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

SmartCat The Ultimate Scratching Post is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 449.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last Scratching Post You'll Ever Need. We've tried all kinds of scratching contraptions for our cats, but the SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post is--hands down--the best ever! The quality is amazing--sturdy, well-crafted, covered in long-wearing sisal--and it's fairly attractive looking in our great room! All of our cats absolutely love it and use it regularly. The height and stability encourage them to stretch (and they love doing this). No other scratching items ever encouraged this behavior. Another plus is that the 32" height creates another "perch," giving them the elevated vantage point that cats love. We've had our SmartCat post for about three years now. I've located it close to a wall, and only one side has been getting much use. I just now have had to rotate the post to a "new" side because of the sisal covering getting shredded--by four to six cats in the house at any one time. This post will probably outlast us all! Don't hesitate to get this scratching post! Your cats will love you for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great scratching post! I went searching for a substantial post for my two large ragdoll cats. Actually purchased this exact item at a local pet store, happened to check on Chewy, and found I had just paid DOUBLE for the exact product. Quickly returned it to the store and ordered it from Chewy. Very sturdy, well-made product - exactly what a larger, taller cat needs for stretching and scratching with no tip over. Covering material seems durable and nicely finished. Only reason I did not rate it five stars was a minor problem on the base. One of the screws holding the base to the post was recessed, the other was not causing the head to stick above the base which would have resulted in scratching the floor and making the post unsteady. My husband was able to slightly carve out around the screw and solve the issue. Cats seem to love it and are frequently using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our furbabies LOVE this scratching post! We have 4 kitties, and desperately needed a new scratching post. We were going to order from another company that we've ordered from in the past, with VERY high prices, but then Chewy.com was recommended by a friend. Basically the same product is more than 1/2 the price of the one we were going to get. Our cats LOVE it! Our tortie stretches up and hangs from it. Our snowshoe sits on the perch and smacks the other cats that come near the post and our other 2 love it too. They can stretch all the way up, and they really enjoy scratching on it, and playing near it. We love it so much, that we just ordered another one today, and will probably order one more soon. They have stopped scratching the furniture since we got the post! Yay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durability saves you money We used to go through a scratching pole every 2-3 months. Our cat would make short work of sisal poles, and once they were gone, she'd move on to the carpet or couch, so we had to keep her busy. In contrast, this thing lasts for years. We just replaced our first one which we got about 2-3 years ago. She's very determined so she still wears it out faster than some other reviewers' cats but since it lasts ten times as long as what we had before we are still coming out way ahead. This thing is money well spent. If you are a cheapskate like us, once your cat wears out the top you can kind of take it apart and flip it upside down. It's wobblier that way but still works for a while and exposes new scratching territory for the cat. Besides saving you money, it's much taller, which the cat loves stretching out on and climbing on all fours, plus it looks a lot better than most cheap scratchers. A winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scratcher ever! I bought one 5 years ago and my 2 cats use it every day! I also bought one for my friend who rescued 2 kittens. They use theirs every day. I then bought a second one for my cats because they were wearing the first one out. It resides in my living room. It's nice looking, sturdy, well built and tall enough for my 17 lb male cat. It only takes minutes to assemble. We love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's early days, but so far an excellent purchase Heavy sucker--a challenge to get unpacked. But the base is easy to put together (just be sure you notice the counter-sunk holes--they both need to be on the same side) and attach it to the post itself and it seems to be very sturdy. It's also a good height for my still-growing Norwegian Forest Cat--not so high as to be unstable but high enough to scratch and stretch. She's noticed it and uses it --a little catnip spray to get her initial attention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scrath pad Our cat was using our furniture and anything else she could find as a scratch pad - even the cardboard pads were not working. From the moment we set this scratching post up for use, our cat took to using it - and has been using it several times a day. I am not finding her using our furniture for scratching - wow what a difference! so happy I found something stable, strong and just right for our cat - we are both living much happier now!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Attractive, Solidly built scratching post. This is a very nice scratching post with a minimalistic design, made to fit in with any décor. It was real simple to put together and was done in just a few minutes. The scratching post itself is very nice. It has a nice weight to it so my cat can easily put her weight on it without it moving. It also has a nice height so she can get a nice stretch in. The only downside is that I have to mention, and this is just from my own personal experience, is that my cat is just not that attracted to the post. She'll scratch on it occasionally but seems to get her claws stuck in the sisal and doesn't take to it too much. She mainly uses it to stretch. She actually would rather scratch the cardboard box it came in. She may just need to break it in but I've had it now for a month and still seldom uses it. She's had other sisal scratching posts that she uses but they have always been rope and not woven material. That is my one reservation, If this changes I will be sure to update my review in the future.
