Well, it might not be the tallest, but it sure is tall - over 13 feet! Mike wanted to make this pole for Sophie before we even got Zena because she loved to climb and her current posts are the typical cat posts - too short to climb unless you're a kitten. And Zena has been climbing up my ficus trees and knocked one over. We came downstairs one morning and it was lying on the living room floor! Neither claimed responsibilty, but we knew who the guilty party was. These are trees I've had for at least fifteen years and I really don't want them destroyed. And Zena is so active we decided the post would be a good thing to keep her busy and keep them both in shape. Here's Zena on top of one of our regular scratching posts:

Whenever I have observed one of my cats try to get a good stretch out of a standard cat post, it has moved or tipped and the cat has immediately given up and gone to find a more suitable object for an anchor - usually my sofa.
I have noticed that when my cats start scratching at the furniture, the pieces they choose to destroy have a few things in common:
1. They are stable and heavy. (I have observed that my cats always prefer a post that does not move when they dig their claws in and yank.)
2. They are wider than any standard cat posts. (My cats prefer a post that is wider than their shoulders.)
3. They are taller than any standard cat posts. (My cats prefer a post that is at least twice as tall as they are long. They like to reach up as high as they can and get a good long stretch.)
