We have this exact one. I didn't pay that much for it though.

We also have one similar to this one. The one we have stands about 5 ft tall.

We have one of these.

We have three round sisal scratching disks that are about 1 foot in diameter and we have one of those cardboard scratching things too but he really doesn't use that one that much.

Our cat uses all of it he likes the sisal better than the carpet stuff. It didn't take long to train him to use it. Every time I'd see him want to scratch I would take him over to the scratching post and force him to scratch on the post instead. After about 2 days he started doing it on his own. To deter your cat from using the furniture get some double sided sticky tape and put on the spots he likes to claw at the most. You can also get a citrus spray and spray the area. They hate citrus smelling stuff.

We got a couple nice ones off Craigslist, you'll probably have to deal with some whack cat lady but it's worth the effort. :lol:

I got ours second handed too. There's no sense in paying that kind of money for one brand new. I bought the small ones new though because we needed something right away when we got him.

I got my cats to stop scratching furniture by putting tape on it. I took it off a month later and they still didn't scratch it.

My parents' cat stopped scratching their furniture when they bought a rug. He scratches that now.

Better idea... Dress as your couch and scratch your cat back. Karma is a bitch.

If I caught my cat scratching something he shouldn't be scratching I grabbed him by the neck like his momma did and pulled a smelly sock over his head and then tied a rubber band around his neck to hold the sock in his face. Then I'd pick his ass up by the neck again and throw him in the dishwasher and run him in it on a heavy cycle. After a few times of that he wouldn't scratch anything.
