Last night Mom heard barfy noises and this morning she found a hairball in the one place that’s impossible to clean – on one of my giant cardboard scratchers.
I hacked up a hairball once before on this scratcher, so mom took a utility knife and cut away the offending cardboard and turned the scratcher over. Now that I’ve soiled the other side, there’s no more flipping & hiding and it’s time for a replacement. Luckily, she’s been storing a second scratcher in the closet.
The PetFusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge is a bit pricey ($50 at Amazon), but it lasts a long time because I treat this like furniture and don’t scratch it much. I mostly use it for lounging and as a step to the window sill. I’ve had this one for over 5 years and it’s still in very good condition so Mom doesn’t mind the cost.
The PetFusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge is well made and looks nice in the living room. The cardboard is dense and the ones I purchased years ago are cut & smoothed very well. The slick, colored edging has held up beautifully. I’ve sent these as gifts to two family members and they’ve also been happy with them. A larger cat can’t fit in the openings at the end, but kittens certainly could. I’m ordering another next week so I’ll see if they’re still the same quality as the ones I purchased years ago.
