Features and Benefits:


  • Fibrous and durable sisal material naturally inspires scratching.
  • Perfect for conditioning nails (superior to carpeting which snags nails and encourages scratching on other carpeted surfaces).
  • Sturdy base eliminates wobbling and tipping which could discourage the cat from future attempts to use the post.
  • The 32" post height allows the cat to stretch vertically while using the post (important for territorial marking purposes and for toning muscles).
  • The finest materials and workmanship guarantee a scratching post that will remain attractive and useful.

Why do cats scratch?

  • To remove old nail sheaths from the claws
  • To exercise and tone muscles
  • To relieve stress, frustration and boredom
  • To "warm up" for a vigorous play session
  • To mark territory


SmartCatâ„¢ Training Tips:

  • Place the post in a room where the cat spends a lot of time. Cats often like to stretch and scratch when they wake up from a nap.
  • To introduce the post to your cat try using catnip as a lure. (For most cats a lure is unnecessary, but fun.) Rub catnip onto the sisal material and call the cat over to the post.
  • Scratch your nails along the surface of the material. This will attract the cat and at the same time teach him where to scratch.
  • After your cat begins to scratch, praise him and give him a food treat. (Small kittens can be trained to climb the post by showing them food treats and placing it at the top of the post.
  • If your cat has already been scratching a piece of furniture, place the post directly in front of it.
  • Temporarily cover the previously scratched areas with a few strips of double-sided carpet tape or clear double-sided tape strips that are designed for this purpose. This will help redirect your cat's scratching activities to the post.

The SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post has been in our home for years now. Both my cats love it and use it all the time. The 32" height is good for larger cats as mine big ones were never satisfied with the smaller posts. They get to scratch and also get a good stretch out if it. Time for a new one.

Natalie's experience with the SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post is, This item works very well with our three cats. The height lets them stretch out their length and get the resistance they need to exercise their muscles and tendons. The wide base keeps it really stable for them.
