Bootsie's Combination Scratcher Satisfies Your Cat's Scratching Needs (Giveaway)

Hello, everyone. This is Lexy checking in with a review of a great product for you. Today I present you with Bootsie's Combination Scratcher by SmartCat®. 

 Two cats with the Bootsie's Combination Scratcher

Bootsie's Combination Scratcher disclosure


Lola and I have a few scratchers around the house, and a couple of them have seen better days. Mother keeps saying she's going to replace them, but you know how humans can be - let's just say "forgetful." So I took matters into my own paws and partnered once again with our friends at Pioneer Pet. I chose to review the 
Bootsie's Combination Scratcher by SmartCat® because it can be used in more than one way.

Lola loves to scratch horizontally. I usually prefer a vertical scratcher, but I can go either way. Bootsie's Combination Scratcher satisfies both of our preferences.

If your cat is like Lola, this scratcher can lie flat on the floor. The rubber feet provide stability and prevent it from slipping.

It's also wall-mountable!

I love how versatile it is

Key Features

Let's take a look at some key features that make this scratcher just fabulous.

  • The rubber feet provide stability, so it doesn't slip and slide around on the floor. Lola and I can run towards it at full speed and it stays in place when we give it a good scratch. 
  • Overall it is heavy duty and built to last for several years.
  • The scratching surface is made of durably woven sisal, and encourages natural scratching!
  • The versatility makes it the perfect scratcher for any cat. If your cat likes to scratch vertically, the combination scratcher mounts easily onto a wall via the single keyhole slot on the back. (Screw, anchor, and instructions included.)
  • Measures a generous 24″x 7″x2.5″ to allow for plenty of scratching surface.

The Final Verdict

Lola and I give Bootsie's Combination Scratcher by SmartCat® a definite two paws up each. We both started scratching on it right away, and just love it. Right now we have it on the living room floor, but we have the purrfect spot on a wall where it would fit purrfectly. Lola and I are still in discussions about it.

  3. Pawsome giveaway! I usually go vertical, but sometimes I like to mix it up and do horizontal.

  4. That is a nice scratcher and a good size. Flynn was a horizontal scratcher and Eric did both.

  5. The cardboard scratchers that we have leave chunks of cardboard everywhere, so this one seems to be a better dealio! Da Boyz would use is horizontally, but for Sweetie, I'd set it up against the wall.

  6. That really is a pretty one but Simon eats the loose sisal things!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Oh wow, that looks pretty nice!

  8. Thanks for sharing your pawsome review with us. Our two little ones at home are in need of a new one. They have a cardboard one and it's on it's last life. But we will definitely check this out. Have a great rest of your week.

  11. That is a nice looking scratcher. Some of my cats like vertical and others, horizontal. :) XO

  13. One cat likes scratching vertically, and the other horizontally. They would love this!

  14. "Does your cat like to scratch vertically or horizontally?" My cat does both! She's very advanced!

    ReplyDelete
  15. My Kotoha likes to scratch. I think she mostly scratches vertically, although she will scratch horizontally, too.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ellie loves both orientations - she'll scratch both ways. But Bear definitely favors vertical - and not a scratching post. He actually loves that cosmic cardboard scratcher we won from you a year plus ago. No more furniture scratching!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Horizontally. You girls are so lucky.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh we like that one. Daiquiri likes a good horizontal scratcher and mom hates the cardboard pieces

    ReplyDelete
  19. We like the looks of this one as it has staying power. We have those disposable ones but Dad has been searching. Is this the one?

    ReplyDelete
  20. We're mostly vertical scratchers but sometimes we use the horizontal one too. It's good to have options!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That looks like a great scratcher. We have a feeling Ava would like it a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  22. From Toffee the Cat: That's nifty. I'm from the UK so couldn't enter the competition but I'm hoping my old woman might take the hint AND BUY ME ONE.

    ReplyDelete
  23. We have a vertical post and several horizontal cardboard scratchers. Unfortunately two of the cats - I won’t mention any names - like the carpet best!
    Maybe this horizontal carpet scratcher will solve the problem.

  24. All of my cats are mostly vertical scratchers.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My 3 cats love to scratch both vertical and horizontal with a slight preference for the vertical. Thanks for the chance, Dawn.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's a skinny scratcher. We make double-wide scratchers for comfort, and we'd need to make that one a triple or quadruple. But it looks very sturdy and scratchable.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Most of mine like to scratch vertically.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have two cats and they both like to scratch anyway they can!

    ReplyDelete

  34. My cat likes to scratch horizontally.

  35. I have 6 cats so I pretty much experience all types of scratching behavior and could really use this.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is one cool scratcher to go both ways! My cats like a mixture of both.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mr. Nix loves to scratch both vertically and horizontally. At 16 he scratches anywhere and anytime he chooses!

    ReplyDelete
  38. My cat scratches horizontally since he scratches at the carpet.

    ReplyDelete
  39. This actually made me think about it...all of the scratchers I've given her are vertical, so my initial answer was vertical. However, sometimes she scratches the bed, which is horizontal - maybe that is a sign that I should get her a horizontal scratcher? Definitely food for thought!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My cats like to scratch horizontally, vertically, diagonally, upsidedownally......

    ReplyDelete
  41. Two of them scratch predominantly horizontally, one vertically and the other one does both.

    ReplyDelete

  43. I have a multi-cat household, due to rescuing former feral cat/kittens and foster often, so the best answer would be both vertically and horizontally. Great review!(Tammy Horn)

    ReplyDelete
