Offer: Souped-Up Scratching Post (V8X 1V2) - So I had this on CL for ages, put a lot of work into it, it's worth more than free but I'm apparently the only one who thinks so -- had tons of replies telling me the ad was funny though :/ can't move it so i guess it's free now! -- I got this scratching post so my cat would stop scratching the carpet, but he didn't, so I figured it was too short, so I souped it up by adding a further 13" of cedar 4x4 (do you know how hard it is to drill down the center of a 4x4 lol) , and reinforced the base with 2" more of solid pine. I also added a dangly thing on the top. Guess what? He still doesn't scratch it after all that work. So I have to give it away. Well, now, it's totally kickass, way better than it was when I bought it. Full height, not including dangly thingy (which is removable) is 34". (I have also included a picture of my cat.) *EDIT* THE DANGLY THING IS GONE! POOF!!
