UPDATE: It’s now been about nine months since I made this hanging sisal scratching post, and it is still good as new! The cats still use it every day and the rope is still firmly attached to the board; it hasn’t started drooping or sliding off at all!
For the "ultimate" in sisal cat scratching posts, we have combined our vertical scratching post with a TopCat Flat Scratcher giving your cats a choice of vertical or horizontal scratchingsurfaces. Our post also includes the following unique combination of features:
For over 80 years the Felix Katnip Tree Company has handcrafted the best sisal scratching posts for a healthy and happy cat. Felix Katnip Trees are made with only the finest materials available in the United States.
If you have a problem with your cat scratching your furniture like it’s their own scratching post, then you have a few options: One is to have your cat declawed, but many are reluctant to do that. The second is to try and dissuade your cat from scratching your furniture by using a water bottle that squirts out water. After a period of time this may work but it’s not %100 guaranteed. The third option is to buy a sisal fabric scratching post like the brand PurrFect Post, which apparently cats seem to favor over other fabric posts and furniture. Personally, I would go with option three, but that’s just me.
