I'm not sure what it is, the ergonomic curves, its impressive size or sense of ownership of the bed, but they do spend the better part of the day on the bed and sometimes fight for the middle spot! The Sweet Lounge is definitely worth the investment as it is favored over the more expensive carpeted cat tree I have and looks so much better! The parts that have been scratched into have become softer and it is slowly transforming into a nice napping spot for my cats. The hardboard keeps the overall modern art-esque shape and since it is symmetrical, I will one day be able to flip the bed over and I will have a brand new scratcher!
How appropriate of a cat furniture piece to be made of cardboard! Even my friends comment on how impressive it is! The natural materials and colors of the bed match almost any color scheme and holds true to modern design's `honesty of materials' precept. This really is the ultimate modern pet bed made with high quality artisan craftsmanship and authentic modern materials...My cats are so worth this!
The product itself looks nice and slick, has a nice heft to it and definitely has a quality of workmanship to it.
Having said that, my cat just doesn't really use it. He uses it more as a step stool to hide in the bottom drawer in a corner which he uses as kind of a cave. Sometimes he'll lay on top of this thing, and if I actually lift him up and put him on it, he'll scratch it for a bit, but whenever I'm home he basically ignores it for the most part.
For reference, my cat is male, ten years old, and ignored a very expensive cat tree I bought him as well and subsequently returned. But he does use an organic cotton bed that he curls up in and he'll actively scratch regular, cheap cardboard scratchers from Fat Cat also sold here.
Rating is 4 stars because while I like it, the item isnt a great value and I still feel its a bit overpriced. The size description is somewhat misleading: it is not 6' long, it is 3' (but kind of has 6' of scratchable surface since you can flip it over). I was more agreeable to the item's cost when I thought it was that large of a size - perfect for multicat households - so its size was a bit of a disappointment. Still a great product if its in your budget though.
edited on 12/31/2009 to add: after about a month or so this product starts to "Fray" and cardboard pieces come off it as your pet scratches. I've found that using a light weight sand paper you can remove a lot of the weakened material and increase the "life" of the product. You can also use a wire comb to remove loose cardboard.

This was absolutely the best purchase I have ever made for my kitties. They love scratching, rubbing, sleeping and playing on it. Alas, 2 years later and they have worn it out. Read morePublished on November 21, 2011 by SN
