Cosmic Catnip Alpine Climb Cat Scratcher is the first economical scratcher that places the scratching block in an inclined position so the cat can climb and stretch as it scratches. Two large holes are cut into the sides, which allows your cat playful access to the toy that hangs inside. Cardboard has long been recommended as an economical scratcher that trains the cat away from rugs and furniture. The corrugated texture provides the feel of nature for the cat. It has holes to allow the cat to sink his claws into the scratcher (instead of your furniture) to clean his claws. Since most people do not have corrugate lying around the house, it quickly becomes the scratching spot. Catnip treated with Cosmic Catnip for your cat's quick appreciation. Beautiful four color all sides graphic raises this standard to new heights of presentation. The scratcher block is reversible, so when your cat scratches halfway through, just flip it over for a fresh surface.
