This is absurdly…absurd. I picked up two of the Ikea Sindal floor mats for $4.99 each at the Tampa Ikea store.
As you can see from the comparison, Grimmy is standing on the new mat, upon which I’ve laid an EXPENSIVE store-bought cat-scratch mat.
Which is less than HALF the size, and about two-thirds MORE than the Ikea mat.
Not to mention, the Ikea mat has a latex backing on it that keeps it from sliding, whereas the cat-scratch mat will slide on smooth floors (and on carpet).
I’m kicking myself that I only bought two of the darn things while I was there. When I go back, I’m going to buy a BUNCH of them. The cats were all over them when I got them home and put them down.
