It’s been a while since I’ve taken a look at any pet products and today I have one that is a must have in my opinion if you’ve got cats that like to scratch. We have two cats, Hokey and Pokey and they’re old but they still like to play and of course scratch. I’ve tried to stop them from scratching but it doesn’t work so I needed to try something else like what I have for review today, the Noy’s Pets cardboard cat scratcher set. Included in the set is two scratching boards, hanger frame, cat toy and even a pouch of catnip. Great little kit for sure. Read on to learn more…
Specifications and Features
EVEN THE LAZIEST CAT LOVES TO SCRATCH – THAT WHER WE COME INTO THE PICTURE…
Everyone knows that cat’s have an instinct to keep their claws in shape by scratching surfaces and objects. To stop this natural behavior from being destructive, you have to give your cat something that he or she will prefer to scratch, something that feels better than scratching walls, doors, or furniture. Pads made of corrugated cardboard are great for this because cats love the texture.
KEEP YOUR CAT HEALTHY, HAPPY AND SATISFIED WITH NOY’S PETS FLAT OR VERTICAL SCRATCHER
However, most cats also like their scratching surface to be vertical, like the tree trunks that wild cats use to sharpen and groom their claws on. The decorative frame of the scratcher looks nice anywhere in your home, and the flat pad takes up much less room than a scratching post.
LESS SHREDDED CARDBOARD TO CLEAN UP
Another great thing about this scratcher is that the cardboard we use is tough, so the pad lasts longer and gives you much less shredded cardboard to clean up. Also, your order comes with a refill pad you can put into the decorative frame when the first one wears out — doubling the life of the scratcher!
FREE BONUS – PURE NATURAL CATNIP POWDER AND A CAT-TEASER DANGLING TOY
As a free bonus, we also include a supply of pure, natural catnip powder, and also a cat-teaser dangling toy. You can sprinkle some catnip onto the scratcher to attract your cat’s attention, or just use it to entertain your cat from time to time.
Price: $22.90 (from Amazon at time of review)
Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:
The Noy’s Pets cat scratcher comes packaged with just plastic wrap around it with a label. Through the package you can see the scratcher and a silver metallic pouch that holds the bonus catnip.
Included in the package is a frame holder, extra scratcher and a toy fish. The frame is 17 x 9 inches and has a thick string on the top to hang it up. The frame has clear rubbery plastic on all four corners that hold the scratcher in place but yet make it easy to remove when it needs to be changed. The frame itself is made of cardboard as well but it’s sturdy and rugged for sure and it has a colorful polka dot pattern on the back.
The included cat toy is basically a fishing rod with a stuff fish with a bell on the end of the line, it’s fine for what it is.
For some reason my two cats only like one spot in the house to scratch, trim around the door frame outside of the master bedroom. Not sure why, but that’s what they like, I’ve replaced it several times but I gave up and just let them do it. So I mounted the cat scratcher right next to where they are scratching as I was hoping they would use the scratcher instead of the wood trim. I also put down some of the included cat nip under it as well and the cat loved it.
My cats are brothers and they’re rather old but they still like to play, at least Hokey does anyway, he very much liked playing with the fish. My youngest son enjoyed playing with the cat with the fish as well.
For what it is I like the Noy’s Pets cat scratcher and my cats like it as well, they scratch it instead of my wall and trim which is a good thing.
The included toy is a nice bonus, my cat very much likes it and my son likes to play with the cat with it.
I think if you have cats that scratch you need a cat scratcher like this and this one seems durable and like it should last a while.
