Questions & Answers

How does this attach to the post?
Answer by ChewyJul 22, 2017
The perch slides over the top of the scratching post and is held in place by two tabs which fold down.

Is this the pad only or the perch and pad?
Answer by ChewyFeb 28, 2023
This comes with the perch pad only. It is designed to fit the SmartCat The Ultimate 32-in Sisal Cat Scratching Post (sold separately).

I have a different scratching post that is a column instead of a rectangular box. Could the mat be adjusted to fit a circular top? Thanks
Answer by ChewyJun 05, 2018
The SmartCat The Ultimate Post Perch Pad cannot be adjusted.

Cat loves!

I had gotten a scratching post quite a while ago that had the perch included. My cats loved it. I recently found a similar scratching post and ordered it for the living room, but it didn’t have a perch. So when I saw this on Chewy, I ordered it right away. I fitted it on the scratching post and my cat took to it right away. It’s about the same height as the window sill so she loves to sit on it and look out the window, or just survey her territory. So glad I found this and got it for her!

Velcro Strap Broke

My cat really enjoyed this perch for the first few days, but one of the velcro straps that held the cushion onto the perch tore off when she jumped onto it.

He loves it!

Our cats already love the smartcat scratching post so when I saw this perch, I knew I had to get it. The perch was so easy to attach - just remove from the box and slide onto the top of the post. I wasn't sure if it would stay in place but we haven't had any problems with it moving. Our one cat just loves scratching the post and then climbing up and hoisting himself onto the perch to look out the window. I like that it's detachable so if we ever need to replace the post, we can simply move the perch onto a new base. Great purchase!

Nice addition

I have multiple cats and just got a kitten so I decided to add this to the scratching post. It does slide around, however, mine is backed up next to my sofa and it’s more secure than free standing. The size is nice. I would like options on colors.

Excellent pad!

I noticed that many people are saying that the pad should be included with the post. Mine was originally, so apparently that is an option. As to the replacement I just bought, I thought I was just buying the pad, not the whole shelf haha. My dog pulled the old pad off the shelf, and chewed up some of the velcro. Plus after 15 years or so, it had faded. So nice to have a fresh, clean, bright red pad. And an extra shelf, I guess l 0 I've never had any trouble with it not staying firmly attached, must say Picture is of the old one, but you get the idea

Cats love it

I’ve had this scratch post and perch for years and needed to replace the top pad. It came with the perch as a package. My cats use it constantly as a scratch post and love to be on the perch in front of a window. It’s big enough to curl up on and play with those below.

Kitty Loves It but Pad isn't Stable

My young, boisterous, inquisitive kitten loves this scratching post and perches on his pad most of the day looking out the window. He has loved scratching and biting off the velcro. The more velcro I applied, the more he ripped off. I have used a staple gun to hold it in place and time will tell how long it holds. This is the only negative to this kitten loves it and I recommend it. Manufacturer needs to come up with a more secure fastening system but we've fixed that on this end.

The Purrfect Perch

I purchased my 2nd Ultimate cat scratching post along with this MUST-HAVE perch for a different room. He loves and uses both!

Not for our cat

This add-on for the scratching post does not attach tightly to the scratching post. Our cat wont use it. Don’t recommend.

If you get the post, you need this too!

This should come with the post instead of being an add on. Also, it should be made in the colors that match the post. Regardless of those facts, it doubled the size of the perch which allows two kitties to sit on top and one to sleep. They love it!
