I purchased this scratching post for Noah's birthday as he needed a new post. The post is well made and better looking in person. Noah and his brother Jake watched my husband put it together and were very interested. Neither one after it was placed where the old post was went near it. I waited a few days and then decided to use a cat nip spray on and when that didn't work rubbed actual catnip on. Still no luck and can't understand as they scratch a giant sisal mouse that hangs on our door. I called Chewy for advice and they said I did all the suggestions they would advise. Chewy issued me a credit and will donate to a no kill cat shelter.
We have one former feral inside and four ferals that visit and during storms or on whims stay inside for a stretch. EVERY cat loves this scratcher. Tall enough for them to stretch, and for two of them a favorite pedestal to groom (a big cat cannot fit atop however), its sturdy, very simple to assemble, and has lasted about 2.5 years. Easy to keep clean. Just ordered another. Wish that the co. made replacement sisal for environmental reasons, but just about perfect.
Finally - a scratch tall enough for any cat to get in a natural scratching position and really stretch! How much they use it though depends on how much your cat enjoys sisal scratchers over cardboard, though. My cats' favorite part is that the scratcher is a perfect height to be a good jumping platform between furniture pieces to get to a window or another part of the room, and it's sturdy enough to take it!
This is the best scratcher we found online. The one we were replacing was very worn and finding a larger one proved difficult until we saw this deluxe scratching post on Chewy. It was exactly what we were looking for. Our cat loves it too! Another quality item among the many that we found at Chewy!
Olivia love's the one in my bedroom so much that I bought one for the family room. She love's sitting on it while she checks for where her (cat) brother. Oliver uses it as much as his other cat trees. He really likes sisal rope, while she prefers cardboard, for 'sharpening' her claws.
I liked this scratching post so much I bought a second one. I have 3 cats that use these - two of the cats are 8-10 lbs and my boy is about 15 lbs. It's very stable. I had a smaller one that they could easily knock over. This one is XL and has a larger, but soft/carpeted base. It's almost 3 ft high so it's nice that they can stretch out on it without knocking it over. The sisal is great for scratching and the carpeted parts are very soft. Even my big cat can jump on the top and sit. My only complaint is that the flat head of the metal screw on the top isn't covered by the carpet. It's flush and smooth so doesn't seem to bother the cats though. I recommend it!
Finally a cat scratcher that can hold up to my destructive furry boys. It was easy to put together myself, and my kitties started using it immediately. It’s sturdy and is a quality product. The delivery was quick, and was packaged well. I highly recommend it.
We bought one of these for the cats and they loved it, so we ended up getting another to keep in the other room. This scratching post is tall enough for them to get a good stretch while they scratch, which I think is why they don't go after the sofa. They also get tons of praise and treats when they use it. The female will run over to it and start using it if I ask her if she's a good girl. ;) I took one star off because one of the posts developed a wobble after about 6 months. (yes, checked the screws) They still use it but not as hard as the steady one. Sometimes I hold it steady while they use it if I'm passing by. Yes, they are spoiled.
I admit I was a little leary to buy one like this because the size of my cats. I was worried it wouldn't work for my big boy at 3 feet long 24 pounds. He actually jumped to the top and hung out. Even the new kitten likes scratching on it. I usually have my cat towers made because most you can find today wouldn't last a month with these 7 and are flimsy. I give this one a 5 plus star rating.
So far we love this car scratcher. It looks great in our home even though it is much bigger than we thought it would be. Our cat hasn't acknowledged it yet though so we are hoping she will learn to use it soon.
