This seemed like it would be great, and it looks good, but it's a total waste of money since the scratch pads aren't replaceable. It's rather expensive for a throw away. :(
My 2 girls received this scratcher for their 1st birthday present and they fell in love with it the minute I put it together! They're always taking turns scratching or just sitting on it like a throne! Very easy and quick to assemble. Much sturdier than I expected. We love it!!
The cat has not shown any interest but if he did i doubt the scratcher would hold up. It is light weight, moves easily. Not worth the purchase.
My two cats just love this and it is so much nicer than the flat on the floor scratchers. They get to stretch and scratch and I don't have cardboard all over the place. Everyone who sees it loves it and I tell them, "I bought it from Chewy. They have everything you need to make your fur babies happy."
Great idea for cats who scratch high, bad idea because once the cat(s) scratch it to bits you have to toss the whole thing. The only only scratch board you can replace is the small one n most likely you have to cut it to fit. I have newer furniture that I’m hoping this will deter the cat’s scratching the backs of the chairs otherwise it would go back. To expensive for a scratch post
My cats weigh 15lbs and love this! They use it for scratching and sitting. Now it's an essential part of midday zoomies!
Our 2 cats love this. Did not take long for them to check out and use it numerous times through out each day.
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.
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.
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.
