Cat trees provide a little space in your home that your pets can call their own. They provide a place for cats to play and sleep and they also give cats high perches from which they can sit and watch the world go by.

II. 5 Best Cat Tree for Large Cat Reviews.
Below, you will find five cat trees that we have selected as being suitable for large cats. They all have large platforms and at least one cat house that a large cat could fit comfortably into. The other criteria that makes a cat tree suitable for large cats are the stability, so we have chosen to review only those models that have a large enough base to be stable when a large cat climbs on them.
1. Go Pet Club Cat Tree - 72 inch
The Go Pet Club 72 inch Cat Tree is our choice of overall best cat tree for large cats. The cat tree has three, good sized elevated levels and two large condos that are certainly big enough for large cats. The tree is made out of a sturdy, plywood type of material that, when the tree has been fully assembled, will hold the weight of several large cats with no problem at all.
Assembling the Go Pet Club Cat Tree is straight forward and the instructions are clear and easy to understand. Putting the cat tree together may take a while, though, simply because it is so big and there are so many parts.
The platforms and the condos are covered with a soft faux fur, which is warm and inviting and fairly thick. The scratching posts are covered in natural sisal rope, which will stand up to a cat’s scratching and should tempt pets away from scratching at the furniture.
In summary, the Go Pet Club 72 inch Cat Tree has plenty of ramps, perches and condos to keep a cat interested and it is built with high quality materials. It’s big enough for multiple cats and sturdy enough to hold the weight of large cats.
2. Go Pet Club Cat Tree, Brown, F49
The Go Pet Club Cat Tree F49 is a much more compact cat tee than the 72 inch model we described above. This cat tree stands at 47.5 inches, has three elevated levels, and good sized condo on the first level.
We have rated this Go Pet Club model the best cat tree for large cats, in terms of value. The faux fur covering is soft and warm for cats and the condo is large enough for a big cat to comfortably sleep in. Because this cat tree has a larger base and is not as tall as some models, it is very stable, so even with some big, boisterous cats playing on it, it won’t topple over. Its relatively small size also makes it easier to move the cat tree from one location to another within the home.
Assembling the Go Pet Club Cat Tree F49 is easy and it comes with detailed instructions. The only thing that we found a bit tricky to put tougher was the ladder. Like all cat trees, it is important that you tighten the screws up tight; otherwise, you will find that the platforms can wobble.
The Go Pet Club Cat Tree F49 would make a great cat tree for a large cat and it is a lot less obtrusive than some of the taller cat tree models we have looked at.
3. Merax Cat House Activity Tree
Merax make some wonderfully interesting cat trees and this one looks more like a cat castle than a simple cat tree. One of the best cat trees for large cats, the Merax Cat House Activity Tree has lots of different levels for cats to play and perch on and it has two cat houses for when cats want to hide away.
The cat tree comes in a striking coffee and beige colour scheme with super-soft, high quality faux fur on the platforms and natural sisal rope on the scratching posts. The tree is well-built and sturdy, so it will hold heavy cats, and it’s very stable on the ground as well.
The Merax Cat House Activity Tree is quite large at 68.5 inches tall, but it will still fit neatly into the corner of a room. Most of the perches are a good size too, making it a suitable cat tree for a number of large cats. The activity tree is relatively straightforward to assemble, although the instructions could be a little bit clearer.
Overall, the Merax Cat House Activity Tree is a cat tree that cats will love to play on and most of the platforms are big enough for large cats to get some sleep on comfortably too.
4. Merax Cat Activity Tree Cat Tower with Condo/House
Our next pick of the best cat tree for large cats is another nice looking model from Merax. This one is 72 inches tall, so it’s ideal for large cats who love to climb up high. It has two cat condos. One is very large and is spacious enough for a cat to stretch out in, the other is much smaller in size, but still large enough for medium sized cat.
The platforms and the condos are covered in a soft, beige coloured faux fur and the many scratching posts are covered in hard-wearing sisal rope. The Merax Cat Activity Tree Cat Tower with Condo/House is quite easy to put together, but once again, the instructions could be made a little bit easier to understand.
The instructions aside, though, our overall impression of this model is that is a good and sturdy cat tree that will withstand large cats playing and sleeping on it. We also liked the beautiful beige colour of the faux fur, which would fit it in nicely in most people’s homes.
5. BestPet CT9073 Cat Tree Condo
Our final choice in our rundown of best cat tree for large cats is the BestPet CT9073 Cat Tree Condo, which is a three tier cat activity tree with two cat condos.
The cat tree is covered in a chocolate brown faux fur covering that is soft and warm. Inside the cat houses, there is fur on the floor, but we did note that there is not fur on the inside of the walls, not that it seemed to deter cats from curling up and going to sleep inside the house.
The tree reaches a total height of 73 inches, and there are plenty of platforms and ladders to keep cats amused. There are also three, rope covered, scratching poles towards the top of the tree that should help stop cats scratching at furniture.
The BestPet CT9073 Cat Tree Condo was about the easiest of all the cat trees that we have reviewed to assemble and the instructions were very easy to understand. When the tree is fully built, it is quite stable for such a tall cat tree as well.
This is nice looking and sturdy cat tree that cats will love to play on and it’s large enough and strong enough for large cats too.
