I have a couple of shapely cat scratchers in my room - one corregated cardboard scratcher is shaped like a couch, the other carpeted and sisaled, is shaped like a curly-q with an opening at the bottom and one at the top. I was watching my cat chase Da Bird the other day as I was swinging Da Bird over both of the scratchers and his tall scratching post, when it occurred to me how multi-functional these scratchers were....
Not that my cat doesn't climb his tall scratching post to catch Da Bird, but the two shapely floor scratchers that I bought to maintain the integrity of my bedroom design, actually provide him with lots of ways he can have fun. It's the nooks and crannies, places to hide, contrast of materials and surfaces, and even the perching and resting places from which he can awake to stretch his claws....
Here is a variety of design integrity preserving scratchers that have cat fun, variety, and comfort in mind.... They all come with cat nip, as if your cat needs encouragement!

Now here's a nice long lounge (23") , perfect for a nap, and what better cat enemy to erase with his claws but a little barking dog? Recycled and recyclable the Dachshund Paper Scratching Board can be purchased here.

But the cat image that's been cut out of the pyramid also comes with the Pyramid Scratching Post, so your kitty gets an extra 'cat' to scratch.
