I've bought a few of these now; they last for years, don't leave behind the mess that cardboard scratchers often do, and all four cats I've given them to have loved them. I haven't tried hanging them, so I can't speak to that, but on the floor the feet work well to keep them from sliding around, even in the face of a running jump! The only slight negative is that they collect a lot of fur, but it vacuums clean pretty well.
I have two 18yo brothers, fosters, and they were accustomed to a corrugated cardboard scratching pad and I was afraid to change anything in their lives, but the little bits of cardboard were all over the house. I tried the new Scratcher and low and behold, it worked! I recommend this pad to anyone in my position. Mazel tov!
I purchased this based on the overwhelming comments about how much other people's cats loved this scratcher. I'll say it's very well made, but even with cat nip sprinkled on it, both of my cats turn their noses up at it and go to the cardboard scratchers I was trying to replace with something less messy. Bummer!
I have always bought my cats the cardboard scratchers but they make such a mess I decided to look for something different. My big cat loves this scratcher. He even sleeps on it just like the old cardboard one and doesn't like to share with his sister. Excellent!
The most important thing is, she uses it instead of the furniture! She seems to really like it, and it is a nice size.
My cat Mac loves this and uses many times throughout the day. Easy to mount on, great quality and the perfect place for Mac to get satisfaction. This is my second purchase and so happy. The first purchase lasted 2 years.
My cats really like the cardboard scratchers but they are super messy. I tried one of these and the kitties like them, so I I have replaced all the cardboard scratcher with these and it is so much less messy. I did sprinkle with cat nip before I put them out. There was not cat nip in the package. One come damaged and the chewy people replaced it. I lay them on the floor as horizontal scratchers.
My chonky kitty Olive really loves this flat heavy wooden sisal scratcher, as do my 4 others too (they also like the tall post or cardboard waves, but she's the picky one). None of mine like it hung on the wall (they prefer The Ultimate 32" Sisal Cat Scratching Post, also by SmartCat, for a tall stand-up version.) This is very durable & you can spritz with some catnip spray to really get them going crazy.
Kitty loves it. It doesn't shred and shed like cardboard. No mess!!
The purchase of this scratcher came after months of research to replace a cardboard scratch pad that my cat was very attached to. The replacement had to be close in style and attractive to her so she'd use it. This one hit those checkmarks as well it's heavy enough not to move when she's digging/ scratching and it's made of quality materials and it's made to handle use. The best place for my cat's age was to lie it on the floor for easy access. I highly recommend this scratcher, it was well worth the money, I finally have peace of mind that this very important part of her daily routine makes her happy.
