The Cat Claws’ M.A.X. Butterfly Cat Scratcher (spon)




Back in April we were contacted and offered to review the Butterfly Scratcher from Cat Claws. They sent me a free scratcher in exchange for a review.

I will admit, there is a reason for the delay in the review. No one wanted to use it. It sat unattended for months. No one showed the least amount of interested in it and I was lamenting what I was going to do. Then one day it was picked up to clean the floor and it fell over upside down. Since no one cared one iota about the product, I didn't think to turn it over.. in fact my initial thought was I should probably donate it to the shelter and take photos of it with shelter kitties.

A while later I turned around and found that someone really likes it upside down.


He often spent time on it instead of the really comfy giraffe bed that Miss Julie from Cats Herd You sent him.


He also didn't care where it was, he sought it out to sit on it quite regularly.


My cats all seem to prefer scratching on the tall cat trees I have scattered around the house - well that and the carpeted cat stairs we made years ago - I know that not all cats have the same preference and providing different options and offering different methods that allow them to cater to their needs will protect their owners homes and sofas and other items.  Sometimes, just providing them a new thing to investigate or to sleep on is enough to add enrichment to their life and bring some interest to their day - which is always a good thing.

  1. Yeah, sometimes we kittehs just want it OUR way. We're glad some one there decided it was worthy. For today!

  2. Good boy Jack....keep the momma guessing. We love cardboard scratchers here. (Especially some cat with a racing stripe who likes to take them apart)

  3. That's funny. My cats enjoy cardboard scratcher/loungers and rarely scratch their perches. Like you said - personal preference. It's true that sometimes just moving something makes it much more interesting.

  4. Jack is gorgoues!
    It's just like them to be a teeny bit difficult :)
    I wonder if my Winston kitty would like this scratcher? He ignores the three I have placed around the apartment and likes to scratch the carpet (NOOOOOOO!)
    I must have a look around for one like this!

  9. Well, now I have an idea--turn something upside down if they don't use it! Glad it's a new favorite.

  11. Oh my! I missed a Jack post...shame on me! The weekends are just too busy these days. But, it's funny that Jack didn't like the scratcher until it was turned upside down! Goes to show what a character Jackie is!
