Cats are wonderful animals but they do come with some undesirable habits, especially if you keep them indoors. The main problem is a cat needs to scratch in order to keep their claws nice and sharp, this is natural behaviour for your cat.
Unfortunately, your furniture and sharp claws don’t really go hand in hand. Usually, the furniture is the loser and will often be destroyed by your cat.
I’m speaking from personal experience here, my own cats have scratched a bed in our spare room and pretty much destroyed it.
There are quite a few ways to reduce this undesirable behaviour, by providing plenty of surfaces to scratch. These can be cat trees or cat scratchers.
Something I’ve found with most cat scratchers is that they have a (very) limited lifespan. I’ve lost count of the number of cardboard scratchers or cat trees my cats have worked their way through!
We trim their claws every month or so (usually when they become like razors) this, of course, reduces the impact they have.
PetFusion seem to have a strong, sturdy solution to this problem in the Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge
PetFusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge
The PetFusion ultimate cat scratcher lounge is a unique cat scratcher in quite a few ways.
Firstly, unlike most cardboard cat scratchers on the market that aren’t very durable and don’t stand the test of time the PetFusion ultimate cat scratcher lounge is made from premium recycled cardboard that is built to last and withstand the test of time.
Typically cat scratchers are pre-glued and are less durable as a result. The PetFusion ultimate cat scratcher is glued piece by piece which helps to build a more robust solution.
It’s also designed in a unique way so you cat can lay on it as a bed, you’ve probably noticed your cat loves to lay on things that are cardboard so this even doubles up as a bed.
Due to the size and shape, you can even hang these from the wall in your house and this then provides a safe area for your cat to sleep, scratch and rest.
Something I really like about this product is the fact that they’re stylish looking so they can fit in with your interior decor of your house. They’re available in 3 different colours cloud white, slate grey, walnut brown.
Another thing that I’m quite a stickler for is Eco-friendly products and the PetFusion ultimate cat scratcher doesn’t disappoint. It’s won numerous awards for being Eco-friendly due to the fact it’s made from recycled cardboard and glued with non-toxic corn starch glue.
It also comes with a 6-month warranty which gives you piece of mind. Something that’s worth noting is the product is also reversible so you get 2x the use.

If you’re looking for a cat scratcher that’s going to stand the test of time then you can’t go far wrong with this cat scratcher. When I was looking to buy a cat scratcher online this was one of the highest reviewed product on many sites with most reviews ranging from 4.5-5 stars out of 5.
Most people who’ve bought and reviewed this product have then gone on to buy multiple around the house. Obviously, things like repeat a buy after a few years shows that the product is quality and worth purchasing.
Compared to other scratchers on the market it could be deemed slightly more expensive but with this product, I believe you get what you pay for and this will outlast cheaper scratchers which in turn makes this a worthy investment.
The main thing that I like is that it can act as a bed for your cat to lay on and these can be hung up on the wall of your house or apartment and this then creates a nice area for your cat to climb and perch on.
I also like the fact that you can turn the scratcher over is if one side does wear down you can then just turn it to the other side and get more use out of it.
Overall it’s a well-designed product that’s worth the extra cost of a traditional scratcher in my opinion.
