Since some folks here have been looking for a sisal rope mat, I just thought I'd mention the 3 places I've seen them.
1- World Market. I got my 2'x2' one here for $10.
2- Home depot...I was there about 2 days ago and they had them in
3 different colors. (I'd go with natural though)
3- Petsmart. They have a colorful kitty version.
If you can't find one, I actually thought of sugesting that you get some sisal rope and glue it to a board of some sort, then lay it on the floor for your kitties.
Give your mat a little spritz of catnip spray and watch the fun begin!!
I just bought a small sisal mat from Petco and so far, they've sniffed the catnip on it, and then totally ignored it. I placed it in Rocket's favorite scratching spot, so we'll see next time he wakes up from a nap and wants to scratch.
