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.
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.
