Best Cat Trees for Large Cats

Most cat trees are designed to have as many obstacles and points of interest as possible. While this suits most cats, capturing their need to play, jump, and simulate hunting, it’s not ideal for the larger or older cats.

Let’s not mince our words, a lot of cats are lazy. All they want to do is relax, sleep, eat, sleep, and relax some more. If you have a cat like this, I recommended finding a less interactive tree.
Something they can just climb on easily and sleep will be more than suitable. Maybe you just have a large breed like a maine coon, or your cat is a little overweight (don’t worry, I’m not here to judge).

So throughout this article I will show you some of the best cat trees for large cats. Picking up one of these will make your kitty a lot happier, you’re more likely to see them use it, and you’ll get better value.

Why Finding the Best Cat Tree If You Have a Large Cat Is Important

Have you ever bought a cat toy, or a cat tree and wondered why your cats do not use them? We’ve all been there, cats can be very fickle creatures. Often preferring to sleep on a pile of clean clothes than their own bed.

Cats are individual animals, and require some thought. So if you have a large cat, buy a tree that has plenty of space, is easy to climb up, and is comfortable.

This will maximize the chance of your cats using it. You can of course use some of that kitty persuasion too. Putting some treats, catnip, or whatever they like on the new tree.

Cats are often curious enough to test any new product anyway. You shouldn’t have too many problems getting them to make the most of their new furniture.
Here are some of the best.

Reviews of the Best Cat Trees for Large Cats

Molly and Friends Simple Sleeper Large Cat Tree

Molly and Friends Simple Sleeper Large Cat TreeThis is a lough heaven for one or two cats. The rest areas are easy for large cats to get onto, and there is a nice big space for them to relax.

This Molly and Friends “Simple Sleeper” Premium Handmade 2-Tier Cat Tree with Sisal is one of many of their trees the offer. It’s a simple, strong, and durable tree.

Molly and Friends always use high quality materials, and their products rarely, if ever, fail. I have never seen or heard of anyone having problems with the manufacturing quality. Which is why I’m confident recommending their products.

Molly and Friends Loft and Round 2-Tier Cat Tree

Molly and Friends Loft and Round 2-Tier Cat TreeThis tree is called Molly and Friends “Loft and Round” Premium Handmade 2-Tier Cat Tree and is absolutely spot on for large cats.

Even the largest and most lazy of cats can climb into the large tube on the bottom. There is a little hole in the top too, so they can keep their wits about them and keep an eye out for any action.

I’ve seen cats playing on this tree in a video and it provided enough to keep cats amused and happy. It’s soft, comfortable carpet, so at the very least it will become a new favorite place to sleep.

It’s good value for money too. I’d take a closer look at this being a second tree, just as a first.

Molly and Friends Step Stool Sleeper 4-Tier Cat Tree

Molly and Friends Step Stool Sleeper 4-Tier Cat TreeI thought this one would be of interest to some of you. Especially if you have several cats. It’s another Molly and Friends product, as they really do have an extensive range of cat trees suitable for larger cats.

This Molly and Friends “Step Stool Sleeper” Premium Handmade 4-Tier Cat Tree is 66” tall. It has four platforms, so there is a level for the lazy, to the adventurous.

The rope covered center is a scratching post. So your kitties will direct their attention to this instead of your furniture. The base is really strong and spreads the weight well. So don’t worry about a heavy cat tipping the tree over.

There is an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from owners on this tree. So take a closer look, if you like what you see no need to hesitate picking one up.

New Cat Condos Triple Cat Perch

New Cat Condos Triple Cat PerchI love this New Cat Condos Triple Cat Perch and cats do too! I like how it looks simple and stylish. Fits in with most, if not all homes and isn’t an eyesore.

There are three large trays for cats to sleep on. They are set up in a tiered build, so cats can just walk up to the desired level.

It’s a great tree for not just large cats, but older cats too. As you can see from the picture, there is enough room for cats to have their own space on each level.

As I have a couple of cats around the 16 year age mark, I’m probably going to pick up one of these in the next year or so.
