Because modern pets (and their owners) sometimes prefer modern furniture, Square Cat Habitat has updated the scratching post and kitty bed with a modern, sustainable alternative. The Portland, OR-based cat lovers chose bamboo plywood and water-based finishes (and use recycled packing materials) for their sustainability and longevity; the products themselves are designed to be a useful place for Fluffy to lounge, scratch and catnap. Each of the three pieces ("Bastet", pictured above, is a square place to play, lounge, sleep, whatever...the other two are pictured below the fold) features removable/replaceable carpet inserts, making them easy to keep clean and (eventually) replace, after the claws have come out one too many times. Though we've seen some nice designs with corrugated cardboard, Square Cat Habitat's offer a nice alternative to the shredded mess that the cardboard can leave behind.

"Itch" can be mounted on the wall, or just kept on the floor
