Cat Approved

Both my cats love it! They scratch it often (I’m trying to get my orange one to leave my couch alone and it’s working 85% of the time). They both lay or sit on it often. It does move easily on the floor, just make sure to find a good spot. Weasley (orange cat) on the first day managed to block me in a nearby bathroom! I’ll be getting another one for upstairs as well.

Good idea but flawed design

I thought this would be the perfect solution for my cat scratching problem, but there is a basic flaw in the design. It works if my cat scratches the floor of the scratcher but if he scratches the back, the vertical portion, the piece moves, which makes it less desirable for the cat to use, as they prefer scratchers (or furniture) that are stable. I had to add weights to the floor of the piece which stabilized it, but took up a large portion of the floors scratching area. If it were made from wood that may have solved the problem but it’s made from poster board, so it’s lightweight. I would have preferred to pay a higher price for a scratcher that was more stable.

Cheaply made, wasteful product

I wish I'd read the reviews. It looked like it was going to be perfect for my cat, but I was blown away at how cheaply made it is. It is literally cardboard held together with double sided tape. You can't get replacements for the inserts either. It just grinds my gears that they try to justify using super cheap materials by saying it won't end up in a landfill? Would love to know how that works since you have to throw the whole thing away and start fresh each time your cat goes through it. I'm sending it right back.

looks nice but lacks durability

Looks really nice and sleek for a cardboard scratcher but does not hold up to regular use. I've had this set up for less than a week and my 7 lb cat used it only a few times before the base separated from the vertical part. Would be better if the adhesive were stronger and the wood pegs attaching the vertical and horizontal parts were longer to provide more stability.

Loved it at first

It's pretty. It matches my decor perfectly and I had a perfect spot for it. My cats immediately stopped scratching the couch. Then, less than a year later it's torn to shreds. I'd buy it again if it was cheaper. Or if the current style had scratcher refills. But seeing as it's trash now, I'm not very happy and wouldn't pay that price again for a throw away.

Great scratch post!

My cats love it! They love to stretch up their entire length. AND, they have stopped scratching the furniture! I definitely recommend this product. It had to be assembled; instructions were clear, easy to follow!

Tall Cat Scratcher

My cats LOVE this scratcher...!! Would be better if there was a replacement pad available for it. I will be stapling old carpeting to it when it is worn out. It's very durable & lasting a long time compared to others I have purchased. I have 5 cats that are using it...!!

Keeps Cat from Scratching Furniture

The Way Basics Vertical Scratcher Cat Toy was easy to assemble and is sturdy. My cat had been clawing a chair so I put the scratcher next to it. The cat started using the scratcher immediately. The height is a nice size so she cat stretch out while scratching.

No Point Investing in it

This looks awesome and exactly what I am looking for, but no point if you can’t replace it. I’m not going to pay for the whole structure when it will be destroyed in two months with no options. Disappointing, was so excited when I saw it. They say it’s ‘greener’ but you have to repurchase product every time it’s fully used (and if you have more than one adult cat, that’s a lot) Hopefully they remedy that soon, would definitely buy it and use plenty of replacements!

We have 8 cats, so we have many scratching posts. I was VERY impressed with the accurate instructions and easy assembly of this one. EVERY pre-drilled hole lined up, all the pieces were there, and it went together very quickly, even for a fumbler like me. Yes, it’s not the sturdiest scratcher we own, but it’s held up well. I like the fact that it’s made from RECYCLED materials, so it’s Earth friendly! I like to support Eco companies. The bottom line: Our cats like it!
