I have long been an admirer of Square Cat Habitat, a modern cat furniture company, overall, so when they offered to send us one of their cat scratchers to try out, I got really excited.
We received their Lo, which is a horizontal cat scratcher that measures 1″H x 22.75″W x 8.5″D.
The base material of the scratcher is made from one of three materials and also determines their price variance:
- 100% rapidly renewable bamboo plywood $75
- laminated FSC birch plywood (new) $60
- laminated fiberboard (SDF) with 100% recycled wood fiber $45
You’ll love that a % of all sales are donated to cat charities.
Charlie and Trigg didn’t use the Lo very much in the first place I put it, so I moved it a few weeks later and they liked the new spot much more and not only used it for scratching, but also used it as a “launch pad” to attack each other.
I love that the scratcher has rubber feet help prevent sliding on hardwoods, tiles, etc.
I also love that it has many different scratcher inserts to choose from and that the scratcher inserts are recessed into the base material, so you don’t have to worry about exposed edges.
You can tell from the video below that I placed catnip to entice them to get on the scratcher when I was shooting the video – because I had a difficult time having the camera ready when they were actually scratching for less than half a second! But you can certainly put catnip on it to encourage scratching.
Now, I did get Trigg scratching in the arrival video:

I hope there will be many more Square Cat Habitat reviews to come – we would love to try out their Baobab, which is a modern cat tree.
