Metropolitan Cat Condo
At first glance, this may look like an elegant yet standard metal-framed bookcase. However, your cats will quickly realize the Metropolitan Cat Condo was designed for them in mind. The stepped design of this modern cat condo allows multiple cats to climb atop, as each large, 13″ x 18.5″ platform provides ample room to perch.
Two types of platform sets are offered: one set with four plush cushions and one scratchpad, or a set with 5 white faux fur pads. You can mix and match the frame color and platform color to your style preference. All platform coverings are removable and washable while the sisal scratchpad is replaceable if worn. Replacement cushions and sisal are available.
Metropolitan Cat Condo is sturdy and includes a safety wall anchor for added security. Your cats will love to race up their personal perch and you’ll love how this modern design looks in your home.

How can I get my cats to use their new cat condo?
If your cats don't notice their new cat tower at first, you can put some catnip on it and then place your cats onto the platforms. You can also place treats on it to lure them over. Cats will love to perch on the top of this cat condo especially if it's placed near a window. It can also be paired with cat wall shelves to give your cats more room to play without giving up floor space.
What do I do if my cat doesn't use this cat condo?
We recommend giving your cat a few weeks to get accustomed to any new cat furniture. Anything new is going to smell strange to them at first. It can help to rub the cat furniture with a piece of fabric with your or your cat's scent on it. Luring your cat onto the cat furniture with treats or catnip is always a good option. We also recommend using toys to encourage playtime on the furniture. If none of this works, we do offer a 60 day "finicky cat" return policy. Please contact customer service for more information.
Where should I put this modern cat condo?
It is best to put a cat tower wherever your cats like to hang out! Usually, that is near a window or wherever their humans like to spend time. We also recommend pairing this cat condo with some cat shelves for your cat to jump up to. This combination of cat furniture will create the ultimate cat room.

Needed something to feed the cats on and to keep the bowls away from the dogs that was easy to clean and not horrible looking as it stands in the kitchen / dining room. This was perfect. We have one messy eater and we can just wipe off the mess. This is sturdy - which is important as one of our cats is 15lbs, but also because our German Shepherd tries to jam her body in it to catch the food spray. It doesn't budge. Great product, worth every penny.
A “friend” came over for lunch once and said of my old carpet style cat tree, “Oh? Did you get a new one? This one is so much better than the last one.” I replied, “I just turned it around.” And then she started backpedaling. But I knew then and there that I couldn’t have a traditional cat tree on the main level of the house. So I searched online and found this cat condo. We bought it on International Cat Day. It was easy to assemble. Only problem was one hole at the bottom of the tower wasn’t drilled correctly and we couldn’t get the foot screw to go in properly. We ended up supergluing something similar to the bottom to make it level. We needed to build it quickly because our cat was upset we got rid of his old house. He didn’t like it for the first few days. I got the gold one with the fluffy white patches on each shelf. I finally figured out that he thought it was a shelf and he was not allowed to climb on it. I ended up finding his old baby kitten blanket and I set him on one fluffy shelf and out his blanket on top and told him this is his new tower. He now sleeps on it. It only took him a few days to adjust. In retrospect, I should have kept the old tower and assembled this one, had it next to it for a few days and then removed the old tower. (Kind of like how we trained the cat for a new litter box) It’s well made. Great item. It looks amazing in our living room. I even sent a photo of it to the “friend” who then said, “Oh, this is so much better.”
I highly recommend it. Worth the money. If I had to change anything, I would have ordered the snack tray platform. But otherwise it’s perfect.
I love the shelf/ cat tree!! It arrived quickly all parts no damage. Great!!! It was easy to put together and Juju loves it. It's temporary in my room because she isn't acclimated to the whole house as of yet. Yes, she is spoiled already. Thanks 😊
My two cats love this tower. It took a while for them to get adjusted to as with anything. Now they both loving hanging out, eating their treats and dinner on it.
This is a high quality and sturdy tower that looks wonderful in the home. The only thing I would like to see improved is the cushions. I feel for the cost they should be a better.
I decided to buy this tree after a newly adopted kitten brought Giardia into my home! Both kitties were sick-- Giardia is super contagious and easily reinfects, so I had to keep my apartment SO clean! That meant both of their carpet-style cat trees had to be washed and soaked in soap and peroxide and sun-dried on the balcony which was a HUGE pain in the rainy PNW. I had been looking at this tree for a while just because of it's visual appeal but the detachable/washable/replaceable platform pillows and scratchers absolutely sold me. It's SO easy to keep clean! It looks great and they LOVE it up against my floor-to-ceiling window because the design is so open. So much bird-watching!
Assembly was super easy-- and I even have some advice-- If your pieces seem to be fitting together wonky/crooked once it's started coming together, I recommend going back through all the way to the bottom and loosening SLIGHTLY and re-tightening your screws; It allows all of the pieces to fall into place via gravity! The feet on the bottom can also be loosened/tightened if you're still experiencing a little bit of wobbliness (nothing is perfect, after all) to even everything out. That done, it stands very sturdy and I personally have had no reason to secure it to the wall, even with a 15 pound cat jumping onto it-- It hasn't budged.
I would LOVE to see more platform styles/options! It'd be lovely to have something with raised edges for kitties who like to be slightly enclosed either as a whole platform or as a plushy platform attachment.
Also regarding the platforms-- The holes are excellent if, like me, you have a drawer of mouse-on-a-string-on-a-stick toys where the string has come detached from the stick-- Using it just like the hanging toy offered on The Refined Feline site.
I honestly can't say enough good things about this cat tree and the site; I really appreciated that there was a 60-day return policy because cats can absolutely be fickle. I'd be really reluctant to make a purchase of this size without it-- I kept my boxes around for a couple days just in case, but there was really no need as the kitties absolutely love the tree! I've kept the site bookmarked because I'm looking forward to what they make in the future.
