Catastic Event, Day 8: Cattino Review and Rattino Giveaway

Product provided.


Earlier in the Catastic Event we showed you how to put a Cattino together but we left you hanging as to whether we LIKED this cat scratcher with a modern design and two hammocks for resting.  Let me put your curiosity to rest - well, for the most part. You see, ever since it came in the door of the yurt it has been SHERPA'S Cattino. The rest of us have not been allowed near it!


Well except me for a bit for what the publicist call a "photo op." She plopped me on top and started taking pictures. I can assure you - Sherpa was NOT happy about this. So from this point on I am going to turn the review over to Sherpa as he is the one using the Cattino the most. If any of us try to use it while he is near it well....


It's not pretty. I was thwacked on the head just for testing out the very cool scratching section. So I now turn it over to Sherpa.


Hi everyone. I must meow that I L.O.V.E. my new Cattino. It's like it was created JUST for me. See how cool I look sitting in the bottom? Now I know that it wasn't made for me, it was made for a lovely kitty named Miss Trudy but that doesn't mean that it isn't purrfect for me too! It is made in the USA and is finished with beautiful Baltic birch. It is just short of 2 ft x 2 ft in size. It comes with washable hammocks but what is really cool is the availability of additional fabrics. I am going to meow to the publicist to get me a really cool extra one in leopard for when she is washing my red ones. I wouldn't want to miss any lounging time now, would I? You can also get additional scratchers for when your cats mighty claws rip them to shreds.


The Cattino is a combination cat scratcher and lounger so it is ideal for cats like me. Cats with things to do. Cats with CLAWS. I have been using the scratcher quite a bit but I am a sneaky boy. Any time the publicist would whip out her camera to take video I would stop scratching and hide.

 

 If you cannot see the movie you can watch it on YouTube HERE

Bwahahahaha. Did I scare you?
I am one sneaky cat aren't I?
But no matter how hard she tried I did not let her get me on film either scratching or playing with the catnip mustache. I am clever like that. I hear the trill of the camera and I stop what I am doing.


I love that I can sit inside the Cattino or on top of it. Don't listen to that publicist when she makes remarks that there is a little too much me for the top. I fit just fine. My motto is, "If I am comfortable, that is all that counts!" And no matter where I go on the Cattino I am one happy cat. It is mine, mine, ALL MINE! 

Therefore if you want one of your own you can shop at Cattino and please follow them on Facebook and Twitter. We do!


The publicist is so happy with the Cattino that she is going to send one lucky US reader a Rattino for their kitty. I think I see something I need to take care of so I will let her tell you about the giveaway. I know my Cattino will be waiting for me when I get back. No cat would DARE get on it while I'm gone. They all know here that it is MINE.


Uh-oh. Trouble's a brewing in the yurt!

  3. Sherpa, you just may want video surveillance on YOUR Cattino...24/7...just sayin'.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Sherpa, you have so many loungers and other lovely furniture that you'd think you could share a little. Harry does look very dashing with his tuxedo furs against that beautiful red top bunk. You can't occupy both seats at once, so give Harry a chance to rip the scratcher & enjoy the top bed. You should just pretend not to see each other and call it good.

  8. That Cattino is really so cool! Did you leave a nose print on your Publicist's camera? Heehee. We bet she, along with the other pawparazzi wish there was some kind of silencer they could attach to their cameras. MOL!

  18. I'm entering because last week a cat adopted us. It's been visiting our house daily for meals and last night we found it at the door, meowing to come in. No collar.....the kids have named her. We kept her outside but we're attached. Though I don't really know if she scratches where she is supposed to, I am sure she'd love this!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. One of our cats doesn't scratch much at all, but the other does, and in addition to scratching in the designated place, she also uses the carpet, the couch, and the leather recliner (ouch!).

    ReplyDelete
  30. All three of our cats are rescues. Our Maine Coon, Koneko, had his front paws declawed before he was found, so we haven't had to worry about him doing too much scratching. Our other two cats - Moko, who is about 6 and Arata who is 10 months, we get times they do a lot of scratching and other times not as much. I do trim their nails, but even that doesn't stop the scratching completely. I did have a cheap cardboard scratching thing for them and it helped, but didn't hold up to their scratching. I'd love to get this one for them.

  48. And who's defining "where the cat is supposed to scratch". I'd say yes, and no. The cats would simply say yes.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yes, most of the time my kitties Moses and Scooter will scratch where they are suppose to.
    But if they feel like they are being ignored they will scratch the recliner or teh box spring on our bed to get our attention.

  73. I love the Cattino and Rattino, but the Blue TinoFish Cat Toy with Catnip is more in line with my budget, I'm afraid. Fortunately, it's the kind of thing my cats would love, and with that hanging loop, they'd have lots of fun with it even when I'm not here to play with them.
