So, I’ve been testing out the Boots & Barkley knock-off of the Moderncat Studio Scratch Tower and, as expected, their cheap cardboard is just that — cheap. Check out this comparison of the original Scratch Tower — one that has been in regular use for approximately 1 year — versus the B&B knock-off after just 2 weeks of regular use. I had the two side by side in the living room, and the cats used both equally. I won’t pretend that they like the original tower better, they don’t care, but I do, because with equal scratching, the Scratch Tower produces a fraction of the cardboard shreds compared to what the B&B scratcher leaves all over the floor.
I figured I’d see if the Scratch Tower refills fit the B&B scratcher and guess what? They do! So, feel free to purchase the original Scratch Tower refills from the Moderncat Studio Etsy shop to use with your Boots & Barkley knock-off. I’m cool with that.
