We have two crazy-energetic kittens and one energetic 10 pound cat. The kittens weigh about 7 lbs, now. All three get on it at the same time - jump, hang, climb, scratch and sleep - the kittens play while their Mom sleeps. So their play doesn't bother her. She also plays with the kittens on the tree. It is quite sturdy. The combined weight of our cats is about 25 pounds. At times the weight is concentrated in one area - other times its distributed. My personal opinion is that, if your cat is grown, this tree will be a lot of fun since he is so active. And he'll enjoy it for years. We tied some toys to the ladder to give them more to do. They play hard with one another, so the unit catches a work out. The hammock is where our male kitten enjoys sleeping - he also jumps onto it from the top surface and has fallen on it from higher on the tree. The 10 lb cat has walked across it. I saw some reviews saying the hammock didn't hold up - but it's stapled. If it comes loose, it's an easy fix. However, the integrity of the entire tree is still in tact. We've had the tree five months.
