katkabinHi everybuddy!  Wally here…along with Ernie…to tell you all about a new cat bed and scratcher that we got to try out and let everybuddy know what we think of it.  It’s the SkratchKabin™…a warm, cozy place for us cats to sleep and hide that has a curved, textured scratching surface.  Now what cat doesn’t like a cozy napping spot, right?  Some of you already may be familiar with the KatKabin® which is the outdoor version without the scratching surface.  Both are made the same with high grade, fade-resistant materials.  And let me tell you…they’re made really well…designed to last a lifetime!

Wanna know more about the KatKabin and SkratchKabin?  Here’s some of their features:

  • Both are a cool looking cat design that will look great in or outside your home.
  • The KatKabin provides a warm, cozy and shaded insulated outdoor shelter for napping, stretching and relaxing.  It has a conventional clip-on cat flap that can be attached or removed depending on the season or the cat’s preference.  The KatKabin is purrfect for cats that spend a lot of time outdoors keeping them protected from bad weather.
  • The SkratchKabin has an irresistible curved, textured scratching surface that helps to protect furniture, carpets and curtains from claw damage. 
  • Both are about the size of an average cat carrier.
  • Both come with a washable KatKushion.
  • The SkratchKabin also comes with a toy hanger and sisal mouse toy.
  • The KatKabin comes in 4 colors…brown, green, red and blue.  The SkratchKabin comes in 3 colors…oatmeal, blueberry and cocoa.  We chose the cocoa color.


Okay, SkratchKabin.  I’ll check you out.
You look very interesting.


Wow, there’s a lot of room in here.
I think I’ll make myself comfortable.


This surface is purrfect for sharpening my claws, Wally.
Hey!  Don’t get too comfy in there.
I wanna try out the SkratchKabin.

Sheesh, Ernie…I just got in here.
But I’m not sharing the SkratchKabin with you.
It’s all yours, buddy.


Wow, Wally was right…there is a lot of room in here.
And a nice comfy cushion, too.
They say it’s washable.  That’s good.
Wally tends to yak a lot.


I’m going in!


Oh yeah…this is a great place to hang out and get my easy on.

We give the SkratchKabin big paws up!  The only problem with it is that we won’t want to share it with each other!

Disclosure:  We got the SkratchKabin™ for free when we agreed to do this review, but that’s all we got and it didn’t influence our opinion at all.

  1. I can see why you don’t want to share, that does look cozy. Your Mom best use that discount to get you each one 🙂

  2. Are SkratchKabin’s the best? Truffles really enjoys hers and I think she will find it extra cozy come winter!

  3. Looks super cool. So this is for outdoors and maybe good for feral cats?

    • Yes! The KatKabin is designed to be used outdoors and would be purrfect for feral cats. The SkratchKabin has a nice scratching surface and should be used indoors only.

  4. Maybe you’ll have to keep rubbing round your Mom’s ankles to let her know you’d like one each.

  5. wow that looks fantastic. i’ll start saving my pennies to get one for the boyz.

  6. Those Kabins are just darling…I have seen them around, I love their design and they look like they are made well. They should have let you do a give-away 🙂

  7. Whoa, that thing is STYLISH.

  8. mom keeps saying maybe one day she will have enough green papers to get one of the KatKabins for our feral girl Allie

  9. Man alive, that is awesome! Think we’d have to get two.

  10. Dang, that looks like a whole big bunch of fun guys!

  11. Wow, those both look like really great hang-out spots! The KatKabin sounds like it would be super cool for a family of feral kitties, especially during the winter time. Thanks for this pawesome review!

  12. The ScratchKabin looks very cool. We bet if we got one, we wouldn’t want to share it, either!

  13. that looks like a pretty cool honey hole. Thanks for the. Honest review pals.

  14. We’ve thought about getting one of those.

  15. We have one of those and I love it! My sisfur Isabella never uses it but I sure do! Great review boys!

  16. That sure does look comfy. Glad you two like it so much. You all have a fun day taking turns in it.

  17. Wow that is so cool Ernie and Wally!!! We’ll have to check it out.

  25. We also need to see Zoey’s edition of review to make up our minds 🙂

  26. You have done a great job with the review Wally and Ernie. These products sound like lotsa’ fun boys.


  27. That looks great. It’s like having your very own mancave.

  28. That looks like a perfect gift for Emma who both loves to scratch on a scratcher and would fit in perfectly inside.

  29. That looks like a lot of fun. Combining a cardboard scratcher and a hidey-mancave is a great idea.

  30. I bet if we had one of those, Binga would commandeer it.

  31. It looks pawsome!

  32. Bast! There is NO END of really WWW (weerdly wildly wunnerful) stuffs out there. We always want them.

  33. That looks like a lot of fun! We would love it here! 🙂

    the critters in the cottage xo

  34. Oh, Wow, we would love that!! Another hidey spot, MOL!

  35. I NEED THIS! Granted, I don’t have caws to scratch it, BUT I NEED IT.

  36. Oh my this looks so much fun guys! great review! why is the good stuff overseas…dang!!! loves Fozziemum xxx

  37. I just LUV that Kabin….have seen it before on another bloggy and thought “I’ve gotta put that on my Santa Wish List” – now I simply MUST do that!

    Hugs, Sammy

  38. What a nice thing to play with and do your pedicure !

  39. Wow how cool is the ScratchCabin, our kitties would go nuts with one of this.

  40. Wow, you really seem to like that cool bed! We really think we’d like one (or two) of those but we can’t convince our mom just yet. She says Quint has to sell more paintings first and you know you can’t rush an artist!

  41. That Scratch Kabin sure looks awesome, Wally and Ernie! We’d prolly have to have a time-share agreement here, to make sure we all got a chance to enjoy it. 🙂


  42. I can attest to their strength. We did giveaways for both the indoor and outdoor versions four years ago and both are as good as new!


  44. Looks awesome. However, based on my cats’ reaction to anything I buy that is made specifically for cats…I’m not so sure they’d use it. I’d have to convince them it was for the dogs. That would make it more attractive.

  45. Looks like you all will be competing for time in your ScratchKabin.

  46. That looks really cool! We think Samantha would love to hang out in there! Are you boys going to let Zoey try it out too?

  47. Mee-you thiss iss sum cabin Wally an Ernie…..what will Hu’manss fink of next??? 😉

  49. I know my cat would love this!
