I buy my cat something called a cat kit. It is something you open up and put on the floor.She can lay on one side and scratch to her heart's content on the other side. She loves it. I one time bought her one of those that stands on the floor and takes up room and is off the ground and a few steps ups and has cool stuff, but, she did not like it so sold it. It took up room and she did not use it. It was a shame, but, that is life.
