I think I was first exposed to the Hagen Vesper V-line cat furniture through a PR rep for Hagen. I don’t really recall – but it was soon spread in the cat blogging world as Hagen’s new thing. A reader wanted us to review it and I wanted to review it as well.
Currently, there are seven different pieces in their cat furniture line:
- V - Base
- V - Double
- V - High Base
- V - Tower
- V - Lounge
- V - High Lounge
- V - Cube
Based on it’s appearance, I requested to review the V - Tower.
The Vesper V-Tower is multi-level, it includes two cubes and one tunnel for playing or resting. The cubes and tunnel have soft memory foam cushions that you can put inside for your kitty to lounge on. Those are also nice because you can pull them out and wash them separately. It comes in two different colors – walnut (we have walnut) or black.
The Vesper V-Tower is very sturdy and also heavy when put together. While I could scoot it on the floor, I would not be able to pick it up by myself. It has removable scratching surfaces that have Velcro® strips to hold them down until you are ready to replace them. I show how this works in our Vesper V-Tower review video below.
It is made of MDF made from New Zealand pine and has a water based lacquer. There’s a wood-finished laminate with scratch-resistant surface and has an overall pleasant feel.
Ours, specifically, got damaged in the shipping process. Since we received one of the first shipments of this cool cat tree, it is possible that they will make improvements to the packaging, so that it doesn’t happen to other ones. It could have also been the delivery drivers that handled this one. You can see in our review video how it was damaged – from the photos, you don’t know it is.
It also comes with a string and ratan ball toy that hangs off of it. As I state in the final review video, if I were to buy this modern cat tree, I would not install that feature. I don’t find it necessary and as you can see, two balls are missing from ours already – I don’t know where they are.
Buy the Vesper V-Tower
The suggested retail price of $154.99. The Vesper line is available at PetCo Unleashed and you can also buy the Vesper cat furniture line on Amazon.
The Vesper V-Tower Base measures 22.6 x 22.6 in or 65 x 65 cm and it’s height is 47.9 in or 117.5 cm.

We asked Hagen to make a product donation to the non-for-profit organization, Kitty City NM, in exchange for the review of their V-Tower. We received the V-Tower for review from the PR company that represents the manufacturer. Receiving the free product nor their donation to Kitty City NM did not influence this post.
