Kitty likes to scratch, and this week’s Friday Freebie lets her do exactly that without destroying your furniture. The Kittyblock features corrugated fiberboard and nontoxic starch-based adhesive, and its open-cube design provides plenty of suitable surface area for scratching, as well as for playing and lounging.
Check out product testers Banjo and Blossom demonstrating Kittyblock’s awesomeness:
Banjo and Blossom belong to Kittyblock designer Paul Roberts and his wife, Lindsey, who own a cardboard company in Michigan. Paul created the recyclable cube to fill the gap between too-small scratch pads and overly pricey cat furniture. He also wanted to keep his cats from scratching what they shouldn’t — plants don’t last long in the Roberts home.
With that in mind, let’s hear your tales of destruction. What have your feline family members scratched or outright shredded with their claws? The readers with the three best stories win a Kittyblock each! Please provide photos if you have them.
