The Felix Katnip Tree Company Tall Cat Scratching Post is a handmade cat scratching post that is tall enough for cats to use as a perch or window seat, as well as an inviting scratching surface. They are 28 inches tall and weigh about 10 lbs- they are very sturdy. These scratching posts are made to order and come with a few different options for the type of wood and the style. We reviewed the birch wood, which is made with real wood and finished with linseed oil (which I love the smell of). The scratching surface is made from hemp sisal, which holds up very well even though cats love scratching it so much. Hemp sisal is also a sustainable and biodegradable product, which I like because I like eco-friendly cat products. Sisal is a great alternative to carpet for covering scratching posts because carpet is synthetic and it also teaches your kitty that carpet is a scratching surface, which you obviously don’t want to do.
This Tall Cat Scratch Post comes in three pieces- the base, the post, and the top perch. It is very easy to assemble with just a couple of screws and a screwdriver, and the holes are already drilled for you. Felix Katnip Tree Company makes these scratching posts in the USA, which I also like. I do like products that are made in other countries, but it is nice to support American businesses and small business owners.
