As far as I’m concerned, there’s no such thing as too many scratchers. Unless your cat has a distinct preference, it’s important to offer a variety of different substrates as well as orientations. Some cats prefer sisal, others carpet. Some like to scratch vertically, some horizontally, and some, at an incline. Some like to scratch in all of these ways! The Scratch Ladder™’s innovative design offers cats a variety of scratching surfaces to meet all these needs.

ScratchLadder features

ScratchLadder is a four-rung system designed with interchangeable panels featuring sisal, wood, carpet and cloth to cover various scratching preferences. It is  handmade from high quality materials and produced by Pine Ridge Industries, a division of the Schenectady ARC. The Schenectady ARC is a chapter of The Arc, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The individual panels attach with heavy duty velcro strips, so you can easily move them into different positions, depending on your cat’s preference. Panels can be purchased separately.

153 Comments on Giveaway: ScratchLadder Scratching System

  1. My cat would love this! She only will scratch 2 things, one being her scratching posts, which is great, but she also has a thing for scratching at carpet so I really need something like this! Perfect for her!

  2. One prefers fabric and two prefer sisal. Although they all occasionally indulge in pulling themselves along the bottom of the sofa 🙂

  3. We have a cat tree so they use the rope wrapped posts on that. I would love to introduce new surfaces to them.

  4. I’ve got 4 cats, and they all have different preferences. Our youngest is the smartest because she claws on the cat tower we have. Our oldest is sneaky, she will claw mattresses and back of chairs. Our only make does his outside, thank goodness! And another likes to claw the couch, grrr.

    • My girls have a cat tree. My little one is great st using it my older one needs a new scratching idea to get her attention

  5. My cat prefers dense fabrics and short/low pile carpets (like most area rugs). We bought some carpet scraps and put them on some scrap wood for her… she likes it, but it is not pretty and and she definitely likes to change it up and scratch other things here and there! She definitely needs all the scratching surfaces she can get… she has at least 6 claws on all of her paws!

  6. We have multiple cats. Some of them love cardboard, some of them love the carpet, and some of them love wood.

  7. My two seem to like everything to scratch on- we have sisal, cardboard and a carpeted tree. This ladder would provide all of the surfaces in one place- brilliant!

    • My cats like flat, or vertical sisal scratching posts, whether upright or knocked over like a ramp, flat and ramp-style cardboard scratchers, carpet, or carpeted cat towers and the carpeted base of their vertical sisal scratcher, a flat woven sisal scratch mat sewn into a tough poofy fabric border, which also doubles as a great place to crash, bedskirts, bed spreads, mattresses, blankets, pillows, furniture covers, furniture, walls, doors, although the last two are not normally intentionally destructive but for the sole purpose of waking us up, getting our attention, for food, play, cuddle time, or begging to play in the bathroom sink, bath tub, and, if I don’t close the lid, they’ve tried to play with the toilet water, but usually end up falling in.

  8. My cat seems to love many different textures. She has liked the rug and cardboard scratchers we have given her so I think she would love this.

    • Ok, this is weird. I already commented and submitted the comment, it wants me to do it again, and as far as I can see, it is not providing me any way to click through to the next step.

  9. i love this scratching post, all of the different surfaces. she likes carpet, which i have rugs, and cardboard, the ruff cardboard surfaces.

  10. My cat will scratch everything, so we found that giving her a piece of foam mat that you use for exercising seems to curb her need to scratch the furniture and door frames.

    • My cats prefer my furniture as my living room set and my box springs 🙁 Need something else to deter them away from that.
