Repairing worn areas on your cat post is as easy as wrapping the “shredded” carpet in sisal rope
A typical 4x4 carpeted post will need approximately 50 feet of rope for every “foot” height of post
Example: If the worn area is 6 inches - then you would need 25 feet of rope
-wear light gloves when handling sisal as it has tiny fibres that could poke skin - like a wood sliver
-cut away loose strands of carpet fibres with scissors
-start your rope at the bottom of the worn area and wrap upwards
-always keep the rope tight as you pull it around all 4 sides
-2 people opposite sides -passing the rope around works best
- if your cat is new to sisal rope - give the rope a spray of catnip for encouragement
CATMAN sells the 3/8-inch-thick "All natural" sisal rope for 35¢ per foot and includes the fence nails that have less risk of a claw getting caught.
Be careful if you plan to buy sisal rope at a big box store. Some brands are treated with oils or preservative chemicals that maybe harmful to your cat.
