This is an all in one cat toy that prevents your cat from being bored. Due to the fact that all the pieces attach, you do not have to worry about getting cat toys and then losing them under the furniture.

It stands twenty inches high and is ideal for two cats.

You can assemble it and move it with ease.
- Large or Small Cats
It is designed for large cats or small kittens.
- Put it Anywhere

- Give Them a Gym
Cats are territorial, but companion creatures at the same time. This means that they want to be near those who are part of their family, something they determine based on scent. The scent of family, meaning the owner, is on furniture. For this reason, cats often destroy things like furniture in order to mark their territory. Their attempts to relate to you, to show territorial claims, and to be near you often end up costing you.
Rather than putting cats through the painful and traumatic declawing experience, setting up a special place for them to play is best. With cat trees or gyms, you give them something on which your scent can rest, something you can set up near you, but something they can tear up instead.
- Lots of Attachments
As per the manufacturer, if you set this up in your home, your cat will be entertained for hours. The reason being there are five different attractions on the unit, something which gives your cat options.
First, there is a plush mouse that appeals to all manner of hunting cats, but is infused with catnip. Second there is a fun plush bird also infused with cat nip. Third there are two multicolored feathers. Finally, there is a ball that has a bell attached to it. All five of these are attached to a stable platform just like a cat tower. Said platform gives cats things on which to scratch, pounce, and play. The materials are all high construction so the cats will not cause damage.
- Hide it When Not in Use
You can easily move this unit into or out of a storage space / closet. This means you can able to slide it away when company arrives, then bring it back out when you know your cat wants to play.
- Somewhat Small
It is rather small, which some people enjoy because of its easy storage. However, the shortness of the design and the complete lack of large, stacking beams or posts from which to jump make this a less than ideal choice for certain cat breeds. Bengals, or taller cats might not enjoy the lack of tiers, while smaller cats might thoroughly enjoy the exercise they get from reaching up to grab the pieces.
How it's Different from Competitors
This unit stands in contrast to other cat toys, primarily cat towers, because of the five attachments. What’s more, this unit is a brighter, more colorful option compared to traditional cat towers. Cat towers are often only made with various scratching posts, sleeping pads, and platforms on which to jump. With this design, your cats get extra toys and catnip.
Compared to other competing cat towers, this is one of the only units with the detachable, dangling toys. Other units might have higher ledges from which to jump, designed with three higher perches and lots of fleece lining. However, the larger ones meant for more than one cat with lots of space for scratching are much larger by comparison. In these cases the cat toy it becomes the focal piece of furniture in the room. With Kool Cat, this is not the case.
The Kool Cat Gym is a less expensive option for cat towers / gyms compared to others on the market. It is also a cheaper option compared to buying and then replacing lots of cat toys that invariably disappear under furniture.
When you invest in this play toy, you can save money compared to other products. Vesper, for example, is among the top scratching posts, with sleeping pads for naps, and a high design cat tower. Made with solid MDF construction, there are many color options to fit different houses, in addition to a memory foam sleeping pad. While it looks better than other cat trees or jungle gyms, it does not look better than Kool Cat. Additionally, it is nearly four times the cost of the Kool Cat. So you save money buying this option over the others.
The Kool Cat Gym offers a great way to keep your cats active and entertained. Instead of you having to keep them active, or play with them, or investing in another cat just to give them company, you can invest in this gym and be done with it.
Pawhut is a two stand unit that gives cats space to play, with six sisal rope posts for scratching located across the various levels. It is completely covered with faux fur to make it comfortable and soft. Boasting a unique set up, there is room for multiple cats to play at a good value. Downside here being that you need a great deal of open space in your home in order to use it, there is only one perch, and bigger cats might need a sturdier option.
- Go Pet Club
Go Pet Club has a unit twice the height of the Kool Cat one, which does not require as much floor space. It is better suited for medium sized cats. Easy to assemble, this unit comes with five scratching posts. However, if you fail to assemble it properly, it might wobble. What’s more, it is not suited for more than one cat.
- American Phoenix Cat Condo
America Phoenix Cat Condo is a smaller version that is ideal for kittens or small cats. This cat tow is housed on the ground level and offers a small play area. However it is compact and perfect as a starter gym area for your cats.
