Tried and tested, the wave scratching post is a favourite at our home! I think we currently have 2-3. I have yet to meet a cat who doesn't like this - it offers a horizontal scratching surface that really appeals to cats.
It’s a necessary accessory – but also a removable toy with a spring under it. If you have kittens in the house, this is a perfect first scratcher – they love playing on, under, over it. Three litters of foster kittens in our home can attest to it - plus our own 3 cats. They are sturdy last quite long (until claws rip the natural scratching surface to shreds). The interesting thing is that both cats and kittens like sleeping on it too. Rated 5 Paws – great for home use (try rubbing a bit of catnip on it), effective, and long lasting
There are other cheaper brands, but I don't know how durable they are.
