"When my human brought me home from the cat shelter, I found this. I worked out fast what it was for. Indeed, I soon discovered that it was just as good as wooden door jambs for sharpening my front claws.
For a while, I kept scratching door jambs as well as this post. But then my human started giving me a tasty treat each time I scratched the post. She called this 'training', and I liked the idea very much.
I trained her to bring me a tasty treat each time I scratched the post. She learned really fast.
Humans are highly intelligent creatures and can be trained as companions and housekeeping staff. I've trained mine well.
Whenever I scratch this post, she says "Good, Sulu, good", she strokes my face and brings me a treat. I summon snack delivery services several times daily.
The height of the post is about right for a perfectly proportioned cat like myself. 'Medium size' the vet says. I wonder what 'tall' or 'extra tall' is supposed to mean here. If I were any taller, I'd have to use the door jambs again. This would be a shame, because my human doesn't reward me for scratching those.
One of the first things I did with this post was rip off that silly toy at the top. I was only 9 months old at the time, but even then I possessed sophisticated taste and that silly thing just wouldn't do.
I hated that ring in the middle. It prevented me from having a good scratch. I could only scratch half way, and then the movement stopped. Very annoying - not like the gloriously uninterrupted scratching one gets on a door jamb.
Since I couldn't remove the ring myself, I instructed my human (who has opposable thumbs) do this for me. She was slow to understand what I wanted her to do, so I had a go myself. I unscrewed the upper part from the lower. This was quite a challenge without opposable thumbs, but I found a way: I hooked my claws into the top part and walked around the post. This unscrewed it nicely.
My human actually screwed it back on, but after I repeated the action three more times, she got the message and removed that ring, so now I had a blissful uninterrupted scratch.
After one year, the post became unsightly. The sisal was frayed, and it was no longer of much use. By now I had discovered the alternative scratching facilities in the garden (raised vegetable beds, neighbourhood tree trunks), and was also considering returning to the door jambs. My human agreed with my assessment that the scratching post needed refurbishment. She tried to turn parts of the post upside down which would have been a neat solution. But the designers of this item obviously lacked the foresight to provide such a simple option.
My human pulled off the damaged sisal (and for a while, the light and dark cords were fun to play with) and glued on a new, thicker, stronger sisal rope. I really like this one. It gives a blissful scratch and I haven't even looked at the door jambs since.
I've discovered another exciting use for this scratching post. If I stand on it - quite a feat of balance, see attached photo - and turn around myself, my human gets excited, heaps lavish praise on me, and brings me as many treats as I like. Like I said, humans are highly trainable."
The mouse lasted all of five seconds but, having bought our spoiled boys multiple such things in the 15 months we've had them, we've learned that any toy involving a dangly mouse on a string will not last more than a couple of hours (the strings snap EVERY single time).
So, mouse aside, this scratching post is a really good one and has lasted beautifully for over a year now. It has a very stable base, unlike some others, and its height means your little ones can use it as kittens through to giant big boys like ours. Gets used on a daily basis and is one of their favourite places to scratch (aside from my boyfriend's jeans and my tights).
I noticed our cat only using the bottom half of it, so I removed the MPP(Mid-Pole Patty) and now he's using the whole thing, getting a good stretch. It looks better sans the MPP too.
Overall a fantastic product, nice and tall so cats can get a proper stretch!
