Product Description

It is very important for a cat to have a durable scratching post. Cats need a scratching post to help them tone their muscles, to remove old nail sheaths from their claws and to help relieve stress. The Bootsie's Scratcher is made from woven sisal which is much more durable than wound sisal. This means that you will get much more use out of your scratching post.

My cat loves this scratching post.
Annie Waits
There are good size rubber feet that keep the scratcher in place on the floor and there is a recessed hole to use with the provided hardware for wall mounting.
N. Vance
It feels sturdy and seems like it will last a long time.

There are a lot of reasons to love Bootsie's Combination Scratcher. My top 3 reasons are that it's reasonably priced, that it doesn't take up any floor space when wall-mounted, and that it accomodates my large cats better than any other scratcher out there.

Most of our cats are big. Not necessarily fat, but enough taller and longer than your average cat that most scratching posts just don't accomodate their scratching needs. There are a few "extra tall" scratchers out there. About 3 years ago we ordered "The Ultimate Scratching Post", also made by SmartCat, using Fresh Step Paw Points. At 32" tall, it was the tallest thing we could find at the time, and it looked better than most scratches too. It's held up well, but it has its drawbacks. At 32" tall and with a 16" x 16" base, the "Ultimate" scratcher is a serious piece of furniture that takes up a good deal of floor space and doesn't work in just any room. At ~$50 each, buying "Ultimate" scratchers for more than 1 room would be kind of expensive anyway. And as large as it is, the "Ultimate" scratcher still isn't quite "Ultimate" enough for my big boys. I often see them with their paws extended over the top of the "Ultimate" scratcher, wishing it was just a little taller, and every once in a while one of them takes a running, flying leap onto the top of it, and that 16" x 16" base doesn't stand a chance. It topples anyway.

If this sounds familiar, try the Bootsie Combination Scratcher! When I purchased ours, I caught them on sale for just $15 each. Even at $25, they're still a lot cheaper than most large scratchers and only half the cost of the "Ultimate" scratcher. The beauty of the Bootsie scratcher is that you can mount it just as high up on the wall as you need.

I have four cats and so far I've seen three of them scratching away at this thing almost immediately after I got it last week. It seems to be pretty resilient as well. Well worth the purchase!

This cat scratcher is really well made. It's fairly heavy and grips the floor well with its rubber 'feet'. I tempted the cats into using it by sprinkling some catnip on the sisal scratching area. This unit is much more substantial, and less messy, than the corrigated cardboard cat scratching products that are out there.

my cats love it! well worth the money! I have tried all kinds of cat-scratching pads over the years--cardboard, carpet, sissel rope, and all make-shift variations of these. This is so much better!
cats love it--either lying down horizontal, or mounted to wall vertically. its sturdy, the sissel doesn't come off and make a mess, its like a tight woven sissel carpet. its easy to mount to the wall.
love it!

Worth every penny - this thing never wears out. The only reason we got this last one as a replacement was because our cat puked on the previous one. You can't change the cloth so we had to get a new one. Other than that, top notch product.

I would definitely give this product a 5 star rating if I could get my cat to use it for its intended purpose. It is well made, has some heft to it and has a thick sisal wrapping around the board. In theory it is a great idea.

I have tried putting dried catnip on it; spraying it with catnip spray; orienting it both horzontally and vertically near areas she likes to scratch; incorporating it into play by shining a laser light on it or dragging a play item over it.

My cat, though, seems to prefer some area rugs. At least I have gotten her away from scratching furniture through positive reinforcement. I 'gave' her the area rugs, as she chose old ones that I really don't care too much about. You have to pick your battles carefully with felines!

She does seem to like the cat tree that I purchased for her, and she will occasionally scratch on the tree's sisal columns. Why she won't scratch on the board covered with a similar material remains a mystery to me. I will keep trying to get her to use it, and maybe one day she'll cave in!

My cat enjoys using this. I have it a few feet from his food bowl. He always has to use the scratcher before he eats.

My cat was scratching the corner of my new wool area rug and pulling out tufts of yarn (even though he and his buddy have a cat tree with sisal posts that goes almost to the ceiling...). I placed this scratcher on the rug in that corner, sprayed it with catnip spray, sprinkled it with a little dry catnip, and we were off and running pretty much immediately. They both love it, and I am happy because my rug is no longer being damaged. This product is sturdy and looks nice, too. It was totally worth the cost- way cheaper than a new rug!
