When the box came in, Olive was on it like a magnet, pawing at the cardboard as I ripped it open. It comes with catnip, which she was equally intrigued by.
I liked the design—it's cute in a retro kitschy sorta way--and it has reversible scratch pads. It's got plenty of room for a little Cornish Rex, and Olive sometimes just sits in it near the door.
Olive's never been great at identifying what to scratch. In fact, she seems to like my couch more than anything else—well, except my computer chair. But I'd say her third favorite option is the Scratch Lounge, which she clearly favors over the other scratchers, which sit unattended taking up space in my house. I'll probably throw out the others and keep this one.
The warm and fuzzy part? A portion of profits go to animal rescue, including free spay and neuter clinics.
