Is it machine washable?
Answer by ChewyOct 25, 2022
This play mat should be cleaned using a sticky roller or vacuum to remove fur. If needed, use soap and water to remove stains. Rinse using a garden hose. Hang flat to dry. Do not tumble dry.

I’ve had mine for about 8 months and it’s lost its stiffness from the folding and from one of the cats laying in top of it. Is there anyway to regain the integrity of the structure? Even with reinforced ends, the center with cave in.
Answer by ChewyMay 02, 2019
Cat oils and fur left on carpet fibers may soften the carpet. Simply vacuuming (to remove fur and other pet dander), then washing the rug with soap and water to remove fur oils followed by hanging straight/flat to dry will help to bring much of the original springiness back.

Can this be torn apart? My cat seems to like chewing on it and I’m afraid he’s gonna eat it
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2019
This rug is made with a non-fray material that will stand up to scratching and playing.

Would an adult cat like this or is it more for kitties?
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2019
This mat is suitable for cats of all sizes and ages. There are 14 holes ranging from 2 inches to 7 inches. The medium to large holes have expansion slits allowing cats to pass through or pop their heads out. The small holes are meant for paws to poke through.The safety slits can be elongated about an additional inch, making them 2 inches long total.The holes can be made larger or even interconnected if need be.

So simple, but so fun!

I was curious when I saw this innovative cat toy on Chewy. I decided to give it a try since my cat likes to burrow. This simple design is a total hit with my cat. I change up the configuration every day and she gets so excited. She dives into the new "cave" that's been created, brings other toys to play on, in, and around the Ripple Rug, and eventually smooshes the cave down into a nest. I've had it for about 2 months and my cat hasn't lost interest in it at all. I love this thing! Definitely get one for your cats.

I cannot rave enough!!!

I’ve had this for a few months now. My cats loved it instantly and that love has not faded. It is their favorite thing. They love to squirm between the folds and wrestle the ripples. Sometimes I sprinkle catnip on it and they have a field day flopping and snaking their bodies along it. It’s so cute. When we play with a string toy, they’ll take it from me if they can and drag it to the rug as their “kill zone.” The rug is a great place for them to hang out and they use it as a home base if they’re stalking a toy. It also adds mystery to play, and they love when I slide a stick toy underneath; they pounce on it and try to pull the toy out through the holes. This rug stays interesting and fresh because you can reconfigure it into new, interesting shapes. Sometimes I’ll make tunnels or tents and one cat will make it his hideout. It’s so cute to see them peeking at me from underneath or poking their snouts out of a hole to try and bite a toy. The rug has a sturdy construction; it doesn’t fray when I vacuum it and it’s thick enough that their claws can’t poke through it. We are obsessed with this thing. I highly, highly recommend it. It will make your cat happy and it will definitely make you laugh.

it’s ok but not great for a lasting cat toy

I got this for my 2 cats. It’s two large carpets. One with holes and Velcro pieces under and another one to lay flat on the floor and attach the top one making folded tunnels. At first it was good and the idea was great, but within 2 weeks the Velcro didn’t hold up and the cats could make it flat in a few hours. I would put things like pop up tunnels, baskets, large balls under the top carpet to make the tunnels and carpet folds hold a tunnel so the cats can play through and under, but again the velcro just doesnt hold. The top carpet is thin and heavy. I was spending more time fixing it than my cats were playing on it. I threw it out. Waste of money in the end.

Our cats loves it!!!

My honest first impression was "it looks nice. But pricy". My impression now is "This is the happy purchase. Really worth it!" If your cats like hunting play or sleeping on the carpet, this gonna be a great gift for them. My bigger cat is a toy destroyer and loves eating everything however...this doesn't have small pieces so I really like this playing mat from their safety also.

Love this!

Both my cats started playing the moment I put the mat down. It acts as a hiding spot, scratching post, you can move it so they feel it's new & one of my cats just sits on it like it's "base" and he feels safe. What a great idea. Wish I would have invented it!

A wonderful play space

My cat doesn't play with toys very much but this activity mat has been a huge hit. He loves tunnels so that's how I shaped it (see photos). He likes playing from the inside, playing from the outside, diving into the end of the tunnel or just chilling inside watching the world go by through his many windows. The material gives when he leans on it and then pops back into shape. And it doesn't slide! The Velcro is strong. They say simple designs are the best designs and this is the perfect example. This has turned him into a livelier, more energetic cat. I'm so pleased and I highly recommend it.

Great Toy (though it does go flat)

I understand the review that suggested the top mat tends to get soft. I've noticed the extra velcro tabs throughout the top mat tend to grab the base whenever my cats lay on the top. This flattens the experience as the tunnels I make by positioning the top mat disappear. But this particular issue may be partially addressed by putting a random cardboard (small) box between the top mat and the bottom one to keep the velcro from attaching too soon. This toy is a winner if you know how to be creative with it, otherwise, the intention of the holes for tunneling may be just a 45 second experience for you furbabies. That is the only reason for the 4 stars rather than 5. I'd give it 5 stars for durability, as it stands up to lots of rough interactive pay between my two furbabies.

Hate it. It's not chew proof

After having my kittens play in it for less than 20 mins, they immediately started to chew on the carpet. I didn't notice it at first because I was busy dealing with work. Then not long after I went to check on them a small chunk has already been chewed out and the kitten had eaten it. You can clearly see in the picture a small part is missing. I worry the kitten won't be able to digest the material and have it stuck in its stomach. I'm very concerned and will need to throw this product away, what a waste of money....

My cats love this!

I have been eyeing this toy for a while, and I am so glad I finally got it. My cats love to play on it, lay on it, wrestle on it, and sneak around on it. They love to play on it with each other, and go absolutely crazy when I get out their little wand toy and "sneak" it around the rug and through the holes. My older cat loves to dig and stick his paws under things, and this allows him to engage in that behavior without tearing up a carpet. It seems pretty durable as well.

So much use!

I am compelled to review this ripple rug as it gets constant happy use. Sometimes we add other elements like a cardboard box or a wool kitty donut house that is also a huge hit. The Ragdoll and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel spend a lot of time playing around this rug or lying on it or lurking beneath one of its perfect hidey holes to pop out and surprise the unsuspecting! So much fun. And easy to roll up and stash away when desired. So many pet entertainment items fail to retain their intrigue for long. This is a keeper. I always recommend to cat owner friends.
