I have many cat scratchers over the house but my cats still preferred my furniture I had enough. I bought one of these for one of my cats that was using my new shelves as a scratching post. Put it on the floor below the shelves and it worked she loves it. Now my other cats have found it and they seek it out. Helps it has catnip on it to start with, I have now purchased two more. My 4 cats love this above all others and it's the cheapest.
This scratcher is much taller than I thought it would be, which turned out to be perfect for my large male cat who likes to stretch himself out about a metre and a half up the wall in order to sharpen his claws. Certainly beats shredded wallpaper! It is also nicely made and very inexpensive. Very pleased with this item, would recommend.
put scratch post on the wall and my cat ignored it so took it down and left it on the floor while deciding what to do with it. To my amazement decided she likes it on the floor and uses it all the time. So had to leave it on the floor as the cat is boss in our house.
Have recently purchased one of these, and am about to order another two. Our cats are quite large [Maine Coon Breed] These Cat shape scratch posts are ideal as they screw to the wall and; as we have lots of cat things dotted about our Cottage fit in really well. Wished we had spotted these years ago, our Sofa's are now having a well earned rest! Thank You Zooplus
