The Lotus Cat Tower by The Refined Feline is our top-rated modern cat tree which makes it our obvious Top Pick for 2017. We have yet to come across another cat tree that can rival the Lotus Cat Tower in both quality and beauty. At nearly 6-feet tall, this cat tree towers above the competition! You have two choices for the veneer finish - mahogany and espresso, and they both look great. The carpet covered shelves are durable and they help prevent your cat from slipping. This cat tree also has a built in sisal scratching pad and a cushioned cubby. With all these awesome cat-friendly features and people-pleasing aesthetics, the Lotus Cat Tower will not disappoint!
The PetFusion Modern Cat Activity Tree and Scratching Post might not be the most modern cat tree on the market, but it is definitely deserving of a spot on our 2017 Top Picks list. This mid-height cat tree is made of furniture grade MDF and plush fabric. It even has a quality sisal fabric scratching post. And assembly is a piece of cake! But the best part of all is the amazing price. At $100, the PetFusion Modern Cat Activity Tree and Scratching Post is an unbeatable value.
The Apex Cat Tree by FrontPet might be one of the newer modern cat trees on the market, but it has definitely caught our attention. We are big fans of the extra large carpeted platforms that make this cat tree ideal for climbing and lounging. At 68" tall, the Apex Cat Tree is deserving of its name! This cat tree comes unfinished, so you can customize it to match the furniture in your home. Or you can leave it just the way it is. The FrontPet Apex Cat Tree gets a spot on our Top Picks list because it is a great-looking, highly functional cat tree.
