It’s empty in here!
Top quality cat bed and scratching area. We have three cats and they love it. Very well constructed with room for all three. It has a small footprint making it ideal for tucking into a small room.
Since I bought this barrel, 3 cats fell in love with it and will fight over it - though they only use the top part unfortunately but that's how it goes.. as the fourth cat was added to the household, she has also shown interest but is currently too small to fight with the others over it. It's definitely cat-approved!
I have 2 cats and already have the old style Diogenys scratch barrel. The new style XL is quite a bit bigger with larger oval holes and the top bed is also bigger. My cats love the new one. My only complaint is that the top cushion is attached via Velcro strips and you can see the wooden top and base which looks like it hasn't been finished off properly! For this reason I have given 4 stars instead of 5.
This is the third Natural Paradise item I have purchased. I am really pleased with the quality of these items as they are sturdy items. However, the only problem I have with the Scratch Barrel - XL Standard is the size of the removable cushions. I have measured the inside diameter of the den and found it to be 39.5cm but the cushion diameter is 43.5cm therefor do not lie flat inside the den. Not a major issue but it does spoil the look hence the loss of a star.
my cats love this. i like the removable cushions so that i can wash them. the cats love using the scratch barrel i would recommend this for anyone with multiple cats i have purchased a small one as i am tight on space and this size is perfect for any cat over 6 KG i am so pleased i didn't buy the XXL as it would have been too big for my flat
Both my cats have taken to it immediately, in fact they were both in it before the beds were even sorted. It's good quality, sturdy and well made. My only gripe (and the reason for 4 stars) is because I feel the top wooden disc looks a bit unfinished. I think I'll maybe paint it cream, and it does look a little messy with the removable bed the way it is. It would look nicer if the material for the bed covered the wooden disc. This is a design flaw that I will need to rectify some how.
My cats love it! It's very solid, good quality. They can have a really good scratch at the sides and it doesn't shred! Plenty of space in the 3 dens and good space on top.
Really impressive, 2 cats and a human very happy with this purchase. Don't hesitate, your cats will adore it (after the 'new' smell has gone )
Bought this when it was full price and my two Ragdoll's love it.
