Incline Scratcher

The boys got a new scratcher,

An incline scratcher like they had as kittens.

Oh boy,...

Come on mom,...

Scratch, scratch, scratch.

What is in there ?

Did you see this ?

A paper ball on an elastic cord.

Pat, pat,...

Pat, pat, pat,...


Mmm, this is fun.

Oooo, look at that.

Scratch, scratch, scratch.

We're tired of spending so much $$ on scratching pads (which don't last long at our house) and picking up little cardboard bits so we're going to try to make one of these: once we come up with a source for suitable sisal sheet-goods.

I'm sure you could construct one in your nice new shop!

Yes, the cardboard doesn't last long, and the bits are an added mess. Let us know if/when you find a source of sisal sheet-goods.

The boy have used their sisal scratching post every day for years and it still looks new.

Hi there bengal's and humans!

I was actually looking at making my own cat scratcher recently too, and was searching for sisal. I found one source, but it's kind of a grab bag affair. it's the left over bits from a rug manufacturer.

Shy of buying bulk, the only other source of woven sisal fabric I've found is some places that will do a custom sisal rug for you, but that gets remarkably expensive very fast.

Anyhow, good luck with any future projects and have a happy new year!
