27th JUNE UPDATE: Due to exceptionally high demand our ESTIMATED lead time for ALL ORDERS is now up to 8 weeks. We are working 16 hour days, 7 days a week in an attempt to clear our order backlog. If you are not happy to wait for your handmade product, it's best not to order at this time.
Due to our recent workshop relocation, we still do not have a landline and broadband installed. It is therefore taking us longer to respond to emails as we currently do not have internet access during the day. If you are awaiting a response from us, please bare with us - we are working through all emails as quickly as we can.
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! This unique cat Scratching Post is modelled on the famous London Clock Tower and is breathtaking in every way! From the design, the superb detail and top quality finish - this really is a superb piece of British craftsmanship.
We're so confident that you and your cat will love this cat scratching post that we'll give you a full refund if you or your cat are not entirely satisfied with it - that's the ScratchyCats Catisfaction Guarantee.
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 8mm thick chunky sisal rope to the tower. This is not an easy task as thick rope doesn't naturally want to bend and stick to right angled corners!
With such a large, heavy scratching post, you need to ensure its stable - so we've opted to give the Big Ben a very large 50cm square base which is around 1 inch thick. This adds weight, and massively aids stability. To complete the theme, the large base is wrapped in vibrant London fabric featuring some of London's famous landmarks and tourist attractions.
This is a rock solid scratching post suitable for even the biggest breeds. The base fixes to the tower with all metal stainless steel fixings.
As with all of our top selling scratching posts, we use 8mm sisal rope on this post and the cats love scratching it. We're so confident that your cat will use this post that we offer a money back guarantee if your cat doesn't like it.
This is a handmade item (made in Devon) and is very labour intensive to produce as I'm sure you can imagine. It's not a cheap mass produced Chinese item.
Assembly is very easy and no tools are required.
