I just rescued 2 kittens after 25 years of not having indoor kitties! Within a day or two, they were already using our leather sofas and chairs as scratching posts so I quickly went to Chewy to find some type of replacement item I could offer to train them. SO...I bought a cat tower and this cardboard looking thing based on the reviews. It came with some loose catnip to I sprinkled the cat nip on the surface to help attract the kittens. Every time they went to the sofas/chairs to scratch, we just picked them up placed them on this item and within few days of keeping a close eye on them, they were using it on their own. In other words, training IS involved so don't think it will happen on it's own, but this is a great training tool. So worth the price!!!
My kitty Sam (male Siamese) obviously loves this scratcher pad. Sometimes he will give up his plush super luxurious comfy bed just to lay on this lol. I'd recommend you buy two. Don't want to make the kitty upset when you don't have a back up!
