Andrew Lewis, the founder of D&C (Dogs and Cats) Lifestyle and creator of the Original Cat Condo, has been searching worldwide for original and creative pet products which are fashionable but designed to be practical and useful to pets.
In his quest he came across the Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher which was created by product designer and entrepreneur (businessman) Jed Crystal who is based in Vermont, USA.
It did not take much convincing on my behalf to contact Andrew at D& C Lifestyle after hearing my mother say to our cat, “Bella, what you do to our kitchen chairs is called vandalism.” So true!
I had to rescue what was left of our kitchen chairs, so I made arrangements for the delivery of one Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher.
Made from scratch, the Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher will entice your kitty cat to do what it does best; and that is to scratch!
Giving your cat a Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher to scratch for a living would be the best purchase you’ve made. It is versatile; putting your cat in a position to scratch high or low.
I’m pleased to report that Bella loves her Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher and we are too! If you have polished floor boards, as we do, you’ll find that the Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher will slide when used by your cat. This is because it is so light weight. You will need to place a slip-mat under it or position it against a wall.

Price of Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher
If you’re worried about the cost of purchase, then think how worried you would really be if you had to foot the bill for the repair of your lounge/kitchen chairs. I guarantee that the Hepper Hi-Lo cat Scratcher would be a cheaper option.
By the way, cats love to scratch mattresses too. Here I speak from experience.
The Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher is very easy to put together. The instruction manual is so simple to follow as you are shown how to assemble the Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher with step by step illustrated (pictorial) instructions. You are supplied with two sides, two rectangular spaces, 8 screws, wrench (also known as an Allen key or hex key) and plenty of corrugated cardboard parts.
You can replace the cardboard when needed. Usually the scratcher cardboard will last around 12 months, depending on how ‘scratch happy’ your feline (cat) is.
What is the Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher made from?
The frame is made from Baltic Birch Plywood that compresses recycled corrugated cardboard; corrugated means that the cardboard has been shaped into alternate ridges and grooves.
Why use Baltic Birch Plywood?
There are many species of Birch but Baltic Birch is most sought after. Mainly white throughout its structure, the wood of Baltic Birch is light weight and flexible. This is the reason why it is favored as plywood. Plywood consists of two or more layers of strong thin wooden board which is glued and pressed together; each layers grain is alternated.
For those of you who are thinking of getting a sweet little kitten……..beware! They grow fast and it’s in a moggy’s (cat’s) nature to use their claws for climbing, digging and scratching.
Of course, those claws become lethal weapons whether they are for self-defense or the cat just has a nasty disposition.
I also know that you can’t reason with a cat. They certainly have a mind of their own.
So, the only way you are going to win a losing battle in stopping your cat from destroying your furniture is to give it something else to focus on; such as the Hepper Hi-Lo Cat Scratcher.
