| Natural Scratch White Cedar
This is the original Natural Scratch that I developed
20 years ago. Many thousands have been sold,
and I am happy they have pleased cats and humans and
saved claws. Although the materials used for Natural Scratch
products appeal to cats, our feline friends have minds of their
own and often require training. Click for more information
on the easy-to-use training system that comes with every
Natural Scratch product.
Note: White cedar posts often have cracks and vary in
color from light yellow to medium brown.
Our goal with Natural Scratch is to make it the way cats
like it, as natural as possible, so we use rough-sawn,
untreated, and unkilned northern white cedar. Cracks
such as the one above are not unusual because white
cedar is so soft and stringy (characteristics that
make it ideal for scratching!). Some owners press treats
into the cracks to encourage and reinforce scratching.
As is the case above, we do our best to position the Natural
Scratch trademark on the side least likely to crack.

Large And Solid Red Cedar Bases For Stability
Quality, half-notch, dado-cut pieces fit together easily and
solidly. Base pieces are 3/4" deep, 4.5" wide, and
32" long, giving Natural Scratch an effective footprint 22"
square. Two screws hold the post solidly to the base.
Some simple assembly is required.
The Antenna is a stretchy bungee-cord string toy that
cats love to play with. When you scratch the Antenna in the
Mouse Hole, cats go wild trying to get at it and this helps
get them clawing Natural Scratch. The Reward Nest is for
catnip and kitty treats--excellent ways to reinforce
good scratching behavior.
