Looking For The Best Cat Tree For Multiple Cats?
Here’s a look at our favorites, including our top pick – Ollieroo Cat Tree Furniture Tower.
Cat trees are a great investment when you have multiple cats. A good cat tree will give your cats scratching posts to keep their claws off of your furniture, a lofty perch to keep an eye on the room, a covered hut for comfortable cat-naps, and some much-needed exercise and play.
What to look for in cat trees for multiple cats
As you’re looking at cat trees for multiple cats, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Scratching posts – any good cat tree should have a few scratching posts. These posts are ideal for cleaning and sharpening your cats’ claws, providing a good stretch and light exercise every time they use it. Scratching surfaces made with natural sisal are best.
- Platforms – the more cats you have, the more platforms you’ll need to keep them all happy. They don’t all need to offer a cozy cube or bed, but it’s good to have a few comfortable options to choose from (most of the ones we’ll talk about today have a cozy cube and an open bed/hammock, so there are at least two resting platforms).
- Height – take your cat’s propensity for heights into account. If your cats are afraid of heights, you won’t want a tall tree. If one or more of them are the kind of cats that like to perch on the highest spot in the room, then you’ll definitely want to get one that has a tree-top perch.
- Cozy cubes – a good cat tree should have at least one covered cozy cube or hut.
- Hammocks – in my experience, cats can be pretty finicky when it comes to hammocks. They’re a fun add-on but given the choice I’d always opt for a covered hut over a hammock.
- Heavy-Duty Construction – taller isn’t always better. If your cat tree is too light or is improperly balanced, it’ll topple over and permanently ruin the tree for your cats. Once a cat views something in the house as dangerous, they’ll usually avoid it like the plague. Plus, you don’t want to injure any of your cats if it falls over while they’re playing on it. Look for cat trees with a wide base, heavy duty materials, and sturdy connections.
- Toys – toys aren’t entirely necessary, but they’re a fun bonus for your cat that adds some mental stimulation to their play time.

It has a removable cushion and scratching surfaces, along with rounded corners and edges for a softer feel.

The Cat Tree Condo by SONGMICS is another great option for multiple cats, as it has three perches, a cozy cube, a hammock, and plenty of scratching space (if that’s not enough for your kitties to share, I’m not sure what will be).
The perches, cozy cube, and hammock are all lined with plush padding to create a comfortable, relaxing, and calming atmosphere. All of the posts are covered with natural sisal, which is the best material for scratching posts (your couches and drapes will thank you for the reprieve). It’s safe and sturdy with a heavy-duty CARB-certified base and a safety strap that helps to prevent the cat tree from toppling over.
