Bought both this and the gothic one as i was fed up of dealing with mites in my old wooden ones. Really easy to put together and easy to cleam out. Slightly less floor space in this one than the gothic but found it a bit easier to get into and also looks a bit easier on the eye. All in all very pleased and can see it still standing strong for a very long time. Also seem cheaper than most other plastic offerings i have seen. Highly recommend and will be going back for a couple more.
