See what our customers say about us and take a look at our happy kitties:

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

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!

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

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

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

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 !!!

Totally amazed how quick our cat took to his scratcher, best one we have ever had Nuno F 09/03/22

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.

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.
