Our first one of these lasted four years as a scratcher (I mean it still gets scratched at, but they've basically dug a moat around the edge at this point) and still gets nearly daily use as a bed. Just ordered another since we have some new kittens in the house.
My kitties love this not only as a scratch pad but they sleep in it too.
Bought it for my overweight cat. He loves it. So does my dog.
I like the appearance & structure, well made. But I have bought cheaper ones cats like better. I see then occasional get inside it. I have four cats..
These beds are great. Very sturdy, look so much better than others, easy to clean and the cats like having a ledge of sorts to rest their weary heads (lol)
My cats both use this more as a bed than a scratcher. They really like it and it gets used a lot.
This has turned out to be more of a bed than a scratcher but my kids love it (although they don't both fit).
So, when I bought the smaller version of the Necoichi Scratcher Bed last December, we had a 3 cat household. ALL three older cats REALLY like it and use it (to varying degrees). We recently took the plunge and adopted 2 kittens (lol), so now we have a 5 cat household. The kittens ALSO really like the scratcher bed, so I just ordered another in this larger size. It hasn't arrived yet, but I'm sure it will add to everyone's happiness. Not only do all of my cats like to sleep in it, but some of them also like to use the cardboard scratcher insert. The good thing is that the initial insert lasted more than 6 months (since we also have 2 cardboard scratcher/roller ball duos). Regardless, they are super easy to replace. I just hope that Chewy continues to carry the inserts because I remember ordering my first set of replacements on the Necoichi site, not that there was a problem with this, it's just easier to buy everything in one place. At any rate, I'm super impressed with this product because ALL of my cats think it's great!
I have a big boy (16lbs) who is always trying to cram himself into the smaller cardboard scratchers, so I was happy to find one for his birthday that seemed large enough for him to comfortably take a nap. Well, he fits perfectly and is so happy! Happy Birthday, Tommy!
My Bob is a big boy and was obsessed with a smaller box so I got this one and it fit perfectly.
