Unlike your sofa, this Chaise is made to be scratched! Unique honeycomb surface mimics the feel of tree bark (a texture cats prefer), so kitty will scratch this, and not your expensive home furnishings. The contoured surface of the Chaise is great for lounging, too! Made in the USA from recycled paper. 100% recyclable with cardboards after use. Includes a bag of our ultra-potent, Pure, All-Natural catnip.
