When it comes to feline pet entertainment devices we would love to see a cutting-edge soft autonomous mouse that would run around the house and let those cat hunting instincts get well exercised. But actually, if you’ve ever opened up a box in the house you know that low tech play-things are often very welcome as distractions from your carpets and furniture.
The Ripple Rug is an innovative cat activity mat that offers many of the advantages of a scratching post tree house without having to provide a constant dedicated space. The rug is soft yet strong and durable, made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles which scores as a win for the environment. Once your cat(s) starts to scratch and pull on the Ripple Rug mat, it creates places for it to hide and “hunt” in. The varied sized holes are great for your cat to explore and stick their paws through to swipe at whatever goes by (you know how that is). While your cat’s activity will change the shape of the mat, you can also reconfigure the shape and contours anytime using the simple ‘lift and release’ touch points to give your cat a fresh new play space.
Some additional benefits noted by the manufacturer are:
- It’s Non-Toxic; Mold, Mildew, and Stain resistant.
- No power required.
- Wash with just soap and water.
- It’s super light, folds up for easy storage making it very portable for indoor/outdoor use.
