The Laser Paw Post is a cat toy and scratching post that can keep cats of various ages and sizes entertained for hours. It consists of a sturdy base that won't slip and a scratching post covered with durable sisal yarn, and the entire thing will actually emit red laser light for your kitty to chase. The built-in laser, which gives off the same type of light as a laser pointer, can move at four different speeds, depending on your cat's desires and needs.
The cost of Laser Paw Post is $29.99 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Laser Paw Post at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $39.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at laserpawpost.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Laser Paw Post and has taken down the website. Laser Paw Post may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
After you insert 3 AA batteries and turn it on by using the power button on the top, this device will go from being an ordinary scratching post to emitting 360 degrees of laser light. Once the light starts moving, you'll be able to choose from four different speeds and even adjust its angle. Your cat will then be able to use the post to scratch, chase the laser light, or attempt to do both at the same time!
Each device's laser light will create a wide, panoramic circle around the scratching post, regardless of the speed it's traveling at. Therefore, multiple cats who get along will be able to chase the light without getting in each other's way. Of course, a little friendly competition as to who can grab it first can be healthy for cats, as it'll stimulate their bodies and minds.
The Laser Paw Post has a non-slip base, so you won't need to worry about your cat accidentally knocking theirs over and getting hurt ( or damaging a household item ) while you're not home. It also won't fall over and wake you up while you're trying to sleep at night.
Each scratching post is covered with a very durable, thick type of yarn called sisal yarn. It'll never wear away, no matter how often your cat scratches, and some cats happen to find the unique smell of this yarn attractive.
This device is battery operated, so you won't need to find a suitable electrical outlet to plug it into, but you will need to provide all batteries ( including your first set ) yourself.
Cats have natural instincts to play and hunt, and also to claw things, so it's helpful that the Laser Paw Post will allow them to exercise both instincts in a productive, satisfying way. That means they probably will no longer be exercising their instincts to claw by clawing up your furniture or your shoes, or trying to turn household objects like toilet paper rolls into toys.
Kids will have tons of fun watching their cats try to grab this toy's laser light, and may even want to join in on the game. Due to the sturdiness of the toy's base, they'll be able to play safely with the cats without causing the toy to fall over and hurt them or the pets.
Unlike some scratching posts, such as cardboard ones, the Laser Paw Post's scratching post contains no material that'll fall off over time and end up all over your floor. Instead, the sisal yarn will stay firmly wrapped around the post, even if your cat likes to scratch more aggressively than the average feline.
Some cat toys simply move too fast for senior cats or overweight cats, or are too complex for kittens to learn to play with. However, that's not the case with the Laser Paw Post. If you've got a cat who tends to move slow, you can turn the speed of the light down, and turn it up again for a cat who moves more quickly. There's also a medium speed, if a bunch of cats of varying abilities and energy levels are playing together.
Besides cats, dogs may also enjoy chasing the laser light that travels around this post. You may want to keep your dogs separate from your cats during play, though, as their larger size and / or aggression could overwhelm the cats. Keep in mind that while the post's base is sturdy enough to withstand cat activity, it may not withstand the activity of a massive dog.
When you set up your Laser Paw Post, make sure you angle the laser beam so it won't shine directly into your cat's eyes. If a cat stares directly at the beam, their vision could get damaged, and the same goes for other animals and humans. To avoid damaging anyone's vision, your best bet is to aim the laser beam at the floor, as opposed to the wall or a piece of furniture.
Many cats enjoy using traditional scratching posts made out of cardboard or wood, but when they use these, the cardboard or wood may flake off and make a mess. This won't happen with the Laser Paw Post, though, and besides, it offers the extra fun of the laser light that other scratching posts don't provide.
Some people choose to move a hand-held laser on the floor for their cat or cats to chase, but this may take up time you need for other activities and duties. Plus, hand-held lasers certainly don't have scratching posts attached to them!
