For those of you who have kittens and cats, you know that they love to find things to scratch! My kitten, Beatrice, needed a new item for her to scratch. She has a scratching post, which she uses sometimes, but I needed something that was lightweight and easy to move around my house (and for when we travel with her).

When I originally found the product on Chewy , I couldn’t believe it had such amazing reviews. “It’s a box with freaking cardboard ridges…” I thought to myself. “How could this be so highly rated?”
Well, I ordered it… because I am a sucker for good reviews! I had to see for myself why it was so highly praised.
Once the item arrived, I unwrapped it and put it together. Again, I sat there perplexed and thinking, “this is literally a freaking piece of cardboard that I just purchased.” However, once I placed some kitty crack in the box, Beatrice immediately flew over to it and began examining her new toy. I know what you’re thinking…Bull.
But I swear, she absolutely loved it. I kid you not. She scratched for what seemed like hours and to this day, she still uses it nonstop.
I move it around the house and whenever she tries to scratch unacceptable objects, such as furniture, I place her scratcher by her for her to use. It is absolutely amazing and she loves it! For those wondering, she uses it even if there ISN’T any cat nip in it. She genuinely just loves to rest on it or scratch it.
It’s hysterical that I paid for a device that is just cardboard with ridges in it but I swear it works and will 100% be replacing it in the future once this one gets destroyed.
