One late night, as I was watching a recorded episode of the Ellen DeGeneres show, I was lying in bed scrolling through Etsy on my laptop, looking for cool cat furniture. That’s when I stumbled upon, Purrfur. I saw their cat house and thought it was a super cool mid-century modern cat house – so I reached out to them with interest in reviewing it. Damian, the Purrfur Shop owner, emailed me back saying he could send one and also one of their scratch pads. I am thrilled that he did.
The Purrfur cardboard scratch pad has a modern cat furniture – retro-type design. It has a mid-century modern looking base with a replaceable corrugated cardboard scratcher insert – making it a stylish scratcher or a perfect cat bed.
You can see in our PurrFur unboxing video below that both products immediately interested my Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg.
The Purrfur Scratch Pad has had a permanent home in our kitchen since we unwrapped it – and I’ve included a video below of the cats “fighting” over it when I first moved it in there. Per usual, when I put a cat scratcher in that spot -they use it as a bed, a scratcher and a perch. They use it the most for scratching when I come down in the morning to prepare their breakfast or dinner or when I come home – as the garage entry door isn’t far from it. Cats tend to scratch to release emotion, so it’s a great place to have it in a room where they get excited.
Both of my cats used it to scratch on, sleep on and perch on.
I love this scratcher – it’s beautiful and definitely not an eye sore like many cardboard cat scratchers that you’ll meet. It’s more a piece of furniture that looks good in your home.
