Chatting Cats: The Purrfect Solution for Your Cat’s Need to Scratch

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Have I’s got somethin’ fur you today. Dezi, did you see our new scratcher?

 

 Raena checks out the Cat Claws Butterfly scratcher

 

          Yep Raena, me saw it. Did you know that mommy was getting’ the company’s catalogs long befur we got a catputer? They have some really pawsum scratchers. Mommy says she ‘members when scratchers were purretty much all the company had.

 

 Cat Claws MAX Butterfly cat scratcher

 

Yeah sissy, I’s heard that. But she said they had some really cool scratchers compared to what was on the regular market. She said lots of ‘em looked like real live miniature furniture. They purretty much come in all shapes and sizes to fit any kitty out there. 

 

          Sure ‘nuff Raena. Cat Claws Inc. actually got started kinda like our bloggy…by a happy accident. Vietnam Vet, Mr. Bill Seliskar worked in the corrugated box industry and offen brought home samples.

 

Ya’ reckon he left ‘em lyin’ ‘round fur his wife Ms. Gale to clean up?

  

 Raena sits atop a box and plays with a treat

 

          Oh Raena, you’ve been watchin’ too much teevee. Me has no idea where Mr. Bill put the samples, but you know us kitties, we can sniff out a box a hunnerd miles away.

 

A hunnerd miles, sissy? Really? 

 

          Well, maybe not a hunnerd miles Raena, but we can find a box in our own house, that’s fur sure. And that’s exactly what happened. Mr. Bill and Ms. Gale’s kitties found those samples and went to town sharpenin’ their claws.

 

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. We received the Cat Claws MAX Butterfly cat scratcher in exchange fur our post and opinion. As always, we only tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be on interest to you, our readers and friends.

 

I’s bet Ms. Gale was happy to have those samples layin’ all over the house then. Y, Those samples purrobably saved her sofa. Ya’ know that turned her mad into glad.

          Seriously Raena, you gotta quit watchin’ so much teevee. Nopawdy ever said Ms. Gale was mad ‘bout havin’ those samples ‘round. Altho’ me’s sure she was happy the kitties were no longer tearin’ up her furniture. Ya’ know, humans can sure get beside themselves when we kitties sharpen our claws on their things. Anyways, bein’ so happy ‘bout their new found cat scratchin’ alternative, Mr. Bill and Ms. Gale set out to assemble some of those samples into the furst corrugated cardboard kitty scratchers. Back in 1986, their wasn’t a lot of scratchin’ options fur kitty pawrents.

 

That was way befur mine’s time, huh sissy?

(Dezi shakes her head and nods)

As all good things go, word got ‘round and peeps were knockin’ down the garage door tryin’ to get some of those scratchers Mr. Bill and Ms. Gale was makin’, right sissy? 

 

          Well Raena, there’s no evidence peeps were knockin’ down the garage door, but cat peeps sure did want a few of their own. After all, these were much more affurdable than what was already available. And believe it or not, there was a time when peeps didn’t spend much money on their kitties. Peeps had no idea we kitties need more than a box fur peein’ and food in a bowl.

OMC  I’s so glad mommy knows better. What kind’a life would that be? 

 

 

Back of Cat Claws MAX Butterfly Cat Scratcher,

Dat’s some serious glue they use. But it’s on da bottom and won’t be seen.

          Me can’t even ‘magine Raena, but me’s glad mommy knows better too. Anyways, the Cat Claws Scratching Pad became the furst corrugated cardboard scratcher available to the public. It was such a hit that in 1993 the business expanded. And in 2006, the furst “Scratch ‘n Shapes” came ‘bout. That would include those mini furniture scratchers. And in 2007, Cat Claws launched their new brand name, Imperial Cat.

 

Imperial Cat? OMC  We have lots of Imperial Cat stuffs sissy.

 

 Dezi sits on a box

 

          That we do Raena, that we do. Mr. Bill went to heaven in 2009 and Ms. Gale joined him in 2010; but the business stayed in the furmily. Their daughters, Ms. Ginger and Ms. Jill run Cat Claws today. And they’re still goin’ strong and makin’ great cat purroducts includin’ their signature purroduct, corrugated cat scratchers; just like the one they sent us.

Hey sissy? Did you know they give back too? They have a wooly white mousey called the Charity mouse. And fur every Charity Mouse purchased, $5.00 goes to help with spay and neuter and help get cats adopted. Cat Claws has all kinds of fun kitty toys, scratchers, NIP, beds, memorials, and so much more. They even have some purroducts fur the doggies. And all those cat scratchers are made right here in the good ole US of A.

          Cat Claws is purretty pawsum Raena. We were thrilled they contacted us and luv our new M.A.X. Butterfly scratcher which came with an ample nip packet, all made in the USA. It’s a nice size too. It’s 20 1/2” L X 9” W X 3 1/2” H, and comes in red or pink fur only $24.95. They do use a purretty strong glue to attach the description page with the retail bar code, but once you sit it down, ya’ won’t see the paper remnants cuz they’re on the bottom. 

 

 Raena ;ays on the butterfly cat scratcher

We were both rescued from bad situations and our mommy raised us and trained us to be service cats. I want this blog to be interactive and get to know all of you, so comment and visit often.

  1. Ooh… it’s a butterfly & red, too! I see butterflies out my window, but I’ve never seen one up real close. I like yours because it’s extra colorful. Mom likes it because it’s “functional & cute.” I have 2 scratchy boards in the house right by the sofa & a sisal scratchy post, so I don’t find the need to scratch the sofa. Humans need to make sure they give their kitties things that they can scratch if not their furniture, as it is natural for us to want to sharpen our claws. That is so cool that the scratchy company also has white mousies for charity! Hugs & luvs!

    Isn’t that a pretty scratcher!?!
    Our new doggy cousin would love to try and chew on it…but that at least is better than the table and chair legs he tried to sample,MOL!

    That is dedication on the part of the keeping going of the furmily business…making scratchers. Wonder what their next design might be?
