I figure I should have looked at the dimensions instead of just the price; I’ve bought other brands for maybe ten dollars more and they are HUGE and heavy! I figured, for an almost 45$ scratcher, that it would be at least a little on par with the rest- it is not. Besides it being small as all get out, there is next to no weight to it. My kitty went to scratch on it and almost flung himself around because it pulled out from under his paws. The cardboard collapses under the press of a finger and it came very clearly impacted (flattened) on both ends. I’m pretty disappointed that I paid 42$ for a scratcher that is clearly only worth 20$ at most. Thankfully Smiley doesn’t really discriminate his cardboard scratchers and seems to like it regardless, he just can’t lounge on it. Not sure how long it will hold up.
I have the older ones like this. This one is a quarter of the size. Well that’s one disappointment. Then she scratched on it and all the cardboard is all over my dining room. The old ones are a couple years old and they are still ticking. A bit disappointing I would say
I have the older ones that have lasted for years! They are larger and cost $12-15! This price of $42 is a ripoff……
This is great quality. My cats scratch on it as much as they sleep on it. I will be buying them another one when this first one wears out.
I didn't realize how small it was and it came with a small hole on the side already. It gets points because it's cute.
I have 2 cats and this scratcher is their absolute favorite! I've purchased less expensive ones hoping to save money, but in the long run have spent more $$ trying to find one they'll like and use as much as this one. It's more stable and holds up better than others I've purchased. To extend its life I'll rotate it, flip it over and even take a vacuum to it. I can make it last about 6 months before it starts looking like a bombed out building. I'll keep buying this scratcher because all things considered, it's the best value for us.
My kitty boys were using this scratcher within an hour of coming home from the rescue. They scratch, they play, they hide toys, they snooze on it. And it's sturdy: stands up to vigorous scratching.
We had this only about a week and it looks like we've had it for months. It isn't holding up. The cheaper ones we bought previously hold up better than this one. Definitely not worth the money.
My boys love these and the x shaped ones, but these hold up better. Disappointed in price and smaller size
My cat loves this. She uses it to scratch and also loves to just lie on it. Best part is it can be turned over once she wears out the top side scratching, giving twice the wear.
