With all the cat trees available on the market today; does the Feandrea cat tree with litter box enclosure measure up? Join us as we share what’s good … and what could be better!
My baby girl, Rascal, aka “Sugar Bear,” is anxious to give you all the details! Well…maybe after she wakes up from her nap in her new favorite spot. Thanks, Feandrea!
As you can see, we couldn’t even finish assembly before “Raz” had claimed it all for herself! These pictures speak more than a thousand words in this review ever could…

Is Feandrea a good company?
This is an easy yes! I’ve been a fan of Feandrea cat trees for quite a while, and I’m not the only one. Feandrea’s Amazon Storefront is loaded with rave reviews from pet parents everywhere. Their quality is excellent, especially for the price, and they have a wide range of pet essentials.
When they reached out to me and offered to send one of their cat trees for our 5 crazy (but oh so adorable!) cats, we were over the moon excited and couldn’t wait to share the review with all of you!
None have been more excited than Rascal, though.
I’m also a sucker for their story too because every one of our cuties are rescues, and they’re amazing. Here’s how the Feandrea name came to be and what drives all the passion for what they do. From abandoned to adored — it doesn’t get any better than that!
Our story began in 2018 when two abandoned kittens, Fe and Rea, joined our family. At the time, we had just developed our first cat tree. Fe and Rea loved it so much that it inspired us to produce more products for them. And just like that, the idea for Feandrea was born.
Similar to our love for Fe and Rea, we aim to spread the love to more fur friends and their families.— Feandrea About Us
Pros & Cons of the Feandrea Cat Tree with Litter Box Enclosure
Our cat crew absolutely loves cat trees, but this is our first one with an attached litter box enclosure. To us, the convenience of having 2-in-1 is really nice. If you’ve ever been shopping for high-quality cat trees or litter box enclosures, you know that both can get extremely expensive! Plus, if you have limited space in your home, this type of tree is perfect!
Here’s what our cat masters think … oh, and the human slaves too!
How easy was it to put together?
As you can see, my girl Rascal clearly had it all figured out and would’ve had it put together in a snap if she’d only had thumbs! So the issue here could’ve just been us. We’ve been especially busy lately and were tired when we assembled this late in the evening. However, we got hung up on a few of the steps for some odd reason. We had to disassemble a few of the pieces at the very beginning because we had put them together facing the wrong direction but we didn’t realize it until we were a couple of steps ahead and it just wasn’t looking right. 😀
But yeah, honestly, the instructions could have been easier to follow, and it will take a little figuring out! If possible, 2 people working together helps!
Once you get past the first few pieces, it becomes much easier to envision how it all fits together and the rest of the process goes quickly. Here are a few photos I took of some of the steps.
(Sorry for the poor picture quality. It was late at night and our old home has terrible lighting!)
Thankfully, no pieces required for assembly were missing. As many of you know, this isn’t always the case! Rascal was in charge of quality control, and decided we had all we needed!
Comfort & Design
I love the faux fur material that Feandrea used! It is incredibly soft, cozy, and luxurious. In my opinion, it’s by far the softest bed material of all our cat trees! Our kiddos definitely agree!
The only thing I was surprised by was the lack of padding for the top bed. It has excellent cushioning on the sides but the bottom has little. You can see what I mean in the first photo below. This is an easy fix, though. You can just put a thin blanket underneath the “bed liner” for extra softness. As you can see, these just stretch over the frame which makes cleaning extra simple!
The second and third photo show the middle shelf napping spot and inside the little house. Both of these have ultra soft (but thin) liners that remind me of small luxury blankets. These attach using small strips of velcro so they won’t be slipping or sliding! Also, very easy to remove and clean!
Our big boy Pips (around 14 pounds) was able to comfortably nap inside the house, on the shelf, and on the top bed. I think most cats would find this plenty roomy, except for maybe the bowl, which is true of most I’ve seen.
At 22.6″L x 19.7″W x 55.1″H, this is a medium-sized cat tree, and in our opinion, would be great for smaller spaces like apartments. Having the litter box enclosure makes it even more space-saving. It also works great as storage for cat supplies or toys if you choose not to put the litter box inside.
Most importantly, this cat tree does not feel like cheap junk. Bill and I both commented about how sturdy it felt at this price point. Particleboard construction (like this) can be made so cheap that you just know it won’t last 6 months. I don’t think that’s true here, and I can see why they have earned high ratings.
The adjustable feet are also a Godsend for people like us in old homes where nothing is level! This helps add to the feel of sturdiness.
I chose the greige color and am very pleased with how it looks. It’s a great blend of brown and grey, in my opinion. I was expecting it to be a silvery greyish color but this definitely has warm brown tones in it.
The sisal scratching posts seem to be a great height (but short) for scratching and the lower platform helps my kitties who aren’t big jumpers!
I also think the 3 pom poms for play at the top are a nice touch. Feandrea even sent an extra 3 balls for replacements when things get a little too crazy 😉
Will the litter box enclosure hold my litter box?
The internal measurements of the enclosure are 21.7” in length x 16.1” in width x 15.7” high. A quick measurement of your current litter box is all you need to know if that will work for you.
The litter box I placed in this enclosure was our XL litter box with a low-entry front. It was a tight squeeze, and I did have to tilt one end down to get it to fit. Once inside though, there was plenty of room. There is enough room for our cats to get inside the box from the entry hole as well.
Even though our XL box fits, I would recommend using a box that isn’t so tall. It is exactly 3 inches from the floor of that enclosure to the bottom of the entry hole for your cat.
Having a litter box that is only 3 – 4 inches high on the sides would keep the enclosure entrance from being blocked too much.
It might make more sense if I show you how our XL box fits inside…
Our litter box is a little over 7 inches tall/deep at the front so you can see how that slightly blocks the opening. It could also be a tight fit for a cat to stand up inside the enclosure and do their business comfortably. This could lead to your cat not using the litter box at all so it’s best to use a litter box that they can easily move around in while standing inside the litter box enclosure.
For cats with mobility issues, the step up into this box is only 4 inches from the floor so that should be fairly easy for most cats, as long as the box inside isn’t taller than the opening.
Our cats have enjoyed the exploration of it all and have had no issues with going inside. Every cat’s personality is different, but my bet is that most cats would use this without an issue.
You could also add a bamboo charcoal bag inside the enclosure to help with odors. We love these and recommended them in our post about litter-training cats.

We think this Feandrea cat tree with litter box enclosure is a pretty great deal! Not only will it save you space but it will save you money too. Quality cat furniture and litter box enclosures are expensive. Feandrea is affordable and the quality isn’t bad at all.
This particular cat tree may not be the best for really large cats, though, so keep that in mind.
I also like that this piece of furniture is versatile. It doesn’t have to be used as a litter box enclosure. You could put your cat’s favorite bed in there and make it an extra cat cave. Or you could store cat care essentials like toys, litter, etc. It’s excellent storage for small spaces.
We definitely think Feandrea is worth your consideration. Any questions? I’d be glad to help if I can. Reach out in the comments section below or use the contact form.
