Summary

The MidWest Feline Nuvo Grand Forte Scratching Post is the tallest scratching post we’ve come across. This high-quality sisal post is sturdy enough for just about any size cat to scratch and even climb.


Description / Specifications

At 41″ tall, the MidWest Feline Nuvo Grand Forte Scratching Post is the tallest scratching post on the market. This jumbo sisal-wrapped post is 6 inches in diameter and has a large faux fur covered base. The faux fur is a dark brown color. The post itself is actually 2 separate pieces that are held together by a rod.

Base Dimensions: 19” x 19”

Post Height: 41 inches

Post Diameter: 6 inches

Weight: 20 pounds

Appearance

While the MidWest Feline Nuvo Grand Forte Scratching Post isn’t quite as attractive as some of its competitors, it makes up for it in functionality. The dark brown faux fur is a nice accent on this post. We just wish it came with a few more color options.

Owner-Friendliness

Assembly is very straightforward. The MidWest Feline Nuvo Grand Forte Scratching Post won’t make nearly as much of a mess as cardboard cat scratchers. And while we tend to prefer woven sisal fiber over wrapped sisal rope for its longevity, the MidWest Feline Nuvo Grand Forte Scratching Post is exceeding our expectations. We have not come across anyone who has had the sisal rope on this post come unraveled. And as a testament to the quality MidWest offers a one-year warranty on this scratching post.

Cat-Friendliness

The MidWest Feline Nuvo Grand Forte Scratching Post is sure to get your cat’s approval. This scratching post is big enough for multi-cat families as well as extra large cats. There is virtually no wobble even when cats vigorously scratch at this post. A number of cats will even enjoy climbing this post. It is as tall as some cat trees on the market. The top of the post is just wide enough for most cats to sit on, but not quite as wide as we’d prefer.

Quality / Longevity

The MidWest Feline Nuvo Grand Forte Scratching Post is made of very high quality sisal rope that should last a long time. The faux fur covered base and top are made of quality materials as well. The overall construction of this scratching post is quite impressive.

Pros

  • Very durable
  • Excellent height and stability
  • Quality materials
  • One-year warranty

Cons

  • Can’t be flipped
  • Assembly required
  • Only 1 color option

Summary / Recommendations

If you’re tired of wasting money on dinky scratching posts from the local pet store and you want something that’s BIG and built to last, the MidWest Feline Nuvo Grand Forte Scratching Post is the scratching post for you. We highly recommend this scratching post for multi-cat families. It is also a great option for extra large cats, like Savannah Cats and Maine Coons.
