This month we're giving away a
SmartyKat Claw Tower
The Claw Tower is a multi-tiered sturdy scratching post. It is packaged in a relatively manageable box, but means it requires a bit of set up before your feline can take to the tower. Starting with the foldable, yet stable, tip-resistant base, you'll screw the Sisal rope-covered pillar first. You'll need to use a flat head screwdriver, or if you have a coin lying around, to screw it in. The first pillar in the tower is great for maintaining your cat's need to keep their nails trim and proves to be an effective outlet. The second pillar, which completes the tower, is comprised of loopy carpet, at an ideal height for your cat to stretch up and reach for the multi-colored ribbon attached to the top.
The tower also comes with three velcro catnip baubles that attach to the carpet pillar.
This sat in our kitchen for about an hour before Clawd realized a new toy had arrived. But when it finally registered, Clawd was attached to the Claw Tower, and was simply unwilling to share this new toy with his adopted sister.
Clawd and I both enjoyed the variety of textures that the totem was comprised of, the fact that the base held up well to Clawd throwing his weight around, and the velcro cat nip patches were a nice incentive to get my cats to stretch all the way to the top of the tower. A heads-up for this product, do not get attached to how cute it is. With any regular use, the carpet and rope on the tower will dangle and fray. There are several spots on this product from Clawd's first and only use. But it was still a winner in our house.
Congratulations to last month's winner, Shirley S. from Fargo, ND.
