Brawny Cat Sleeky Lounge XL Cardboard Cat Scratcher Review

Trigg on Brawny Cat Sleeky Lounge XL FloppycatsIf you remember, we reviewed the original Brawny Cat “Sleeky Lounge“, which we loved.

But this one is it’s big brother, and therefore it’s the Sleeky Lounge XL.

In comparison to the first generation of Sleeky Lounges, this one is way better quality and the cardboard fluting tightness is better than I have seen in the other cardboard cat scratcher that we have reviewed (well, maybe the Brawny Cat Big Baby‘s padlet is comparable).

For an all-cardboard cat scratch lounger – these are awesome.  This is cat scratch lounge where the kitty’s body doesn’t hang off the edge!  They are the perfect cardboard cat scratchers for large breed cats like Ragdolls, Maine Coons and Norwegian Forest Cats.

They are incredibly spacious:

  • Lavender Blend
  • Royal Red

You can buy them directly from Brawny Cat for $49.95 plus a shipping rate of $6.95.

Charlie and Trigg give the Sleeky Lounge XL two thumbs up!  And so do I!  It is going to be added as a recommended product in A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide.

Here’s Charlie hanging out on the Sleeky Lounge – you can see how well it contours to a kitty:

    I have this in royal red. It’s wonderful. Only, recommending it to my RagaMuffin breeder, I can’t make the website link work. Are these great beds still available? You seemed to have spoken with the maker, personally.

    Many thanks!

    Bought the blue scratcher- we call it Cleopatra’s sofa because Tessa is laying on it 90% of the time she’s supine. One big negative is (and maybe’s it’s just Tessa) but she ha scratched so much there is a trail of little pieces of cardboard everywhere she goes. I guess since she’s lying on it it gets on her fur and then she transports everywhere around the house. It’s pretty expensive to buy her a new one every month or 2. Just my humble comment. I’ll have to say she really loves it but causes me ALOT of cleaning.
