Triboard- The key to us being able to give our 10-Year Structural Warranty is the base and landings. It's made from 100 percent sustainable New Zealand Radiata pine and adheres to strict quality and environmental guidelines. Over and above anything else available, the stable core provides superior load-bearing and screw-holding advantages. Although more pricey, we believe it is necessary for our Cat Trees.

Pine Poles - Upright Poles Our circular uprights are made of solid New Zealand pine that is 100 millimetres thick, and we glue and staple our carpet to them. Because of this, even after your cat has completely damaged the carpet, we can still recover it.

Carpet- We only use carpets with a cut pile (loop pile carpets might snag your cat's claws), and the majority of the quality carpets we use are created in New Zealand. For instance, the cost of a Cavalier Bremworth carpet can reach more than $300 per linear metre, but each New Yorker requires more than 2.25 linear metres of carpeting.

Sisal- Our Sisal is of maritime grade, and it is hand-wound onto our uprights using industrial staples. This Sisal is there for the cat that thinks it's a tiger and has an attitude; we believe ours to be the toughest on the market, so bring it on!!!!

Colours and Extras

Within the shopping cart's section, there is a box in which you can enter your request. Let us know if you like a colour that you have seen on any of our other models, and we will do our best to accommodate your request to have that colour applied to this model.

Because we construct each of our trees in-house, we are able to fulfil the majority of our customers' needs. There is a possibility that this will incur additional costs, however we will tell you of these costs before we construct your unit.

Once more, this is something that we are able to perform for an additional fee. You can send us an email with your request, and we will respond with a price estimate.

That is dependent upon your feline friend. Sisal is durable enough to survive the claws of a cat for many months or even years. Nevertheless, some felines like the plusher texture of carpet.


If you choose one of our bigger cat trees, it may take a bit longer to arrive as these units are made to order. Your tracking information will be sent to you immediately after your item/s are shipped. To transport them around New Zealand, for our larger trees we strap and pack them on pallets once they've left our factory you will be contacted by our bulk freight company.

Absolutely not! Each of our cat trees is shipped out of our factory in a completely built state. Once our cat trees have been delivered, you will not need to screw or glue them together.

We do, and we've already sent New Yorkers to Australia. It is not cheap, and you must email us with your address to receive a firm quote. The cost of shipping a New Yorker to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, or Adelaide by sea is around $1227.35.

We do not pass on the complete cost of freight because it is prohibitively expensive to ship huge cat trees within New Zealand. Consider that transporting a New Yorker to your location would be similar to sending a sizable refrigerator there.

Recovering my old scratcher

Yes, if it's one of our own. If it's possible to bring it to our facility, we can usually have it restored to its original condition within a week. A fee will be charged if you live in Auckland and want us to pick up and drop off.

Depending on the model, most cat trees only require the uprights to be refurbished. Single posts typically range between $40 and $70, and large cat trees require an email with a photo so that we can provide you with an accurate quote.

We are unable to do so due to the fact that the vast majority of scratching posts sold in pet stores are constructed of cardboard, which makes it difficult for our carpet to adhere to.

Very Happy cat

He just loves his cat tree. Playing, watching birds, sleeping, surveying his kingdom. So glad I got it for him.

Jo (Wellington, NZ)
Great company, great product!

Great company: I rang up the company as I wanted sisal and surrounds on all levels (like some other customers had done in the past) and I wasn't sure how to specify this and what the cost would be. A very helpful guy told me that he could make a quick change to the web site (took him less than 5 mins!) and then my "Sisal and surrounds on all levels" option was available along with the price. This all worked perfectly. Plus the Chicago also arrived exactly on the day he said it would, was securely packed for travel and was exactly as I requested.
Great product: The product is very stable and is very well made. Plus it is 100% approved by the cat with all 3 levels having been used to nap on. So although it is a little more expensive than some cat towers out there, I think it is better value for money than them because you can easily see that it is superior quality and will outlast all of those.

John Bradshaw (Auckland, NZ)

Our kittens love it. It's well made compared to the flimsy other cat trees out there. It's very stable especially with "very energetic" kittens practising their "parkour" style of play. Great communication with emails and delivery to your door fantastic. I've noticed my wife has been checking out the website again and I suspect our kittens will be getting a "Christmas" present this year :)

Charlotte (Auckland, NZ)

These cat trees are honestly sooo worth the extra bucks! They are so sturdy and well built, And my kitties just love them! I got this to pair with the New Yorker So they can jump over to it as well! They seem to really love it. Stoked! Customer service is amazing too they really help you to match colours and go the extra mile! Thanks guys

Julie (Christchurch, NZ)
Great purchase!

Suki absolutely loves her new cat tower, and thinks she is the queen of the house when she is lounging on the top! So glad I got the posts in sisal, being a Ragdoll even at 5 months a standard scratching post was getting too small for her. Staff were super helpful in customising and came safely packaged all the way from Auckland down to Queenstown!

lewes (New Plymouth, NZ)

What else needs to be said. Should have brought two though. We have a Maine Coon and a Birman and they both feel they should be "top cat" Extremely well made and doesn't tip even when our Maine Coon makes a running leap. They used Mainfreight for delivery who were extremely professional

Michelle (Napier City, NZ)
Best tower ever

This is our 3rd product, have a large pole and a smaller tower. All superior lasting items. Our 2 cats love this tower. They even snuggle together on the top. (6.5kg cat and 3.5kg cat). Our large cat jumps and runs up it a lot and it’s very sturdy. I requested a particular colour so that it matched our lounge and they were so accommodating and even sent a photo before sending it. An item used daily, well worth it.

Geraldine Lloyd (Auckland, NZ)
Katattack Chicago

i just purchased a KatAttack Chicago my 2 Maine Coones love it they both try to9 see who can get the top shelf. these trees are the best for large cats like a Maine Coone as they are suck big cats. Poles and shelves are tough and made for big cats. this is my second tree from this company. Highly recommend them to others.

Sarah Tindill (Auckland, NZ)
Paws of approval!!

Both cats love their new Chicago! Big enough for both to sleep and play/rumble on. Amazing local Kiwi company with outstanding service. Was able to customise details to make it exactly what I wanted. Highly recommend!

Shirley Jones (Auckland, NZ)
Quality cat tree

Our cats love this cat tree. This is the second Chicago cat tree so each cat has their own tree. They are Ragdoll cats and the platform is large enough for them. I absolutely rate this tree 10/10.
