It’s no secret to cat parents. Cats love to climb as high as possible. It gives them a feeling of safety and exercises their muscles. If we don’t provide them their own furniture to do so – well, they’ll gladly
use tear up ours theirs! 😀 That’s where this 62″ Yaheetech cat tree is a God-send!
Disclosure: Recently, I was contacted by a representative from Yaheetech, offering us a free 62″ Yaheetech cat tree in exchange for a fair and honest review of their product.
I was surprised, honored and blessed to be chosen for such a gift. Truly, I want to first say thank you to Yaheetech for offering us this opportunity. ♥
I’ll be completely honest here. While I was very excited to receive this product in exchange for a review, I was also nervous! I can’t recommend something that we think is no good.
Thankfully, what we received is a cat tree worth recommending. Cat Daddy Bill is duly impressed as well!
Cat furniture can be cheaply made, unbelievably so. I’ve seen some cat trees that costed a fortune and weren’t worth $5. Our felines are tough on stuff!
It’s important we have pieces of furniture for them that can stand the test of time & don’t break our bank either! This Yaheetech cat tree fits the bill!
If you are looking for value and durability, read on because you will love this one!
Yaheetech Customer Service & Shipping
First, I’d like to briefly touch on a few equally important points about purchasing from Yaheetech.
Customer service: Wow. 5 out of 5 stars! Communication was prompt, courteous, helpful and all-around fantastic! When I originally received the offer to review their product, I wasn’t sure it was legitimate. (So many scams nowadays!)
That led me to send an email straight to Yaheetech within Amazon’s communication system. Within hours, I had heard back stating that this was indeed an offer from the company.
Not only that, but the woman I dealt with, Sara (thank you!), was delightful to email with. She clearly communicated what they needed from me, when the item had shipped, kept me updated along the way, etc. It was a breath of fresh air to deal with Yaheetech.
Shipping: From the time I accepted, their cat tree condo was at my door in 2 days via FedEx Home delivery! If you are an Amazon Prime member, it is even eligible for free 1 or 2 day Prime shipping at the time of writing this article.
Our Experience With The 62″ Yaheetech Cat Tree Condo
Arrival: The shipping box was secured and well packed inside. Zero complaints here.
Assembly Prep: I don’t know about you, but one of the most frustrating things to encounter is when you are preparing to put something together and you’re missing a part!
I wanted to be sure that wasn’t the case with this one. Taking each piece out one-by-one, I laid them out on the floor arranged by their assigned number. I grabbed the assembly instructions book and checked to ensure all the parts were there. Not one thing was missing! Thank you Yaheetech! 😀
Ease of Assembly: Another 5 out of 5 stars from me. Putting this cat tree condo together takes very little effort. Even the most assembly-challenged among us can handle getting this together in no time.
The assembly instructions booklet could be a little clearer in some parts, but it’s nothing that prevents you from finishing the job.
The individual pieces of this cat tree have little sticky numbers attached to them. The instruction booklet clearly shows you where each number is supposed to go. Line them up accordingly and you’re done! And yes, it will tell you how many you should have of each as well in total.
There is a provided allen wrench and that is the only tool required for assembly. It honestly could not be easier. Most people will have this piece of furniture assembled in 30 minutes to 1 hour.
If you’re a little stuck in places – simply having a look at the finished product picture will help you understand clearly where your next piece will go. I promise you – you can do it!
Dizzy Tested & Approved
Our Dizzy can be a tough critic when it comes to cat toys or anything new for her “kingdom.” Both Bill and I were very curious how she would respond to such a big piece.
Kitty curiosity wins again! As soon as she came in from her little stroll outside, she immediately investigated this beautiful piece of art that’s allll hers! 🙂 After that, she tested out every nook and cranny of it she could!
As you can see, the color and quality of the fabric used are excellent. The plush carpet is incredibly soft to the touch. This cat tree is the dark grey color and it has a beautiful bluish tint to it. It will easily blend in with various home decor.
What was most surprising to us was how much she loves the plush bed at the top. It’s not so much that we are surprised she likes it. We are just surprised she favors it most of the time over her favorite blankets in the bay window. (She is the best neighborhood watch there is!)
I must say, I’d probably nap there too because it feels amazing to the touch. See how much cushion there is in these photos below?
I love my tree! ❤
Thank you Yaheetech!
The ball hanging from the bed has a little bell on it. She has had a blast playing with that!

The image above gives you a really good idea of the size from every angle on this piece. 62 inches equals just shy of 5 feet 2 inches. If you think of your own height in comparison, that might help give you a strong idea of how tall this cat tree is.
My personal opinion is that this cat tree would be a good size for apartments or smaller homes. It works best up against a flat wall, unless you are prepared for it to stick out a bit on an angle.
The 8″ tunnel in the middle was big enough for Dizzy to go through when we teased her with a string. She thought that was a great game!
Other Noteworthy Features
As you can see in the image above, each scratch post is wrapped in a very strong sisal rope. Let me assure you of this, Dizzy has scratched on every single one! Guess that means they are perfect height for kitties!
Sisal rope is known for its durability so with this many posts to choose from, I don’t think you’ll have a problem with the scratchers wearing out too quickly. It should also help if you have cats who are tearing up your furniture.
E1 particle board construction ensures that your cat’s favorite hangout will last for years to come.
An attached safety strap on the back side of the tree is available if you feel additional stability is needed. It can easily be attached to any wall and won’t budge!
The one & only minor gripe I have is that this cat tree does have a little bit of a wobble on our floor. (Not everyone will experience this) It isn’t enough to bother Dizzy in the slightest. But you may want to carefully plan what type of floor (and how level it is) when placing this piece in your home. Remedying this issue would be a piece of cake. That’s why I can’t take anything away from this great cat tree for such a small problem.
Great for multi-cat homes. If you are running out of places to sit because your kitties are already taking up the best spots – try this! 🙂 Although there is only one bed at the top – there are still lots of places for them to lay and/or play.
