We’ve long been fans of the Scratch Lounge. This three-sided scratcher will last far longer than other scratchers because of the reversible super-dense honeycomb construction of the pads. In fact, the design is so unique, it was issued a U.S. utility patent.

Our take on the Scratch Lounge
I can attest to the durability of this scratcher: we’ve had the original Scratch Lounge for at least five years. It gets almost daily use from Allegra, and it’s still in great shape. Even better, it’s not as messy as cheap scratchers. The dense design results in fewer cardboard flakes, and the high sides contain the flakes that do get released, so it’s super easy to occasionally dump them into the trash.
Ruby loved the Scratch Lounge, too, although she had a rather unique approach to using it. Watching this video now is bittersweet – it’s such a purrfect demonstration of Ruby’s silly side.
