While trying to encourage Charlie to start scratching something other then the furniture i decided to make this scratching post. I probably should have just nailed a big log to a 2x10 and called it good. But i tried making something that looked cooler. Too bad he doesn't use it. Still prefers the underside of chairs and couches. And for the record his total number of knocked over plants is 5 and he's still drinking out of toilets.
