Needs better fixings
on 4 December 2012
This scratching board is only secured by two screws at the top so it tends to flap about a bit. As I'd read other reviews before purchasing it I was aware that I may need additional fixings. Rest assured that you will. The board itself is well constructed and solid enough. I fixed it to my wall, gave it a couple of sprays of Kong Catnip (not included - bought separately) and off we went! The kittens seem to like it and I've witnessed them using it without prompting, so all well and good. Why i've marked it down slightly is that it does wobble around without additional screws to fix the bottom corners, so you will have to invest in some more fixings which are appropriate for your wall...and the catnip supplied is worst than useless! There's no way that herb catnip will stay on this board when it's fixed upright! You really need to purchase a catnip spray to encourage your cats to use it.
EDIT: 22nd December 2012 - the 'fixings' for the corner scratching board have ripped and it is hanging off the wall. Now pretty much useless. I thought when I purchased it that it would last longer than two months but clearly my expectations were too high.
