I ordered this post perch to fit on top of the SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post and it does fit very nicely. It's easy to attach and the base of it is sturdy. The thing I didn't like about it is that it's kind of small, about 12 x 14 inches. That's not very big for a large cat. The other thing that I thought could have been improved was the thickness of the cushion. It was only about 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. I thought for the price that they could have made something a little thicker and more cushy. It has little straps that attach it to the bottom wood platform, but the platform is a finished wood and slippery, so the mat slides a little when a cat jumps up on it. We solved that by cutting a piece of that rubber shelf liner stuff like this 48 each: Jmk Rubber Shelf Liner (03055) that you can cut to size and put it between the top of the perch and the cushion. It keeps it from moving around. (Also a great way to keep chair cushions in place on wooden chairs.)

The cats don't seem to use this perch thing very much but they do love the scratching post. If I buy another scratching post I'll skip this accessory.

The SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post is expensive, but it's a great product. It's sturdy, tall enough for the cat to get a good stretch, and will help to save your furniture from your cat's desire to hone his claws. My cats love it, and the decision to enhance the product with the SmartCat Perch made it even more attractive for the cats. They love to sit on the perch and watch the action in the kitchen at mealtime. The pad attaches to the very slick surface of the perch. It fastens by folding four velcro straps sewn to the four corners to the underside of the perch where four circular velcro attachments are glued. Unfortunately the underside of the perch is also slick and the glued attachments do not adhere well. When the cats climb the post they use the pad to pull themselves onto the perch. The velcro attachments on the underside of the perch will not hold up to this type of horizontal force and will become unglued. All four detached within the first week. I glued them back with super glue but had to scrape the original glue from the back of each attachment to get the super glue to hold. It's working for now, but I'm disappointed that a product this expensive (it should be included with the post IMO) has such a terrible design defect.

I run a non-profit cat rescue/hospice and almost all of our cats love the post and the perch. However, the small black velcro dots they supply to fasten the perch to the post are worthless. Cut strips of real velcro with good adhesive backing on it and the perch will not slide or fall off.

I have a suggestion for the manufacturer of this product. Cover the top of the post in the same material that the entire post is made of (sisal), so that cats can naturally climb and pull themselves to the top. My cats just keep trying and sliding and falling off. This change in design would solve the problem of the "perch" design, and would boost your product reviews.

Ours is a one cat house. We first bought the ultimate cat scratching post because our cat, Simba used to go at my husbands floor standing speakers to get a good stretch and scratch. We got the scratching post, put it near the speaker, and Simba willingly used the scratching post instead.

Very often we saw Simba jump on top of the scratching post and try to sit there. He did manage, but looked terribly uncomfortable. Imagine a 12 lb cat balanced on a 6 inch square. So, we got him the perch. At first he just wouldn't jump on. If we kept him on top of it, he would sit there for a few minutes and jump off.

Now the thing about this perch is that it is bean shaped. I mean a 2D bean, like a bean would look if cut in cross section. So we figured that Simba could probably jump if we kept it in such a way that the concave end was facing him, and the convex end facing the wall. It worked! Simba jumped on, but unfortunately the perch slid of and in a moment worth of America's funniest home videos, Simba slid off with the perch landing in a noisy mess on the floor.

He wasn't hurt. Just irritated.

We were terrified he would go after the speakers again, but he loves the scratching post and so keeps going back to it. We replaced the perch on top, more because we really don't know what to do with it. We threw the box away, so we cannot return it.

In short... the perch seems like a good idea, but a cautious cat might not take to it very easily. Other reviewers are right about the Velcro, which is starting to come off in our case too... and not by wear and tear... just by standing around!
The wood is good quality for the price and product it is intended for... but perhaps, they need to reconsider the design once again.

I read the other reviews before I purchased the Smartcat perch. I've had it about a week now. One reviewer suggested using a piece of rug pad to keep the perch pad from sliding around. I had an extra piece of waffle-like rubbery rug pad and cut it to the shape of the perch. It does prevent the pad from sliding around. The small velcro circles have started to fall off, as the other reviews warned. I am replacing the circles with velcro I had bought for a previous project. I cut the velcro pieces to cover an area larger than the circles, and glued them on with Gorilla glue. I am confident that it will be a permanent fix. The clips that keep the perch from sliding off the scratching post are small and probably will break in the future. It should be easy to find some kind of replacement at a hardware store if that happens.

The additional modifications that need to be made to the perch are annoying and shouldn't be necessary. The product needs to be better designed and the quality needs to be improved. With that said, my 13.5 lb cat loves to sit (not lay) on the perch and watch what is going on in the room. The perch is too small for him to lay down on it.

July 16, 2013: As I expected, the plastic clips that are supposed to keep the perch from sliding off the scratching post broke and the perch slid off. At the hardware store, I bought a package of 3/4" (1.9 cm) metal corner braces. I carefully flattened two of the braces with a hammer and attached one to each clip hole using the screws that came with the perch. There are now two 1.5" metal braces that should keep the perch on the post without breaking. The hardware store also had plastic window screen clips that may have worked, but I figured they would eventually break too, so I didn't use them.

My 13.5 lb cat still loves to sit on it and my 10 lb cat sleeps on it all the time.
