A Scratcher? I Don't Think So...

Hello and Happy Caturday! Will was here over the weekend, and he helped Mommy take all that stuff to storage - finally! So when Mommy went to Petco the other day, she bought us this chaise lounge scratcher since we have some extra room.  

She thought maybe I would like to use it, since I prefer to scratch on flat surfaces and never use a vertical surface (unless it was her suitcase, which she wasn't happy about.) I really like to scratch the rugs, but she doesn't think that's a good idea.  Why? I don't know.  Humans are funny about their stuff sometimes. Here I am checking it out: 
She wants me to use this thing? 

Can you tell what I'm doing?

Yep, I'm scratching the rug right next to the scratcher! 
Scratcher, smatcher.  Gimme a rug any day.

Lexy jumped right on it and gave it a good workout. 
This is really cool.  Lola, you don't know what you're missing

She loves it! She thinks she's a queen on her throne. 
Lexy, Queen of Queens

Oh storage box, I have not forgotten you

Ummm... I just noticed something... do you see it? It's a little too small for her.  Her butt is hanging off! MOL 
What? It's a purrfect fit!

What did you say, Lola? 
My little sister can be a pest sometimes

Oh nothing, Lexy! Just that you look very regal. 

I thought that's what you said. 
Back to being the Queen

Do you kitties use scratchers? Or do you prefer other things?

Tonight is Caturday and we're holding our weekly Caturday Night Meow over at our Facebook Page. Come meow with us! We start at 8:00 pm, but you can meow at whatever time you want! 


Would you like to comment?

  1. We love our scratchers and use them lots! Boodie still likes to use the rug, though - it's her little quirk.

  2. Lola, you should give that scratcher a try...it looks like fun to us! Milita likes vertical scratchers, and Carmine likes horizontal ones. Carmine really loves the Imperial Cat scratcher we won a few weeks ago and doesn't scratch my bed nearly as much as he used to, which makes me quite happy. :)

  3. We don't have scratchers like this one, we use our cat tree, and we love it ! Purrs

  4. That is a terrific scratcher throne and yes, you do look very Royal!

  5. You girls are so funny. Lola, maybe your mom could get you a scratcher that's made out of carpet. The good thing about those is that you don't have to replace them like you do the cardboard ones. We have one that's liken an upside down U if that makes sense. I, Annie, like it even though I'm declawed (by previous owner). Pierrot loves his cardboard scratcher. He's like you, Lexy. He thinks he's king of the throne. Would sprinkling some catnip on it help, Lola? Lexy, you look good on your storage box and scratcher!

  6. You do look quite regal :) SOme of my kitties use scratchers, others prefer the furniture and the rug.

  7. Dat looks like a pawsum scwatcher. As wiff most of those kinds of fings we hang over too. MOL But dat's okay weez still luv anyfin' mommy or anypawdy else gets fur us. Me likes to scwatch all kinds of ways and all knds ofo fings, includin'da cawpet. Mommy isn't always fwilled, but oh well. MOL Hope y'all have a gweat weekend.

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Lexi

  8. What a cool scratcher! We don't have one like that, but we do have a few other scratching surfaces, like a post, and our cat tree has a few different scratching post places on it. We have a scratcher that hands on a door too. One like this would be good too!

  9. That's a pretty nice scratcher. We have a few scratchers all over the house but we still like to scratch the carpet. ;)

  10. HAH! Yes, yes, I can tell. Wait, if that scratcher isn’t cardboard, send it my way. I’ll have TW throw out that coffee table of hers to make room. I usually like vertical scratchers but love my Ess. I also won’t scratch on cardboard.

  11. We mostly use or scratchers - occayshunally we get caughts usin Grandpa's speakers.

  12. that is a beautiful scratcher!! Did you see the give-away we had? (it ended and Abby won)...I use my scratcher in a "strange" way too MOL, love Cody

  13. Well, we think that looks like a pretty nice scratcher, or throne. :)

  14. Fiona loves to scratch the carpets. Lisbeth loves the sisal on the cat trees. We have a variety of different scratchers to use. Bet your mom was happy that Lexy decided she liked the scratcher, especially as you rejected it. Hope you'll join our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop this week. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid and Calista Jo

  15. Lexy looks fab!!! Truffles favorite scratching spot was the rug too...it was her only bad habit!
