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.

New Classic Scratch Lounge

Featuring the same great quality as the original, this new version is slightly shorter and narrower, but the scratch pad is the same width.

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.

4 Comments on The New Scratch Lounge Classic: Same Great Scratcher, Now at a Lower Price

  1. We love this here too – we like when mom freshen it up with new nip its nice when she puts some on the side boards too.

  2. My two cats share both of what I call cat scratch lounge beds. They both love them as the “beds” are their go to place for sleep/vegging out- playing with a catnip toy or their find-the-balls toy. The first one was purchased about 15 months ago and I just replaced the cardboard. The catnip is an added bonus.

  3. I have had mine since you first wrote about it and my cats have all loved it. They seem to take turns but most of the time there is someone either sleeping or playing in it. It is extremely popular in this house!!
