Is there any way to replace the sisal rope on my cat's scratching post?

  • Yes! Just unwind what is on the post now. Measure. Head over to your hardware store or home improvement store and purchase more (take a piece with you so you know what size to buy), now just wind it around the post. Use glue at the top and hold it in place with a nail which you can remove when glue is dry and do the same at the bottom.

    We've replaced it. Our Home Depot didn't have natural rope so we found some at Hobby Lobby.

    Found sisal rope at Harbour Freight. Just take the old stuff off and wrap the new stuff on. Found using a hammer to squish down the rope about every fourth time you wrap it around helps a lot.

    Having made many!!! Cat trees, i prefer using industrial strength staples rather than glue...a staple gun is a necessity ...and attach on the under/back side of the post...removal to replace is much easier than using glue...and they hold better. Hammer down the corners and it will fit better

    Replaced two worn out carpeted scratching posts with sisal rope from the hardware store and my hot glue gun. They are holding up well.
