"I came across your product while searching for a solution to my cats' need to scratch on my couch and the back of my computer chair. I'd tried vertical scratching posts made of various materials and cardboard ramps; but one cat in particular (Skittles) just didn't take to them. He loved straddling the arm of the couch or the back of our computer chair and would scratch away. Nothing I did to discourage this behavior and encourage the use of the other items ever seemed to work.
I came across a lot of products that were in a wave shape and even some that had a rounded top, but none of them were the right shape or size for him to be able to "straddle" it. And then the heavens opened, light shone down, angels sang, and I found a link to a product called a Kitty Speed Bump. Hallelujah! It looked great: the right shape, the right size, durable material....
And.... IT WORKS!!! He LOVES it (to put it mildly)! Hooray! Thank you so much for this absolutely, wonderfully, PURR-fectly made Kitty Speed Bump! He scratches on it, plays on it, and sleeps on it. It's terrific! A Huge Fan!
PS: My other two kitties (Sunny and Sweet Tart) also love the Speed Bump and it has also become their preferred scratcher. They used to love the cardboard ramp. I am not sad to see that thing go, along with all of it's tiny little pieces of cardboard that used to cover my carpet."

"Just wanted to let you know that our kids continue to love your tunnel. One of the best cat purchases I ever made!"
— Retagene H.
"These things appear to be indestructible! My gang tears up all scratchers and climbers, but not cat pod items. They did hurl on them, but it cleaned up nicely."
— Cherie H.
"One cat in particular loves to sit in this and zoom in and out. Well made and sturdy!"
— Jackie R.
"fantastic! super high- quality, which you might think is a funny thing to say about a cardboard cat scratcher? but believe me, those mass- produced cardboard scratchers just shred under determined cat toes, and the cardboard bits go EVERYWHERE. not the case with this fine example of the cardboard-cat-toy art. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
— Martha T.
"LOL my cats were going nuts before i even opened the bag thank you!"
— Kristopher N.
“The cats loved them, what fun! Thanks!”
— Laura C.
“My cat loves this! I thought she'd shred it to pieces in a week but it has been a month and it is still holding strong. She scratches on it several times a day and I can tell it will last a long time. Very well made. Thank you! :D”
— Yvette B.

— Jean S.
"These are so catterrific!!! I have a picky bunch of cat critters at my home and most toys, treats, cat nip products just do "nothing" for the little beasts. I gave them a few of the pucks and they all lost their kittie minds! It is such great fun watching them bat them around, chase, attach and roll all over them! Paws up to your fantastic pucks!!!!"
— Carmen C.
"I don't know what kind of catnip you use but for the first time ever, my cat is rolling around the floor in sheer joy. He's never, ever liked catnip before. While I was trying to cut open the bag of pucks to give him one, he swatted the whole bag out of my hands, he was so anxious. As much as he loves these, I will definitely be buying more!"
— Jill M.
"My cats love it, they scratch and hide in it...great fun!"
— Kathleen P.
"MY CAT WENT CRAZY OVER THESE KITTY PUCKS ! WE HAD TO TAKE IT FROM HIM AFTER A WHILE BECAUSE HE WAS RUNNING AROUND THE HOUSE. HE WAS SO MAD WHEN I TOOK IT. I'LL BE BUYING MORE. IT'S THE MOST EXERCISE HE'S GOTTEN IN A LONG WHILE."
— Danielle P.
"My big tabby cat started playing with the puck as soon as I took it out of the bag. It was a success. An inexpensive toy that can be replaced easily by just going back to Green Cat Industries. Love all the other products in the shop as well. Take a look!"

— Shirley W.
"My cat, Moo, has one of these Catpods. We've had it for many months now, and we can certainly vouch for how long they last. It's his favorite thing in the world -- he runs over to it and scratches away as soon as I get home every day; I think it's his way of saying "hi" to me. And, so far, you can hardly tell he's even used it. It's amazing."

Even my fussy female cat, Missy, has given it her approval. A definite "Two Paws Up"!!!!!! Thank you so much for enriching their lives."
— Judi N.

— Michelle H.
"Thanks again, on behalf of Rescue House. When I opened the box to look at it, my cats (I have four) immediately tried to get in the box with it, and when I shooed them away and closed the box again, they started opening it to get back at it...to where I had to finally seal it up with tape again. Based on their responses, I'll probably have to bid on it at the silent auction!
— Sarah L., The Rescue House

— Xochitl G.

Every home with a cat should definitely have Catpods!!!"

— Debbie W.
"My 7 cats and my 7 rats LOVE these. They always split any toys I buy..... I don't know which love them more. They've lasted too, which says a lot, considering the amount of critters I have. Thanks so much."
— AJ E.
"I wish the cats spoke English and could type to tell you how awesome this is. I have 4 cats and 2 of them play one inside belly up, head and butt sticking out either end and one on top of it, batting through the portholes. It's heavy enough that my 17-pounder can scratch and it doesn't run away from him. It gives me no end of joy to watch them having such a happy blast playing with it. AND THE PUCKS ARE AWESOME! We rate toys by how often we have to dig them out from under the couch. The more the better. I just sit on the floor sometimes because it just save me time. Our 12-year old cat cries when he loses it. Just wonderfully amazing. I think we'll need three more."

"My cats and kittens LOVE their Christmas present!! This is the best cat toy, hands down. The quality is outstanding, anything that can survive our crew of 13 rescue cats and kittens has got to be made well! I'm so happy I found their shop, my order shipped out super fast and was packaged perfectly, everything arrived intact and perfect condition. I didn't get the box completely open before our cats started diving in! The speed bumps are awesome, and the one cat is always in the catpod while another patiently lounges on top of it awaiting a turn to chill in it. They love it, and it's keeping them from scratching our couch! Always a plus! Thank you for making such a great product!"
— Maria V.
"FANTASTIC product!!! Our cats love Catpod products. This specific is so much fun. It is big enough for our cats to get into and hide from each other. They get on top and stick their paws through the holes. Of course, the bumps are perfect for scratching, as is the whole tunnel. I highly recommend these products."
— Nan S.
"I love these cat tunnels and so does my cat, it's the one item he used immediately without any encouragement though catnip wouldn't hurt. I got this set for shelter where I volunteer (Phillypaws.org). The cats went nuts right away & the shelter staff wanted one for their own cats. Great to sit on, in and the port holes are perfect for a game of Kitty Wack A Mole"
— Carolyn K.
"Exceptionally made! My cats love it! I encouraged their appeal by sprinkling a little cat nip inside. They go crazy for this now. Wonderful little cozy hide out, and terrific for scratching on and rubbing their cheeks against. The seller shipped the item promptly and was great to work with!"

He's played very hard with the one I gave him and it's still alive, which I can't even say for the high end store bought toys I bought him. This is an exemplary product and I will totally purchase more!"
— Jamie M.
"Fantastic. Our two Burmese cats love them. We don't have to worry when they chew the cardboard!"
— Emily R.
"My friend's kitties had a blast. We joked that one would need an intervention after prolonged craziness due to her sheer delight. She's not a cat who likes many toys, either, so it's always great when we find something that she loves. Big paws up from Miss Bella Catface!"
— Jamie M.
"My Cats love it. It is stronger than the typical cardboard scratched which is very nice because it will last a long time."

"My cats love, love scratching their nails and stretching on the Pod. What surprised me is that they love going through the tunnel too, I thought they had outgrown that with their old scratcher but this makes them love it again!"
— Leslie W.
"Cats go nuts for these. I saved them & throw one out when I need some "adult" time, like when I'd like to cook w/o their help."
— Leslie W.
"Fun scratcher tunnel that will get lots of use. Excellent quality and nicely sized. Shipped promptly and securely."
