GREAT Scratching Post - Kitten Loves it!

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!

Approved by 20+ picky cats; holds-up extremely well

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.

Best Scratching Post!

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!

Love calls the post

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.

So gorgeous

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.
