MaxScratch-scratching post

When it comes to scratching posts, more is better. They are one of the most important pieces of cat furniture, and every cat household should have at least one in every room. In addition to providing a natural outlet for your cat’s need to scratch, they can also prevent a variety of behavioral problems. The Hauspanther MaxScratch is big enough not just for scratching, but also for climbing and perching.

This oversized cat scatcher is wrapped with natural jute rope, creating a durable and attractive scratching surface. A sturdy base keeps the post from tipping over. The built-in perch on top gives kitty a perfect lookout spot.

MaxScratch Features

  • Durable natural jute rope scratching surface
  • 29″ tall for extra stretch when scratching
  • 9″ diameter perch with non-slip pad on top
  • Sturdy 19″ square base prevents tipping
  • Non-slip feet on bottom protect floors & keep scratcher from sliding
  • Scratching column flips over for extended use
  • Includes extra replacement perch pad
  • Minimal assembly required, all tools included

Bonus Feature

The scratching column can be flipped over for extended use! Simply remove the top and the base, flip the column over and reassemble. If your cat scratches in just one place on the column, no problem! Simply flip it over and let kitty keep scratching!

The MaxScratch comes in white and espresso.


My take on the MaxScratch

The scratcher was very easy to put together. It’s very heavy and there is no way even the biggest and most enthusiastic cat could topple this one over. Unlike other scratchers as tall as this one, the perch on top is actually big enough for perching.

Allegra and Ruby’s take on the MaxScratch

Allegra was initially a little intimidated by the sheer size of this scratcher. Ruby had no such fears – within seconds of me putting it in the living room, she climbed it and perched on the top. I think she would have been very happy with placement in the center of the room so she would have a 360º view of her territory, but I decided that since I live here, too, it was going to go closer to a wall.


This fantastic scratcher is not your every day scratching post. This is a gorgeous piece that will look beautiful in your living space and make your cats happy.
