    Natural Scratch

    Not into DO-IT-YOURSELF projects??
      Check this alternative:

    Natural Scratch For Natural Cats
    This is a solid white cedar scratching post system that features an interactive string toy, kitty treats, catnip, and a seven-page training booklet.
    The post stands 24" high and uses a 14" square base -- this provides stability so that your cat won't have the awful experience of digging in and then having the post fall over!! The white cedar provides the tactile sensations preferred by cats PLUS you're not training your kitty to scratch on the carpets!!
