When it comes to appropriately named businesses, Kool Kitty Toys’ product definitely lives up to its brand name! This 5 foot high scratching post is one of the most unique cat products I’ve seen in quite some time. Allegra and Ruby were excited to get to test it.

Allegra was a bit intimidated by the sheer size of this post, but she warmed up very quickly. Ruby went to explore immediately, and gave the thick sisal covering a quick scratch of approval. Once they had a chance to get used to this new piece of furniture, I plugged it in. The effect of the bright LED lights is amazing! The sensor, which is located on the front of the scratcher below the platform is super sensitive. The lights will come on even if the cats aren’t right in front of it, which makes for a fun surprise effect for everyone.

The posts are extremely well made. Each post is handmade with premium materials. The thick sisal makes for a fantastic scratching surface, and both sisal areas are tall enough to give cats a chance to really stretch while they’re scratching.


Ruby likes to hang out on the platform and survey the world. Allegra has appointed this as one of her favorite scratchers in our home, it gets more use than any of the other sisal scratchers. I love the design and the light effects – it’s  a  fun and functional piece of furniture that makes all three of us happy.

This is a catification win: a combination of quality, function and design in a serious piece of cat furniture that will last for a long time.

5 Comments on Review: Kool Kitty Toys Cat Post With Motion Sensor Lighting

  1. What a nice scratcher. Even setting aside the lights, it is tall, sturdy yet not clunky – the footprint is small for a tall post that is large enough to accommodate – ahem – portly kitties.

  2. THAT is SUPER COOL!! I have never seen anything like it! Question, did you have to put it together? I have had to build all of my scratchers, this looks like it would be a formidable challenge if you had to assemble it.
