarkat B5701 57-Inch Cat Tree

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • It's very sturdy, well built and easy to put together.
  • We have 5 cats of different sizes and they all use it.
  • Several 'cat friendly' materials that can be used to rest and sleep.
  • Cat tree is large enough to hold even the bigger cats.
  • It's probably the best purchase we've made.

Cons:

  • The top of the cat tree is not covered.
  • The tree would have been nicer if it was more colorful.

I was desperate to find a cat tree large enough for my cats to have something to sleep on. They love to sleep high up in a window but I didn't want something that would stick out of the house or it would become an injury liability. This condo is exactly what I was looking for! My cats are happy that they have something they can sleep in and I am happy that it is almost completely hidden in the corner but looks nice. It is very sturdy. It took my husband only 10 minutes to put together. It is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone who has cats.

There are a lot of cat trees out there. This is one of my favorites. You can knock 50 percent off of this cat tree from Amazon.

PetPals New Paper Rope Natural Bowl Shaped

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Durable and Stable
  • Proven to Keep Cats Happy and Active
  • For Medium Cats Only
  • Affordable Option for Multiple Cats

Cons:

  • Assembly Required
  • Some Assembly is Difficult
  • A Few Lag Screws May Be Loose

There are a lot of cheap cat condo tower trees available on Amazon that have mixed reviews. The PetPals Paper Rope Natural Bowl Shaped Climber is very strong and durable. About as stable as a condo tower can be. It doesn’t wobble, and cats seem to really like to climb on it.

Some assembly is required although the instructions are clear. Be aware that this is a folding tree that is meant to be stored away when not in use. It stands 36 inches tall and has a base that is 26 inches x 19 inches x 22 inches in size.

It is presented entirely in paper and rope, which is good for cats who may want to sharpen their claw on the tree. It doesn’t seem to bother cats that they cannot dig their claws into the rope.

10. Furhaven Pet

Our rating: 8 / 10

Furhaven Pet

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • The materials and design are durable
  • It is easy to put together and is stable when it is

Cons:

  • Cats may not like the looks of it
  • The assembly instructions are not the best

Our cat is an indoor cat and he gets bored. Have used different toys and materials. This one he loves. It is easy to put together. Assembly instructions not the best but easy to figure out.

This is pretty solid and doesn't often tip over. My cat loves it, especially the perch area, which is nice for him to lay on top of when I let him outside.

My cats have all pretty much avoided it entirely. It is cool looking and has nice fabric, but it is uncomfortable for them to lay in as it's just too narrow, they feel like they're falling off and would rather be on the floor.

  • Comes with free carrying handles

The Petsfit cat hiding house comes with a 360 degree walkway, an escape door, and a staircase.

12. MidWest Curious Cat Cube

MidWest Curious Cat Cube

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • The Large Size, Easy-to-Clean Litter Mat Helps Keep Litter from Tracking Through the House
  • The Ventilation and Viewing Windows Allow Your Cat to Enjoy Sunny Days
  • You Can Connect Several Cubes Together
  • The Cubes Come in Many Different Colors to Match the Theme of House

Cons:

  • The Unit Can Be a Little Hard to Assemble
  • It Can Be a Little Hard to Move Around

Just place your cat in the center of the cube. The floor to ceiling design will keep your cat busy for a long time, not to mention he will get plenty of exercise.

And if your cat jumps, the mats can be removed and washed. This will keep your walls and floors clean and smelling good.

The cubes are easy to put together and you can connect several cubes together. The only problem I had with this unit is the directions are hard to follow.

Pros:

  • A great offer you can not go wrong with
  • Good quality product at an affordable price

Cons:

  • Although the item is sturdy, it is easy to knock over
  • Not very attractive

As the top seller in its category, this is a good purchase. Many customer reviews confirm that the product features a good design and is good value for money. The tree is easy to assemble and strong enough to hold several large adult cats at the same time.

FEANDREA’s Cat Tree is a modern cat tree that combines elegance and functionality. This cat tree is about 42 inches tall. Perfect for large cats that love to lounge and rest, or for kittens that sleep, play, or just hang around.

Go Pet Club Cat Tree

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Sturdy
  • Comes in a very wide range of colors

(CA-1102)

The Go Pet Club Cat Tree is definitely not your average cheaply made cat tree. This tree is one of the heaviest and sturdiest cat trees that you will find, which is more than likely due to the wood that it’s made with.

This is one of the best cat trees for a household with several cats. The entire height of the tree is 35 inches, which will basically make it impossible for your cats to scratch this tree to pieces.

Petsfit Outdoor Cat House Weatherproof,Sturdy and Cute

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • 99% customer satisfaction guarantee
  • Sturdy
  • Large enough for 2 cats
  • High Quality Materials

If you have a cat, they can be very fussy about where they want to sleep. Pretty much anything can be a cat house if you put your mind to it, there are plenty of imaginative cat homes out there.

Cat owners will love the Petsfit Outdoor Cat House which is easy to assemble and plenty of space inside for 2 cats, thanks to the cat house being 25 inches tall.

It’s high mounted perches offer views over the surrounding area, which is what cats are looking for in a cat house. The sturdy construction and weatherproof materials combine to make this a good cat tree for cats looking to dig into their scratching post.

16. Cat Condo Pet Cube

Our rating: 8 / 10

Cat Condo Pet Cube

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Easy entry and exits
  • Closing your cats in/out works better than I thought it would

Cons:

  • A bit heavy at 17 lbs for a cardboard box
  • Assembly can be difficult depending on which way you open the box and the pieces (especially the bottom part) may be very challenging to assemble, especially if you are inexperienced.

I have four kittens (the max I could fit in the condo) and they all fit in the condo with no problems. There are just enough rooms for them to perch and escape each other when they want to. The material is easy to clean and seems durable.

The top opening is big enough for one of my cats to easily walk out of. If you decide to attach a towel or blanket to the top opening to help conceal/hide them in there, don’t make it too thick.

The top opening is also too big for my female kittens to get stuck in (have happened many times before), so be careful of that. The bottom opening does not have a floor, so you’ll have to cover it with a towel or blanket. This is a good hiding area, but my kittens have kicked out the blanket before and they fell to the bottom, so be careful.

YAHEETECH 54.5in Cat Tree Tower Condo Furniture Scratch Post

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Great for kittens or cats that like to climb around
  • The balsa wood construction means it won’t tip over easily and is generally very sturdy
  • Multiple perches for multiple kitties to lounge on (provides great foot exercise for older cats and kittens)
  • A low price point compared to cat condos
  • Balsa wood can also be used to clean the cats fur
  • It’s easy to assemble

Cons:

  • This Cat Tower may not have enough room for two largest kitties
  • The condo can be a little too short of a height for some cats
  • This Cat Tree is not the highest. If you have a cat that likes to climb high, this may not be tall enough.
  • The sisal rope scratching area is not very easy to attach reliably.

This Cat Condo from Yaheech is one of the cheapest cat towers that I could find. Most cat towers are either small or quite pricy. This Cat Tower, however, is a great middle ground between small and pricy. And its multiple perches and entrances make it great for multiple cat families.

Pros:

  • Comes in small, medium and large sizes and in 32 colors
  • It is a comfortable place for your cat to relax and play or nap

This cat tree condo is perfect for your cat and will provide them with hours of entertainment.

The medium size is the best if you have more than one cat or if you just want to buy one for your cat to share with another.

20. The Refined Feline Lotus Cat Tower Furniture

Our rating: 7 / 10

The Refined Feline Lotus Cat Tower Furniture

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • If you are not sure how your kitty will react to a Cat Condo then you must get this one as you can use the lounge chairs by themselves
  • Allows the cat to scratch the tree itself, so this piece of furniture can last a long time
  • Very solid structure, and easy to put together
  • Adjustable levels, so you can have some parts higher and others lower
  • Comes with a mat included so you can put your cat on the mat to keep it from sliding around

Cons:

  • The cat does not use the platform to sleep on, but instead just sleeps on the top beams
  • It is one of the more expensive options

Cat trees are actually evolutionary in nature. Kitty originally used tall trees to escape predators and as a source for hunting. This tree allows your kitty to hunt prey, climb high up to see what potential threats lurk, and also to relax. Not to mention the most fun part – cats typically LOVE to scratch the tree.

Pros:

  • Easy to put together
  • Nice that it has different sizes so can grow with the animals
  • Nicely made product; they did not skimp on the material they used

My cat loves this house! He also likes to bring his toys in there and sit on the top ledge like he is king of the world. The extra sleeping cubbies are great for my indoor cats because they can hang out and look stuff without bothering the animals outside.

Sturdy, nice looking product that I am able to put together in just a few hours even with minimal tools and skills.

My female Siamese loves this. She goes inside and lays down and then comes up to scratch her head and rub around. She has been looking for somewhere to scratch and I recently nailed a post up for her so she can get to the top.

Our rating: 5 / 10

Trixie Pet Products

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • A space saving cat condo with a modern design
  • Big enough for multiple cats
  • Easy to maintain
  • High quality and affordable

The Trixie Pet Products Baza Condo is a small but mighty cat condo that can fit in any corner of your home.

It is made of pressed wood for that classic, Scandinavian look that is very popular in today’s design. The triangular shape makes it very space-saving and efficient as opposed to a square box, making it a great option for small apartments.

The tower is 37.5 inches high, which gives your kitty a lot of room for play and a good vantage point for surveying its domain.

Conclusion

We concluded that this is one of the best options when it comes to cat condos for some great reasons.

First, it is one of the sturdier cat condos we’ve found. This is great because the last thing you want is for your cat condo to fall apart within a couple of months of purchase.

Second, it is super easy to assemble. It won’t take you more than 10 or 15 minutes to have this thing together. During this time, you’ll get to see your kitty watching you, which for some cat owners is one of the best parts.
