The Company Of Pets Canine Cat Scratcher Review
Originally published Jan 10, 2012
UPDATE Feb 2015! You’ll notice below in the comments that a reader, Christy, asked me how well this canine cat scratcher has held up over the years. It is still a hit in our house and one of my favorite products that we received to review. Although I did not include it in our favorite cat products’ video because, honestly, sometimes I forget about it as it blends in with my decor. I took a new video to show how well it has held up – to me, it looks the same as it did the day it arrived and the cats use it daily to scratch on. Of course, it isn’t their only scratcher, so they don’t use it for all their daily scratching, but it is used daily.
When I first laid eyes on the canine cat scratcher, I loved it. I loved the concept for so many reasons – the irony of a cat scratching a dog, the design twist to a cat scratcher and because it was just cool.
When The Company of Pets, offered to send me one, I nearly jumped out of my seat in excitement. I so wanted to touch it, lift it, check it out – and I got that chance. It is all of that and a bag of chips.
The K9 Cat Scratcher is a manila rope wrapped bull terrier in the style of the 1990’s neo-pop art. It measures 20″ wide x 22″ high x 28″ long. It retails for $395. UPDATE Feb 2015! It now sells for $295 with $50 shipping in the USA
To be quite honest, I wasn’t expecting the cats to love this sisal cat scratcher. Whenever I am in love with a product, they don’t seem to take to it, so then I am disappointed because I cannot give it the review I want to.
Not so with this cat scratcher, folks!
Charlie and Trigg like their new doggy!! Love their new doggy! Look at this cat – he loves his doggie! Sorry for the photo quality with some of these photos – the one below was taken on my iPhone because I rarely have my camera around for the few seconds they scratch. And then when I do they tend to be blurry, and let me tell you, it is not possible to get a cat to scratch on demand.
I know it’s pricey – but I think it’s a stylish piece that will last for years. You can always email The Company of Pets and see how long they estimate it to last and then divide that number by the cost of it to get the break down/year of how much it will “cost”.
UPDATE Feb 2015!
What do you think of the Canine Cat Scratcher? Bill thinks it is a little strange.
