Baobab: Modern Cat Tower


20 off sale product pages
This tall modern cat tower is named after the massive Baobab trees native to Australia and Africa. This 5′ cat tree isn’t as tall as real-life Baobab trees, but it’s the perfect height for cats of all ages and sizes.

Finally, a cat tower you can feel good about putting in the living room! The sleek and modern design blends in with modern décor. Plus, it can be customized by color and material. Sure to be your cat’s new favorite home within your home, this cat tree with scratcher has four branches for sitting, sleeping, spying, and scratching.

Our MOHAIR (faux) inserts are whiskery like a wire-haired terrier. Highly durable (our most scratch-able), doesn’t show dirt, and is easy to clean. Made from mostly nylon and 36% Post-Industrial (recycled content derived from industry scraps).

Our PLUSH inserts are rich and luxurious colors in plush softness. Up to 43% post-industrial recycled content and made of cut pile construction and nylon. Almost 1/2″ thick for those cats with extra long nails.

Baobab Modern Cat Tower Assembly Instructions

Necessary tools:

  • Philips screw-driver (preferably with a #2 head, powered, and used at a low speed)
  • Small ladder

How to assemble:

  1. Place base B on floor with the grooved plus sign facing up.
  2. Place bottom of D into B, where orange dots line up.
  3. Remove spacer blocks from fork opening of C and D (SDF only), then carefully (laminate may chip) slide “fork opening” of C into “fork opening” of D, where the fluorescent yellow dots on C and B line up. (CD)
  4. Place grooved plus sign of A onto top of CD, where the fluorescent red dots line up.
  5. To ensure A is centered on CD, insert 1 of the provided nails into 1 of the holes of top A. Lightly tap A on the sides until the nail easily goes into the pre-drilled holes of CD. Repeat with remaining nail into an adjacent hole. Remove nails, then insert and fasten screws until flush with surface, being careful not to over screw (stripping the hole may occur—if this happens, put half a wood toothpick into hole.) (CDA)
  6. Remove or lift-up CDA from B and turn upside down onto a rug, carpet, or towel.
  7. Place the grooved plus sign of B on top of CDA bottom, where fluorescent dots line up. Repeat step 5. (CDAB)
  8. Flip CDAB so A is back on top.
  9. Carefully slide shelves into slots by matching/lining up the color dots and then fasten with screws.
  10. To ensure insert is secure with Velcro, press and slide with finger around the insert edges. For easy removal of insert, use pliers and pull up gently at a corner.

That’s it, we hope you and your cats enjoy the Baobab modern cat tower for many years to come.

    Purrfect Modern Cat Design
    LOVE this company and their products. I have bought multiple Baobabs for different rooms
    in our house for our two cats. Sleek modern, eco friendly design with a touch of colorful
    carpet that the cats enjoy sitting and napping on. These cat trees are purrfect in front of a
    window or near a higher ledge the cats want to jump to. They remind me of spiral staircases.
    Easy to put together and keep clean. Very sturdy. Most importantly is the excellent customer
    service. This is one of my most favorite cat trees and used daily by our cats.

    Our Cats Love This, Our Interior Designer Loves It More
    We’ve had our Baobab Cat Tree for almost a year, and it continues to be the most contested
    spot in the house for our two Siberian kittens. Our cats are big guys, 14 lbs and growing, and
    this cat tree manages to stay stable as they fight for the top perch. When we first got our cats,
    I was worried that I’d end up with a carpeted monstrosity in the middle of our living room.
    Fortunately, this particular cat tree looks sleek next to our modern furniture while being
    durable and well loved by our cats.

    Best cat stand
    I love our baobab cat stand. The best part is that our cats love it too. The style is perfect and
    the cats love to lounge and sit on all levels.

  4. Roxy

    Fleas b-gone
    I was at my wits end with a flea infestation, and removed all carpet from my little 2 room
    apartment. Sadly, that meant dumping the carpet-covered cat tree. When I found this tree, I
    was ecstatic. The carpet pieces are removable for washing, which I do frequently. And it’s
    beautiful to boot. I’ve had it about a year and it still looks great. My cat, Missy, likes to run
    from one end of the apartment to the top of the tree at breakneck speed, and there’s barely a
    wobble. Also, the tree was very easy to assemble; for me that’s saying a lot. Buy one and you
    won’t regret the investment.

    Perfect – Durable & Stylish
    As a shelter, we often cannot use cat trees because they are covered by products that we
    cannot sanitize between cats. The high quality bamboo construction holds up to the cleaning
    necessary in a shelter environment and the carpet squares have lasted for almost two years
    now…and that is with being subjected to the washing machine between residents. We searched
    high and low for a cat tree that would fit our needs – the cats at our shelter thank the designers
    at Square Cat Habitat for this perfect cat tree.

    Best Cat Tree Ever!
    I purchased this tree for my two cats (ages 1 and 5) after having to get rid of a traditional,
    carpet covered tree when my kitten started pulling out and eating the fibers at the carpet
    edges. I’m so happy I did because it’s the best cat tree I’ve ever seen! I purchased it in the
    white laminated SDF with plush inserts and it looks great! It was easy to assemble, it’s easy to
    wipe down and keep clean, and it’s very sturdy. Whereas a regular cat tree would be looking
    ratty after a year of wear and tear, this one looks brand new. I love the height of the tower–
    slightly above me so the cats feel I’m in my rightful place and they can get a good look
    outside our window, and I love the spacing of the steps– my kitten can run up and down them
    like a maniac, but they’re easy for my middle aged cat to go up and down. Lots of steps means
    both of them can be on it without too much arguing. I’d recommend this tree to anyone, it’s

    I love and (more importantly) they love our Baobab cat tree
    I’ve been wanting to write a review for a while now… The day the tree was built, Leo and
    Penelope immediately started exploring. Penelope has since claimed the top perch as her own
    and sits up there every day, looking out the window or overseeing our living room activities
    from above. Poor Leo isn’t allowed up during those times and maybe we will have to get him
    his own Square Cat furniture… Pros: clean lines and modern look, blends very well into our
    home (tall white walls and big windows), very sturdy even when a cat runs towards and up it,
    easy to clean (wipe with a cloth) and vacuum the scratch pads, doesn’t accumulate dust and
    cat fur like those carpeted ones. Cons: none. 🙂 Absolutely worth the cost! We love our tree
    and really appreciate that someone is applying true style to every day things like our cat’s
    furniture. Thank you!

    our cats love this
    Easy to assemble , cats started to use it the next day. We’ve had it several years, looks as new.

    Cozy Cats
    I purchased my first cat tree in 2012 for Tortie Peanut. In 2015 I rescued Tabby cat Cashew
    and bought him his own Baobab tree. They love their trees and I love that they blend in with
    my furniture.

  10. Karen

    wonderful product
    My cat LOVES this tree. It is beautiful and simple. Sturdy. Modern. I bought the mohair
    inserts and Smokey goes after it with his claws and it has held up just fine. I like the ability to
    remove the inserts to clean on occasion. Those in my family who are craftsman always
    examine and admire it. So glad to have found this item.

    Cats and humans love it
    This cat tree purchase (it was a splurge!) was as much for us as it is for the cats. The Baobab
    has a prominent space in our living room, and we wanted a design that we wanted to look at
    AND that the cats love.
    Our two cats took to this immediately and use it daily. It’s very sturdy and exceptionally well-made.
    It was also VERY easy to put together, though I recommend a second person to have
    around to help hold the larger pieces when you are attaching them.
    Square Cat Habitat offers excellent customer service. We wanted to see samples of base
    materials, and they arranged this for us (only had to pay a small shipping charge). Also, they
    were accommodating when we purchased the Baobab–we wanted them to wait a week over
    the holidays to ship the cat tree, and they were very responsive and helpful.
    Highly recommend!

    Me and My Cats Approve
    Love this bamboo tree, I’ve had it for 2 yrs now and it looks as good as new. Just recently
    added the Acacia tree for my growing furry family. Would love to see a variety of floor
    products from SCH in bamboo. Great product and wonderful customer service!

  13. Sharon

    Very cool and durable
    We had one of the bamboo trees donated to our rescue 6 years ago! It has survived numerous
    cats and kittens over the years. Recently it was given to one of our volunteers when all new
    furniture was donated. It was pretty scratched up when it went to it’s new home, but I
    understand it has been restored to practically new. And it still has it’s original scratching pads!

  14. Donna

    Happy gymnast kittens!
    Square Cat Habitat makes the best quality and most beautiful cat furniture!! This is our
    second cat tree from SCH. We have multiple Scratchers too. The mohair carpet squares stand
    up to daily scratching, clean up easily with a good swipe of a cat brush and can be washed.
    Very classy. Our 8 month old kittens Maxwell Edison and Nico LOVE the tree and climbed
    on it while we were assembling it. Our adult cat Lucia — who didn’t sit on the first SCH tree
    we had for a whole year — is still eyeing the stunning 5 foot wonder. Except for the kitten
    inspectors, assembly was a breeze. Customer service is top notch too.

  15. Michaela

    Worth the Price
    I hesitated for a couple of weeks before purchasing this product, due to the price, I can now
    say without hesitation BUY it. It’s worth every penny. The tree is well made and easy to put
    together. My 2 kittens (5 months old) couldn’t wait for me to unpack it all, and went into the
    box and started scratching on the inserts. After it was assembled the immediately started
    climbing all over it and began playing with their hanging toy. Not a day goes by were the
    kittens are not on the tree. Best cat purchase ever!

  16. Sheri

    high quality product & cats LOVE it
    Easy to assemble, solid/sturdy, and clean-looking. Our decor is more “lodge” style and I was
    worried this would look too “modern” but it really fits in nicely. We placed it in front of a
    large bay window and both cats are happy using every perch level throughout the day. The
    carpet patches get used heavily but aren’t fraying or breaking down. The weight is distributed
    such that the center of gravity is low enough to keep it from being “tippy” without requiring a
    massive base. A+ rating for cats & humans!
