Our product design process
Every product begins and ends with consulting our cat behaviorists. We're informed by science to ensure your cat's needs come first.
There's a reason why our stuff looks this good in your home. Our design team is a cat-loving crew who used to create human furniture too.
Driven by innovation, we're constantly looking for ways to solve problems and bring joy. We make sure a piece works, then we make it beautiful.
We hold ourselves to high safety standards through rigorous testing to ensure the well-being of our cat customers, and provide peace of mind for their humans.
Lato has reviews
We love everything we’ve purchase from Tuff + Paw and the Lato Scratching Post is no exception. But most importantly, our kitten loves it too. He uses it as a “launching pad “ as he jumps off and chases his toys! Well made, solid and excellent materials!
The style and design of this beautiful, minimalist piece speaks for itself, but I'd like to add to that conversation by noting just how well it holds-up. It took just about two years of constant love (abuse) by our lovely (but discerning) group of 20+ cats before we needed to replace it. And even then, it was mostly for aesthetic reasons. So I imagine that in a house of 4 cats, this might last a hair beyond their combined 36 lives. Practicality: the weight gives it the heft necessary to let cats grab on, slide up and down, crawl around like a crazed squirrel, and even do pull-ups without moving. It's by far the best scratcher we've had in the 4 years we've been testing them. Of note: Jackson is a supporter of KitTea, America's first established cat cafe. While we did receive a discount on this product, we would gladly pay full-price had we not. We were also not influenced by Jackson's generosity - though we were touched by his support of our mission and 20+ rescue cats.
Most scratching posts look like someone tried to staple a carpet remnant to some plywood, but not this! This post is super solid and well made. Great for heavier cats, since it has a good weight. I will definitely be purchasing from Tuft & Paw again!
My cat loves her new scratch post. She even just sits on it when not scratching. I personally love it because it looks nice in my household but it’s useful to my kitty.
I ordered this for my two kittens after searching around various pet stores and not finding a scratching post that matched the design of my apartment. I don't mind having this out and the cats love to scratch on it (as well as sit on the top). The delivery was seamless, there was nothing to set up! I would not hesitate to recommend this to a friend.
