Mom hasn’t ordered a backup big scratcher lounger yet but she did restock my supply of Smartykat Cat Chaise scratchers. These are the ones I actually scratch on. She takes two scratchers and glues the edges together to make a double-wide. One scratcher would be adequate on it’s own, especially for a kitten or small cat. I’m a medium-sized kitty and I prefer a double-wide because there are more options for how I sit, lie, and use it for scratching. It can be used right-side-up like a cradle, or upside-down as a platform with a little tunnel underneath. It’s lots of fun when mom wiggles the feather wand toy under the tunnel and I can get my paw under there to attack it.
These scratchers are fairly durable and have a lot of scratching area if you use both sides. Each scratcher comes with a little packet of catnip.
Hey, check out my tail. You can see that I’ve grown more fur. It’s still a long way from being floofy, but it has some thickness to it and Mom says I don’t have ‘possum tail anymore!
