Cat Tree Scratching Post Kitten Cat Scratcher Clim&hellip by Leopet®
With two new kittens currently shredding all the furniture when they have their 'silly half hours' every evening, I considered buying a scratching post or a little play tunnel for them. However, for only £20 more than the bigger scratching posts, I saw this 'cat tree' and decided to take the plunge.

It's fantastic. I put it together in under 20 minutes, and the kitties were climbing all over it before it was even done. It's very sturdy, and heavy, so there's no way even two rampaging cats could tip it over. (Fingers crossed for the future!)

Quite aside from the phenomenal acting and wonderful direction of this film, the storyline is solid and works on so many different levels. Although set in a slightly different time period from the original novel, the plot has been translated perfectly to a near-future which is 100% believable, given the current state of the world... some wonderful real-world ideas are brought 'up-to-date' with the future timeline, and you find yourself chilled by the familiarity of Cuaron's vision.

The action sequences are presented in the 'hyper-real' style of Spielberg's best (such as 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'War of the Worlds') with some inspired cinematography, and there are some moments of… Read more
