I got this for my two boys to put in my room. It really matched the bright, happy feel that I try to keep in there, and they have two scratchers in the living room and I want to, eventually, have a scratcher for them in every room. They both loved it! I tried it both diagonal and flat, and I think they like it flat best. Ziggy loves to scratch at the top and Charlie prefers scratching the top, so it worked out perfectly for both of them. And Ziggy loves sitting on top and doing "surprise" attacks on Charlie when he walks by. He's really not that stealthy though.
The kittens love it and it is adorable! Very satisfied with purchase.
