The Pioneer Pet SmartCat The Ultimate Scratching Post is a must have for any home with a furry feline. The post is made from durable and fibrous sisal; a material that naturally inspires scratching. The post stands at 32 inches tall, so it encourages cats to stretch vertically, working their muscles as well as their claws and providing the mental and physical stimulation a cat needs.  The post comes in a neutral color to fit in with any décor and has a wide, sturdy base to ensure that the post stays upright regardless of how energetic the cat gets.
