Valentine’s Day is coming up and you probably have some feelings about it. For example,

  • You might hope your partner doesn’t forget it
  • You’re praying that  you don’t forget it
  • You think the whole thing is a sham because you’re single
  • You’re too busy to care either way
  • ????

You might not be thinking about your pets, but I’m here to tell you that’s WRONG! LOL

Our furry friends like gifts, too, and they can make a day special just by being there for us. To recognize this fact, Imperial Cat, which makes awesome cats toys and scratchers, has come up with some Valentine’s Day-themed scratchers in their Scratch ‘N Shape line. You can see some of the options at the Imperial Cat site. You can also see an example of their themed stuff on Facebook!

I was sent the Vday-themed Ladybug, which is actually a 2-for-1 scratcher. It’s based on this red ladybug, but mine is pink with hearts. Aww!

Inside a larger cardboard scratcher is another that you can pull out. It’s ideal if you’ve got multiple cats, but it’s also great if you simply want to prolong the fun. My cats definitely prefer the larger one, which is taller and has more of an angle along the curved top. They climb right up and reach down the other side to scratch with claws and stretch their back. I think I will save the smaller one for when the larger one is all used up.

The scratchers are made from corrugated cardboard, which kitties just love. The top, bottom and cutout on insides are all scratchable; although, I doubt most cats will reach in it. Smaller cats might actually fit inside but mine won’t.

They also come with catnip, which Phantom could smell as soon as I opened the box. He jumped in it, on top of the wrapped scratcher, broke through with claws and teeth and started scratching while tearing open the cat nip. I think you can say he likes it!

Of course, you’ll want to sweep up the cardboard that “sheds” from these toys over time, but I’d much rather do that than have to replace furniture!

Both Phantom and Goliath enjoy this scratcher, and you can pick it up from retailers like Amazon just in time for Valentine’s Day. Check out Cat Claws for the MAX Purrfect Scratcher. Imperial Cat items are also sold in local retailers, which you can look up here.

One lucky reader of Reviews by Cole will win a holiday cat kit by Imperial Cat, which just might include a scratcher with other goodies.

Each gift set includes an arsenal of feline favorites, including a holiday themed, eco-friendly scratcher, plus a toy, a wand, certified organic catnip, and organic oat grass. And just like all Imperial Cat products, these all-in-one kits encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.

If you and your kitty are interested, log in to the Gleam form below to sign up. Come back every day for more entries!

Good luck!

    My new kittens would love the cheese shaped scratcher because they can get each other through the holes with their legs. The rest of my crew would like the Catit catnip self groomer, they rub on everything and they’re medium to long hair – it’s perfect!
