This post is for all of you who adore your cats, but dislike the destruction that seems to come with the territory when you have furry children.
I stumbled upon this little beauty while perusing the house tours on AT. It was tucked away in a corner in one of the shots, but I was able to make out the words "Scratch Lounge" written on the side.
Stella (below) really likes the vertical scratch post we have, but I think she enjoys the arms of the couch even more. Princeton (first photo), however, never warmed up to it.

I thought I would give the lounge a try, hoping it would be a hit and serve as a distraction from other things like the couch and the kitchen chairs I toiled away reupholstering. The top picture says it all: SUCCESS!
My two babies have been fighting over this since it arrived in the mail a few weeks ago. I just might have to invest in a second to keep them both happy. An added bonus; very little scratching of our furniture has occurred since!
Long story short, I would highly recommend the "lounge" to anyone who has destructive furry children. It's only natural for kitties to scratch, and this gives them a great place to do it (and nap, too).
