It is quite big, so make sure you have a good space for it. Assembly is easy and it is very sturdy. The size means that even my large male cat can stretch while scratching. Most importantly, both my cats use it and don't scratch the furniture anymore. I did rub it with catnip to entice them and that worked perfectly. Every cat is different, but I did not expect this scratching post to truly reform my cats and it has.
This is the one that finally solved the problem of destroyed furniture and doorframes. Both cats love it and are easily redirected back to this post when they get curious somewhere else. Great purchase worth the investment.
This is the 2nd Ultimate scratching post I’ve ordered as I was happy to notice it in grey. The other can go in the downstairs as we have 2 cats and maybe each prefers their own. That one was purchased 3 years ago and the sisal is only beginning to show very minor signs of fraying.
But what I really like most about this cat scratching post is after years of wasting money on others this one is so solid. Our one finicky cat isn’t large but if she detected the slightest bit of sway or movement on the prior smaller scratching posts, that was it, she wouldn’t go near them ever again. That’s probably why the solid arm of the couch was her preference until this proved the ultimate solution. Definitely recommended!
The holy grail of cat scratchers! Where has this been all my life?? Have a jerk of a cat that refused every tree or pole I ever bought... and I’m talking thousands of $$$ worth. He preferred all the leather furniture. Finally, I’ve found one he’ll use!! This thing is tall, heavy, well built. He hasn’t even knocked it over yet. (He’s 18lbs of solid, muscled wildcat.) Bought two more. ;)
I have a big 15lb cat. He loves this post most out of any I have bought him. Hes able to stretch to the top to get a good scratch in, without it tipping over. I may purchase another to have in different rooms of the house.
I noted previous complaints about a very stubborn sticker being glued to the top of the floor mount. Ours was as well however being forewarned we had goo gone on hand. After soaking the sticker with this product the sticker peeled right off without leaving any residue. Word of warning when rinsing the goo gone off DO NOT soak the floor mount in water because is press board and it will warp. Simply wipe it clean. The post is nice and tall, our cats took to it immediately. So far we would recommend this product.
I wish it was cheaper but the quality is great. My cat actually uses it! I was using an old faux leather chair for my cat to scratch but it got ugly and so we found this. It’s a great size to replace the ugly chair. My cat can jump up and perch on the top.
