Cardboard Cat Furniture

Updated

Cats will scratch up anything you put in front of them. Sharpening those claws is just part of what they do. So instead of giving them your good furniture to claw up, why not get them some cardboard cat furniture instead. There are tons of options available and when they destroy it, just throw it away. They're completely recyclable so lessening your carbon footprint.

Buying Guide

The durability of cardboard cat furniture depends on the strength of the cardboard as well as other factors and, therefore, varies from one cat owner to the other. However, with daily use, weak cardboard cat furniture will last for approximately a month, while more substantial types may last anywhere between six months to two years.

Weaker or softer cardboard furniture is cheaper and can be dented easily but is fun for your feline friend. So they will need to be replaced quicker. However, more durable cardboard furniture will last longer but will cost you more. Ultimately, all cardboard cat furniture is durable enough for your cat to get some use out of it.

As long as the vendor you purchase your cardboard cat furniture from is trusted and established, your cats will be safe playing and jumping around on it. However, choose furniture that is at least ⅛” thick and features supports or struts to support your cat’s weight. You can check the model’s weight capacity on the manufacturer’s specs.

Cats love to scratch and nibble at almost anything, so look for cardboard furniture made from unbleached paper pulp to protect your cat’s stomach.

Cardboard furniture for cats is also recyclable. This means it’s environmentally friendly to throw it away once it’s been subjected to wear and tear.
