I recently received a new product called the CarPET Scratch Stopper™, for free to review.
Created by a cat lover who refused to declaw her cats, the patent pending CarPET Scratch Stopper stops cats from scratching carpets at the doorways instantly, without harm to cats or further damage to carpets. The Carpet Scratch Stopper has recently been featured on Hauspanther and recommended by Jackson Galaxy (Cat Behaviorist featured on My Cat From Hell )on his Facebook page.
The CarPET Scratch Stopper’s unique, universal design fits standard U.S. 28″, 30″ & 32″ doors and requires no cutting or modification prior to installation; simply place it inside the door frame and the annoying behavior is instantly eliminated. The product is strong and durable, allowing it to be walked on as well as other normal daily activities, yet thin enough to close doors over; giving customers the flexibility to use it permanently or on an as-needed basis.
Tony’s daughter comes over on the weekends, and doesn’t mind the cats in her room, she just doesn’t like them in there when she is sleeping. One too many times she would wake up in the middle of the night and be nose to nose with a kitty and It would scare her half to death. Shortly after she started shutting her door at night, we noticed the carpet being torn up.
Harley is front delcawed (a decision I made many years ago before I educated myself on the topic), so he couldn’t be scratching the carpet, but he has on occasion tried to eat his way through things if he can’t claw his way through. Luckily after Harley was declawed he stayed a friendly, playful kitty and did not resort to biting like many declawed cats do. Jewel tore up the carpet in our old place in a doorway until we taught her to use cardboard scratcher. Oliver was ripping up the carpet on the stairs until we bought him carpeted scratchers, and door mats that he could scratch instead.
Long story short, we don’t know who, or how the carpet was getting ripped up in the door way, but we needed to do something! The CarPET Scratch Stopper™ fit perfectly in the 30″ size. I was afraid that the cats might try to lift it and move it, or that it would feel funny on their feet and they wouldn’t want to walk on it, but so far we haven’t had any issues. The cats walk right across it to go in when the door is open, and now just sit patiently waiting when the door is closed.
In the photos you may notice the left side of the door frame has a crack. We have no idea how that happened. It wasn’t like that when we moved in, we just happened to notice it one day after living here for 2 or so years.

I think this is a great product if you have a cat that likes to scratch the carpet in doorways. It is also useful if you are introducing two cats to each other. When we first adopted Jewel we kept her in a separate room and let Harley who we had already had for over a year have free reign of the house. After a week of that we would switch every day who was kept in the separate room so they could get used to each others scent, and Jewel could explore the house without having to worry about Harley. Whenever Jewel was the one segregated, she would claw up the carpet trying to get out.
This product is also great if you are having a party or work done around the house, and need to keep the cat(s) locked in a spare room. You wont have to worry that they are trying to claw their way out!
