No more shredded sofas. The Cone is the world's most beautiful scratching post and nap space for your cat! It works so well because it takes direct inspiration from nature. The large cats often have a habit of scratching the barks of trees, to mark their territories. The reason domestic cats prefer furniture is because like trees, they are large, sturdy, and don’t topple over. The Cone was designed to resemble the tree’s bark and stay upright and unmoved.
