What is the best cat tree in the USA? How do you figure this out? I decided on this method:

  1. Buy from Amazon. They have a large selection from different suppliers. They are reliable and their prices are outstanding. They have customer reviews aplenty. There is one caveat: customer reviews are very useful but should be read with a degree of caution as these days so called, “customer reviews” can be the work of professional writers!
  2. Digest the assessment of a respected cat lover and professional writer. Who better than Franny Syufy of who regular writes product guides.
  3. Where the two methods described in 1 and 2 above intersect or correlate, those cat trees or cat tree will be the best. At least it will be one of the best. Caveat: Franny Syufy may have made her selection based on Amazon listings! As usual a best cat tree listing should be assessed itself or at least used cautiously.

This assessment relates to the North American market.

Best cat tree — Franny’s top picks

  1. Armarkat 74″ Deluxe 9 Level Cat Tree – this is item no. 1 above.
  2. Angelical Cat Rustic Medium Cat Tree – a more natural product that might appeal to outdoor/indoor cats. The support posts are tree trunks.

I will stop there because it is obvious, on this selection criteria, that the best cat tree in the US, is the Armaket 74″ which is listed as No. 1 in the list above.

It is 74″ tall. That is just over 6 feet tall. I think that is acceptable in a room as it is about the height of the male human.

Are there any other reviews that support this assessment? The website: features the 74″ Armakat (item 1 in the table above) and rate it 4.67 out of 5 from 6 reviews (link opens in a new window – links can become defective over time). This is clearly a good product at a very reasonable price on Amazon. A decent sized cat tree would seem to necessary as it is designed to replicate tree climbing, provide a high vantage point and a cat scratcher all in one.
