I had a hard time finding one of these corrugated cardboard scratchers that would fit my large cat so that he could actually lay on it as well. He had a smaller one from Target that he could only get half of his body on. He's two years old and 20 pounds. Settled on this one (animal print, S-Chaise, 22" long) and it's perfect. Right out of the box he was on it...scratching and lounging. Just what I wanted and what he needed.
