Products that have multiple uses are fantastic as they give value for money as well as lots of interest. When I saw the Petfusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher I actually could not decide whether it was actually a cat scratcher or a lounging bed. So I did the obvious thing and let my two cats decide how they wanted to use it.
Well, they actually decided to use it both ways. Sometimes they use it as a horizontal scratching post and at other times you see them stretched out fast asleep on it.
What is the PetFusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge?
The Pet Fusion Cat Scratcher Lounge is a custom designed product for cats to have multiple uses. It is made from recycled corrugated cardboard so great for the environment. And cats love cardboard – after all how often do you buy a toy and your cat loves the box.
Corrugated cardboard is very strong and the layers are joined together using a non-toxic corn starch glue. So perfectly safe for kitty. To finish off the stylish look the sides of the scratcher are finished with a premium satin cardboard siding.
The PetFusion scratcher is created with a curved top and bottom which allows cats to lounge and relax. If one of the sides becomes more used then it can also be turned over – so you get double the usage. However, the cardboard is very hardwearing and strong so this scratcher will last a long time.
At 34 inches in length, this is also perfectly fine for larger cats. The dimensions are 34 inches in length, 10.5 inches high and 1o.5 inches in width.
Will Your Cat Like This Horizontal Scratcher?
To encourage cats to start using this PetFusion scratcher, it does come with catnip leaves. You can also use a catnip spray if you find that the leaves come off. But, many cats do like horizontal cat scratchers as well as vertical ones. They do give your cat a good muscle workout whilst having a great stretch.
The shape of this scratcher also encourages your cat to just lounge and sleep on it. And it keeps your cat off the floor when sleeping so that in summer they can feel cooler as the air flows under them. In the winter it will keep your cat off the colder floor and therefore they will be more snug.
Cats seem to love natural products such as cardboard. Therefore, they really do seem to love cardboard scratchers.

I’ve never owned a cat — but if I did this cat scratcher would be something I would love to buy it.
I love how you can hang it on your wall and basically put it anywhere to save space in your home. I imagine this really comes in handy if you are living in a small apartment too.
Do you own one of these — if not do you think you might buy one in the future?
thanks for the comments – I actually have a couple of these. Most of the products on this site I try out, as most of my friends and family have cats so they also act as guinea pig
what a fantastic Product. I love the modern / Futuristic look of it! I also love the dual use it provides.
Our little kitty is getting too big now for the scratching post we bought when we got her. We are looking for a suitable upgrade and this looks great.
What is the Durability like? will it last a good few years?
durability of this product is actually very good – after well over a year one side had light wearing to the cardboard. But you get double the life as you can then turn it over as both sides are for scratching
