I opened these and thought they were so cute! They were actually cheaper than the ones without frames which is why I thought I'd try them. I set them up, one for each cat and sprinkled the cat nip over. They were very interested in the cat nip. But no scratching. After half a day I began to realize that they weren't scratching on the boxes because their last flat scratchers on the floor didn't have frames around them, let alone cute little yellow tassles. I removed the frames and tassles and boom! They started scratching and have been ever since. Cats are so picky.
Meh, my kitten is uninterested

I bought this because the foster home that had my kitten before I got her, had one in their house for the cats/kittens. There are many brands that make this type of cardboard scratching product for cats. I chose this one because I like the decorative exterior with little fringes and play toy. It also came with a bit of catnip. When it arrived, I sprinkled some catnip in it and put it down for the cat to play with, but she Has been uninterested in scratching it. I’ve moved it around, showed her how to use it, even tried angling it 45°. It’s been here two weeks and she has never used it as a scratching device.

Got this for newly adopted kitten. I am pleased so far that she is not trying to eat the yarn tassels that come on the four corners of the box. She had ignored this scratcher for days and suddenly discovered it this AM. From experience with another kitten 11 years ago, am sure this will be used a lot along with the cat trees and other scratchers. My rugs should be safe. :-)
Misleading product info / Made in China
on Jun 21, 2020
The scratcher is average size. We expected it to be larger. There is no information on the outside wrapper of where the item is produced. That normally indicates made in USA. Once you open it there is a small area on the back side of the wrapper that says made in China. The toy is also made in China. The catnip says it is grown in USA but no information about where it is processed, packed etc...
My cat is obsessed

The photos speak for themselves. The first night she went bonkers over this... scratched on it, pounced on it. Even when she’s not playing or going psycho, she enjoys just laying on it and taking naps and just reminding everyone that it’s HERS. For something so simple I don’t get what the big deal is - but the reviews are correct!

The tassels did not interest any of my three cats. The toy that is supposed to stick to it, I am guessing, really doesn't. Big disappointment is they have not had it long and already pretty messed up. The last one from another company held up much better
my cat is in love with this box

I have had it for a couple days now. She scratches it, she plays on it and she literally sleeps with it. If she is not sleeping on it she is sleeping beside it. She is absolutely in love with this box!!! She does not even look at her cat tower now.

Hello! My name is Grace. I am dictating this review to my human. I am 15 and very particular. My human has purchased a lot of scratchers for me, but I have always preferred the carpet. Finally she found one that I really like. I really do like a horizontal surface. I use it every day and sometimes even nap on it. (I like the scent of catnip.) I have instructed my human to order another.
Kitty LOVES this

My girl has several scratching posts but i thought she might like a horizontal scratcher as well. As soon as I put this on the floor she jumped on it & knew exactly what to do. She uses this every day and likes to play with the side tassles too. Usually my girl is cautious of everything new, but she took to this immediately.
My kitty loves this!

She was drawn to our dining room chairs and I tried other diversions, but the minute I put this cat scratcher on the floor (with catnip sprinkled on top), she didn’t show any interest in the chairs.
