About Cynthia— Inventor of Scratch nAll® Devastating Details Of Husband's Will Leads To Invention Of Brilliantly Practical Pet Product:
Crushing revelation in husband's Will left senior entrepreneur financially challenged - but determined to succeed. By combining a lifelong passion for animals with her keen awareness of their seasonal and environmental 'itchiness', this self-made entrepreneur invented a brilliantly practical and safe solution to a challenging problem that plagues horses and donkeys, dogs and cats, goats and pigs, lynx and lions ... and almost everything in between.
Cynthia, the inventor of Scratch n All®, has enjoyed the company of animals her entire life. As part of her awareness of needs and behaviors common to all animals, she knows nearly all engage in self-grooming and scratching behaviors; hence, Scratch n All® was originally born out of the to provide a convenient, safe surface for all animals to satisfy that basic "feel-good" feeling.
To return a portion of that animal devotion, Cynthia gives her time and talents to assist various transport groups which are dedicated to rescuing domestic animals and pets from the certain death that awaits them at high-kill shelters. She and her daughter traveled to Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina to aid in animal rescue efforts there, helping to save the lives of many displaced and abandoned pets affected by the storm's immediate devastation and prolonged after effects. These efforts arise from her understanding that all animals, indeed all of nature, are gifts with benefits essential to both our well-being and basic survival. She agrees that when man tugs at a single thing it nature, it is connected to the rest of the world.

Why Should I Be Concerned About Helping My Horses Or Barn Animals To Scratch?
Because you love your horse and because scratching and grooming is a self-enriching activity enjoyed by all animals, they will rub on any convenient surface or object— even YOU! Door jambs, furniture and posts soon show wear and may even break or splinter; creating rough edges and sharp points that could puncture the skin or cause other serious injuries. The Scratch n All® pad can help prevent injuries to pets and livestock and damage to structures.
Is Scratch n All® Safe?
When compared to the competition, Scratch n All® offers a safe and effective way of self-scratching so that the skin, face and especially the eyes are not harmed. Even though it's very durable, the small nubs on the pad are flexible which are comfortable, satisfying and non-irritating to the animal and it touches many key acupressure points. Compare closely as other scratchers have protrusions which are set far apart, some of which appear to be 1" long. Your animals' eyes are at great risk when these protrusions bend and snap back quickly. Scratch n All® is not made of hard plastic with hard ridges nor does it require heat in order to bend. Scratching on a rigid object can cause baldness as well as bleeding.
Can Scratch n All® Help My Horse On Stall Rest? Scratch n All® is an animal "enrichment" product. Is your horse on stall rest?

Consider lining 1 or 2 walls, horizontally at shoulder height and a 1" space in between, where your horse can walk by and scratch its face, neck, shoulder, barrel and rump.

My horses love the scratch n all patch pads. I put the pads where the horses can access the pads with great satisfaction. Its amazing how the horses know what they are for. Very happy with the scratch n all that I had to buy more. Happy horse, happy owner. -SueAnn
I bought my first (4) last year and my mare loves them. I waited until they went on sale again and purchased another (12). If I could afford more I would have bought about 20 or so more to make large scratching areas for my horses. They do not pull out manes or tails on these and the horses seek them out. I love the handwritten notes. All the hardware comes with them and it's all high quality. — Sarah
Having tried other products, I can honestly say this is the best of its kind by far. The little nubs are just slightly pliable which makes them relieve itches without breaking the horse's skin. Also, the pads are very durable, no chance of them being destroyed by a bored horse! Highly recommend. - Elyse
