Pros: my kittens love it! cats can sit on top of the post, seems like very durable scratching material, no chemical smell, easy to assemble
Cons: almost not tall enough (my cats seem long though), pricey
great post. my cats stretch and scratch it multiple times a day. i have two energetic 8 month old kittens and they also enjoy climbing it and sitting on the very top of it (dont buy the extra pad that they sell, ive heard it doesnt stay on very well anyways). the material seems very durable and the post itself doesnt rock or move almost at all. very stable and not shaky. my cats seem to be kinda long so they are already stretching beyond the top of the post but i think it is okay, it is at their limit though. overall, worth it!

Pros: Tall and solid
Cons: I haven't found any
This post works for my largest cat all the way down to my petite little cat who doesn't even have her front claws. The four cats in my house use this daily and after almost 2 years it's still in really good shape. I didn't get a pad for the top, but the boys are always jumping on top of it and hanging out. Even when they are playing with it, running through the room, and launching from it, it remains upright and just moves a few inches across the floor.

Pros: tall; durable; good quality
Many scratching posts are simply too small for a full-grown adult cat.  This one is about 32 inches high, which allows for our two kitties to get a good back stretch.

The scratching post is also very durable and has a wide, stable base.  It is covered in sisal rather than carpet, which I like -- I don't want to train the kitties to scratch our carpeted floors!

We've had the scratching post for almost a year now (we had to donate our old one when we moved from the U.S. West Coast to the East Coast... it was cheaper to replace it than to ship it), and it's holding up great.  We are sure it will last at least several years. :)

The design of the topper I mentioned deserves a mention: the cushion on it is attached with small velcro tabs to allow for removal and washing. However, the adhesive on the pads is complete garbage, causing three of them to come loose in the first day of use. Replacing them with DIY pads with stronger adhesive or using a staple gun to fix them in place is advised.
 
We're on our second one of these -- still have the first, though it's kind of tatty.  These are simply THE BEST scratching posts IMHO.  They are full size for even the biggest, tallest adult domestic cats, and they're tough.  Also, they're really good-looking in modern decor or any other kind.  The best value for the money.  Don't miss out on getting one of these for your very deserving cats!

Did it take your cats a long time to take to it? Mine seems completely uninterested... but she doesnt like cardboard, or sisal rope... Not sure what else to try.
