*Note: Though the image here does not show it, this scratcher has a pouch on the bottom of it like the Reversible version does!
While my 2 boys are greatly interested in this hanging scratcher, it's only because it's designed with what I can only assume is a "Catnip Pouch" on the bottom where it comes pre-packed with a bag of Catnip.
Now this is an issue because the pouch is made of thin material, lined with a poly batting, and in the few hours it's been hanging up, my boys have completely destroyed it. I removed the Catnip bag before hanging it up, of course, and did not put any in or on the scratcher, but they smell it on the pouch enough to go crazy over it. I don't think I've seen them actually scratch on the thing once, but they've ripped the pouch front open and tore out the batting inside, to the point that I'm now going to have to cut it off just so that I won't worry about them eating any of it.
A truly terrible design that I really can't understand at all. No one would leave the Catnip bag in there, where it is easily accessible by even the smallest of cats, and without anything in it, the pouch is literally useless.
I would not suggest buying this.

My 6mo old kitten shows little interest in this item. She is more active with a standard scratching post.
