A Cat’s Gonna Scratch, Where Will It Be #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Guess what? I’s didn’t hijack anythin’ today. Sis Dezi’s gonna let me take da lead. She’s such a pawsum sisfur. She’s really pawsum fur a lot of reasons. Did you all know dat befur I was born sis Dezi was enterin’ contests and give aways tryin’ to win new toys and other stuffs to give me when I came to live with her and mommy? She did win one of them and I’s luvs dat toy. She’s really sumfin’, mines sisfur. She knew mommy couldn’t afford to buy new stuffs fur me and she wanted me to have somethin’ of mines very own dat wasn’t a hand me down. So, when we got da oppurrtunity to review a brand new kitty scratcher from Kong as pawrt of da Chewy Influencer purrogram this month, she jumped at it. Yes we have svratchers but they’re all scented up with sis Dezi and her sis Lexi’s (may she rest in peace) scents.

       Be sure and let everypawdy know dat you’ll be sharin’ da new scratcher Raena. 

Of course I’s gonna share sissy.

 Kong Incline Cat Scratcher

       Me knows, but it’s good to make it clear. Anyways, let me say a few things ‘bout Kong. They are a pawsum company dat has been makin’ doggy toys fur years. They even make some dat can withstand almost any toture inflicted by da rowdiest of pups. So when they started makin’ cat toys mommy thought they would be no brainers. After all, we kitties aren’t nearly as destructive as da woofies.  MOL 

 Kong Incl;ine Cat Scratcher

Can I’s tell ‘bout our new scratcher now sissy?  (Dezi nods and continues to clean her furs) Fanky fanks. So we received da Kong Incline Cat Scratcher made of corrugated cardboard. Now this is da purrfect size scratcher fur this little kitty girl. It’s 19.25X7.5X1.5 in size and has a double sided surface. And it’s refillable. It also came with a small bag of Kong Purremium North American CatNip. Da scratcher has 3 small holes in da inclined end and a crinkle ball dangles there to entice kitty to play. Mommy says anypawdy who has had a kitten knows no enticement is needed. But dat might be a good feature fur an older less destructive cat. And we’ll ‘splain dat in a minute. Furst let me give ya’ da key benefits as listed on Chewy’s website.


Key Benefits

  • Available in three sizes to satisfy your cat’s natural scratching instincts by encouraging appropriate scratching behavior

  • Environmentally friendly cat scratchers are made with renewable resources and are recyclable

  • Double scratcher functions as a refill for the incline scratcher

  • Scratch pads are reversible for extended use, giving your cat’s paws double the use and double the fun

  • KONG Premium North American Catnip included to entice play


  • Single Scratcher:  19.25 x 4.5 x 1.5 inches

  • Double Scratcher: 19.25 x 8.88 x 1.5 inches

And I’s already gave ya’ da measurements fur da incline scratcher which is size 3.

 Raena plays with the paper cover of the Kong Incline scratcher

Da furst thing mommy did was take fotos. And then she carefully pulled da paper off da scratching pad. Hmmmm  da spot where da glue held it on there is still there. Mommy’s tried everythin’ toget it off to no avail. Dat’s okay, let mines claws and teefies at it. I’s’ll make short work of it fur sure. (Chewing on and swallowing glue…Not a thought that makes mommy happy) Anyways, dat Kong nip must be purretty good cuz dat paper top was lots of fun. Furinally mommy headed to da livin’ room with da Kong Incline Scratcher itself. I was so excited I’s just couldn’t wait and jumped from da tree right at dat scratcher and mommy. Mommy dropped da scratcher and I’s started investigatin’. Dat’s why all our fotos are of me and da scratcher in front of da door. Mommy couldn’t even get it to da livin’ room. I began to scratch and chew. Yeah, I’s figger ifin it’s good fur sharpenin’ mines claws it must be good fur sharpenin’ mines teefies too. And then I’s found da hole and dat cutesy little danglin’ crinkle ball.

 Raena pokes her head through the hole of the Kong incline scratcher

Less than 2 minutes later, dat ball was mines. Yep, I dismembered pulled dat ball from da scratcher all together. Mommy couldn’t see a string attached to da ball so she just took a few fotos. I’s then returned to da Incline scratcher and while mommys back was turned I went in fur dat danglin’ string dat once held da ball. Of course it was a piece of stretchy elasticized string and mommy heard it immediately. She took dat string away from me so fast mines head spun. I’s purrtested, “But mommy, dat looks like soooooooo much fun.” “it’s mine, after all it was attached to mines new cat scratcher.” All to no avail. Mommy wouldn’t give me dat cool string no matter what I’s meowed, chortled or chirped. She said somethin’ ‘bout dangerous and chokin’ hazard, and serious tummy issues and so on and threw dat ‘lastecized string in da trash. Even without da cool string, da Kong incline scratcher is amazin’. I’s give it all paws up. Let’s ask sissy what she thinks.

       Fanks Raena. Me likes it too. Altho’ you already had da ball torn off befur me’s got a chance to play, da scratcher is sturdy and does da job. Cuz of da crinkle ball attachment and da dangers associated with such features, me gives da Kong Incline Scratcher 3 paws up. Fur $5.65 it’s a great buy. Me knows mommy wants to say somethin’, so me will turn it over to her fur a minute. Mommy…

 Dezi scratches the Kong Incline scratcher

              Thank you girls. The Kong Incline Scratcher is a great option for cats and kittens of all ages and size. However, the crinkle ball and the accompanying string should be removed immediately before given to any cat. This isn’t the first design flaw I’ve seen in Kongs’ cat toys and is a bit disappointing. But all in all, the scratcher is wonderful, sturdy and liked by both Dezi and Raena. That makes it hit in my books. So one thumb up for the scratcher. And remember, even declawed cats have the need to scratch. This would be a great option. (Please, Do Not declaw your cat) 

 String attachment for Kong Incline ScratcherThis is the offending string and that’s a small piece of lightweight

cardboard it’s tied onto. This is threaded through a hole in the top

that isn’t secured so kitty can tear it out easily. And that small piece of

lightweight cardboard is already torn. Very Dangerous!!!

  1. That sure is a scary stringy thingy…Minko would have that chewed through or worse in a blink. Yikes. Pipo would love the crinkle ball, those are on of his fave toys! Around here, Pipo scratches on the backs of some old books…Hmmm, not so nice…and Minko loves to scratch on petcretary’s sandals…that can hurt…they have lots of specific scrathching places, cardboard, sisal and carpeted but they seem to enjoy other places instead…even with catnip enticers…
    They are silly kitties, MOL!

    You have fun with your new scratcher, girls, you can stretch way long to get good traction, right?!

    1. I’s can cuz I’s still kinda small. But sis Dezi can’t. It’s a great scratcher, but when ya’ get as big as sissy ya’ need one of those big tall scratchers.

      Luvs ya’

  2. Another one of those accursed balls! Okay, so the ball isn’t the problem … it’s the thin string it always hangs by. Bear’s cat tree came with two and I had my doubts about using them … then I read the directions which said something like that the balls were for decoration only and not to be used as cat toys. If the string doesn’t snap or get pulled out … Bear will chew through it. That’s why all the wand toys in the house are “with supervision only.” Fantastic review, Raena! We’re still waiting for your review of the Chewy boxes 😉

    1. Fanky Fanks. Mommy said da only reason this ball stayed attached as it came was cuz we were reviewin’ it and she didn’t plan on leavin’ us alone with it. Sis Dezi nearly hung herself when she was 4 weeks old from one of those danglin’ balls on our little door perch. And now she chews through all danglin’ strings, so mommy just takes them off to begin with. We have some wand toys with wires stead of strings. They move more natural and we like ’em even more. But they’re still supurrvised play only. Big hugs.

      Luvs ya’

  3. This is such a great review, girls! This scratcher sure is affordable. You’re right about declawed kitties still needing a scratcher. Annie prefers sisal and Pierrot loves cardboard. Raena, this was a perfect choice for you!

  4. Such a purrfect review, Raena and Dezi! We’re so happy to know you enjoyed this scratcher so well. And thank you for the warning about the toy attached to it! This is actually what the kitties around here chose to review this month, too. (Except, the mom here forgot to email Sydney until a few days out, so we’re still awaiting ours.) Seeing that you enjoyed it so much, the kitties here can’t wait! Purrs, and a have a beautiful day!
