Great option for disabled cats!
I was looking for something different as my cat is disabled and can no longer use a vertical scratcher. He loves the cardboard ones but they move around a lot so this was purrfect. It is sturdy and quite heavy so he can really have a good spray and exercise his muscles as we'll as keep his claws tidy.
Although it looks ideal for my needs I haven't yet persuaded the delinquent carpet scratcher to take to it; I have hopes as he uses the tall one of the same fabric.
PS to review of the tall upright one - it's excellent value at the sale price; i wouldn't have spent £70 on it.
Couldn't get our tabby Honey to scratch his upright posts for love nor money. He much preferred tearing our carpet to shreds
Now he loves the floor scratcher ! He can look after his claws and the carpet is totally ignored now
My daughter's cat wrecked our old hall carpet through her scratching. It was overdue to be replaced anyway but I didn't want my new one being damaged. The cat had no interest in her vertical scratcher. I thought I'd give this a try as it could be placed on the floor so would be more like the carpet. She loves it. Not only for scratching, she uses it as a perch too. My new carpet has so far not been targeted, so I'm very happy. The product was much cheaper than other sites were selling it and the service was great.
Excellent value for money
I bought this product two years ago,still going strong. My cat uses it often, never scratched the carpet or furniture.just leave it on the floor and suppose it feels like carpet to him. Highly recommend and excellent value for money.
I have a large cat who loves this placed slightly higher on the wall, as she can stretch whille scratching.
1st horizontal scratcher we've had and it's a huge hit. Sturdy, and a perfect size for our adult cats. They both love scratching it and quite like just sitting on it too. Fabulous product - considering buying a second one in a bid to distract them from scratching stair carpet. 100% recommended and a great alternative to the usual vertical scratching posts.
My very large tuxedo cat Louis loves to stretch out to his full length when he gets up in the morning. This scratcher has been placed on the half landing half way down the stairs so that he can give his claws a good workout. Cardboard scratchers really don't stand up to the thrashing Louis gives them this is sturdy and well made.
Brilliant for my older cat
I bought this for my older cat who has arthritis in his back legs and cannot use the upright one/ He loves it, using it as a scratcher and a pillow. Well made like all SmartCat products
Having tried various scratching type products I gave this a go due to the price - what a great decision! My cats absolutely adore this product. The quality is fantastic, very sturdy and is holding up despite my cats giving it their best. Its quite portable (we chose not to wall mount) and I can put it away easily - when i bring it out my cats come running. Amazing value and highly recommend.
