Description

Reach for the stars (and scratch a little when you get there)! The SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post has a 32" post height that allows cats to get a full stretch, tone their muscles, and mark their territory without clawing walls or curtains. It's covered in a fibrous woven sisal that won't snag nails like carpet-covered scratch posts.

Key Benefits

  • Sturdy 16" x 16" base keeps post from tipping and wobbling
  • 32" post height allows your cat to stretch vertically while using the post (important for territorial marking purposes and for toning muscles).
  • Fibrous and durable woven sisal naturally inspires scratching and relieves cat's stress without snagging cats' nails
  • Attractive and neutrally toned to fit in with any home decor
  • Assembles quickly and easily with two included screws

    I was honestly hesitant to spend this much money on a cat scratcher because my kitten already had like 3 other ones, but he was scratching this one dining room chair really bad. So I went on a search and came across this, I read the reviews where people said this was a miracle scratcher and I'm like sure, it worked for them but my kitty loves scratching that dining room chair. So I got it & the instructions say to put it right by the object you want them to stop scratching and he was immediately drawn to the new post and hasn't scratched on the chair again since I got this- I kid you not! Now this thing is large in size, but that's why it's so effective because he loved to stand tall and reach I was honestly hesitant to spend this much money on a cat scratcher because my kitten already had like 3 other ones, but he was scratching this one dining room chair really bad.

    Well, it looks nice. But so far neither of my cats will use it. One went over to it when it first arrived and gave it a tentative scratch. Hasn't gone back to it. When I put on catnip spray. they both laid by it for a while and sniffed at it but neither scratched it. I have put it in several places, particularly by my new leather couch that one is scratching. I have gone over to it a pretended to scratch at it while they watched. Didn't entice them to try it at all.

  • Great Scratching Post!

    By on

    This is actually my second scratching post for the kitties. It is awesome! It is tall enough so they can really stretch and scratch their claws. It is very sturdy and durable. Our first one lasted for quite a few years before having to replace it. I wanted to let you know that at Chewy.com I got it for half the price than the company I purchased it from before. I love Chewy.com! Best deals and fastest deliveries ever!

  • Our cat LOVES it!

    By on

    We have a couple of cat trees with short scratching posts, but purchased this model 2 months ago because of it's tall single pole after reading how cats like to stretch when scratching. Our cat Pixel took to it before I could even get it assembled! Assembly was VERY easy, the base is two pieces screwed to the post. She LOVES to get a big stretch up high on the post and it's good and stable for our 9 lb DSH tabby. One modification I did is add is felt pads on the underside of the base to prevent floor scratches as it sits on our hardwood floor. Sometimes Pixel jumps on top even though we don't have the lounging pad (sold separately on Chewy) for this unit. Overall we love it and Pixel recommends We have a couple of cat trees with short scratching posts, but purchased this model 2 months ago because of it's tall single pole after reading how cats like to stretch when scratching.

  • SUPER SCRATCHER!

    By on

    My cats were wall scratchers...I had other posts, but they were just not tall enough and made of rope, which may not be the favorite. I took the plunge and ordered this post as a last resort. I was tired of saying No and No every minute. Well, this is the BEST! After a couple of instructional scratches...they got the idea and now, rarely are scratching up the walls. They have enough height on this post and the corners appeal to them. Plus the material on the post itself seems to be more desirable. You cannot beat this post for the stretchers!

  • The Best Post Ever!

    By on

    My cat, Ms. Cinnabon loves this post. She is able to really get some stretching in while she is scratching. I hope Chewy keeps carrying this item. I only wish the scratching surface were a little extra thick. I also have the quilted red perch seat that fits on top so she can look out the window in comfort.

  • Excellent Scratching Post

    By on

    My very large Ragdoll loves this scratching post and has abandoned all others in the house for this. So many scratching posts and cat trees are covered in hideous carpet, but this one is much less offensive design-wise. Just be aware that the wood color is lighter than shown in the picture and the base was twice the size I was expecting. It's necessary to keep it from toppling over but be sure to take measurements before buying as it's a bit of a monstrosity if you live in a smaller space.

  • SOLID!!! Cats love it!!!

    By on

    I ordered two of these. This scratcher is heavy duty and an excellent product. It is taller than it looks and my cats get a nice stretch when they use it. Buy this item with confidence. Rub some catnip on it. You and your furniture will be glad you did.

  • Best thing ever!!

    By on

    Soon as my kitty saw this, he went for it. Scratched it up, and played with it even. I'm so happy to have finally found a scratching post he actually uses. It's very good for his post-nap stretch too. He's a big kitty so this is great height.
