Simple Cat Scratcher Incline from Way Basics

 


Hi everyone! Today it's me, Roary pawing on the computer, and I think this just might be my FIRST product review that I am doing ALL BY MYSELF! Now don't get me wrong, the kitty that came bbefore me, (and who this blog is dedicated to, Cody, did MANY product reviews, this is just the first one for ME!) I'm excited, but I have some pretty big paws to fill...  here goes!

 Mom was given the opportunity to have me try a Cat Scratcher from a company called Way Basics and she said because I am a HUGE fan of Cat Scratchers, she would let me try it out.

It arrived a few days ago,  and when it arrived, being an extremely curious and intelligent kitty, I had to check it out myself.

There were just a few pieces to put together and some clear instructions.
Mom and I love that Way Basics believes in "keeping things easy and simple." That translates to not having a zillion pieces and parts to put together! We also love that they are an "eco company" and a "green company."

FROM THE WAYBASICS WEBSITE: "This is a Cat Scratcher with a twist, or should we say, an incline! This black Cat Scratcher is up on an incline and looks great against any wall in your house. It’s stylish and made from zBoard, an eco-friendly material that is safe for your home and your cat."

Mom and I love how you can either stand the scratcher up or lay it down. Unfortunately, because of the Giant Sheltie that I live with, I can't use the scratcher in the living room (he would think it was lunch!!). For now, I am using it in Mom and Dad's bedroom where MANY of my other toys are. There isn't a ton of free wall space there, and Mom didn't stand it up against the cabinet yet, so there are no photos of me using it standing up. I use mine with the scratcher laying down and I love it just the same! It's super versatile to have a scratcher that can stand up OR lay down!

When mine arrived I couldn't wait for Mom to put it together, it was so easy that even I could have put it together WITHOUT NEEDING THUMBS!!

In the above photo it was almost ready!!!

 "Way Basics black Simple Cat Scratcher Incline is a smart and effective way to help your cat lose the urge to scratch the furniture while helping to trim their nails at the same time. This isn’t your average cat scratcher as it is on an incline that cats love and it even can blend into any room and look like a beautiful piece of furniture! This product is made out of zBoard, a sustainable and strong patented material that is eco-friendly and safe for your home. Way Basics uses a 3M industrial adhesive instead of hardware. which means no tools are required."

Contains 1 scratch pad
Safe for your pet
Organic catnip included

I LOVED the organic catnip that was included. Mom sprinkled it on top. That's mostly for kitties that AREN'T naturally curious like I am! I would have checked it out regardless, but Mom put the catnip on just to be safe. I loved that nip so much that I started licking it! (that's why in some photos you see some wetness on the scratcher, that's from my over zealous licking!)





I was pretty darned intrigued!

As I mentioned above, I tend to lay down when I am scratching, I do that much more than scratching when I am standing, but Mom and I are happy that because this scratcher has an incline enabling it to  stand up against a wall or furniture, that we can change it up depending on my mood! HAVING A SCRATCHER THAT IS VERSATILE is PAWTASTIC!!


I just love this scratcher!!



 Kitties, I think you need to get one of these scratchers ASAP! They are super affordable and versatile! You will have LOTS AND LOTS of fun scratching! 

CONNECT WITH WAY BASICS:

Now if you will excuse  me I am beat from all of that scratching!!! I'm gonna take a nap now. Oh and if you were wondering, (because of the FTC rules, whatever that is, Mom just told me I have to mention this), I wasn't given any compensation for this post. I received the scratcher simply because I'm so cute (well, that's what Mom said, but that isn't the truth). The truth is I was not compensated with human money, cat food, treats or removing the Giant Sheltie from our home. I was sent the scratcher in exchange for my honest opinion. That's because I'm an intelligent sort.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Thanks Way Basics!

Love, Roary

  16. This is a great review, Roary.
    You also did a very nice job of modeling with the product :)
    Emily would like this scratchy post because it can be slanted in a vertical position. Of course, this reminds her of the arm of the couch!

  20. Excellent job with your review, Roary! We liked the part about your overzealous licking of the catnip. MOL.

    That's great that you had have it vertical or flat. Because different kitties have different preferences, right?

    Hugs!

  21. First of all, Roary, you have beautiful markings. We think your cat scratcher is Wonderpurr. We have one that is much loved, and getting ready for the trash. We plan to present your review to our meowmy and get her to buy it for us. Great job reviewing! Love that the scratcher can be changed to suit our purrrsonalities. Love ya! Herman and Dori
