I have the "as-seen-on-TV" scratchers which are impossible to get reasonably priced refills for, but I have to say they are better overall than this product which I also purchased for my multi-cat household. Did they like it at first? Yes, when it was loaded with catnip and a novelty...Even my big fat old laziest cat had fun with it! But what happens, unfortunately, at least here, is that the cats pull out the whole refill, and usually then pull out the center piece, which the makes it hard to fit back into the plastic holder. I rarely see anyone scratching or playing with it anymore.
I feel this one makes more of a mess than the TV one, as I find strands of the paper all over the place, and I don't think it really does anything for their nails, as my legs and furniture can attest to.
But every cat is different, as cat people well know, so yours might love it. I would suggest you be prepared to put a lot of "nippers" out as an attraction, though...Although not all cats will respond to catnip anyway unless they are genetically inclined to do so!
