Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Im back with some new useful stuff!

I guess cats like to scratch woods but Maxis did not allow them to do it.
Lets trick!

Build the post into the tree with cheat codes and turn it into invisible!

My self-cat Peach is on pic as a model :D

Thank you!!! I always wondered why they never made a scratchable tree in the first place. This is wonderful, I'll have them scratching every tree in the garden!

Many thanks. Will be very usefull. I'm going to see If I place it on the edge of a couch, so that it looks like kitty is scratching the couch, without actually doing it!!

Thank for making this invisible scratching post. It took me off this task.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Tank you so much! It will be very usefull if I´m going to do a sims-storie I´m allready thinking at the idea to make a invisible "cat-house" (don´t no what it is called in english) and make a tree with a low "what-is-it-called-now-again" so they can lye at it.

/illsim - Sorry for my bad enlish :P

Actually it is quite difficult to place the scratchpost exactly "into" the tree.
Please make many tries.
