And now a word from our


 Many thanks to our customers who provided a little feedback. These comments are genuine. Some were in response to a simple inquiry from us about their happiness with their purchase. Some came in out of the blue. Comments are posted after specific approval from the person who made them (although some were too long to quote the entire comment). The dates of the comments are sometimes mentioned, but suffice it to say that they were offered some time between 1998 and today. -tommy ( your host & the person being addressed in these comments )

"Dear Tom,

I received the Flying Tee and it's great! My cats were scratching it even as I was putting it together. Thank you for the beautiful job you did and for keeping me posted-via e-mail through our entire transaction. I think the post office took too big of a chunk out of your profit, so here is a reimbursement."

-Lea (Wilsonville, OR)

( Lee and her main main squeeze just got a travel trailer and will take the kitties on their adventures. This would make our product a "Rolling Flying Tee!" - ANOTHER first! )

Dear Tom: 

Great product, easy assembly and alignment. Counter sunk screws and a good allen key was a pleasant professional surprise.

    Thanks Again,

Richard - Great Neck, NY

(Richard bought a LSP pedestal sisal post)


"Tom - Just to let you know we've now got our scratching post and Jake absolutely loves it!!!......It's a really great scratching post - and surprisingly stable considering how tall it is - I was ready to catch Jake when he leapt from the arm of the chair onto it but it was absolutely fine. He even looks good on it - the colour's great (Jake's a red point Siamese) so he looks really good when he's sitting on it (and doesn't he know it)!!"

Regards. -J. McB (Edinburgh, Scotland)

(note: this customer from Scotland purchased our tall pedestal sisal post - model LSP- along with a spare upright post.)

"... I received the scratching post today and it is wonderful! Best of all, it's being used already! Thank you again for such a smooth transaction. I look forward to doing business with your company again...."

- Christina (Orange, CA)

Dear Tom,

I wanted to let you know that I received the scratching post yesterday. I put it together immediately and the cats have been
using it ever since! It is difficult to find the taller scratching posts and this one is perfect. Thank you!

 "I did receive the scratching post on February 25. Our cat loves it. I want to thank you for your good service. It means a great deal to a customer when you promptly return their phone calls. I'm pleased with your service and products. I can assure you we will purchase products from you in the future." -Jeremy (Corning, NY)

Jezebel and Wesley are avid and sometimes relentless scratchers. I'm sure your posts have saved my rugs and furniture from unthinkable abuse."

Tasha is a Siberian Forest Cat. Their owners, from Naperville, IL, flew to Moscow to get her when she could be adopted. While Tasha was awaiting her debut, we worked together to produce a custom CL4 Condo (fitted with a crow's nest and trimmed in fleece), so she would feel at home upon her arrival. Thanks to Tasha's human companions for these nice close-up photos, which can be enlarged by clicking on them.

"...anyway, just wanted you to see how much Weber loves his LTP! The others scratch on it too, but he calls it his..."

 Tom, just wanted to let you know we received the scratching post for A.J. & George.  I can say one thing, you can tell good workmanship when you see it.  The design is very attractive in our home and most of all the cats love it.  I was afraid George would not take to this one like his other one.  To my suprise he allowed me to take the other one out.  The height of 30" is great for him to s t r e t c h and scratch.  One thing about a scratching post is that our furniture is not clawed by our cats.  I will send a picture when I get one.  Thank you, especially A.J. and George

Tommy, You should really put a warning in with the gifts you send. "SNIFF, EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK"!! After I finished my laps around the room, attacking the box and giving my "caretakers" wild laughter I at last came back to earth and discovered my new "perch". It could'nt be more PURRRRFECT!

Check me out.. CASPER.

"...My little girl especially loves the new tower; she's a "flyer" and now has her own perch from which she can repell all "attacks" from her brother. Tai, my little girl, is the seal point, and her brother, Shen, is the blue point that is twice her size. They are both loving the new post. THANK YOU!!!"

I received the first four posts.  You really do quality work!  One of my 6 week old kittens climbed to the platform at the top and actually found a way
to get down......Craftsmen of your caliber are quite rare today"

"The scratching posts arrived safely a couple weeks ago, and they are a big hit with "the girls."

I was very happy to find your website; we had been buying good sisal scratching posts from a small independent pet store that got them from a local independent supplier, but the pet store closed and now Boulder has nothing but pet store chains with generic supplies."

"...I want you to know that my kitties are very pleased with their new "condo" and it certainly is well made. Hoppy prefers the top shelf and Samantha likes sleeping in the 'round room'. .."

-Joan (Georgetown, FL) 


"I am writing to let you know that I received my shipment on Tuesday and that my cats are enjoying the post. You did a wonderful job and I wish to thank you very much. The strange thing was, that when I was throwing out my old post (which my cats loved for several years ), I noticed that it was also from feline design.

So unbeknownst to me I had done business with your company before....

"We received the condo today and it's great. Already, Tommy and Frieda have been climbing all over it, hanging out in the cubbyhole and sharping their claws. (I'm going to have to find the claw trimmer again!) They seem to like it very much."

"Hi,  We recently received the 30" sisal rope scratching post and our 2 tabby cats just love it! I couldn't find a post that  size in the stores, so I was thrilled to  find your web page. We really like it because the cats can really stretch up on it and it doesn't fall over. I will be recommending your posts to my other cat loving friends! Thanks,"

Thanks again...."

Just wanted to let you know that I received the scratching post yesterday and it is everything I had hoped.  It is tall enough for the cats to stretch up on and it is simple in design.  They loved it! They couldn't wait for it to be assembled before they used it!

Thanks again.

Best Regards,Carol (Hoboken, NJ)


Spencer is a very fortunate New York City kitty. He is shown with his well-worn 9 yr. old model LSP sisal rope post (above), and its replacement (below) . Many thanks to a long-time customer, Susan.



Here are a couple of success stories, where Feline Design has exceeded expectations:

Sparky & his 8 year-old LSP

"Here is a picture of Sparky and the scratching post. I had to move it  from it's regular location in the window [we assume for the photo], ...Our other cat, Pancake, is a large 20 pound cat, and he is the one who did all the scratching down low. Alas, he is too, ahem, "hefty" to jump up onto the perch... but he does enjoy lazing about the bottom....Thanks again for making such an incredible product. I still can't believe we've had it since 2003- I knew it was a while, but not that long!"
