My cat scratched to pieces the top of the sisal on the second level of his cat tree, plus the fabric above it. So I went looking for something that would be taller for him so he could really stretch his full length. Not much floor space left, not a lot of wall space, but I do have a couple of outward wall corners. This cat scratcher is perfect because I could mount it at the height he needed and it doesn't require floor space like a tree would. So far he is really liking it. He gets a good stretch. I mounted it on a corner. So far it is just hung using the sticky pads with velcro on one side holding to the velcro on the back of the scratcher. I measured the spacing to place the pads very carefully so no repositioning was needed. My walls are thick plaster, not wall board, so that may make a difference to some other people's experience with how well the sticky pads hold.
I like this post for the most part. I especially like that there is a mountless option with command strips already installed on the back. The scratcher material could be better. It feels very plasticy rather than like actual rope. My cats still use it but not as much as others
The instructions say that you need to use a 5/16 drill bit to insert the wall anchors. After drilling a very large hole, I came to the conclusion that a 3/16 was a better size. At some point I will have quite a bit of work patching and repainting the laundry room wall.
Definitely needs to be screwed in…the sticky strips won’t cut it. It took my cat a week or two to realize why I had put it there, now she loves it. I put it near where I prep her food so she has something to channel her excitement into. I’m happy with it.
This is a whole lot better than my padded kitchen mat! I just opened it and laid it on the floor. He prefers the floor instead of the wall. It stays in place without any trouble. Highly recommend
One thing i hate about cat scatters is how ugly they can look, not with this one! It’s cute, it’s discrete, and it’s sturdy! I would suggest actually drilling into the walls though
