This is an o.k. cat tree. After 4 months of heavy use from 6 kittens, the wood supporting the upper deck is cracked but still functional. The hanging toy has broken off completely leaving a sad little chain. The scratching post for some reason has never interested my cats, but they prefer a separate scratching post that is in the same room. PROS: They absolutely love the curved shape of the two resting spots. The three levels provide fun play as the kitties will battle for the top tier. The cats do enjoy the tree. It is definitely better than no tree at all. Depending on your specific needs however, I would shop around a little bit more before settling with this one.
