Cat uses it regularly in the kitchen so we bought a second one for the living room.
Forget the cheaper cat scratching posts - our feline friends can soon utterly annihilate them, because many are made with cardboard, for some mad reason. I was reluctant to buy this higher-priced one, but it is totally worth it. Not only will this one easily withstand the most robust catly assaults (including my unusually large 5-year-old rescue cat), but it is a tower of a scratching post, which will please and help your cat because the extra height allows them to have a jolly good stretch as they scratch. No longer will your carpet have to do this job. The base and top are sturdy and sensible, only needing the most cursory construction, and incredibly quick and simple. I have a lot of physical disabilities, including major hand use restrictions, and even I managed to get the post, base, and top together very quickly and easily - without hurting myself or struggling.
The post comes with construction leaflet, and also advice on attracting your cat to the new scratching post. Get some catnip in ready, they can't resist it. Also, the package contains a link to a really useful and free pet advice service, which was an unexpected bonus. If you allow your cat to roam upstairs and downstairs (as we do), then it's a good idea to buy two scratching posts, because then the carpet on the other floor won't be put through it. My cat Lily is chuffed with the two of these scratching posts I bought her for Christmas, and both the furniture and the carpets are safe again! Highly recommended.
Good for a Ragamuffin cat
Our Ragamuffin is HUGE! Weighs more than a stone. He has destroyed a wicker washing basket but this scratching post is strong enough to stay in tact for the time being. Tall enough for him. He loves a stretch and a good clawing every time he walks past it. The post is attractive and not ‘kitch’ like many we have seen. Will buy another when he eventually destroys this one.
Solid, sturdy scratch post - the cats love it
Bought this to replace a well-used scratching post. This is a well-built, sturdy item (note: the base comes in two pieces which you put together, but is the solidly screwed into the tower). The best thing about this is the height: we have two large Maine Coon cats and this works perfectly for them in the way smaller scratching posts wouldn't. It has only been in use since Christmas day, but the cats took to it immediately. It also looks smarter, a bit more elegant than the previous one. Would recommend this to anyone who has large cats.
Best scratching post i have bought. Good quality. Nice and sturdy. Well worth the cost
Great product, my cat loves sitting on top of it so might have to buy the attachment
Good value and very sturdy
My six cats love this scratching post

Good height for cats to stretch up and scratch. Impressed.
