I recently bought a back scratcher and while I like it – I felt it was too short. So I made this one based on the bought one. It’s mahogany and 18” long. I used a leather strip to dress it up a bit. I did mess up and put the hanger through the wrong side – but oh well.

I think that it looks about the right size to me, of course since we are currently housing 24 (mostly foster) cats I don’t have a lot of call to do my own scratching.

I like it ;-) I’ve been gonna do that for ages. I think I’ll copy yours. What do you mean put the hanger through the wrong side?

Thanks all.

Topa – I put the hanger through front to back and it should have been through side to side.

I love it! I REALLY NEED ONE! I’ll have to try to make one maybe with a slight curve to the handle. My Chemo has cause a nasty dry skin rash all over, but the only place it really itches bad, of course, is the middle of my back where I can’t scratch. Thanks for the idea!
