Our Cat has been trained to use this scratcher and she loves it. I currently have three of them in different rooms of the house and she uses them ALL the time. Saves our carpets and also our furniture. I will be ordering another one so I can have one in each room for her to use. Very pleased with my purchase from Chewy!!
My fat cat starts every day with a vigorous workout on this scratcher. Makes me cringe when I realize how she treated my furniture with those claws. This is a longer scratcher and both cats prefer it to the shorter one or the slanted incline one. Really good purchase made a little late to save my couch!
This is my go-to scratcher for our cats. We have 7 and all of them usually turn to the corner of our mattresses or wooden chairs if we don't always have scratchers for them. We haven't been able to get them a cat tree and, while we do plan to get one soon, this has always been a great alternative. It comes with cat nip. Just sprinkle it under and even on top of the cardboard and let your cats get to work. The refills for these are affordable as well.
I bought this after a recommendation from my niece cat. My two cats love it. They scratch it as well as lie on it. I don't know if it is the catnip or the configuration of the cardboard, but this thing is a definite hit with my fur babies.
All our cats love these and have been using them. They do not make a mess and I love that the frame keeps it together nicely. I especially love that the scratch board inside the frame flips over so it has two sides that can both be used.
My cats love these cardboard scratchers. They can't get enough of it and sometimes an aggressive queue forms because they all want a turn. I usually only have one out at a time because my oldest cat while he also loves the scratchers after so long passes he decides to pee on it. And the scratcher lasts much longer if I can keep him from doing that. It lasts a pretty good amount of time especially if its the reversible ones. Highly recommend it. It may just be cardboard but its cardboard that makes my cats extra happy.
One of my sister's cats (my "great-niece") really likes these scratchers. She is not especially a catnip lover, but does love to rake her front nails on the scratcher, and does so multiple times per day. She also likes to sleep on it. (We refer to the scratcher as her "bed of nails," although there's nothing sharp or harmful about it. It's made of stiff cardboard, I think). I've been buying one of these scratchers for my feline "great-niece" every 10 months or so, for years, and will continue to do so. It's lightweight, not expensive, and seems to make her happy.
Scratching on furniture is Lazy Parenting. These wonderful scratch pads deal with their urge to sharpen their claws, and they don't bother my sofa! They like the narrower ones, of course, but these double-wides are GREAT for my larger cats (I've got 2 Maine Coons) and they destroy the smaller ones fast. These last longer, are easier for them to use, and I LOVE them!
The description states Double-Wide. It is about the size of a regular plus maybe a half. I have had the larger scratchers from Kong. They are double the size of a regular scratcher. For the price, I will order the Kong brand which is a true double wide.
I have a multi-cat house hold and many of the cats are special needs. I purchased this item because the cat scratcher I usually purchase was out of stock. I am very pleased with this scratcher and purchased six more for the cats! The scratcher is priced reasonable and holds up well in my multi-cat house hold!
