    I got a nice big one from Zooplus and it's great!

    The only thing you need to bear in mind is that cats like to stretch when they scratch so if you have one of them small posts on a base they will soon outgrow it and stop using it.

    Find a nice tall sturdy one which lots of things to hold their interest and you can't go wrong.

    Hi

    I came across this the other day. I know its for kittens but thought it might interest some people and thought might as well put it in this topic :) Not bad for only £9.99. My kitten loves it although it wobbles a little so I've put it in a corner to make it sturdier.

    Buy Brown Scratcher House. at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for .

    I bought the Luxor one from Zooplus. It's a wide one but we split it & have two medium to large ones out of it.

    That's really good value!

    I am considering getting it for my living room as it will match the couch!

    I have Kalven cat trees, they are brilliant, my cats spend most of their time on them. Kalven Cat Scratcher Pagoda range They are much sturdier than some scratchers, with solid wood posts. Makes them very heavy to move around, so I fixed castors to the bottom, so can also give them a change of scenery from time to time LOL! They have this one from Kalven in the lounge, which is the one they spend most time on. Kalven Cat Scratcher model 27B

    Oh... I like that one too. Although the one from Argos is nice a erm... not costly and would also match my living-room! :D

    I bought the cheapest from argos it was £8 and was the best money i have ever spent. She loves it. It has broken as the kids were sitting on it so need to buy her a new one. :)

    Kalven's are quite expensive but are very sturdy and much better for the larger cats like MCs, Weegies or Raggies. I have a Kalven cat climber that is 10 years old and still going strong. I have had others but they haven't lasted as well.

    Only problem with the Argos ones is that they are only really kitten sized. The brown one I posted about would be ok for a small to medium cat for just a stretrch but I dont think it would be good for them to climb. Too small for that.

    We have this one from Zooplu for our 2 and they both love it. I'm not sure of the price at the mo but we got it when there was a really good sale on and only paid about £60 for it. The one thing you do have to bear in mind is that it's a lot bigger than it looks in the pic - the highest shelf is about 5ft high and it's most probably about 6ft wide when spread right out although you can bend it in at the middle joints so it's more L shaped.
