Today I would like to tell you about an original product: the Alpha Paw Scratchy Ramp Cat Ramp and Cat Scratcher.
The originality of this product is that it is 2-in-1: it serves both as an exercise ramp for your cat but also as a scratching pad.
About Alpha Paw
Alpha Paw is a very young company founded in 2018 by a dog lover, Ramon van Meer, who has a passion for rescuing abandoned dogs.
Alpha Paw’s mission is to provide the best pet products on the market. Each product is carefully tested by the
Alpha Paw team to guarantee the buyer maximum reliability.
First specialized in products for dogs, Alpha Paw also offers products for cats.
Their best seller is the PawRamp, a ramp for dogs, which allows them to reach the bed or sofa in the living room without getting hurt.
It is recommended by veterinarians and more than 400 5-star reviews have already been issued on their website.
The product we are testing today is the adaptation of this product for cats.
The Scratchy Ramp: A 2-in-1 Product
As we said in the introduction, this product is both an access ramp for your cat and a place where he will be able to do his claws in complete peace of mind.
No More Jumping on the Sofa!
The access ramp will allow your cat to access the couch or your bed without being injured. As we all know, cats love to come on our lap when we are watching television! And when the evening comes, they love to come in bed and spend the night with us…
Yes, but that’s it, they can hurt themselves by jumping… A bad reception is so fast for our intrepid little felines!
With the Scratchy Ramp, no more worries: kitty will be able to reach the sofa of the living room safely!
The ramp can be tilted to adapt to all furniture heights. So you can use the Scratchy Ramp in any situation! 2 heights are provided: 12 and 16 inches.
A Quiet Place to Scratch
But this ramp also acts as a cat scratcher. A rug made of durable material will allow kitty to scratch as long as she wants, without damaging your furniture!
This carpet will also allow her to climb on the ramp without fear of falling, thanks to its scratching material.
The carpet is easy to replace: you just have to slide it out of its housing and replace it with a new one. Of course, the carpet can be purchased separately.
The manufacturer specifies that the scratch carpet is 1/4 inch thick. It should last long enough, especially since it offers a large scratching surface.
Obviously, if you have several cats, it will reduce the duration of use.
A Solid and Durable Structure
First good surprise: you won’t have to assemble the Scratchy Ramp yourself. The Scratchy Ramp will be delivered to you already assembled and ready to use.
Another good surprise: the materials used are solid, the wood is of good quality. You can see that this ramp is designed to last and to support even the largest breeds of cats and even a small dog. The owners of Ragdolls or Maine Coons will be happy!
The size of the Scratchy Ramp is 32.5″ length and 14″ width. It can support a weight of up to 65 lbs.
A Ramp that Can Be Easily Stowed Away
Since it is foldable, you can easily store the Scratchy Ramp when not in use, under your bed or elsewhere. It will take up less space than your ironing board!
What Do those Who Bought the Scratchy Ramp Think?
On the manufacturer’s website, more than 400 reviews have been left, averaging 4.8 stars! That proves the quality of the product, doesn’t it?
Consumers particularly appreciated the quality of the ramp’s construction and its 2-in-1 use.
But cats are also in love with this ramp: the scratching mat is very appreciated (some use it only for that).
One owner even reported the fact that thanks to the Scratchy Ramp, his cat had stopped butchering the sofa!
Owners of older cats are also satisfied, as the ramp allows them to reach places they no longer go because of their advanced age.
In short, the Scratchy Ramp has changed their lives in some ways!
The Scratchy Ramp Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Scratchy Ramp Exclusively for Cats?
No, it is strong enough to accommodate a small dog. And of course, if you have a large breed of cat, it will fit perfectly.
How Long Will the Scratch Carpet Last?
If you have only one cat, the life of the carpet will be quite long, because as we mentioned above, it is quite thick and the scratching surface is important.
If one area is worn out, your cat will be able to scratch next to it, which increases the life span of the scratch carpet.
Where is the Scratchy Ramp Made?
Like many of our everyday objects, the Scratchy Ramp is made in China. But the design of the product is 100% American.
Alpha Paw Scratchy Ramp: One Final Word
The Scratchy Ramp could well be the ultimate cat scratcher, but also the ultimate cat ramp!
This 2-in-1 product succeeds in being both a quality, solid and well-made access ramp, but also a very good cat scratcher, which offers a very large scratching surface that you can replace once kitty has torn it apart.
The only small criticism one could make of the Scratchy Ramp is that it’s a bit expensive, but that’s a bit of a price to pay for quality.
Think about the life span of the product: it will last without any problem for the whole life of your cat. Besides, it is probably the only ramp you will buy for your favorite feline… and the only cat scratcher too!
