To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a pricy scratching post for what it is. It’s not very sturdy and the teaser on top broke off really quickly. My cat doesn’t care for anything but the marbles but even if he scratched it I could see it easily tipping over.
Every one of my 7 adult cats used this within hours. Easy to put together and well priced. It is a multi purpose item so some took right to scratching it while others quickly noticed the marbles. It waa a party at the pole!
I can not even tell you how many cat toys and scratching posts I have bought over the years and this one is the best so far! Super easy to put together. The kitties are entertained for hours with the two little marbles in the base. The two different materials to scratch on are a plus. It is super sturdy with both kittens on either side at the same time and it does not even move! I did remove the ball because one of the kittens got it wrapped around his paw somehow and was hogtied. I was there supervising so all was good but now it is a solo play toy without the elastic! It is almost like 3 toys in one. Well worth the money. I have recommended it to my friends on FB but warn them to cut the ball off because of what happened to Finnly and because of another warning from a friend too!
I was hesitant to buy this because I know each cat is different and I'd have no way of knowing how my kittens would like it, but I went by the majority of positive reviews and I'm glad I did! My kittens love this so much! The tracks in the base with the marbles is just brilliant, however, I have to say that my 4 month old kitten never noticed or had any interest in that part of this post until the 2 month old discovered it-he loves it,, but her paws are already a little too big for her to really move the ball around enough to keep it interesting to her. On the other hand, they are both obsessed with the ball hanging from the top! This post has held up very well to their scratching and they use it often. They really seem to love it and I am very glad I bought it.
Real easy to put together, in fact my six-year-old granddaughter did it on her own. My 2 1/2 month old kitty cat seems to love it! I like the fact that she is using her claws on something other than the furniture 😉
This is such a fun scratching and play post. I have now had this a month, and my cats love it! As you can tell, my cat loves the rope the best. The marbles are fun to watch the cats chase around. I sprayed catnip spray on the hanging ball on top, and they definitely loved that. The post is not very big, but it is good quality.
I have bought other scratching post in the past and this is by far the sturdiest. The marbles in the bottom do not make too much noise which is a plus, the cats love it. Wish I would have purchased it sooner to save my chair....
