Cat Scratcher

Nate made this cat scratching box for Harris and Flynn the other day. It is just a wooden frame that one of those corrugated cardboard cat scratchers slides into. It is mounted on the wall so that they can stand on their hind legs and scratch a vertical surface, which they love to do. We are supposed to be getting a new couch delivered from West Elm (though it is taking forever), so hopefully this will save the new couch some abuse. Then when the scratcher is thoroughly shredded, we can just slide it out and pop in another one.

Neither cat wanted to cooperate for the photo shoot this morning.

Here is Harris scratching on it before I painted over the mounting screw heads and before I trimmed the box so that it fit perfectly.

And here is Flynn. He was a little more interested in licking the cardboard that scratching it since it had catnip sprinkled on it.
