Art of Paws (Day 5 of 12 Days of Giveaways)


Art of Paws is our featured company for Day 5 of 12 Days of Giveaways. They may sound familiar to you – that’s because I’ve featured them on the blog before! For today’s review, we received the Extra Tall Scratching Post and Perch from Art of Paws.

Art of Paws Disclosure

Assembling the Scratching Post and Perch

Let’s start at the beginning. The Art of Paws scratching post arrives in a tightly packed box and it does require assembly. No big deal! Here are the pieces all laid out. (Note that all tools required for assembly are included.)

Woodrow: Okay, Mama. Looks like all of the pieces are here…

Woodrow: Now, get to building this for me!

On the Art of Paws website, it says that the assembly record is just under eight minutes. I wish I had timed myself because I’m pretty sure I was around the 5-minute mark. I may have set a world record! Needless to say, assembly was very quick and easy. It only takes one human to assemble the scratching post – but at least two cats to snoopervise, which Woodrow and Sophie stepped up to do.

Sophie: Good job, Mama. That was so fast that I didn’t even have time to offer any advice.

Sophie Tries Out the Perch

Mama: Ta da! What do you think, Sophie? Hop up!

Sophie: Whoa, it’s so tall! I’m as tall as a human now!

Sophie: I can see for miles from up here, Mama! Why didn’t you tell me being tall was so great?

Woodrow Tests Out the Scratching Post

Woodrow: Mama, I can stretch all the way up!

Woodrow: I love you, scratching post. Here, I give you kissy.

Woodrow is our tallest cat and the height of this scratching post is perfect for him – hence the name Extra Tall Scratching Post and Perch.

The base is also heavy enough that the scratching post doesn’t wobble when scratched or when the cats jump down from the perch. I was actually pretty surprised when the box arrived and it was so heavy! Note that one adult should be able to lift it without help.

All five cats use the scratching post every day! And one time, I caught Harley climbing up the post using all four of his legs. I ran to get my camera and of course he jumped down. Woodrow and Sophie use the perch regularly. But I have yet to see Dexter, Olive or Harley on top of it.

About the Extra Tall Scratching Post and Perch

The Extra Tall Scratching Post and Perch from Art of Paws is quite stylish and would look good in any home. Features include:

  • Made with sisal fabric, which lasts longer than sisal rope.
  • Extra tall scratching post measures 35.5 inches (90 cm) in height, which allows your cat to fully extend while scratching.
  • Cushioned perch on top of the post. The cushion pad itself is removable for easy cleaning.
  • Easy assembly! (Remember my world record of 5 minutes.)

The scratching post is available to order from the Art of Paws website or Amazon (with Prime shipping available). Currently listed at $59.97, we have a discount code for 10% off (details below) that’s good directly on the Art of Paws website.

  1. That’s actually a beautiful scratcher post – nice design. Teddy uses his cat tree for scratching which has sisal posts throughout the design but this one is a stand alone and I’d prefer him to have a scratching post on our main floor (his tree is in the basement). Congratulations on your QUICK assembly time too!

    Hugs, Pam

  2. That is a very smart looking scratching post, and I agree that the extra height is good for a really good stretch and scratch.
    Of course you wouldn’t have been able to assemble it so speedily without the help of Woodrow and Sophie.

  3. OMC that looks amazing with the painting on the wall. What an honour to sit straight up there at first, Sophie :D We’ve heard you, Woodrow…MOL :D Pawkisses for Good Luck Pawkisses to everyone 🐾😽💞

  4. Very stylish! Looks like they would easily match any decor! But who am I kidding, cats don’t care! Looks very functional! The height for stretching to scratch looks purrfect! And if the basement is weighted, it is a meowvelous perch for cattv!

  5. my extra-tall kitty would love this. and so would the other four. to echo a couple of people above – it IS stylish, which can be a tough feat for basic scratchers, and it looks so efficient/functional. i think cats would really be drawn to this one. plus it doesn’t look wimpy/easy to topple. thanks for the chance to win. –suz in ohio

  6. Mickey is more of a vertical scratcher than Rufus. He would love this tall scratcher. I like the deep rich color too.
    Thanks for having this series of great give aways!
    xxoo

  7. You would make a grr-eat scratchy post tester for Art of Paws, Woodrow! Mom and Dad made me a scratchy tree when they first adopted me. It doesn’t have a pad, though, it’s a bit tipsy, and the sisal rope is a little worn down by my daily use. Maybe my next one will be an Art of Paws post. Tee hee hee.

  8. 3 of ours love the scratching posts. Our youngest doesn’t use it properly just yet but she will figure it out one day!

  9. i dont have any cats but would love this for safe haven for cats. i even think my dogs would like this except they cant jump that high.

  10. we do have a scratching post but only one and 4 cats..they all steal each others spot so a second one would be amazing

  11. I’m entering for my sister in law’s cats, and I’m not sure if they use a scratching post currently. I think they would love it, though!

  12. My sweet Chloe needs another scratching post. Her current one is getting old and in disrepair so she is looking for other places to scratch, like furniture… rugs… you get the idea. So a new one that would appeal to her would be awesome.

  13. My cats have a floor scratcher they use and enjoy. They would really love this one though :) I love that it has a perch too <3

  14. Yes. Murphy is using a scratch bar I have hanging from a door. I plan on getting him a proper scratching post eventually

  15. I love this post!! Our young dog did a number on our cat’s favorite post and it’s no longer available. I think that my cats would like this one even more!

  16. Even though I keep my cats’ claws trimmed, they do like to claw at things – especially the younger cat, Kotoha. She has been scratching on the posts of the cat tree, but the rope wrapping is really getting worn and she could use something new. This would be perfect as she could also sit on top to look out the window (lots of birds and squirrels around our house lately).
