Armarkat B7801 Cat Tree Review
The Armarkat B7801 is in the $100-150 price range. You’ll find that the majority of indoor cat trees in this price range are going to be made out of pressed wood and covered in faux fleece or faux fur.
According to several reviewers, the B7801 is very stable for a tall cat tree.
Here’s What The Reviewers Are Saying:
- It’s great ‘fur’ the price! (Breaks the day up I suppose!)
- It’s easy to put together
- There’s lots of sisal covered posts for scratching
- The covering is more like a fur than fleece
- Very sturdy, remember to follow the directions with care and tighten all the bolts again in a couple of days time, and then again on a ‘need to’ basis.
There may be a few individuals reading this review and wondering if the Armarkat B7801 Classic Cat Tree is suitable for cats who don’t have any front claws.
The answer is Yes, cats who don’t have any front claws will still be able to climb or jump on to the B7801 because the tiers are designed close enough for kitties manoeuvre up and down easily.
Having claws would make navigation easier but the way that this cat tree is designed, it shouldn’t be a problem.
There was one reviewer in particular who said that her kitty weighs about 19lbs and unfortunately doesn’t have any front claws. However, her cat is able to jump straight to the middle tier of the B7801 without any problem.
If you’re looking for a tall cat tree with a small footprint, the Armarkat B7801 will fit the bill because it’s approximately 6 feet tall and the base is 20” wide x 24” deep.
This model is also ideal for multi-cat homes as they can play on all levels.
