First, my cat loves this post. I love the post because the cardboard, rather than carpet, has allowed him to learn that scratching carpet, and furniture is discouraged, while scratching cardboard is welcome. This is the ONLY, full cardboard TOWER I can find anywhere. I have been buying it for 2 years now. I have a strong feeling the item has been discontinued and chewy is selling whats left of stock, though I hope I am wrong...as i cannot find this anywhere legitimate anymore. (There are bogus websites that show this in stock for cheap, but don't believe it.) The price is the bad point, for what it is, it's way overpriced, but I'm stuck, what can we do, you know?
Bestcar scratcher ever! My 2 cats would only use this one. I have bought many. While a refill would be nice, it is truly worth it for me to keep buying these. Please never ever discontinue them.
My cat loves this scratcher, but when I started buying it a couple years ago it was $14, then it went up to $20. At $30+ it's not seeming worth it, especially because my car doesn't wear out/scratch the base - only the pole. I understand that supply chain issues have made paper a lot more expensive, but I wish they sold the pole separately at a refile so that I could keep getting this product for my cats.
I have 16 cats that love cardboard scratchers more than anything. They love it so much. Will probably buy another one once it's spent. I wish they sold replacements for the post because it's definitely going faster than the base.
This is the only tower my cat will use! Pricey, but worth it. Lasts about a month with daily use, not bad for a cardboard scratcher.
My kittens love this scratcher. They only like cardboard scratchers. However it is a little bit wobbly, but it's not screwed in so that is to be expected. Easy set up.
My three cats are ridiculous. They won't scratch fancier, nicer scratchers made of rope, carpet, or any other material, no matter how much catnip we put on them. They'll only use cardboard scratchers. They also won't use the ones that hang on the wall (maybe because they used to scratch the ACTUAL walls and we've finally taught them not to). They had a little kitten-sized cardboard stand-up scratcher as kittens, but even if it hadn't been utterly destroyed by now, it would still be too small for them. I found this and while it could definitely be bigger/taller (one of our cats is almost 20 pounds, over two feet long, bigger than several dogs I've had, and the vet says he's at a perfect weight, just an enormous cat), it's the best upright cardboard scratcher I've found yet and they're already gleefully tearing it apart. I'll definitely buy it again.
When Angus’ catch scratcher got worked over good, he wasn’t happy. I purchased a carpeted one online and would not touch it. I found the cardboard one with chewy. Now he’s a very happy boy with one in every room.
My boy cat loves to claw vertically, while my girl, loves to claw horizontally and this pillar keeps them both happy. My boy was all over it before I even got it out of the box, so the infused catnip works. It goes together in seconds and his clawing doesn't tip it over. She constantly claws the flat bottom platform and loves to sleep next to it using it as a pillow. It's better used on carpet, as if it's on a non-carpeted floor, it will slide.
This is super flimsy and light. My kitties are medium to large and, even if they could sit on the small base, the post wiggles excessively. Maybe it would be good for a kitten.
