"My cats love it!"
When my cats get angry with me, they run into the scratcher and scratch like crazy. I think it's an anger release for them. LOL!
My cat loves these! He is always scratching on them (NONE STOP). VERY DURABLE. One refill last about 6 months (MAYBE MORE). I got the kong scratchier, but he destroyed it in 2 days! Some kitty's hate them and won't even stand on them.
"Some Cats Love It"
I'm not really sure about how effective this is in reducing the amount of nail trimming, but of my six cats, three really love it. In fact this will be the third refill I've ordered.
"Cat Don't Like"
We have 70 cats in our rescue and not one will use these. My guess is the surface is too rough and hurts their sensitive paws pads. Spend your money on the Kong corrugated cardboard scratchers which all cats use and love--even sleep on the extra wide one. They save the furniture and carpet.
Yes. Bored. The cats haven't even so much as lounged on this contraption. We have two Siamese that claw their way through one cat tree a year and they have ignored this thing. Nice idea but it hasn't worked for us.
