Design: PS Gullholmen Scratcher
Price: Sisal rope: $5, PS Gullholmen chair from Ikea originally $60

Name: Darlyn
Location: Chicago
Pet's Names: Coco & Chanel
Size & Type: Domestic Longhaired Cats about 12 lbs. each

I've had the PS Gullholmen chair for 3 years, and the cats immediately adopted it. The back has an opening which makes the interior the perfect "cat pod." They also, unfortunately love the material it is made of and after a while the chair turned into one big scratching post... (More pics below the jump.)

After three years, it was pretty ripped up (but for those of you who can afford those expensive modern scratchers, buying a new chair every 3 years is no big deal). As for me, I've decided to completely catify the chair. A little sisal rope officially makes it the perfect scratcher. Plus, it is stll fully functional as extra seating! (For those of you who use regular litter boxes, buy a pair of these as a cat den and one to hide the litter box).

EXTRA! Pet design you covet most or what would you buy for your pet if you had all the money in the world: If I had all the money in the world I'd likely get a custom made cabinet that would fit the litter robot on one side, and my TV on the other, hopefully hiding both. In the real world, I'm currently lusting over the Alessi Tigrito Cat Bowl and the Itchyknee Faux Fur-lined Wall Barrel.

Thanks, Darlyn!
