Rated 2 out of 5 by Trudy Im Regretting this purchase!
The Post is too tall,wasn't expecting that! Didn't like carpet on bottom of post,top part made of sisal is very thin! It claims to have sturdy base, but it tipped over on my kitty every time he tried to use! I removed base and used an old base from a used up post and NOW it is sturdy! Too many things wrong with this post to recommend buying

My cats love it! Reasonably priced. My only complaint is the base seems a little small.The cats tip it over too easily! Other than that. seems to be a good value.

This product is not worth it, at any cost. Within a couple of days the ball got ripped off and the material around the post is shredding and coming off too. Now I do realize it is a scratching post but the way it is coming apart is beyond wear and tare of kitty use. In order to use it I have to recover it and secure the connections so it doesn't come apart. Doesn't happen too often but this one was bad news.

Great scratch post. Two different textures for our cat to use. He really likes it. Only issue we had was the ball fell off within the first few days & there was no way to reattach. So we just got another ball we had & tied it to string.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SnowCat It's an okay post
The bottom carpet part works for our cats, but the top portion is made of sisal and they are not interested in it. When they use just the bottom portion of the post, they do not get to stretch and scratch with full strength. This is not allowing to scratch with joy.

i will be sending this post back the ball fell off immediately. Sisal is coming off! For $2 more I bought a beautiful one at my local pet store. Thicker sisal and constucted so much nicer.

Product well made. Only thing is when cat claws the top, tends to lean and makes it difficult to continue to scratch.

Received product very promptly, my kitten is climbing all over it. I wish I would have thought to get a taller one. Otherwise great, as described .

It's not an expensive scratching post, it's tall and has a sisal scratching surface and a carpet surface. My cats have played with the ball and after having it for at least 3 weeks, the ball is still attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SCCat It's the only scratching post that my cat will use.
I LOVE this scratching post - because my cat loves it. It is the only scratching post that she will use. I have wasted a lot of money on other posts, but I finally realized that what she loves is the sisal part of it and she uses it all the time. I've already ordered another one for when she destroys this - a cheap price to pay to save my leather furniture!

Mediocre quality but worth the $$$.
The little pom-pom toy on the top literally lasted less than an hour (now its a free-ranging cat toy).
The scratching part is well enough made that it seems to be holding up.
Sprinkled with cat nip every few days this is quite popular with both my kitten and cat.
I don't think you'll be disappointed considering the price.
BTW, I don't fool myself into believing that I "own" any cats...they "own" me ;-)

The ball that's attached didn't last long, but I expected that. Both my cats (maya-3months and shadow-1.5years) love it and I think it has helped them learn to play together. The little one likes climbing to the top of it and sitting there to tease the older one :)

My cats love this. I have carpets now, but am having wood floors installed soon. I wanted to introduce them to new scratching posts, I only have one, they use the carpet a lot. I am going to see what else Chewy offers.

My cat is pretty picky about her toys and she seems to be liking it! And putting it together was super easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coop48 Great product
Item came with assembly required. No exaggeration when I say it took less then 2 minutes to put it together. My cat loves it, both the carpeted & sisal part. And the ball on elastic cord has kept him entertained. Bought this to keep him from pawing on my furniture, so the added bonus of playtoy was great!

My cats went right to this post that replaced an older, worn-out one that had been their favorite. They particularly lied the attached ball and shredded the cover over the ball that swings from the post. A quick vacuum and all was well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fatcattn Better than the price
This is a really good value scratching post for the money. Very sturdy and just tall enough. Like the carpeted base so it doesn't scratch the hardwood floors. Easy assembly. I bought one and put it at the corner of a chair that the cats were using as a scratching post. Now they go to it instead. I ordered more so that I can do the same for other furniture corners. I have the most destructive cats on the planet so the fuzzy ball at the top lasts for about 3 minutes, but makes a good, quiet loose toy.

After very simple assembly, our kitty started playing and scratching almost immediately. Very well constructed and a good size for our small home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Agnieszka very good for playful kitten
The post is great. My kitten loves to stretch on and scratch it. Catnip ball lasted only 2 minutes;) but I attached diffrent toy to string so it's still entertaining. Shifu also brings some other toys to bounce around the post.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cambrazoe2013 Love the carpet sisal combo!
Great scratch post!!!! Finally one that has a no shedding type of carpet! The height is great for the cats who like to stretch while scratching. Would highly recommend this one especially for the price!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by April22 Pretty good ...
My Missy loves this new toy. She likes to hang off it and look at me while scratchinig and playing. Really cute. It was easy to put together. The only problem I had with it was Missy pulled the catnip ball toy off that hangs from the post immediately. I had to sew it back on, and she was good to go. One other thing I did different was to put the large washer on the underside of the platform for the pole stability; this kept the platform from folding up.
