Usually when you think of a cat tree and you have experience with purchasing pet goods, then you should know that cat trees are usually over $50. This is mostly because a cat tree is a pretty big structure, much like how a kid’s playground structure is fairly expensive.
This leads to many pet owners not being able to afford a cat tree for their pets. This is unfortunate as having a cat tree gives your pet an experience your house can’t naturally give, due to the lack of trees.
However, there are some cat trees under $50 that you can get, and we’re sure you have seen them, but they are mostly cheap, broken goods that won’t last a long time. Thus, it isn’t recommended to go for cheap ones as you’ll eventually have to purchase another one.
What if, we can tell you that we have tested the best cat trees available in the market and have compiled a list of the best cat trees under $50 and reviewed them? This way, you can be be ensured that the tree you are buying from our recommendations are safe to use and will last a long time.
Without further adue, let’s get on with the review.
Top 3 Best Cat Tree Under $50
The reviews below are based off the experiences we had when we used them with our cats. If you want to read more about why cats love cat trees so much, then check out this article.
The first product we will be reviewing is the Go Pet Club tree. If you don’t want to read through our reviews and want to go with the best one, then this is the one we highly recommend. Its size dimensions are 19″W x 19″L x 51″ H and is under $50.
It is made out of faux fur and compressed wood which allows the tree to be structurally intact which will result in the tree being very stable. As some of the cheaper trees come with rotten wood, it might break or snap with a lot of use, which isn’t safe for your pet. The faux fur will give the sense of home for your pets which is essential for cat trees.
Overall, this tree is very easy to build together and is highly recommended for small cats. Comes at an affordable price, is made with quality in mind, and feels great.
Next up, we have a cat tree from AmazonBasics. This brand, made by Amazon, is known for creating goods that meet the average standards for its respective category while offering an affordable price. This allows consumers to be able to get whatever is average while not having to spend a lot of money. As the brand itself is Amazon, you can make sure that you’ll get the right treatment if something goes wrong with your order.
The size dimensions of this tree is 15.7″W x 15.7″L x 31.5″H which makes this tree around 20 inches shorter than the one above. However, it is a lot more affordable which makes up the price difference. One key thing about this tree is that it comes with 3 scratching posts. As cats love to scratch everything, giving them something to scratch will allow them to scratch something without you being angry that they scratched your furniture.
Overall, this tree is also quite easy to build as all you have to do is get a screw and screw all the pieces together. It looks quite nice in any room arrangement and is perfect for the simplistic, affordable lifestyle.
Lastly, we have the MidWest Cat Cube. Although it really isn’t a tree, but a cat cube/condo, we had to include it in this list to allow you to have a fresh look on other available “trees” on the market. You might’ve seen these around before but the great thing about these cubes is that it doesn’t take up too much space, and will also blend in well with modern house designs.
The size dimensions of this cube is 15.5″W x 15.5″ L x 16.5″ H which results in this condo being a cube. One unique difference between the two trees above and this cube is that this cube comes with extra toys on the side that your cats can play with to be entertained. As cats might get bored after sleeping and being home alone all day, something like a plush hanging ball can be a nice accessory to have.
Overall, this cube comes in a variety of colors allowing you to choose the one that will fit best with your house design and is priced even more affordably than the one from AmazonBasics. It feels great and looks good, so we highly recommend you take a look, even if you are concrete in the idea of getting a cat tree as you might change your mind if you research more into it.
