Emery Cat Gym Review
If the name “Emery Cat” sounds familiar, you may recall “Emery Cat Board” which was advertised on television years ago. That single-sided cat scratcher was one of my earliest product reviews (on another website), and was advertised as a “honeycomb surface” that worked “like a nail file.” It was a hot seller, until consumers realized it was not very sturdy or durable.
Now we have Emery Cat Gym – which is sold on the same website used to market Emery Cat Board years ago (emerycat.com). This is a triangular cat scratcher that provides several scratching surfaces for cats. The fact that it provides vertical scratching is superior to flat cat scratchers, as this is a cat’s preferred method of scratching.
A triangle scratcher is better than flat scratchers for several reasons, among them being that it ends up lasting longer. Keep in mind that your cat will not scratch the entire surface, but toward the top of each side. That means you can rotate it multiple ways to keep a fresh surface available to your cat.
One concern I have is that it could be pretty small for some cats. You’ll notice several scenes in the advertising that show kittens playing with it, but when a full-grown orange tabby shows up the product is dwarfed. Rather than including a bonus 2nd unit, I would have preferred an option to upgrade to a larger unit, as I’ve seen similar sellers offer this choice online.
Most of the other triangular scratchers I’ve seen (see below) tend to have curved sides, which is said to be easier to scratch. Emery Cat Gym doesn’t have curved sides, but I don’t think that’s necessarily a deal-breaker.
Overall, Emery Cat Gym looks to be a solid cat scratcher, although it could be too small for larger cats. Hopefully they come out with a larger version and sell this in stores so you can evaluate it first-hand before making your purchase.
You may recognize the Emery Cat Gym’s triangular design, as there are numerous triangle cat scratchers on the market. This model by PetFusion, for example, has an impressive rating among hundreds of consumers and was a Cat Fancy award winner.
