good value for money, does the job, space saving, cat likes it,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trixie 43172 Jumbo Scratching Post 17 ﾗ 70 cm Grey (Misc.)
this is a good value for money scratching board that my cat does enjoy.
I have a "pole" style small post in the middle of the living room and she likes that one as well.
the thing with this one is that it's space saving, discreet and does the job.
it's not amazing quality in it that it's a sisal covered board stuck to a bit of what looks like cardboard with a hole on the top and the bottom for screwing to walls, sofas, etc. but the price is fair, so it has met my expectations very nicely.
it has a small pouch of catnip to rub on the sisal bit, but my cat is one of those "rare types" that isn't too bothered by catnip, so I hoovered that up after a while as it creates a bit of a mess with bits of catnip sprinkling off the board as the cat scratches it.
for those worried about hole screwing on your walls like I am, I suggest using the 3M Command damage free hanging strips.
I used about 6x of them (2x at the top, 2x at the middle, 2x at the bottom, prob going overboard as this is quite a light item), but it's very sturdy on the wall next to where my cat sleeps. She enjoys yawning after a snooz and then stretching up with her claws on this board. It's also good for marking territory, and this is by the window where she stares so it's good because she is leaving her scent in an "entrance" that might be attractive to "invading cats".
I guess one could fix this to a sofa's arm or something as well if they wanted to, so it's good value overall.
