What should I get for Chloe to scratch on?

I need to get something for Chloe to scratch on and I thought maybe you guys could help me out. She really likes to scratch on carpet. She doesn't like sisal or cardboard. She's a horizontal scratcher. She either stands up and stretches out while scratching the carpet, or she's laying on her side scratching the stairs. Neither of those options really work for me so I need to get her something that's all hers to scratch on.

The problem is, I can't find a good carpeted horizontal scratching post. Do you know of any good products like that? I thought about getting a rug or piece of carpeting that's a different color than what we have. But I'm thinking she might not realize there's a difference and she'll continue to scratch my carpet. Any suggestions?

How about constructing her a small set of carpeted stairs of her very own. Put it in front of a window and it's a perch too...put lots of catnip on it so she knows it's hers.

Whatever you get, put some catnip on it. If she's much of a nipper, she'll prefer it to your carpet.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you're a mile away and you have his shoes.
