I am seriously going to make one of these!  We just got a kitten a few weeks ago, and she is an unholy scratching machine a little exhuberant with the nails!  I wanna know how going like this *makes motion like an unholy scratching machine a cat scratching a couch* can get their nails needle-pointy and razor-sharp!  This evil little furball little sweetums can really draw blood when she wants to!  hahahahahaaa!

This is excellent! Thank you. My kitties are all indoor/outdoor Country kitties and use trees, but my Mom's kitten will (hopefully) Love this! He is pretty radical little guy, (Red Point Siamese) (rips the heads off his stuffed toy animals) so I think I might put a bit of hot glue here and there as I make it to keep it sturdier. That would also help hold it together as you made it. I enjoyed all the additional tid bits from all the replies. I'll make one that is square because I think my Mom could better find a place to put it, and I really liked the idea of putting a fabric edging around it.   Smiley Ramblin Lady

I used masking tape for mine and it's held pretty well so far. Using the hot glue does sound like a better option for lasting longer though.  Smiley

It's so funny that I clicked on this today. Just yesterday, I bought a kitty scratcher with toy in the 1/2 off Christmas section. Got home and discovered it's just cardboard. I have plenty of cardboard already..lol.

I made one too! It's a lot of work but it was worth it. It's been going for over a year now. Smiley

I used to have the one with the plastic track with the ball in it. The cats would destroy the middle part in no time. It looks like this would last a bit longer. It's funny how you know it's just cardboard but it isn't something we would think of making. Everyone's examples look great!
