SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post Review
All cats need a good scratching post. One that allows them to get their body stretched right out – full length. The SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post is a sturdy and durable cat scratcher that measures 32 inches tall – allowing a cat to stretch vertically.
This is quite important for toning and exercising the cat’s muscles and also to mark its territory (instead of your furniture!)
The SmartCat Scratching Post is constructed with fibrous woven sisal which encourages scratching and also stays looking great for years in spite of hard use by your cat.There is very little wobbling, the sturdiness of the 16 inch square base ensures this.
As it is quite small, this scratching post is a good option for owners who live in small apartments or just have no room for a large cat tree – yet it still gives all the benefits of a bigger model.
It is easily tucked into an inconspicuous corner and obviously it is no trouble at all to move around to different spots. Cats love to have their “things” in new places!
The coloring is nicely toned in neutrals – so it will fit in with and household decor. It is a very simple, quick and straightforward item to assemble – as it only requires putting together using the two screws that are included with the scratching post.
SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post Features:
- Durable post allows cats to get a full stretch
- Made with fibrous, durable sisal that naturally inspires scratching
- 32 inches high to allow cat to stretch vertically
- Assembles easily with 2 included screws
- Sturdy base eliminates tipping and wobbling

5.0 out of 5 stars saves the furniture, says Sandra M. Peterson “Fritz and Casey’s Mom: This is the only scratching post our cat will use. We tried every other type (cardboard, carpet, etc) and even rubbed catnip on them but she wanted to use the edge of the couch. She started using this one as soon as we got it. No more problems
5.0 out of 5 stars Cat loves it says Scottyboy21: I hesitated a bit on buying this because of the price, and I’ve been burned before on scratchers my cat hasn’t had any interest in, but my cat went nuts on this thing and continues to. It’s very durable, and with 4 huge sides I can’t imagine I’ll need to replace it for a few years
