For this deceivingly innocent looking cat, Scratch ‘n Shapes Kitty Scratchers by Imperial Cat are just what the doctor ordered.
For years I have battled Pumpkin, my fat, destructive orange kitty and his claws. In South Korea, he totally destroyed the fake wood trim, wallpaper, chairs, and just about anything he could get his claws on. Now I know why people charge a pet deposit… When I came back to my old farmhouse in the states, no refinished antique post, trim, or wallboard was safe. He completely destroyed all our hard work to fix up the house in less than a year.
When I moved to New York, I knew something had to be done. I got them a giant cat condo and I started keeping their nails trimmed, but I found that Scratch ‘n Shapes were the real answer to my problem. I should have known this because: 1. The animal rescuer who gave him to me told me to leave out old boxes for him to scratch on, and 2. He destroyed and opened every moving box I packed as I packed it. Pretty determined for an old fat cat.
When we arrived in our new apartment we had a Scratch ‘n Shapes waiting for us. PUMPKIN LOVED IT. He rips at it all hours of the day and it was getting pretty well worn in when we received our new Cheese Wedge Scratch ‘n Shapes from Imperial Cat. Immediately I was swarmed by all the cats. They usually don’t care when I get a package, which speaks a lot for both the product and the potent catnip they packaged with it. After I opened the box and sprinkled a half table spoon of catnip on the scratcher, I had a bunch of zonked out, drooling cats chillaxin’ around the ‘wedge. And I’m not joking about the drool.
After 3 months and 1 scratch ‘n shapes scratcher, I have no damage to any walls, sofa, or other surface. It has been amazing. The only thing he wants to scratch is our Scratch ‘n Shapes toys! Even my cats who aren’t destructive enjoy clawing on this simple cardboard toy. Coupled with monthly toe nail clippings and the Scratch ‘n Shapes, my kitties all have soft, gentle rounded claws. I’m so happy to have another Scratch ‘n Shapes cat toy, but I am definitely going to have to hide the ‘nip.
With Imperial Cat Scratch ‘n Shapes toys around my house I have completely perfect walls, an undamaged sofa, a happier kitty and a happier me. If only the Scratch ‘n Shapes could keep Pumpkin’s brother from peeing all over the floor…
