Good news is, they absolutely love it even though they seem to be using just the lowest level. They also went nuts over those cardboard balls.
I haven't been able to get good photos of kitties in it, since they move too fast Smiley They run in, rub their head against every opening, roll around as if it was made of catnip and then run out again. Lol.

That photo itself looks like an advertisement for it! 

That's great that the kitties all seem to love it.  How funny that they're just using the bottom for now.  Maybe they're conserving.   Wink

So cute!  And portable!  But I'm afraid Ernie might crush it-- he's a tad "husky"...

Years ago we paid $$ for a 5' tall one, and our girl kitty jumped on the top shelf and stayed there all day, drooling with glee.

Alek,
Cool!   Cool  Could the second and third levels just be difficult for them to jump into?  Maybe the angle hard to negotiate?  Is it stable enough?  Just some thoughts!   Wink

MC wondered same thing while looking at the pic. Is it difficult to be able to get to 2nd level?

eHow.com has some cardboard cat funiture suggestions for the creative done with paper masking tape, a compass, rug reminants, as well as ideas how to secure
levels. And to keep it from being tipped over, weighting with a "sand sock." Not as cute
as this Caboodle one, though.

Aleko, do your larger/longer kitties fit in it OK?  I think this is a great idea and its very reasonably priced...I just dont know if Sophers would fit in it....what do you think?

I think she would definitely fit on the lower level, Stefie and Mitzie can squeeze in there together. Higher levels I guess part of the problem is that because of the hole between two levels there isn't much space, I guess that's why they don't jump up. They love to sleep on the lowest level and to catch toys through various holes in it, from the second level or from the side. Third level is pretty much useless for mine. Kittens would love it though.
