New from Ikea: Products for Cats

New from Ikea (and so clever we’re surprised the company hadn’t thought of this before): the Lurvig collection of good-looking, affordable products for pets. (“Lurvig” means “shaggy” in Swedish.) Offerings for cats include a scratching post that wraps around a table leg, a washable litter pan, and a sleeping pod (with scratching surface) on legs. Let’s take a closer look at the offerings.

(If you’re a canine fan instead, stay tuned for our post on dog products, launching next week.)

The signature piece in the cat collection is the Cat House on Legs ($54.98 as shown, and $49.99 without the cushion). The front has a sisal-blend scratching pad for cats to work their claws, and the piece can be used as a nightstand or side table, as shown.

The cat house is versatile: If you discard the legs, the painted fiberboard box can be mounted directly on the wall or tucked inside Ikea’s separate Kallax system of square shelving units.

The Lurvig Scratching Mat wraps around any table leg and secures with black straps, turning the dining table into an instant scratching post; $5.99.

The Lurvig Litter Tray ($4.99) doubles as both a litter box and a cat bed (but not at the same time). The high sides of the tray help keep litter from escaping when it’s used as a toilet. But add a Lurvig Cushion ($7.99) and the tray becomes a washable bed for cats or dogs.

The Pet Travel Bag is suitable for both cats and small dogs; it folds flat for storage, has windows on both the top and ends, and both ends open completely for easy retrieval of your pet; $24.99.
