Questions & Answers

18 Customer Questions

Is the 22” one large enough for a 12lb cat or will he knock it over?
Answer by ChewySep 08, 2020
The base is stable and made from engineered wood to support kitty playtime. A determined cat may be able to knock this post over.

How can I tell which size to get my cat? He's not overweight, but he is a solid 15lbs with a 16in chest if that helps.
Answer by ChewySep 09, 2020
The Frisco Cactus Cat Scratching Post is designed for cats of all sizes and lifestages. We recommend choosing the height that best fits your pet's scratching needs.

Is the circular base one solid piece, or does it come 'folded' with a seam down the middle?
Answer by ChewyAug 09, 2020
The baseboard is made of 2 separate pieces that will need to be attached during assembly.

Is the pole already wrapped with the rope or is that part of the assembly?
Answer by ChewyJun 02, 2020
The sisal rope is pre-attached to the post. Please refer to the photo below for complete assembly instructions:

Purrfect Alternative to Sofa

This scratching post was an immediate hit with Minnie who had nearly purrfected her sneak attack sofa scratch routine. Now she has a better outlet for her desire to scratch and can be heard scratching away early in the morning after her automatic feeder beckons her for breakfast. Thoroughly delighted with this cute post. It was super easy to assemble and required no introductions for Minnie who checked it out as I added the finishing touch: the top of the cute cactus. It is sturdy, well-made, and has a stable base so it doesn’t tip or wobble when she gives it her best sneak scratch attack.

Fantastic - unless your cat likes to stretch

I purchased the larger 31" size for my pair of 12-week-old kittens, and absolutely loved it... at first. They took to it immediately, and used it often. I'm not sure about larger cats, but for my kittens it seems sturdy, I've had both of them scratching on it simultaneously and it hasn't budged. The cactus design is very cute, without being too overly cartoonish or ugly, and I think the color is very nice, if you care about appearance along with function like I do. But my kittens are now almost 20 weeks, and even though they've still not reached their adult size, they've already outgrown this and have mostly stopped using it. They both want a good tall stretch with their scratching, and the sisal portion does not go up high enough for them anymore. At full stretch, their paws hit the upper soft/squishy part, and that isn't satisfying at all for them. I like it so much in every other way, that if Frisco ever considered designing a 3rd, taller size, or maybe re-designed the top portion, I would buy it immediately!

Short scratcher on a tall cactus

This is a really creative way to welcome cat furniture into human living space. It is a novelty that my guests all comment on. I think the price and the size are really great too. The only reason I knock off a star is because the scratching sisal rope does not extend higher up on the cactus so the cats do not get much extension scratching this post. It is a short scratcher but tall cactus. It is a toss up whether I bought this for the cats or myself. If this were the primary scratching post in a home it would not be very good for the adult cats who would stretch better on a taller scratching post. In our home we have other tall ones so we welcome this creative novelty scratcher.

if you’re on the fence - do it!

I have purchased several of these scratching posts over the past two years as my cats and fosters have completely destroyed them with constant use, and I will happily continue to purchase more because it means they aren’t destroying furniture! Every cat and kitten I’ve had has been OBSESSED with this scratching post - my older cats prefer the larger size (which has held up a little better), and my foster kittens like the small one. I love the size of the small ones - still big enough for any of the cats to use, but so easy to move around and put in accessible but still out of the way places.

I have 3 cats. The smallest is a Burmese who weighs in at 7 pounds. The largest is a Turkish Van who weighs in at almost 20 pounds (he is over 36" long), and one Tort in the middle. All of them love this scratcher. It is well made, and none of them has been able to tip it over. I am getting another one because they have shredded all the sisal rope on their current one. This scratcher has lasted a very long time, especially since 3 cats attack it daily.

Cute scratching post!

This scratching post was very easy to assemble. The base is nice and heavy, and overall the scratcher feels sturdy. This pic shows one of my 6 month old kittens scratching it (she was stoked to use it right out of the box haha), and this is the large size. As you can see she's easily able to scratch at the top of the post (the top part of the cactus is soft and plush, not where a cat would likely scratch) - so I'd definitely recommend just getting the larger size. Overall very pleased with it and would definitely recommend!

Disappointing= Might be good for others

I bought this to save my couch from my demon cats. However they ignore it. So it makes a cute item of decor if you like southwest. It tends to tip if a heavier cat gives it a try. I bought the shorter cactus but think the taller model is best for a medium to large puss.

Cactus cat tree

Good, cheap little cat tree! I love how cute this is. I bought it for my second cat to use while he was quarantined from my other cat before integration, so that he would have something to scratch on in his little space. Well, my cat is a chunky boy and he tended to tip this cactus over but quickly learned how to position himself so he could scratch without pulling the tower to the ground. He loves to wrap himself around the base and bat at the hanging ball too. A really wonderful and affordable choice for a small cat tree, great for 1 cat and/or small spaces.

Cat Approved!

My cat definitely approves of it! It’s very sturdy (because it’s heavy af). it’s a good size. and it’s a cute cactus - i am a plant lady. i have a ton of tropical houseplants, succulents and cacti. actually, 2 toothpick cacti named bonnie and clyde, as well as another named cactalie pointman (see what i did there? ya know, like …natalie.. portman.. but cactus.. and points… cause of the.. yeah). anyway. the top being soft is a nice touch (is that a pun?). and it appears to be well-made. would totally recommend! 10/10. i’ve only had it like, 18 hours, so if anything breaks or something, i’ll be back to update!

Cute design and helpful

I have had this post for a year? It was great as the cats grew, but I found I have very large, long cats. They still use it every day for their first stretch and clawing while I brush them with the great "Bumble Bee" brush I got from Chewy. I have to hold the post with one hand while I brush them with my other hand. For my cats I would need an base either screwed to the floor, or about 3 inches wider all around and the rope part should be 4 inches higher so they could stretch better. For an average cat This is a great product.
