I originally saw this bed featured in this review at SuperZoo (a HUGE pet trade show in Las Vegas in 2015). I think it is now mass marketed, and I wasn’t able to figure out the original manufacturer, so I am unsure if the glues and adhesives used are safe for cats – but I can tell you that my cats freakin’ love it.
The PAWABOO Cat Scratcher Lounge Bed is a recycled honeycomb accordion style cat bed. As you can see in the review video below, it comes to you in a box condensed down to it’s smallest size and then you open it up like an accordion – in a circular pattern to form it into a bed. You then use the two hefty rubberbands it comes with to secure it.
My cats did use this to scratch on – you can see in our unboxing video how Charlie immediately wanted to scratch on it, however it is not like a corrugated cardboard bed where they can really get their nails in and go to town. However, they were able to use it and you can tell from the difference from the unboxing video to the review video that it was used for scratching. Also, when I would pick it up to vacum underneath it, there were always cat claw shreds proving that it does help strengthen their nails.
My cats mostly used it for sleeping or lounging on, and they loved using it for that. Every afternoon I found one of them in the bed. I also found Charlie in it, more than I thought I would.
A vet tech commented on our review video saying, “as a vet assistant i have frown to learn that rubberbands are a terrible things for cats. If they are ingested then they can get tangled around the intestine. A terrible foreign body object.” After reading her comment, I thought, I am not sure why I didn’t think about that. My two have shown no knowledge or interest in the rubberbands even being there – which is odd because my two are attracted to hairties/hair rubberbands. So if they had shown interest, then I would have thought of it. So wanted to share that word of caution with you all. The rubberbands are wrapped around an indented piece of sturdy cardboard – so they don’t really stick out. See what I mean in image above.

Hi, I’m Jenny Dean, creator of Floppycats! Ever since my Aunt got the first Ragdoll cat in our family, I have loved the breed. Inspired by my childhood Ragdoll cat, Rags, I created Floppycats to connect, share and inspire other Ragdoll cat lovers around the world,
I’m Jenny Dean, and I am pictured here with my two Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg. I met my first Ragdoll when I was 3 years old. Christmas 1989 my parents gifted my brothers and me, two Ragdoll kittens – Rags and Cosby. Rags, who lived 19 years, is the reason why I started Floppycats in 2008. Continue reading about me here.
