The scratchers are:
Thought and time goes into every scratcher to make your kitty feel safe, happy and loved.
Made from wood
Built from strong, untreated pine posts with hemp rope for added durability and toughness (not cheaply covered cardboard).
Made to suit any
budget and taste
I can custom-build a scratcher to suit your kitty’s needs and your budget.
“I’m gonna scratch the lounge until you buy me a decent scratcher.”
My kitten Sage said to me one day, “Mum, I’m gonna scratch the lounge until you buy me a decent scratcher.”
I said “Son, I’m not going to buy you one… I’m going to make you one!”
With that he presented me with his whole Christmas list… “Ok well, first it must be solid and stable, that’s why l like to scratch on the lounge”.
“Can we make it really tall? I like being up high, and can it have lots of big spaces for me to stretch out on cause I’m gonna be a big boy when I grow up and can it have like a box on it so I can curl up in it but still see what’s going on around me?”.
“And you know I’m only a kitten now, so I need shelves where I can get to the top and come back down without being scared. One day I’m gonna be an old man and I know that will help me then too, but when I’m big and strong, I’m gonna want to go straight up the post to the very top but I’ll still need the shelves to come back down.”
“Most of all Mum, you gotta make it easy for me to scratch… and of course it has to look good so I can be in the lounge room with you Mum.”
When it was done he said “Wow Mum! It’s purrfect… I promise I will never scratch in the lounge again, I feel like you really ‘get’ me Mum… you really are a Catlover.”
He was so excited he convinced me to make them for other kitties too. And this is how Cat Lover’s Scratchers was born!
Uniquely designed. Stable and solid.
Whether an agile athlete or a sun-loving lay about, Catlovers Scratchers can make you a scratcher to suit your kitty’s needs and your budget.
A lot of time, thought and care goes into making each design practical, safe and with your kitty’s best interest in mind.
Even the position of a box is strategically designed to make your kitty feel safe and happy. The placement of shelves and posts are designed to make negotiating up and down safe for kittens through to older cats while long posts allow for the needs of an adult cat in their prime to fully exercise their muscles through scratching, climbing and jumping.
Cheap store-bought cat scratchers are made from cardboard. Catlovers Scratchers are made from untreated pine posts with rope for added durability. This solid construction makes them incredibly stable and long-lasting.

I first found Cat lovers Scratchers in my local newspaper approximately 10 years ago …
With a large cat and limited space, the solid workmanship, ability to choose my design and the price really appealed to me. Having already spent a lot of money replacing scratches that did not last, structurely falling apart … to find something that I only had to purchase once, and my precious cat loved using it. After using it for a couple of years it needed recovering in his favorite scratching areas, but the scratcher itself is still standing today, although used for another purpose after the lose of my precious cat. It was a few years later after again replacing several scratches, that I found Catlovers Scratches again … Now a foster carer of kittens aswell as having my own adult cats … there workmanship and design quality has again proven itself … With the scratcher withstanding many cats / Kittens, with so far 2 years solid use … with only their favourite areas showing signs of wear. I would not purchase a scratcher from anywhere else, after finding Cat Lovers Scratchers again …
My name is Annette Blakey and I am the owner of Rolypoly Ragdolls a boutique cattery and Breeder of Ragdolls in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
I have recently purchased a range of cat scratchers from Sonia’s Cat Scratchers. They are of the highest quality and I could not be happier with them.
I have purchased many cat scratchers before that have fallen apart after a short time as I have large cats that are rough on them. Sonia’s Scratchers are built stronger with more quality than any scratchers I have ever had.
She has been a delight to do business with and I would highly recommend her Scratches to anyone with cats either for a pet or cattery.
“We recently purchased a combined cat tower and scratcher from Sonia and are really happy with the result. The structure itself is of very good quality - it is very sturdy and reliable and it looks great. Its is of a much higher quality than the common shop bought ones. There is great attention to detail and it is evident that a lot of care and pride went into making it.
Our cat loves how tall it is - he feels like he is the king of his new castle! Sonia was great to deal with and was happy to custom make to specific measurements, colours and designs etc.
Pricewise it was very good value for money and it was great to see that Sonia offers a discount for rescue kittens and cats (yay!) I would definitely recommend this business to my friends and family.”
Little Paws Kitten Rescue is a cat rescue organization that has been operating for the past 11 years in the Brisbane area. Sonia of Cat Lover Scratchers has been supplying our main cattery at Loganlea for this time and we are very happy with the sturdy and attractive scratching posts that Sonia has made for our cats and kittens.
Sonia has been able to custom make any scratcher to fit a certain place in any cat run. All of the Little Paws cats and my own cats love her posts and are often found sleeping and playing in or on them. They are made of wood, not cardboard, which makes them sturdy and they last so much longer.
I would highly recommend Sonia's Cat Lover Scratching Posts to anyone who wants quality for their cats.

I have been very privilege to have Sonia make for me two well made scratching stands. These were made especially for my Maine Coon cats. They have plenty of room to stretch out or just hang over the side and play footsies with the smaller cats.
My many thanks,
As a cat foster carer, I have not come across another cat scratching post that is as well built as Sonia’s. I have have purchased other post before but my cat refuses to use them and instead, she would claw on my sofa. Since we brought Sonia’s post home, my cat has been happily scratching the firm rope tied around the pole many times throughout the day and sleeping soundly on the platform. Thank you Sonia for putting a lot of thought into building your scratching posts - It is sturdy, practical and plush. You really showed your care and love for cats!

Sonia, just a brief note to thank you for the cat scratching post you made for us. You have done a terrific job on it. It is strong, robust and very well made, it needs to be with a 9kg Maine Coon! The cats absolutely love it and are always playing or resting on it. I would have no hesitation in recommending your cat scratchers to my friends or any cat lovers that want a quality product that is built to last.

‘We couldn’t be happier with the customised cat pole Sonia designed and constructed so promptly for us. It completely accommodates our cat, Ruby, needs. The built-in scratch-pole has stopped Ruby scratching the lounge-room furniture and the quality of the products used are outstanding, as our cat pole looks as new now as when it was built for us 18 months ago. I’m so glad we found Sonia and her fantastic cat products!’
