Has anyone tried these corrugated cardboard furniture/scratching posts? They sure are pretty. Sure, they're expensive, but I wonder how long they last being cardboard?

Mom bought a cheap ($35) kitty tree from walmart and it reaches the ceiling. It has lasted us over a year, and we use it all the time to scratch on! smile

Not sure about the furniture, but I love the cardboard scratching box my Mom got for me-and I am not declawed. Only problem we have now is, Dakota, my 8 month old brother-he is chewing it all the time. Seems he likes the paper. Anyone know if kittens go through "teething" like babies do?
The scratch pad , made of cardboard has been heaven for me.

Do you mean the wedge cardboard scratchers?
I drooled all over mine and left it soggy! Not much use for it after that!
I like the sissal posts for my nails and stretching!

Mom bought one of those really heavy outdoor welcome mats made out of rattan or something, has plastic on the back, and she brought it in when it started to snow. She used to use it for her boots, but I think it's the best scratching post ever! Cost less than ten dollars and it serves several purposes.

Have you ever seen a cardboard scratching post, like Cosmic, after a few weeks?

First it looks gross, then it disintegrates.
Triple-ply cardboard may be structurally sound, but soon it will look horrendous.

Here's an idea: Make a plywood box. Cut holes. Cover in fabric. (Match your decor!). Make a smaller one. Ditto. Make a smaller one. Ditto.
