Great for making my parrot toys !
I purchased this rope to make my parrot some toys. This size was perfect as I have made him quite a few already and there is plenty left to make a few more. So Max the parrot says THANKS Home Depot !

Warning on label - maybe not good for pet use
I started to replace the rope on the cat tree when I noticed the label stating it contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects and reproductive harm (state of California) I might have to try another 100% sisal or maybe they all do. Cannot seem to find any additional info.

    good sturdy rope
    The only issue with this is that after tightening the rope...after it's tied...it begins to slack... Walk away from tying down a perimeter thinking it's tight...come back to it a half hour later and it needs to be tied down tight again.

      Just what I needed
      I had an unconventional use for this. I bought a case of these and used this to wrap around the upright portions of my 2 home made cat perches. This rope allows them to get a firm grip while climbing up and also provides a good surface at the bottom (where I used extra rope) for claw sharpening.

        good natural fiber rope
        I used this rope to make a scratching post for my cat. I wanted natural fiber and this fit the bill. Cat loves it and so does my furniture as it is no longer the scratching post. Fair price too... you can buy longer lengths online but for this length and size the price compared with online deals. I've also purchased the larger diameter of this product months ago and it looks like it will last for years.

        This product is great for tying up and supporting new trees
        Bought it for tying up some newly planted trees to support stakes. Great product for that. Is gental on the bark of the new trees. A little high on the price, but it did a good job on what we bought it for.
