I suspect the manufacturers of this scratcher does not expect cat owners to reverse these scratchers, because there is always a large, thick, smear of glue on the reverse side.. I have no intention of disposing of these scratchers after one side has been 'scratched out', so, I end up sawing, (more often digging), the glue residue off of the reverse side. I do not want my cats to injure their claws, as I suspect they could, if a claw were to be caught in this glue. It would be a 5 star product in all attributes, if this practice were to be discontinued. No other scratcher that I have purchased is glued to the carton. It is a totally unnecessary, and, annoying step. I used to use these scratchers exclusively, but, I got tired of digging glue out. I still use them occasionally, but, prefer to use the easier, less-expensive brands.
