Cat would not use it.
This product seems well made and heavy enough to do a good job, but my cat would not have anything to do with it. I believe it was advertised to be scented with cat-nip, which my cat loves, but she never even sniffed at it. She just walked around it when I put it where she usually scratched her claws. She had always scratched inside using the carpet, so maybe she was just set in her ways. If there was some way we could have added fresh cat-nip to it, it very well might have worked.
