Felix Katnip Tree Company Tall Cat Scratching Post Product Review

Many months ago we were introduced to the Felix Katnip Tree Company when they reached out to us to see if we would be interested in reviewing their horizontal scratching post.  We did and loved it – and it’s still a staple in our house – great for kitties who like to scratch horizontally or on stairs (for example).  You can read our Felix Katnip Tree Company Horizontal Scratching Beam review here.

I wanted to find a taller scratching post for readers who were looking for such a thing.  It is hard for me to tell readers about products that I have not personally had experience with (unless numerous readers have told me how incredible a product is).  I knew Felix Katnip Tree Company made quality products, so I asked them if they would be game to send us one of their Tall Cat Scratching Posts for review.  Lucky us, they were game and we received one to review over 5 weeks ago.

How It Arrives

It comes in three pieces – the bottom, the post and the top.  And they supply the screws you’ll need to put it together.  The holes for the screws are pre-drilled, so all you need is a screwdriver to put them all together.  It took me very little time to do that – as you can see in the arrival video of the product below.  Before I had the top secured on, the cats wanted to scratch away.  And they wanted to jump on the top platform.

Additional Perks


The top of this scratching post is a great cat perch – so if you have windows in your home that are about 28″ off the floor, you could stick this in front of them for a cat perch.


It is also a great place to put a Yeowww! Catnip Banana or other toys, so they have to stretch up and get it.

    Really nice quality cat scratchers with good quality sisal that lasts for a long time. Like the wide base that makes it very stable as they scratch and lean on it. ♥♥♥

  2. Hi Jenny, Loved both of the Felix Catnip Tree Company product’s do you know if they deliver to Australia.

    How long does it take you get Charlie and Trigg to do what you want in the videos?

    1. Hi Vicky, I am not sure if they deliver to Australia – I will check, but I always include the link to the manufacturer in all of my review posts, so you can always reach out directly too, if you’d prefer. And reviews like this one are a lot more difficult for me to get on camera because they only scratch for 1-2 seconds and even if I have my phone on me, I usually can’t get it out and open fast enough to record. It’s a real challenge. But they did and do use the scratcher every day, several times a day.

  3. Another wonderful product review, Jenny! Great information and lurve, lurve, lurve the videos (as usual)! Seeing Charlie & Chiggy help you in the videos is ALWAYS such a delight! 🙂 <3

    This is really a beautifully made, high quality scratching post! It looks so beautiful and sturdy! (I lurve that linseed oil smell, too.) And the birchwood is so pretty (it's so neutral that it would fit into any design style of any home)!

    Miss PSB lurves her big Mondo Deluxe Cat Sisal Scratching Post (vertical scratcher from Purrfect Post), her steps (carpet covered which sit next to her big scratching post for easy access in and out of the bed area on top of the scratching post…easy on the joints…got them on Amazon), and her cardboard horizontal cat scratcher (Imperial Post X-Large from Amazon) that I keep in our den.

    Big hugs!

    Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle 🙂 <3
