It's a scratching post that isn't boring!

It stands ~33 inches tall (it's a full sized mannequin leg)and is wrapped in 1/4 inch unoiled sisal rope with faux pink and white rabbit fur topper and a springy pom-pom ball to boot. The wooden base has four rubber square grippers that help steady the leg on smooth surfaces. Sprayed with infused cat nip oil to entice kitty to explore.

The cats in the photos are for size-reference. The small black kitten (Steve French( was 2 & 1/2lbs and 9wks old at the time of the photo. The orange cat (Maya) was 12lbs and 10 years old and the salt & pepper cat (Sneaky) was around 13lbs. Per my store policy, Maya, Sneaky and Steve French were not permitted around the scratching post outside these photographs being taken. Your cat scratching post will arrive clean and ready for your own cat to claim as its own!

REMOVABLES:
The leg's anklet is an actual cat collar with two charms on it (a pink paw and a rhinestone enamal circle that says "Diva" in the middle) and 8 pink rhinestones along the collar itself. The ribbon wrapped around the foot is sheer unwired pink 1 inch ribbon and has a row of white rhinestones in the center of the ~3 foot section. Both collar and ribbon are removable.

LEG PHYSICS (cat weight v leg height):
The leg weighs just under 6lbs and has a base of 12" by 9". The leg itself is hollow, the weight comes from the base, top and all the rope.

I have one I made for my own kitties with a slightly smaller base (10"x9"). Of the many kitties who are fond of the leg, the heaviest cat weighs 18lbs and the smallest would be any number of the shelter-fosters from a few ounces on up to ~3lbs. In my own personal "cat v leg" experience, the adults don't want to climb it, they just use it as a place to stretch and scratch. The kittens however will scale the thing like it's a measly little hill in their path of wildness! It does well with even several kittens (under 3lbs) on (or on top) it, but I'm not sure it would do well with adult cats trying to climb it purely from a physics point of view (height of the leg, width of the base v. weight of the cat). It would depend on your felines' temperament and if they would want to scale it or just use it like a scratching post. It WILL tip over if an adult cat over 10lbs tries to climb it, especially with a running start.

Adding a heavier base underneath is an option, but the price would go about ~$30. The additional base would be covered in the same fur as the top and would measure ~18"x1"x18". CONVO me for more info/options and I can edit this listing to reflect any changes you'd like to make. If the additional base is chosen and you'd rather have a different fabric (or carpet!) on the base, I can do that too for no additional charge.
