Scratch'N Slumber Comfort Center

Introducing a brand new product from a brand new company, check out the Scratch’n Slumber Comfort Center from Brawny Cat. This Washington state-based company knows what it takes to keep cats of all sizes lounging in comfort. They’ve packed all sorts of features into the Scratch’n Slumber, I guarantee it will be a hit.

First of all, the Brawny Cat doesn’t discriminate against full figured felines. The Scratch’n Slumber was created for a very special girl named Big Baby. Here she is modeling for us:

Big Baby

As you can see, Big Baby needs a little extra room to stretch out, so the folks at Brawny Cat created “The Big Baby” Scratch’n Slumber measuring 26.5″ wide and 23.5″ deep. This size is great for “full figured” cats as well as large breed cats. In addition to “The Big Baby”, they created four more sizes (shown below) so you can pick just the right size for your cat.


The Scratch’n Slumber isn’t just a bed, it’s a complete comfort center. The sturdy cedar frame holds a high quality cardboard “padlet” that cats absolutely love to rub, scratch, and nap on. The raised, curved sides provide extra support for kitty’s back and head and a great surface for scratching. Plus. kitty can peek out over the sides to attack unsuspecting siblings.

The cardboard used is very high quality and stands up to quite a bit of scratching, plus you can turn the padlet over when one side is worn and get twice the life out of it. A catch basin in the bottom of the frame holds loose cardboard and catnip. Read more about the features and benefits of the Scratch’n Slumber on the Brawny Cat website.

They sent us one to test and as you can see below, everyone loves. Every time I turn around, someone else is on the Scratch’n Slumber. I’ve moved it all over the house — on the catio, in the living room, in the office — and they always find it. I’ve even seen a little “king of the hill” action happening when it’s time to decide whose turn it is.

Scratch'N Slumber Comfort Center

Just for reference, this is the B’Tweener model. Left to right: Theo weighs about 17 lbs.; Simba weighs 9 lbs.; and Flora weighs 6 lbs. (she’s tiny). That’s Ando in the top photo and he weighs about 15 lbs.

The Scratch’n Slumber cedar platforms are all handcrafted in Washington state using Western red cedar. Each one is hand-sanded and constructed without glues or stains, just natural cedar.

The Scratch’n Slumber Comfort Centers sell for $169 to $189 US, depending on the size. Replacement padlets are available for $59 to $79.

    Great to see a product that accommodates large breed cats. My Maine Coons give it the thumbs up!

  2. 652

    This is awesome and big enough to fit some of my bigger kiffens which is rare. I love it!

    My big lump of a cat (lol) would enjoy the big baby. She sprawls out all over the place.

  4. 654

    Love this – looks like the cats would too. I’d go with the Big Baby Jr.

  5. 655

    How fabulous! I really like all the different size options. I would get the “B’Tweener” for my kitty.

  6. 656

    i would go for the 26.5 wide size with 16.5 front to back (b’tweener), since my cat is not too heavy, but he’s very very long and he love to stretch out. such a great idea.

  7. 657

    Oh my goodness. What my cats wouldn’t give for one of these. Surely a meal’s worth of cat food, and all the extra cat fur anyone could ever want…

  8. 658

    I only wish they made one in my size …

  9. 659

    Big Baby all the way for our 3 cats! Very neat idea.

  10. 660

    I love the scratch ‘n go its perfect to put on my desk so my kitty can take a nap right by my side.

  11. 661

    The range of sizes is great, as one size never fits all, be it for cats or people! The B’Tweener would be perfect for Sparky. The color would blend nicely with my wood floors, eliminating visual clutter.

  12. 662

    my 2 new kitties will LOVE that!!

  13. 663

    My big cat, Ivan, doesn’t fit well on standard cat furniture. In addition, we live in Tucson where a cat must sprawl quite a lot to stay cool. He loves the cardboard scratchy stuff and he loves looking good; the Scratch n’ Slumber Comfort Center looks like a dream come true.

  14. 664

    This looks interesting and wonder if my little 10 pound (former rescue cat)Squeaky would like the wood surface. You never know – I bought the sleepy pod (saw it on Modern Cat) he ignored for a month and now he sleeps in it all day! He would love the Big Baby coz he likes to rest his chin on something when he sleeps :)

  15. 665

    wow, these look great! I know my Monty and Maia would love this scratcher :) B’Tweener looks awesome.

  16. 666

    What a beautiful piece of furniture! We foster cats so since we have so many coming and going, I guess I would have to say the big baby since all of our lovely cats come in so many shapes and sizes and we wouldnt want any of them to miss out on it!

  17. 667
    Debra M

    I feel the horizontal plane calling my name!

  18. 668

    Nice simple piece of kitty furniture! It’s great to see something designed for cats of all sizes. My cat would definitely love one of those Big Baby Jr. The model kitties looks so comfy ~~~

  19. 669

    I’d either get the Betweener or the Big Baby. Even though my cat is only 10 lbs, he always likes to stretch out when he sleeps/lounges.

    This is a great looking item!

  20. 670

    I would prob pick the Baby Boy Jr. I think its great they have all the sizes. Don’t know if my big fluffernutter would sleep on it, but worth a shot. LOVE the fact that it has a catch basin. Less cleaning = happy momma.

  21. 671

    Looks really cute. The kitties would love.

  22. 672

    Love the design & especially the “bolsters” – hey, cats like pillows too! My cats would probably prefer the wider 26.5″ styles so they’d have plenty of room to stretch out.

  23. 673

    our 24 year old cat would love to have a Scratch’n Slumber!

  24. 674

    My cats would LOVE this!! What a great product!

    This is a very clever design. I like the simplicity and how it evokes fruffier (sp?) people furniture. My little guy is 7 yrs old, but only about 7 lbs so I think he’d really like the Scratch’n Go or the Start’M Up. He already loves to lay on his scratch boards but this product would rock his little world.

  27. 677

    These look awesome! What a great idea! My Angel would love for me to win one :)

    steph m.

    i love these Scratch n’ Slumber loungers and i’m sure my cat Houston would too! the range of sizes is just brilliant. even though my cat is pretty large, i think he would prefer the B’Tweener because he likes to cram himself into small places!

  29. 679

    These are handsome and practical! With 5 cats, I’d pick the Big Baby. I love these!

  30. 680

    Our cats love our cardboard scratchers, they’d absolutely go crazy over these beds!

  31. 681

    I have a dozen kitties who would just love to cuddle on one of these!

  32. 682

    Scratch N Slumber is so cute! Looks like a “kitty” crib. And with the variety of sizes, it would fit my variety of cats…or they could slumber together ^..^

  33. 683

    The b’tweener looks like a really good size. I wouldn’t want to go any larger than that.

    Great idea!

  34. 684

    I love this. My 3-3 weighs 17 pounds!

  35. 685

    Well! My cats are both less than 10 pounds, but they like to stretch and take their ease. I’m sure the B-Tweener would make them happy each in turn.

  36. 686
    Alisa Jane

    OH MY GOSH!!! This is an incredibly wonderful kitty product. My “large-boned, full-figured” fluffy girl Lily would absolutely adore it for both scratching and sleeping. Great item, purrfect design!

  37. 687

    So beautiful, I love these!

  38. 688

    Love it. I’ve got a few cats that would love to give it try.

  39. 689

    Awwwww, that’d be perfect for my chubby kitty!

  40. 690

    My big boy Norton would think that this is the “cats meow”!!!

  41. 691
    Darrell Becker

    They look great. Winning cat should be pleased.

  42. 692

    My guys would love the B’Tweener! Chester might be able to use it a few times before Catsby claimed ownership.

  43. 693
    Michelle N

    This is so beautiful. I just wish it came in different colors. My cat would love this!

  44. 694

    This is definitely a must have for my finicky girls; esp my senior ladies who spend most of their time entwined; only the largest one would satisfy them!

  45. 695
    Robin Fiedler

    ANYTHING that would keep my cats from scratching furniture or carpeting would be a blessing! I actually think my cats would really love this. I have four cats. Three of them love to sleep together, so I’d have to go with The Big Baby. I think it’s genius that the company offers such a variety of sizes!

  46. 696
    Babs (formerly Kush's Human)

    Fantabulous! Love everything about this. I’ve been frustrated because Kush really likes to stretch himself out when lounging and nothing, until this, is long enough. And I love the idea of the catch basin, as we always end up with ‘nip on the floor. Since we need a long model, I’d have to say the Betweener or the Big Baby. The Betweener is a little narrow, so we’d opt for the Big Baby. I just hope Kush doesn’t see it as a license to grow into it!

  47. 697

    these are cool. i think the bigger the better, but it also depends on space considerations and where it would reside. i’d probably like the b’tweener, because my two cats don’t share very well.

  48. 698
    Faridah Huller

    My long haired kitty Maine-Coon-like cat, one of my four cats, would really enjoy this bed as she doesn’t not have many nooks and crannies she can call her own. She is very aloof and doesn’t like to share with other kitties and because of her size, she only mainly lounges on the dining table!

  49. 699

    What a great idea.
