More Details

The Overlook is a deluxe version of the smaller Grotto Cat Tree. What sets it apart from our other options is not only its size, but it also expands on the types of spaces and has 3 very different levels of privacy. This option works great for multi-cat households because there are multiple routes leading in and out of each resting space, to avoid cats from being cornered. It also comes with a ladder for smaller cats to use to access the mid-level of the structure.

To promote exercise and play, we’ve spaced the hammocks out to create a gap on either side, which can be used to play with your cat using toys or entice cats to paw at each other from the different levels.

The bamboo panels have cut-out triangles that can be used to expand your cat’s view and work really well for playtime. They give cats a chance to practice their hunting skills with their favorite cat wand by hiding behind the panels and then popping out for a surprise attack through the window.

You can open up your cat’s vantage point with the Window Panel Upgrade. This variation has a larger cutout on the second level

Lower level – The most private area is located at the bottom of the structure, perfect for cats that prefer tighter and more secluded spaces. From this area, your cat has triangle cut-out windows to peer and reach through. The largest cat in my house prefers this level because he has a track record of being hunted by other cats. He likes the closed-off cubby, which gives him a relaxing place to nap or observe his environment.

Middle level – For smaller cats, this level can be accessed by climbing up a ladder. For adult cats, it’s low enough to jump up to. It’s made from a solid bamboo shelf with a removable/washable plush faux fur pad to rest on. From this level, a cat can sit on the plush pad with guard against cats sneaking up the ladder and through the Escape Hatch. If they’re unable to hold off the intruder, the middle level sits only 22 inches (56 cm) from the ground, so even smaller cats can jump down to the floor to make a quick escape. It also has two walls for a medium level of privacy. The triangular cut-outs in the wall work well for playing with toys.

Top level – The top of the structure is made up of an extra large 12in (30cm) x 20in (50cm) heavyweight canvas hammock, with ledges to lean against, but that are low enough to allow your cat to observe any direction around their perch. This level is extended higher, so that it can only be accessed by cats able to jump up 16 inches (41 cm). Cats like it because it has a 360-degree view from the hammock and there is only one way for another cat to try and crash the party. Even as the highest level, it only sits 38 inches (96 cm) from the floor and any cat able to jump up in the first place can jump down in any direction to the floor without a problem.

These cat trees are made from solid sustainable bamboo, metal poles, heavyweight canvas, two sisal pads and high-end plush faux fur. All elements are fully removable, washable and replaceable.

Love the Overlook

Excellent. The Overlooked arrived ahead of time and was very easy to assemble (took a bit longer because kitty kept trying to “help”). Its rightful owner (my cat) started investing it right away and is discovering tires and ways to enjoy it every day! We just need to find the best place for it now.

Hello Pamela, thank you so much for leaving a review! We are glad to hear that your kitty was able to give you a helping hand during your installation so that they could get to the fun as fast as possible! If you need anything else in the future please let us know and we will always gladly help.

What a great cat tree

Putting this tree together I was really impressed with the quality of the materials. The thing is solid, my 17lb boy can dig his nails into the sisal mat on the side to help hoist his body up to the top without a worry of this tree tipping over. So far I have found him lounging in the top and bottom and it makes a very fun play area as well.

Thank you so much for leaving this awesome review, as well as providing pictures of your cat! He is adorable and we are so happy to hear that he is using all parts of his Overlook. If you need anything in the future, please feel free to reach out to us!

Success!

It’s taken a few weeks, but my guy is finally including The Overlook among his favorite sleeping spots. He’s happily sleeping on the top hammock in the morning sun right now. The scale is a little small for his large Maine Coon frame, but he’s not complaining.

Thank you so much for the kind words Abigail! You have installed the Overlook very well, and we are glad that your cat is enjoying the sun on his new furniture! If there is anything else you need, feel free to reach out to us.

My boys love it !!! xD

Not only does this tree look great, but it’s also incredibly solidly built (according to my engineer boyfriend). Since getting it, my boys Hank and Louis love playing with it and it definitely encourages additional play. Louis also loves to loaf on the top hammock, while Hank loves to attack him from below. This will be the last cat tree I ever need to purchase. Totally worth the price.

Thank you so much for these kind words Lauren! Your cats are adorable and we are very happy to see how much they are enjoying your furniture. If you or your cats ever need anything in the future feel free to contact us!

Perfect! Beautiful, easy to put together, and the cats love it! The perfect perch for our cat who likes to guard the front door.

Different Parts

  • Ladder, escape hatch​

    The Overlook comes with a shelf that extends out from the core structure. This shelf can be used by cats either to jump up to the top level or to take the escape hatch hole down the canvas ladder to the lower level.

  • Sisal mat for a cat tree up close

    Sisal Mat

    Each cat tree comes with your choice of charcoal gray or natural-colored sisal mats. The mats have a unique shape to match the design of the cat tree and the edges are sewn to give them a finished look. They are attached to the trees with a very strong-hold velcro, so they can be removed and replaced over time.

  • Plush Pad​

    The Overlook comes with a plush faux fur pad, which can be added to any level of the cat tree, but has been designed to be attached to the middle section. It can be removed from the structure with velcro and the foam pad can be taken out of the faux fur cover for washing.

Modern Cat Tree Features

  • Fabric Gaps

    The gaps on either side of the hammocks have two functions. They expand the area for your cat to stretch out and they also promote exercise and play. They’re spaced so that cats can either play through the gap with each other or with you and their favorite cat toy.

  • Cat looking through window on The Grotto Cat Tree

    Triangle Cutouts

    The side walls have triangle windows cut out that can be used to expand your cat’s view when lounging in two of the resting spots and that also work really well for playtime. They give your cat a chance to practice their hunting skills with their favorite cat wand by hiding behind the panels and then popping out for a surprise attack through the window.

  • Sustainable Bamboo

    The cat trees are made from sustainable bamboo. Bamboo grows incredibly fast and because of that, requires no pesticides. After it’s harvested, its roots remain in the ground and do not need to be replanted like many other crops. Bamboo is a grass rather than a hardwood, which makes it more water-resistant and therefore is great for cleaning.

Step-by-step guide

Easy Assembly.

After eight years of focusing on how to make cat furniture assembly easier, we wanted to release a product that can be easily assembled by anyone in minutes. These cat trees come with every tool you will need to assemble them. It takes about seven minutes to assemble the Grotto and about 12 minutes to assemble the Overlook. Although they come with step-by-step instructions, we will also have video instructions available prior to shipping the cat trees out.
