The best cardboard cat scratcher is the cheapest cardboard cat scratcher

My cat absolutely loves these $8 cardboard cat scratchers. They go straight into the recycling bin, so why spend a penny more than necessary?

I tried one of the $25 lounger-style cardboard cat scratchers and my picky cat wouldn't go near it. I put out a simple, flat and cheap one? Scratch city. My furniture and carpets are mercifully left alone while these get torn up every 4-6 weeks.

Last night, as I was rubbing the catnip into a new scratcher, my cat decided he wanted to be pet. He ended up pretty covered in catnip and rocketing around the house for 20 minutes.

Awesome 1106 piece LEGO Star Wars BB-8

This 1106 piece LEGO BB-8 will be my daughter and her cousins' Thanksgiving Day project.

I am clearly thrilled with my daughter's LEGO addiction and her dedication to Star Wars. Her slightly younger cousin is also a giant Star Wars aficionado, although he does not yet know that word, and a fantastic LEGO builder. I'm pretty sure this kit will only take them a few hours.

I would love the largest C1-10P kit LEGO will make.
