|The Angel abides|
Truth be told, I really want a big, hunkin', and expensive cat tree, and a big, hunkin', and expensive scratcher too! However, in the hopes that someday we'll no longer need these zones, I opted for a simple, largish scratcher...for now. Cost: $20, and it's plain, no frills, and all of the cats use it. Score!
The Kittyslab is 20 inches by 15 inches, and about 2.5 inches thick. Surprisingly, Angel takes up a little bit more territory on it than she should, but nothing is left to fall over the edges, so 'slab' is a good descriptor. There is more info available at http://kittyscratchers.com/.
