It’s empty in here!
This scratching board fell apart at first use. The upper half of the scratching pad detached from the backing board. The staples were still intact but had come through the board. The product is shoddy and defective. I am writing the review today as it has been in the back of a press for awhile and I am now throwing it in the bin.
We have 2 of these, one is attached to the wall and one is left flat on the floor. One of our cats prefers vertical scratching but they all love horizontal scratching. It's very strong and take a lot of punishment..
Great idea, and good value for money.
My cats are soooo happy! I purchased 4 of these and put them on the corner of a wall in my kitchen ( they like this corner!) Well within seconds of me finishing drilling and putting them up they were up the top!!! What great boards, and they'll certainly last longer than the one I had up before!! Look at my photos " Crazy Cats " they are happy!!
The board is built very well and comes with a little sachet of cat nip which is great! I attached it to the wall in the living room and was disappointed that my cat wouldn't go near it, but after reading that cats like a scratch after a nap, I took it down and lay it on the floor near his cat bed. He IMMEDIATELY went over to it and started scratching and rolling on it! So there you go :) I think he'll continue to enjoy it.
I bought this scratch pad for my cats 2 years ago.I screwed it to the kitchen wall. It is very good and the cats love it. It is good quality and still looks like new.
My kitten started scratching the furniture. But when i got this she quickly decided that she loved it. 1 year on and she still using this everyday. Its still going strong with minimal fraying.
Been looking for a replacement scratching board for sometime that wasn't made of useless cardboard but could also stand up to the use of two cats. Also purchased scratching mat (reviewed separately) but this is a far superior item. Highly recommend.
cheap and easy to put up, has lasted my 3 cats for 2 years . . .
My cat loves these, and it protects walls/wallpaper where he likes to have a scratch deliberately to get me to chase him or let me know he wants a look outside(limited as I'm in a flat). He has two posts, but these placed where he likes to claw a wall give him extra stimulation and claw-trimming opportunities. I'm now ordering more for a friend whose cat goes outside, but will make good use of these. One thing: the supplied screws are too short, so use larger /longer ones to keep the board secure as if it comes off the wall while the cat is using it it will frighten the cat and it won't try again.
i brought this for my 3 cats (age 1-2) i brought the smaller one that is a good size, i nailed this to the side of the kitchen door where they where always scratching anyways! i have had this for about 1 year and it still has lots of life left in it! and they use it everyday!!
