Cat Product Review/Give-Away! SkratchKabin™ from KatKabin®

 SkratchKabin™ from KatKabin® 

"The Purrfect Cat Bed and Cat Scratcher!"


Hi my furiends!! It's Cody! I couldn't be more excited that you stopped by today!!

For the longest time Mom and I have been lusting after the KatKabin®  and the SkratchKabin™  's that we would see on a number of our furiends blogs. Mom knew that I would love one, so as luck stalking would have it, Mom connected with KatKabin® on Instagram and they offered me the chance to review either the traditional KatKabin® or the NEW SkratchKabin™!!! 

About KatKabin®:


 "The original KatKabin® DezRez is designed and made by Brinsea Products.  It is a fun yet practical shelter for your cats, and can be used indoors and outdoors.  It was developed by designer Trevor Hudson in conjunction with advice from the Brinsea cats, Chas, Cleo and Astra."

"The original KatKabin® was designed by a Hungarian innovator called Elvira Brocher to answer some of the challenges of owning a cat today. Many working owners worry about their cat when it is outside during the day, particularly if the weather is bad." 


"Elvira developed the KatKabin® to solve these problems by creating a special space in a garden, patio or balcony where your cat can be safe and secure. The design of the KatKabin® has evolved over the last year, but the concept of providing your fabulous feline with a safe place to shelter, nap and relax is still the same.  The KatKabin® will quickly become part of your pet’s life and, as it is easy to move, can also be used when away from home, in a cattery or on holiday."


Mom and I chose the NEW SkratchKabin™ because it is intended for use indoors. I also was given my choice of colors and Mom and I chose the 
The day my SkratchKabin™ arrived I knew the second I saw the box that something special was inside!


I was beside myself with excitement! Mom could not take it out of the box fast enough! Mom was shocked because unlike most items that arrive for me that takes me days, even weeks to check out, that was NOT the case with my SkratchKabin™ !! I IMMEDIATELY went inside and started investigating!





It must have had some kind of a smell that I liked because I just couldn't get enough of it!


The SkratchKabin™ that I received is  a lovely dark brown. (There are color variations in my photos due to lighting changes in the room and photo editing). It is  designed to blend in with any interior. Our living room is primarily earth tones (browns, olive green, tan, etc.) so it fits in purrfectly! It is a great size too! The overall dimensions are : L 20 " (51cm)  x W 16" (40.5cm)  x H 13" (32cm) and it fits quite nicely right next to one of our couches and is completely unobtrusive.


Can you see my nose and whiskers peeking out?



The SkratchKabin™  is a  warm and cozy place for me to sleep. I can scratch it if I want to, the curved, textured scratching surface is wonderful for my manly claws! I don't normally scratch our furniture, but for kitties who are inclined to do that, this is the purrfect alternative to ripping to shreds one of your humans' favorite chairs or couches!


The SkratchKabin™ is available in 3 gorgeous colors and comes complete with a machine washable KatKushion, (that is the green pad you see me sitting on in the photos), it is super comfy. It also comes with  a FREE toy hanger and a FREE sisal mouse!! (I did not hang my sisal mouse because Dakota hangs out in the living room with me and Mom was afraid he might try and eat the mousie. Also, I didn't need to use the mouse as encouragement to use the SkratchKabin™ because I liked it on my own!) But it IS cute and I can play with it in another room.

I LOVE my SkratchKabin™ even MORE than Mom thought I would! There is NOTHING that I would change about it and I give it a resounding FOUR PAWS UP!!


I love to hang out here and just watch my Sheltie brother doing the crazy things that he does. It also offers me a great haven to escape to so that I can get away from his maddening barking!!! Speaking of Dakota, has anyone seen him?

He doesn't seem to be over there, or over here.............


Wait! I think I see him!! I must tell you quickly that our friends at KatKabin® are allowing us to do a give-away!!!! Isn't that the best news? The give-away is open to those who live in the U.S., CANADA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM!!! Woooooooo hoooooo!!!!!! ONE WINNER CAN CHOOSE  either the original KatKabin® or the new SkratchKabin™ !!!!  (An approximate $99 value!!) Entering is super easy, just enter on the Rafflecopter below, good luck!!!

In full disclosure: I was not compensated for this review/give-away. I was sent a SkratchKabin™ in exchange for my always honest review.

  5. We love our KatKabin! Since we reviewed one of these last year, we aren't entering, but if we had it to do over again, we would have reviewed the outdoor version, even though we are using it indoors. We don't use the carpet for scratching, and the outdoor ones are such gorgeous colors!

    1. the indoor ones are great colors too! I linked to them above. I chose the brown because of the colors in our living room. Since Cody is an indoor cat we only wanted the indoor one, for kitties who go out the outdoor one is a great option!
