BRAND NEW! Eco-friendly Bergan Pulp Scratch Lounger Plus BONUS GIVEAWAY

Bergan Pulp Scratch Lounger

One of the new products that I found at the the SuperZoo Pet Expo last month is the new eco-friendly pulp scratch lounger from Bergan Pet Products. As you can see, Ando is enjoying the lounger that Bergan sent us to test out. He approves.

This unique scratcher/lounger is made from paper pulp, like the kind of material egg crates are made of. It’s no wonder Ando loves the lounger, egg crates are one of his most favorite things! He loves to chew them to bits and shoot little pieces all over the place. Because of that, I was worried that he would immediately destroy the Bergan lounger, but he only took one little bite (he has to taste everything), then settled down to enjoy the curvy lounging surface. I think he has a little more respect for it that he would have for a plain old egg crate.

Bergan Pulp Scratch Lounger

So there are some really exciting things about this product. First, it is the perfect size for the cats to sit on (as Ando demostrates) and the textures seem to be really attractive to cats. Second, it is an extremely eco-friendly product. The paper pulp is made from 100% postconsumer waste, which, according to Bergan, is “fiber from paper that has been used for its intended end purpose, including office waste paper, magazines, and newsprint.” Did you know that forty percent of garbage is paper? That’s a lot of material that can be diverted from the landfill to make these scratchers! And Bergan assures us that the scratcher/lounger is made using no harmful glues or chemicals. And finally, another super-terrific thing about this product — it’s $9.99! I’m not sure they are going to be able to make these fast enough.

I think the natural eco-friendly texture of paper pulp and the simple lines of the scratcher/lounger would fit in nicely with any decorating style, especially an eco-chic mod interior. At this price, even if the cats shred the thing in a couple of months, it’s easy to toss it in the recycling bin and get a replacement.

UPDATE: Now available from Amazon for just $9.99.


But have no fear, I’ve got not one, but FIVE Bergan pulp scratch loungers to giveaway! Please leave a comment on this post with your thoughts on the new pulp lounger and you’ll be entered to win. Five winners will be chosen in a random drawing on October 19 and notified via email. This giveaway is limited to addresses in the US and Canada.

    This is the best lounger ever. Now the question will be how to keep a much bigger dog from wanting to recline on it as well.

    This looks awesome! We have an old futon mattress from before we got our new bed, and it makes an awesome playspace for them. I can only imagine that they’d think this would be even cooler!

  11. 11

    I’m always looking for eco conscious products for my girls…looks fascinating!

  12. 12

    Oh yes, we need one of those right away. Love the idea!!

  13. 13

    This looks really neat. My cats already love playing in the cardboard boxes and these are more ergonomic and free of heavy dyes

    I know 4 kitties in Vegas that would love to do some quality control for this lounger.

  15. 15

    Oh,I can see where my cats would love this! Plus the price is incredibly reasonable! Very cool find!!

  16. 16

    Looks so comfy I might wanna lounge on it myself! My cats LOVE these things!

  17. 17

    I think my kitteh would enjoy climbing all over this little contraption!

  18. 18

    I have a Havana Brown who looks just like the model. I’m sure mine would like it, too.

  19. 19

    very intriguing…:)

  20. 20

    this looks amazing! eco and scratch friendly–what more could a girl ask for?

  21. 21

    WOW that is such a cool scratcher. My 5 kitties would love to fight over this scratcher!

  22. 22

    My cats always seem to enjoy the least likely thing in the house. Something tells me they’d love the lounger.

    Chomps would love this! And it would save my cardboard box stash in the closet.

  24. 24

    If Ando approves you know it’s got to be good. I’d love to have one (or two, for two kitties).

  25. 25

    OMC! My sister and I would LOVE a scratchie lounge like this! I hope we win! (I’d even let my sister use it sometiemz. Really!)

    how can you go wrong for $9.99? and ando make everything look like a million bucks. ; )

  28. 28

    What a great product! I love the design and the fact that it’s eco-friendly. My cats would love this more than I do, they live to scratch things.

  30. 30

    I LOVE it!! I know my kitties would too! :)

  31. 31

    My babies would love this. I have several cats(8)who love to have a variety of choices when it comes to their chill out time. Some prefer being high on top of one of the trees or even higher on top of cabinets, however, some like to be close to the ground. I hope to win one of these because I am confident it would be a major hit with the kits.

  32. 32

    It looks like it might be fun upside down as well…

  33. 33

    My cat Max (a.k.a. Evil Moshee) looks JUST LIKE the one pictured! Awesome!

  34. 34

    Looks great. We have another curved lounger that I originally saw on moderncat ( that our cats love, and the price is definitely right.

  35. 35

    I think it is very clever, but I wonder if my kitties will like it. They’re suspicious of anything I bring home for them except boxes, but this IS a box…

    I shall hope to wait and see!

  36. 36

    Sid would love to shred the heck out of this thing – and I’d be happy to toss it in the recycle bin for reincarnation! Very cool.

    jenn b.

    very cool! i’m curious how my kitties would react to it…more of a lounge chair or would they use it as it is intended…

  38. 38

    Oh wow I didn’t even realize it was made from paper pulp at first until I read it was made from the same material as egg cartons.

    I can just see my cats rubbing their faces on the grooves on this and fighting over who gets it next.
    I wish these were in stores out here, I’d surely pick up a couple of them.

  39. 39

    Eee! What a fun design! Comfy looking and charming. :)

    My 2 formerly feral rescue kittehs would love to have something like this to play with.

  42. 42

    When I read that 40% of garbage is paper, I thought, “wow”, but then thought about my own trash and would totally agree. What a great product that can use our leftovers and turn it into wonderful and so inexpensive kitty beds/playstations.

  43. 43

    It is good that you are able to choose eco-friendly products for cats too. This would be lovely to win.

  44. 44

    My cats would love to dig their talons into this!

  45. 45

    That’s awesome and would go great in my new house! :-)

    I bet our cats would prefer this to my favourite chair… Or at least I hope.

    Question: when will it be available in Canada?

  47. 47
  48. 48

    Looks very comfy – I am sure my cats would love one:-)

  49. 49

    Purrrrrrrr – looks grrrrrrrrrrreat!
