Don’t forget to shop for the cat. I mean, of course as a dog, I shop for my sisters and me first, but sometimes I feel the need to get things for my kitties. This month is cat bro Bert and kitty sis Sophie’s Gotcha Day, so why not spoil them a bit?

I’m not going to lie, I am not real excited about shopping for the cats, but sometimes cats do deserve a gift besides the boxes all my purchases arrive in. Cat bro Bert can be a real pest, but I know getting him a scratcher will make him happy, and keep me safe in the event he tries to use those razor sharp claws on me. He does enjoy beating me up now and then, like when I sit in “his” box from Chewy.com.
Bert is real good about using scratching posts. He has had scratchers in the past but he wore them all out. I decided to order him the OurPets Alpine Climb Cat Scratcher. The scratcher comes with a small amount of catnip which is perfect as Bert is a real nip head!
At first the silly kitty thought the box was his and that was it. He didn’t realize the package sitting on the floor was for him. Sophie doesn’t do a lot of scratching, so she never even showed up to check things out.
Assembly is required, the directions are on the back of the bottom piece. I had to unfold the bottom into the triangular incline, and then stick the scratching part on to that to create the incline. Of course, Bert was short on patience, and tried to use the Alpine Climb Scratcher before it was assembled.
The moment I had the scratcher assembled, Bert jumped right onto it. He loves the incline angle for scratching, and he really rips at it.
I added some of the nip to the scratcher, and Bert fell in love completely. Does this look like a happy cat or what? He says I should shop for the cat more often, but I’m not sure about that.
Once you have the scratcher assembled, your cat will be out of your furs, and you can sit back and relax while he scratches away, and eats up the nip.
The moral to my story here to day is to be kind to others, even when they are feline siblings. Don’t forget to shop for the cat sometimes when you place your Chewy.com order, they will appreciate it!
