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.
Carpet Pieces (not loop-styled, as cats can get their nails hung on the loops.)
Hot Glue Gun
Glue sticks for glue gun
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.
