EmeryCat #Fail

July 17, 2010

Ok, so Scooter won’t be featured in the next EmeryCat commercial. I brought this home for her hoping she would use it to file her claws down but she doesn’t seem to “get” what she’s supposed to do with it.

    That is adorable. Has she learned to use it as a scratching pad yet? Doesn’t it come with catnip to pour on the board so they are attracted to scratching it?

    At first when I saw the title of the post and saw there was a video I didn’t realize it was actually YOUR cat, Scooter. I am so used to just seeing photos that it’s very cute to actually watch her playing!

    But you are right, she probably won’t make the cut for the next Emery Cat commercial.

    OMG, we actually have moved up to videos, awesome!

    She is too cute. You can really tell she’s a kitten.

    Where’s Notch?

      Notch is sleeping. That’s pretty much all Notch does these days as she’s slowing down quite a bit. She’s still got some fight in her though- but getting them both in a video is tough because Notch generally likes to pretend scooter doesn’t exist.

    Did you try rubbing some catnip into the corrugated scratch pad?

    My cat has not outgrown her love of catnip. I rub some catnip into her scratch pad, and she rubs herself against it in ecstasy:) She also sharpens her claws on the pad. Unfortunately, she still sharpens her claws on my loveseat, too. Oh, well…

    Yes, I did pour cat nip on it and in the video you can actually see it on the board. She loves catnip but she seems to like furry stuff with bells better. And see that wavy thing behind her in the video- that is made out of rug and something else which I put cat nip on and she does rip her claws across that so I am not sure why she doesn’t do that with the Emery Cat. If I take the toy off the EmeryCat she wants nothing to do with it.
