A Novel Green Way to Help Your Local Cat Shelter

Here’s a fun way to give to your local animal shelter and you’ll know the cats will directly benefit from your gift. How? Give the gift of eco-friendly cat scratchers made by Imperial Cat.

Adopt-Me-Scratchers-300x186You may know Imperial Cat for their fanciful cat scratchers such as this Orca Cat Scratch n Shape, but they recently came out with a new line specifically for shelter cats. Scratch ‘n Bits feature the same durable scratching surface as the higher end Scratch ‘n Shapes, but at a significantly lower price. And for the month of June, you can donate a case of 20 Scratch ‘n Bits directly to your favourite animal shelter for only $20.

Imperial Cat generously sent me a Scratch ‘n Bit for Furball to test drive. When the parcel arrived, Furball was interested even before I opened the box. Once I took out the Scratch ‘n Bit, he began rubbing his cheek against the corner and purring loudly.

The honeycomb surface felt really durable. I expected it to be more like corrugated cardboard in feel, but instead, it’s got a real toughness to it. Furball enjoys using the corners for a nice scratch on his chin, but I haven’t seen him try scratching it with his claws. I think it’s a little small for him, but if you think about it, most shelter cats are kept in small enclosures so they wouldn’t have the option of a bigger scratching post.

This little scratcher makes a lot of sense for shelter cats as it gives them somewhere to stretch their claws and hopefully feel a little more at home. And, when they get adopted, the Scratch ‘n Bit can go home with them, giving them somewhere to scratch other than their new owner’s couch.

Scratch ‘n Bits come in several shapes and are available in both vertical and horizontal styles – to fit a variety of shelter spaces. They’re made in the USA, from 68{456796300b989ac2391159a2df073ed1ad38074dfcdb28494d5d1df8ab5972d8} post consumer recycled materials, and are also 100{456796300b989ac2391159a2df073ed1ad38074dfcdb28494d5d1df8ab5972d8} recyclable.

If you’d like to donate a case of Scratch ‘n Bits to your local shelter, please call 1-800-783-0977 and ask for Kristie or Kim. OR, email kim [AT] imperialcat.com.
