Four Paws Super Catnip 21" Tall Carpet & Sisal Scratching Post
If you had four paws and liked to purr you'd agree there's not many things better than a sisal and carpet scratching post… unless it's a sisal and carpet scratching post with a catnip-filled ball on a string! The Four Paws Super Catnip 21" Tall Carpet & Sisal Scratching Post gives cats their two favorite surfaces to scratch and has a tethered plush ball infused with catnip to keep cats entertained battin' and scratchin' all day long.
I would not buy this again. Screw in the bottom always comes loose which causes the post to be weak and wobble. The little ball hanging off did not last a day & if you do not have to the post in the corner against a wall it tips over when the cat scratches it. Put out the extra money for something put together better
Not sturdy, but cat loves it

My small cat loves this scratcher. I think a larger cat might tip it over. I've had the scratcher for 2 months and she's already destroyed 1/3 of the carpet on one side. The sisal part is holding up better. Since it's relatively inexpensive and compactly packaged, I don't mind if she goes through a few of them per year; it's cheaper than reupholstering the couch.
Cheaply made product!!

Was excited to get for my new kitten.. but sadly the scratching post part broke off of the base days after we set it up.. the catnip toy ball came off too!! They really need to consider stronger materials when constructing these. And by the way, my kitten is only like 3 months old maybe 3-5 pounds... it is really bad that this did not withstand him playing with it..
needs better catnip

My cat was not attracted to it because the he nor me could smell the catnip on it! However, it seems most scratching posts and pads are that way today! They do not put the real or original cat nip on them. So it did not attract my cat! It was very easy to put together though.
Great, until it immediately fell apart

This was a very nice scratching post when I put it together. Good height, toy on top, very enticing. The ball was immediately ripped off, and about a month later the post is almost ready to be trashed. It is extremely unstable and frayed. I have bought posts for less money than this that held up for years. I would have ordered a second one if it had't fallen apart right away!
Still waiting for our hyper kitten to discover this

To be determined. We assembled and put the post down in his lane of travel from the living room to his bedroom. He is only three months old - super energetic and kitten-crazy and has started to scratch furniture but has yet to show interest in his new scratching post. We think he just hasn't stopped long enough to discover it. Ask me again in a bit and I'm pretty sure we will have a positive result!!! Post has good construction and is super easy to put together.
works wonders, but!!!

our cat has not taken to any scratchers, condo's that we have bought - this scratcher arrives, and anticipating the usual 2 seconds of attention and then forget about it - HE LOVES IT - loves the both materials of sisal and rug - loves playing with the attached ball. great. But, the item is so poorly made, after 1 week of use-- it is falling apart where the rug meets the sisal. so, if you don't mind spending some money every other week to replace the wonderful scratcher, so be it. Or, why not make a better quality item and charge appropriately for it.
Buy with caution

First word of warning: this tower is not tall enough for an adult cat. I, however, bought it for my 12-week-old foster kittens, who adore it. As soon as I got it out of the box and before I even put it together, they were all over it. They use it every day. Second word of warning: you get what you pay for. This tower is not as durable as a nicer, more expensive scratching post. My foster kittens ripped the ball off the top within an hour, and the carpeting is now unraveling after only a couple weeks' of use. But I am still happy with the product. It is quite stable and, like I said, the kittens love it, so I'm not sorry I bought it.

The fur ball and fur top shed very easily and is not good for active cats who like to scratch and chew. The carpet portion of the post is not stapled well so the cats pull on the loose seam causing the carpet to unravel. Overall I would say this was a poorly manufactured post and I would not recommend it.
My cat loves it!

Easy to put together. Great to take traveling. And my cat started scratching and playing with it immediately.
