I ordered this for my Big Boy earlier this year. We were so happy because finally got a scratching post that he loved to use and wouldn't fall over/collapse under his ethusiastic scratching. Unfortunatley, the "buy this again" feature didn't mention that what was in stock was a lot smaller than what I'd bought before, and insult to injury it cost two dollars more! I thought that they'd just shipped the wrong size and reached out to customer service. While waiting I looked at the reviews and was like oh no. The person who helped me offered to refund the difference in price, which I accepted as resolution since I didn't actually look at the specific product that I ordered. Very disappointed, but Chewys has always been good to us so it's ok. This will get donated to the animal shelter for their kitten room.
If your cat loves laying on and chewing cardboard this is a great purchase for them! Mine will lay on it and chew the upper corners. The only complaint is that the catnip goes EVERYWHERE. Be very careful if you're going to use the nip that comes with it to mind the mess. We have a catnip spray we prefer to use on it now to keep it fresh.
For those complaining it's not that big or it's not the same one. They are right. I've been buying this scratcher for years because it was JUST long enough for my cats. When I got it I thought it looked smaller so I put it next to the old one, and I'm glad I took a picture. They upped the price and made it smaller. Enough so a cat can't properly scratch on it. Do better, this is just not right.
My cats looked at this and said No Never. The shape and size are unappealing to cats.
We've rebought this lounger twice because our cat absolutely destroys it.
This scratcher is much smaller than I expected. I have two cats, and one of them doesn’t even go near it because he’s too big. Our other cat is smaller but she still can’t lay on it properly so she’ll just give it a scratch here and there
My kitten is still very little, but he is learning to climb on this. We haven’t used any catnip yet. Not sure just when we’ll introduce that.
Cats love this one. The shape seems to be just angled enough to get them to want to use it. If your cats like the cardboard scratchers this one will certainly be a hit. The way it's designed you can really just flip it upside down once they destroy the one side and start fresh with a new side. P.S. Don't count on the catnip packet being useful. It was too old for my cats to use.
Our cat Lucky loves it! Smaller than expected compared to others I’ve bought. Our cat is a large 25 lb cat that loves his scratchers. He uses it before I even added catnip.He rubs all over this one and loves the shape of it too! It’s perfect for him to scratch on & I’d buy it again. I use catnip spray for it once in awhile.
Smaller than what I expected!!! And the cat nip doesn’t stay in the cardboard goes right through it !! Not like the one I had before
