Review and giveaway: Kittyblock scratcher provides corrugated cardboard fun for cats

Kittyblock_cat_scratcher

Allegra hasn’t met a scratcher she doesn’t like, so I expected her to enjoy the Kittyblock. I just wasn’t pepared for how much she loved it! As soon as it came out of the box, she was all over it. It has since become a favorite at our house for both of the girls.

The Kittyblock was designed by Paul Roberts. It is made from corrugated cardboard and a starch-based adhesive. Weighing in at 8 pounds, the blocks are nice and sturdy. They didn’t move when Allegra and Ruby scratched and jumped and played on them.

I love that it’s not just a scratcher, but also a hiding place and a kitty jungle gym. Ruby likes to stalk Allegra from inside it, while Allegra prefers the spot on top.

Allegra and Ruby love their Scratch Tower from Moderncat

One of the paws down best parts of this year’s BlogPaws conference in Salt Lake City, UT was the Catification Lounge, brought to us by Miss Moderncat Kate Benjamin and Cat Daddy Jackson Galaxy.

Picture an entire hotel ballroom full of cat furniture, cat toys, and other cat paraphernalia – the definition of paradise for cat lovers. Kate has some great photos of the lounge on Moderncat. Everything on display was given away to some very happy winners. I won a Moderncat Scratch Tower, which I had shipped since it was most definitely too big to fit into my suitcase.

Allegra and Ruby got very excited when I told them that the bix box that had just arrived was for them. As soon as I opened it, they both went to investigate. I had barely taken out the Scratch Tower when Allegra immediately put it to the test Continue Reading

Review and giveaway: Enter to win a KatKabin cat house

Allegra on ScratchKabin

Whenever a box arrives addressed to Allegra and Ruby King, my two product testers know that it’s time for them to get to work! They’re always very helpful with opening the boxes, and they can’t wait to see what fun new product they get to check out.

Their eyes got bigger as it became obvious that something really big was going to come out of this particular box. Once I got the KatKabin® it out of the box, it didn’t take Allegra long to claim it as hers, as you can see in the photo above.

KatKabins® are unique and innovative cat houses. The outdoor version stands above the ground and provides a warm, cosy outdoor shelter for napping, stretching and relaxing in all weather conditions. It comes with a removable KatFlap and a washable KatKushion.Continue Reading

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. Continue Reading
