This looked like a cute design but unfortunately is is just super corrugated cardboard. The pretty celestial design peel off after a week or so. The cardboard can shed everywhere too. There are sturdier designs out there but okay for a start.
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.
