Usual cat trees aren’t about any real trees, this is just a name. But this piece is inspired by realistic-looking cat trees and looks accordingly! The resulting piece is a cat tree that really resembles a tree and there are even rocks downside to imitate a landscape! The rocks are big enough so that neither cat will understandably mistake the base for a litter pan nor it will try to eat them. The stepping stones allow them to walk around the base and will help you keep costs down since they are so much cheaper than the rocks.
