I have bought many different styles of cat scratchers over the years but this style is definitely one my cats love! Long enough for full grown cats and heavy enough to stay basically in place. Well worth the price because it is reversible. I have several cats that try to occupy them by using it as a cat nap spot. Good thing I bought two of these.
Our cat loves these - sleeps on them much of the time and loves tearing them up!! She also leaves our upholstered furniture alone with these handy scratchers!!
I seem to have lost the catnip that went with the scratcher...no worries the cats LOVE it!!! I have many different scratchers but my cats seem to gravitate to the corrugated cardboard ones. Many years ago I had a cat who loved to pee on the corrugated cardboard scratchers, so it has been some time since I have had them. None of my cats have that "habit" so we have several of this type!
My cat loves this scratcher. He not only uses it to scratch he likes to nap on it.
I really enjoyed the design of the scratcher, but there is no cardboard bottom to it at all, so it instantly makes a mess. You cannot put catnip directly on it because it just falls through. I was very disappointed with this and would not purchase again. My cat has not shown any interest as I have not been able to add catnip effectively.
My teenaged kitten went through this in two days. (She has other sisal/hemp scratching posts that have held up with no problem.) This product is not designed for actual wear by any cat I have known. The whole purpose is for them to SCRATCH -- but this thing goes to pieces when they do that.
I bought three different styles of scratchers. My adult cats don't use this style at all. They like the flat ones. Evidently they are more comfortable when using the flat ones, and they use them a lot. I donated the two of these I bought to a shelter. Perhaps the smaller cats or kittens will like it better.
One of my 11-year-old cats loves wave scratchers, and there was a particular kind I regularly bought for her in my local pet supply store. After moving to a new area, I ordered this one online thinking it would be the same, but it turned out to be a bit smaller and she hasn't shown much interest in it at all. She's 10 pounds, for reference. We love Chewy, but this item just wasn't right for us.
The scratcher, although of the wav y design that I wanted, is lighter weight and more open holes than the previous one that my cat loved. The catnip falls right through the larger holes and makes a mess. I would not buy that brand again. Must be why it was half price sale!
a cardboard scratcher is a must in my house. add the wave, and the cats will stay will stray away from the couch immediately. the only reason I only gave it four stars is the quality, the cats love the board, but it does not last that long. however a good deal for the price
