When the big box addressed to “Allegra and Ruby King” arrived last week, the girls were very excited. The box had paw prints and cats on it! They couldn’t wait for me to open it. When I took the Catpods Original Catpod™ out of the box, they immediately went to investigate.


What is a Catpod? It’s a scratcher, playhouse, catbed, and big cat toy, all in one. Even though at first glance, the cat pod looks like your average cardboard scratcher, it is most definitely not average. It is sturdy, and heavy enough so it won’t move around when your cats go to town on it. It’s made from recycled packaging materials and with non-toxic adhesives.

Allegra started to use the Catpod as a scratcher immediately. Then she crawled inside. Not to be outdone, Ruby came over to investigate. She particulary likes the three holes on each side: she peeked inside, then stuck her paw in to bat at Allegra.


We also got a bag of Kitty Pucks with our Catpod. I love a company who recycles, and this is a super creative way of  not wasting anything in the production process. The pucks are what’s left when the holes are punched in the side of the Catpod. Ruby and Allegra love batting the pucks around. They also seem to love leaving them in strategic spots where I’ll be sure to trip over them. The Kitty Pucks are currently available at no charge with any new order.


The Catpods come in a variety of designs. I think I’m going to look into getting a Puzzle Lounger for the girls. They both had so much fun poking at each other through the holes in the Original Catpod, I bet they would have a blast with the Puzzle Lounger version.

Allegra and Ruby give this innovative product four paws up. They’ve played with it or used it as a scratcher every day since I put it up. Even though they have plenty of other scratchers, this one seems to have become the “go to” scratcher for them.
