Tired of our cat scratching the ever loving hell out of our couch, my wife and I purchased this fine looking cat scratching post/condo type thing as a hopeful distraction. We brought it home, set it up and waited with bated breath for our cat to transfer her love of scratching the crap out of things from our couch to this beauty of a scratching post. We were delirious with thoughts of how cute our cat would look sleeping inside of one of the two cat cubby-holes. We waited and we waited and we waited.
Apparently our cat has as much interest in this cat scratching thing as she does in learning science. For her, this thing is the opposite of jumping on my face at 3AM while I’m fast asleep. There’s just no fun in it for her.
The only thing this scratching post/condo/contraption has done is taught us a few things about our cat:
1) Our cat is a jerk.
2) Our cat doesn’t appreciate the things we do for her.
3) Our cat doesn’t understand that if this were human sized and located in this same neighbourhood, it would be worth about $750k.
4) Our cat will only destroy things that should not be destroyed (our couch).
Maybe your cat could appreciate a thing such as the nameless cat post pictured below. Maybe your cat is not a jerk like ours is (I doubt it, your cat IS a CAT after all). Maybe, at the very least, your cat won’t avoid this thing like it’s made out of water and angry dogs. If your cat is such a cat, then hit me up with an email and I’ll gladly GIVE you this cat contraption. We just want it out of the house, since it’s just another sad reminder for how little respect our cat has for the pet/owner relationship.
As a bonus, I’ll toss in that springy ball on a pole type of thing you can see sitting on top of the condo thing in the photo. Apparently swatting that is not nearly as enjoyable as swatting our feet while we try to sleep.
Although we’ve had this thing for 6 months, it has sadly not been used by the cat.
