One of my favorite products at Global Pet Expo was the Scratch Lounge. I was delighted when the company sent us one to review – and so were Allegra and Ruby!
The Scratch Lounge is a good size, sturdy cardboard scratcher. The unique, patented three-sided design lets cats scratch to their hearts’ content, but it also gives them an alternative place to nap.
It didn’t take my two little product testers long to decide that the Scratch Lounge was a welcome new addition to our home. As you can see in the video below, Allegra approves by demonstrating proper scratching technique. I like that the Scratch Lounge is large enough to accommodate the full length of Allegra, even with her front paws stretched out.
Ruby was more interested in the lounging aspect of the Scratch Lounge, and shows off the many different positions a kitty can assume on it:
I think this scratcher is going to last a long time, even with daily use. The super-dense honeycomb cardboard is glued with a wheat-based non-toxic glue. The Scratch Lounge is made in the US from 100% recyclable material. It comes with a bag of extremely potent catnip. I didn’t need to use the catnip to attract Allegra and Ruby to the scratcher, but they sure were interested in the little plastic baggie the catnip came in!
The Scratch Lounge is available from Amazon, and many retail stores. For more information, please visit http://www.ScratchLounge.com. The home page features some adorable videos of kitties who love their Scratch Lounges!
