Sweet Pea here.
Mommy refurbished another ESS for us!  The scratchy part had been ripped to shreds from our Deadly Talons, and maybe partially digested from a few incredibly gross artistically placed yakkings.

Did you know that The ESS can be washed?  Mommy cleaned ours with some laundry detergent and a scrub brush, and left it out in the sun to good as new!

Or almost. 
First this one needed a new surface to sharpen our scimitars. 

Hot glue, sisal rope, and thumbs are critical to do the job right...

...and close attention to Quality Control.

Hurry up Mommy, I need to take this ESS out for a Test Drive Scratch!

So Kitties, if your ESS is looking a, tell your Peep to get the lead out and spruce it up--ours cost under ten bucks and only an hour to rehabilitate.
We are so totally worth it, right?

Happy Friday!

  1. Yes, we are showing this to Äiti. This looks Very Good Indeed. However Mirsku is not so sure and wishes to see the ESS in action under May Ling, just to convince himself it's a good investment of 10 green papers.....

  2. How awesome that your human can fix your Ess right up! Ours isn't that beat up yet.

  3. Very clever! And yes, if only we kittehs had thumbs..... !

  4. that's a great to get mom a glue gun. MOL

  5. Our ESS got thrown in the trash because our mommy is so not resourceful like your mommy! Plus, our mommy would have no more fingerprints if she used one of those hot glue guns thingies.

  6. And we know your help was essential to the process.

  7. Great idea, far more economical than buying a new one frequently! Of course, that would our biped would need to get a glue gun too! :-D

  8. Yes, Sweet kitties are totally worth it! We used sisal rope around a cardboard carpet tube, and made a really tall scratch post, 'cause Chuck likes to reach up way high.

  9. Your mum did a very good renovation job. I hope you don't mind Sweet Pea, but I just kissed your nose freckles.

  10. Your mom did a great job with your too-much-loved Esse ! Purrs

  11. She couldn't have done it without you.

  12. We gotta tell you....we've had our ESS for over 5 years and it looks brand new still. That's because we hardly use it. Maybe we should send it to you guys.

  13. Your mom bean is so pawsome! And handy too....though we're sure she needed some close snoopervison.

  14. How cool that your mum can make that like new!

  15. Wow ! Paw Up for your mom !!!
    Great Job ! & Great Idea !
    Me think it looks better than original =^x^=

    PS : Lots of love to Miss Salem

  16. Your mommy is so crafty. Thanks for sharing this. Now our mom will know what to do if our ESS gets raggedy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
