We have a tree and a scratching post for our burmese cats. They love them and it is a feature in our house and not one of those cheap looking options from the chain stores. Both items are put together with care using the best materials and totally unique. Ever care was taken to ensure they arrived with no damage. Highly recommend sophisticated scratch for a totally quality product.

First of all these are probably the most beautiful cat scratch sculptures that exist. People that see them in my home gasp and comment, liking them to African sculptures or something. Secondly my cats adore adore adore them. I have a stunning new sofa in which is almost untouched due to the strategic placement of these around my home. They cant go outside so it is a perfect arrangement as they can scratch perch and play on them. Lastly, di and mark are so friendly and kind. I had a small issue with my big three tier perch and mark came three hours driving to hand fix it!!! Free of charge, pleasant as could be, and just such a lovely man.
I can not recommend investing in these cat sculptures enough!!!!

A gorgeous, handcrafted product that looks beautiful in our home. Our kitten loves her cat tree from Sophisticated Scratch and spends hours in here looking out into the garden or curling up to sleep. Wonderful customer service and delivery.

Thank you Di for saving my new sofa from being destroyed by our Bengal! The Pantanal cat scratcher was the perfect solution

We recently purchased a Large Cat Tree for our Maine Coon Ziggy, and it has been a huge hit! He loves it! It's the first cat tree that has been big enough to fit him, and it's been well worth the investment. Ziggy enjoys lounging and playing on it, and it's been a great addition to our home. Definitely would recommend Sophisticated Scratch cat trees for any large cats out there

It's such a beautiful piece of furniture and my cat loves it! It's the perfect addition to our home.

My Maine Coon loves his new scratcher! It’s tall enough for him to really stretch out and scratch, and it looks great in my living room.” Thanks Di

Di was so kind and professional when managing the creation of a cat tree for our two Siamese and our newly decorated home. She was very attentive to our needs and was able to provide us with the perfect cat tree that fit perfectly in our home. Di's customer care service was exceptional and it was a pleasure working with her.

I brought a Sundra Cat Scratcher and was amazed how stylish it is and definitely an elegant addition to my home. Not only does it look beautiful, but it is also made robustly. I won't be buying my scratchers from anywhere else from now on.

Outstanding service, with the most beautiful bespoke furniture for your kitties. Quality and attention to detail is spot on. If you are looking for something different from the run of the mill cat products I would highly recommend. Whilst a slightly higher price bracket, they are definitely worth every penny. I invested in a three tier platform, my kitties loved it so much we now have a papa scratch and a snuggles for 2. The service is superb, delivery speedy and aftercare exemplary. Highly recommend


I absolutely love it!!!! Thank you so much, you and your husband are fantastic!

Absolutely beautiful piece of furniture, wonderfully crafted using high quality stunning pieces of wood from an oak tree and a beautiful sheepskin topper. I couldn’t be happier. It would be a beautiful piece of furniture even if your fur babies decided it wasn’t for them 🤣. Luckily my kitten has started to lounge on it in the sun

Vanessa E

Hi Di - the scratchers are absolutely stunning! Thank you so much - and a lovely service to have them personally delivered! I was admiring the cat tree in the back of the car so don’t be surprised if you get another order from us in a few months time - it’s stunning!

Jared. M

We just wanted to let you know how overwhelmed we are with cat tree. It’s absolutely beautiful. Thank you also for the fast delivery can’t believe how quickly it arrived. Thank you so much !!!!

Carol and Luke ( the cat )

Thanks so much guys- the pieces are amazing and the kittens love them. Im hoping for the tree soon!  Thanks so much for making for us. Really gorgeous. My partner said it looked like african art installation at a museum 🙈🤗

Cookie wasted no time trying out his scratcher, we hardly got it out the box and he was scratching upon it. Thank you Di

Rosemary R

Dear Di I write to thank you for my recent order which arrived beautifully packed and safe. This item is an absolutely stunning work of art, the colour and workmanship is of the highest quality and blends into any decor due to its gorgeous patina. I am now the proud owner of 2 of them. My cat who is almost five years started playing with Rodney Rat almost immediately and after sitting beside the Scratch for a while I am pleased to say she has started to use it .  Thank you so much

My very best wishes


Hi Di Thanks for the amazing delivery! Coco and Maui love their new tree.  Many thanks Sarah-Jane

Hello Di  Just a quick note to thank you for taking the time to drop the post off yesterday, it is amazing and I’m sorry I was not there to thank you personally. As you can see, he’s quite small yet but very enthusiastic ! We will be sure to pass on your details to anyone who comments on the post. 

Thanks again

Absolutely gorgeous scratchers and cat tree, very luxury and statement piece. I will definitely be ordering more! ​

Kat Tonks

You never disappoint, I and my eight cats love their beds and scratchers. Worth every penny.

P. Courtney

Everything about the tree is so perfect , the adjustable legs and the way the rope for the rat goes through the wood and is tied , the detail is superb.  I can see such a lot of work has gone into making it.  I really didn’t realise from the picture how beautiful it is . The rat is also gorgeous and so big and fluffy .  Thank you so much.  Carol Sorry to go on but we are thrilled !!!

Carol G

Totally amazed how quick our cat took to his scratcher, best one we have ever had

Hi just wanted to say a huge thank you as my new cat scratch post & furry Rat came this morning, very pleased with both item’s, will be ordering more Rat’s & possibly some Sheepskin in the future, Ratty was a different colour to the one I expected but am delighted with it & presume colour’s change as it’s a natural product, again a huge thank you, hopefully my two new cat’s coming this Sunday will appreciate it as much as me, couldn’t stand to buy one of those ugly cat scratcher’s you get off the internet from pet store’s, this one look’s great in my small cottage & blend’s in well with other furnishings I have.

These are absolutely stunning. I've had the privilege of seeing Di and Mark's workshop first hand and the transformation from a lovely, but ordinary, oak limb into a beautiful piece of furniture is incredible. Wood is amazing in its own right and Di shows off the wood, bringing out its uniqueness. I absolutely love the resin bases (see blog 3/9/22). These are meant for the cats, but it's art for people too.

Colette. H

Superb craftsmanship, second to non. I've purchased two scratchers for my seven cats. They use them daily. Scratchers still in good condition, sisal still intact. These will last absolute years. Made with pride. Packaged well and delivered fast. I highly recommend Sophisticated Scratch, the scratchers are a thing of beauty but practical and strong.
