Here at ScratchyCats, we love coming up with new ideas for alternative cat scratching posts that look attractive in your home rather than an eye sore you'd rather not look at.

New addition to the ScratchyCats family

New addition to the ScratchyCats family

22/10/2016

Martin and Clare are delighted to announce the arrival of our new born baby girl - Serenity Anne Veale, born on October 8th at 13:34 weighing 6lb 1oz.

We had planned a hospital birth at our local midwife led maternity unit, but Serenity had other ideas about the birth and obviously wasn't keen on the hospital idea and so was born at home with the help of 2 midwifes and a trainee. We were extremely lucky with the birth and Clare was able to give birth with no pain relief whatsoever.

Serenity is now 2 weeks old and to us it seems like she's been here forever. Thanks to everyone who has sent their best wishes - it really does mean a lot to us all.

Big Ben Cat Scratching Post

New Product Release - 'Big Ben Cat Scratching Post'

29/04/2016

The handmade Big Ben Cat Scratching Post from ScratchyCats is quite possibly the coolest piece of cat furniture ever made - well we'd like to think so! From the design, the superb detail and top quality finish - this really is a superb piece of British craftsmanship.

To make this Big Ben Scratching Post we first make a scale model of the famous London Clock Tower from scratch using furniture grade particle board. This is the same stuff that most high street kitchen cabinets are made from. Once the model is complete we spend the next 3 hours painstakingly attaching the premium grade 10mm thick chunky sisal rope to the tower.

Each of the platforms is lined with 1 inch thick foam wrapped in luxurious fleece in the colour/pattern of your choice. The foam heats up when the cat sits on it and retains heat making a warm, cosy platform for your cat.

Your cat is wrecking your house! We get that! That's why here at ScratchyCats we've developed a fantastic value for money Maine Coon scratching post that is big and heavy enough to tame even the biggest, strongest cat. The photos really don't do this product justice. It's difficult to show in a photo just how big this is. Check out the measurements! It's huge!

This is an enormous cat scratching post and has been designed for big/heavy cats such as Maine Coons. It's a good option if you can't afford our Original Maine Coon Scratching Post which features a roped base and yet still need a big, strong post purpose built for Main Coons.

ScratchyCats - the story so far

ScratchyCats - 'The story so far'

01/09/2015

Something we get asked time and time again here at ScratchyCats is - "how did you get into building cat scratching posts?" True that it is a bit of a random career direction and certainly an unusual one so how did it all start?

It all started as I was stood in a well known pet superstore (you know the one with the green logo) looking at the cat scratching posts for my rescue cat 'Twinkle'. Twinkle was a young 2 year old cat who had a hard start to life. She was ill-behaved and was literally ripping my house to pieces. Attacking everything from the sofa, to the textured wall paper, leather dining room chairs and even my feet.

ScratchyCats moves to new premises

ScratchyCats moves to new premises

01/08/2015

ScratchyCats has a new home! Our new larger workshop enables us to produce more cat scratching posts whilst retaining the high standards for our products. Our old premises had noise and working hour restrictions which meant that we couldn't use some of the essential tools to make our cat scratching posts at certain times of the day. This restricted the amount of posts that we could hand make each day.

At the new workshop we can work as many hours at it takes to build our scratching posts, and as our products are made to order this is great news for our business and our customers.

ScratchyCats on Dragons' Den

ScratchyCats on Dragons' Den?

01/07/2015

Quite often here at ScratchyCats, people say to us - "wow this is brilliant you should go on Dragons' Den". There's no doubt that our high quality affordable cat scratching posts are among the best available in the UK; if not the best.

That said, ScratchyCats is not a business that would ever get an investment on Dragons' Den and we think that's a positive thing. Let me explain...

Our whole ethos here at ScratchyCats is to design and build quality long lasting products that your cat will use and enjoy.

New Web Site

Welcome to our new web site

01/06/2015

Hurray it's finally here, our shiny new web site! So what's new? Well, we have a new logo which we feel better represents our business. We have also listened to our customers and there are now more cat scratching posts with more options to 'build your own' choosing your own height and colour. For the technical minded, we have also now moved to a fully responsive web site that should (hopefully) display properly on all devices including mobiles, tablets and desktop computers. Well that's the theory anyway, who knows? If you have problems with the new web site please let us know and we'll go and kick those techno wizards that built it!
