Too unstable

Similar to the other review, it's a great idea, but poorly executed. My biggest complaint is its stability - each piece (referred to as short, medium and tall herein) is "secured" (used loosely) to the base by a SINGLE screw. The short one, because of its height, can get away with that, but the other 2 cannot. The medium post is top heavy and wobbly as soon as my cat brushes up against it, let alone jumps on it. The tall post is the worst - because the bottom consists of a cylinder the cat can go into, the single screw is much shorter, so that it doesn't poke up into the cat's space. The post on top of that is again, held in place by a single screw and is the least stable component of the whole furniture piece. I couldn't go to the trouble of returning it, so instead I pushed it into a corner, which minimizes the degree to which the medium and tall posts can wobble, but it's still unstable for my 15 lb cat. He uses it mostly for the scratching posts and as a means to get up to my dresser when I'm in the room. (Please note that I don't think the holes are big enough for him - he's not round, he's a tall cat, but they seem better sized for a kitten or small cat.)
I thought about trying to stabilize it, but I think that would require a drill and tools I do not have access to. I thought about super glue, but the fabric is thin and I'm not certain that would do much more than pull the fabric off the base. Please consider something else - it's not worth the money.

This tree is awesome in design overall, base needs to be wider to prevent wobbles. Color is beautiful! It will be returned due to the covering. It is a thin faux fur that my kitten cannot get his claws into for climbing. He seemed to really like it the first few days, but I noticed he couldn't climb and leap easily unless he was on the sisal part(poles). He therefore had to plan his moves instead of moving naturally and soon lost interest.
