Product Details

Give your cat an ergonomic advantage with the SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post. Its 32-inch post allows for a vertical “full stretch” when scratching – important for toning muscles and psychological wellness in marking territory. Made with quality ingredients, it’s covered in durable and fibrous woven sisal that won’t snag nails like carpet-covered scratching posts and its sturdy base prevents tipping.
SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post Features and Benefits:

* Fibrous and durable woven sisal naturally inspires scratching
* Superior to carpeted posts that may snag nails
* Alleviates stress, frusteration and boredom
* Assembles with two included screws
* Attractive and neutrally toned.


Smart and caring cat owners know that claws are very important to cats. Claws give the cat a sense of security, knowing that their defense system is intact. They also allow the cat to grasp and hold objects as well as establish footing for walking, running, springing, climbing and stretching. SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post is designed to maximize your cat's scratching pleasure by providing an appealing target for territorial marking, exercise, and a playful warm-up. By regularly trimming your cat's nails and offering a suitable scratching item, you are providing a natural outlet for a normal, happy and healthy behavior and you will be rewarded with a satisfied and confident companion.

    I have a large Turkish Angora that won't ever let me cut his nails. He doesn't like to scratch on things except my furniture which he was tearing up. I had covered everything so he couldn't scratch on our furniture. Then he turned to the walls! He would stand up and scratch on the corners where walls would meet in our apartment. That was the last straw. I researched and finally decided to try this post. I knew it had to be tall since our cat wants to stretch out while standing to scratch. The first two days he wouldn't go near it. Our other two kitties would use it. However, they were already trained to use a scratching rug that we had. I finally put some catnip on the post (dry and rubbed it in)…….. YES! He then began using it. HE LOVES IT. We see he uses it ONLY and nothing else at least 4 times a day. It is funny since at times the three of them each take a side and scratch at the same time too. This post has saved us. We were at wits end as to what to do to keep our kitty from damaging our apartment.

    It took my cat more than a month to use this post. I have another high quality post from elsewhere that he likes much better. I don't like the fact that you can see the seams both in the post covering and in the particle board top and bottom - it makes it look cheap, and there is no way to position the post in a room to avoid seeing the seams. It is also not as sturdy as it should be - tightened as much as possible, it still wobbles.

      My cat loves his post! It's just the right height for him as he's a long cat so he can stretch to his full length. He's very protective of it - if I touch it he tries to push me away. I recommend this highly for all cat owners,

      Comments about SmartCat Ultimate Cat Scratching Post:

      Djinn-Djinn is a long bodied cat that likes to scratch upright, so the furniture was her natural go-to. It took her about three weeks to notice this scratcher, but once she did, she walks past my couch, upholstered chair, and foot rest to dig her claws in. She is VERY vigorous, and the post is sturdy enough that I've had a glass of red wine on top while she scratched and it stayed put. It is tall enough that even a long-bodied cat has room to spare. If you can afford it, it's worth the money.

        My cats have stopped ripping up my furniture. They use the scratching post almost every time they walk by it.
