The one I have at home came with a top/platform (with red fabric) that I could adhere to the top of this post. My guys love this because they can sit up high and watch things. But I don't see that platform available anywhere. Please tell me it's available and I'm just not seeing it.

How much does this scratching post weigh? I have 8 cats, and 3 of them weigh at least 15 lbs, so I'd like to feel sure the post won't just tip over. Thx!
Answer by ChewyJun 02, 2021
This scratching post weighs approximately 16.0 pounds.

When my 5 cats wear out the sisal mat on the post, can the sisal mat slide out of the pole and flip over to use the bottom part? or is there a replacement sisal mat to order when they finish shredding this one?
Answer by ChewyJun 09, 2018
This scratching post is made as a solid unit. There are no replacement pieces available.

My 2 cats are on the bigger side and weigh 19 pounds each. Will this work for them?
Answer by ChewyJan 01, 2018
This Scratching Post is great for cats of all sizes. It features a sturdy 16 x 16 inch base that keeps the post from tipping and wobbling.

doesn’t tip & works well

I purchased 2 of these for a local cat rescue per their request. They use these to teach the cats to use them vs the rug or furniture. They’re pretty solid & they don’t tip over even with multiple cats using at the same time. I have one for my cats, but I’ve added a peel & stick carpet square cut to size stuck to the top as it’s just the painted wood and my babies like to sit on top of it. It gets a lot of use.

Cats love this Scratching Post...this is the 3rd one I've bought

I have been using these large scratching posts for years, my cats love them, and they are sturdy enough to stand up to my 16 lb. guy climbing up and sitting on top. I even turned the sisal upside down on the first one I bought to get a bit more life out of it. I have one upstairs, and one downstairs.

Scratching Post

The picture of this item appears to me as having oak wood on top and bottom, but it's really a heavy particle board and it looks cheap... I don't like that part, but I kept it because the kittens took to it right away and it seems to be heavy enough to hold the weight of my 2 MaineCoon kittens as they grow.

goodness, cannot say enough GREAT things about this sisal scratching post!!! i did research has to be tall enough for cats to 'stretch' and then claw. sisal keep their claws from getting caught in the post (regular carpet is the worst!) so so so sturdy!!! my cat RUNS to it and then grabs on, stretches, and commences to sharpen, lol! why did i wait so long to buy this??? get it and forget it! it's beautiful, too.

Not Worth More Than $20

For $70 they could’ve at least put some cushioning around it instead of leaving the sharp edges out. There were no instructions and the screws were pretty hard to screw in. Usually all my pet furniture comes with Allen wrench and this one did not. And at such a high price! They’re just overcharging at this point. Also the scratcher isn’t attached the post properly. Overall I’m very unhappy with the design, assembly and obviously price for product.

Very Nice!!

This is a really nice scratching post - sturdy and durable. I love that it comes in the gray as that looks more subtle with my current decor.

This Scratching Post is a Solution!

We had a problem with our cats using the wicker furniture on our balcony as their scratching post. We tried to repair the furniture, but I knew the carpet covered scratching post we put out on the balcony was wearing out, and not the number one choice for our cats' scratching. I found this tall sisal cat scratching post on Chewy. The cats love it because they can really stretch up and give it a good scratching workout. It is much more durable outside than the old carpeted post and more stable at standing up to the weight of our not very small cats. I have not seen my cats use the wicker furniture since they have discovered the new 32 inch sisal cat scratching post. I recommend this post to anyone who has larger cats and need an outside scratching post.

Larger than expected; cat likes it

Larger than expected (good thing). My cat has already started using it a bit and she usually takes a long time to warm up to new items. She's already tearing up the living room rug less now.

Hope he will use it

I can only rate this on It's appearance --- it looks well made, I've had this for about 4 days now and he hasn't used it yet; I've scratched on it with my nails hoping he will take the hint but he just stood and watched. I'm handicapped and don't drive anymore so I can't take him to the vet to have his nails trimmed and I thought this would help him, maybe it just takes a little time for him to get used to it being in the house; the next thing I thought I would try is laying down instead of having it standing up, I will give this a try in a few days.

Excellent Quality

Quick and easy to put together, stylish, and sturdy. Love that it's tall enough for my cat to get a good stretch when scratching at the top.
