Reuse Recycle Emery Cat Scratcher

Reusing Recycling Emery Cat Scratcher

I recently purchased the Emery Cat Scratcher.  I threw away the cardboard insert, as the cats were'nt the least interested in it, and I was worried they would pull out a nail.  I bought carpet pieces/rugs at the dollar store and cut them to fit into the Emery Cat Scratcher.

Supplies Needed:

Carpet Pieces (not loop-styled, as cats can get  their nails hung on the loops.)

Utility Knife

Hot Glue Gun

Glue sticks for glue gun

Catnip

I measured and cut the carpet pieces to fit.  Be careful with utility knife.  You might want to put a  rolled newspaper  underneath while cutting.  (I have a nice gash in the floor now.  OOPS!)  Then I applied hot glue to the scratcher and pressed the carpet down firmly.  Then I tugged on the carpet to be sure it was secure.  I sprinkled it with catnip, and then the kitties tested it and gave it their approval.
