GREAT. No cardboard debris like others. Still lots of life after 3 months with 5 kittens and 5 cats. Can flip scratching part bottom to top or other side for 4 fresh areas. EARTH FRIENDLY. Also consider sisal, but this is best for full grown cats. Mine love incline style and sisal is half as wide. But I have both on each floor and all are used. Had cats since 10 years old. NEVER HAD FURNITURE ISSUE as long as scratchers provided. Don't declaw. It is painful and mean. With scratchers you will not have to declaw. So what if they have a favorite chair to scratch anyway. Furniture can be replaced. ALL LIFE IS PRECIOUS.
