My boys, Bentley and Avery, have been loving these cardboard cat couches since the first time I found them back in 2015.
Now, my technical term is actually “meowches” because that sounds way cooler than cat couches.
Each meowch comes with a pack of catnip…which is guaranteed to make your kitty fall in love with the scratcher. Or just get really cat high.
The arms of the meowch and back are scratchable, as well as the actual portion that is meant for the kitty to lay on.
The corrugated cardboard material is a great consistency that helps keep your kitty’s claws in pristine condition! Not to mention it looks pretty neat in your house, too!
The Super Meowch
If your kitty is a bit bigger (both of my boys are 12 pounds and fit comfortably in one meowch) or if you simply want to give your cat more lounging space, you have two options.
One is to create a super meowch by combining two meowches. After the first time Nick and I did this, we never went back. The boys are obsessed with the super meowch.
Sometimes Avery uses it all to himself, as seen below. You can see how much they scratch the arms, this seems to be their favorite spot to scratch.
And yes, this is a super meowch within a big box with another box for them to lay in it right beside it. #spoiledcats
Sometimes both boys decide they are going to relax in it at the same time.
This doesn’t happen often because Avery really does like to monopolize the super meowch any chance he gets.
Another option is to go with more of a lounger option. This cat lounger is great for kitties who like to sprawl out a little bit more.
Thanks to the kitties “auntie” Stace, a version such as the one pictured above came as a Christmas gift to the boys.
They adore the lounger but I wouldn’t say they prefer one over the other. The meowches still get just as much attention as the “meownger” now gets!
Important note: This lounger does not come with catnip. If you have some catnip, you can still sprinkle it in, though!
Out of all of the scratching posts and pads, these have been a true hit and they haven’t gotten tired of them, which is huge. If you’re a cat mom or cat dad, you know how big of a feat that is.
