I don’t know about your cats, but my Ando will devour an entire live catnip plant if given the chance (then promptly throw it all right back up. Sigh.) So when I saw this cool new scratching post, I was intrigued. It’s the Scratch ‘n Sniff Live Catnip Scratching Post, a beautiful eco-friendly sisal scratching post that contains a live catnip plant safely inside, just out of kitty’s reach. The scent of the catnip will entice kitty to investigate and scratch. This should keep Ando entertained for hours!
This very clever invention is from the folks at Huge 4 Design LLC in Seattle, Washington. Sustainable manufacturing and eco-friendly materials are a top priority for these designers, and it shows in the Scratch ‘n Sniff. They use renewable, formaldehyde-free wood products, all natural sisal, and vegan wood glue to create their products. The catnip plant even comes in a rice hull pot with non-toxic water-based sealant.
The Scratch ‘n Sniff comes with your choice of two different sisal surfaces, natural or spice. You can order it with a live plant, or with a grow-your-own catnip kit. Replacement sisal scratch pads are also available to extend the life of the scratcher.
If you’re worried that your cat might knock over the Scratch ‘n Sniff to get at the catnip, check out the video below to see just how sturdy it is. It looks like it can really stand-up to a rigorous workout. (If you can’t see the video below in your email, click here to watch it on the site.)
