Moderncat December Giveaway: NEW! SkratchKabin Cat Bed & Scratcher

Wed, Dec 1, 2010

Beds & Loungers, Giveaways, Scratching

In addition to the Holiday Give-a-thon, we still have our regular monthly giveaway, too! This month we’re introducing a brand new product from the folks who make the KatKabin. It’s the SkratchKabin! The SkratchKabin has the same dimensions and design as the original KatKabin, but the SkratchKabin is covered in durable carpet to give kitty a nice big curved surface for scratching, plus a cozy nest inside for napping. The SkratchKabin comes with a little toy hanger and a sisal rope mouse for extra fun.

There’s also a removable pad with a washable cover inside. The SkratchKabin is very sturdy and measures 20″ long by 16″ wide and 13″ tall. The door opening is 6.5″ x 7″. The SkratchKabin is available in three carpet colors, oatmeal, blueberry, and cocoa.

The folks at Brinsea sent us a SkratchKabin to test and — just as I expected — it was an immediate hit, especially with the cold weather upon us. It’s the perfect size and shape for kitties to curl-up for a winter nap and the curved, carpeted surface is immediately attractive to little scratchers. Plus the whole thing looks great. It’s just “kitty” enough without being too cutesy.


The December giveaway winner will receive a SkratchKabin in the color of their choice. To enter the monthly giveaway, make sure you’re signed-up to receive Moderncat updates via email. If you’re already getting the updates but you’d like an EXTRA chance to win this month, please leave a comment on this post. Complete details on the monthly giveaway here. The winner will be chosen in a random drawing on December 31. This giveaway includes free shipping to addresses in the US.

    Beautiful isn’t a word I would use to describe any other cat scratcher, but this is beautiful, a work of art and functional, all too rare. The designers clearly know their cats and have good eyes. Feline Friends would make their kitties in their no-kill shelter feel very much in the lap of luxury if they received one of these…

  25. 1375

    I would give it to Joey’s Feline Friends (

    My cats would LOVE this. Great products, keep up the good work!
    shelter of choice:

  41. 1391

    This is by far the chicest cat bed i’ve seen thus far. After raising 4 abandoned baby kittens that were going to be euthanized, I think this would be an adorable solution for them to have a place to sleep!

  42. 1392

    What an awesome idea!

  43. 1393

    This would be perfect for my cat. She needs a new place to scratch, that is not my new couch.

  44. 1394

    My kitties would LOVE<LOVE this. But I think I would give this to my Mom's kitty cats. They don't have anything even close to this wonderful scratcher, sleep spot, play house. It is REALLY nice!
    The charity would be the SPCA LA. They're always SO grateful for their "pets."

  45. 1395

    Wow, what a great prize! Would look great nearly anywhere, and cat friendly, too!

  47. 1397

    I have a small animal rescue (23 critters at the moment) and the cats that like to spend most of the time outdoors would love this to sleep in at night. I keep heat lamps on my front porch for them in the winter. What a great idea.

  48. 1398

    This one is one of the best I’ve seen. I love it and all of my 4 kitties would love it, just might have to buy 3 more!! LOL
