Have you seen cardboard cat scratching boards?
They are very popular and make a mess too.

Dexter likes to bite anything paper or plastic.
I have to watch him closely to be sure he doesn't ingest anything toxic.

The only 'scratching post' in this house that Spaz will use is the huge cardboard box that our gas grill came in.
After over a year though, it's starting to wear out so I guess I need to buy another appliance to replace it

Manytoes has this affliction too!
He goes INSIDE the box, then tries to scratch his way out!

Sho likes to chew on box corners and I can't leave a bag of cat food down for very long. His bowl could be full but he just has to chew a hole in the bag. He absolutely loves boxes that have tape on them, he'll sit there and slowly peel it off.

My kitties have a couple of the cardboard scratchers too, they have a couple of rope scratching posts in the living room that are regularly used, but the cardboard ones are still their favorites. I suggest everyone get a couple they're cheap and are perfect to put by a litter box. However they do start flaking pieces of paper after a while, easy enough to clean up.

You should search Fur Pics...there is one cat - I think it is Huggles' cat Cedar, that makes these really cool sculptures when he eats through boxes, LOL.

Yep Benson does this too! We leave a box out for him. One time I put it away and he bit our dinning room chair. I won't make that mistake again.
