I purchased this for my kitty Natasha last year for Christmas. I hesitated due to the price. However if I had known how much she would love it I would have paid even more. My kitty is snooty! I cannot tell you how many items I have purchased for her over the years to entertain her and returned them due to total disinterest! She dove on this chaise the minute I sat it on the floor. Sat on it, rolled on it, laid on it. I took a ton of photos as it was so amazing. I don't know what it is about this chaise as it is simply sturdy cardboard. Must be the shape. It is worth every penney. She uses it constantly. Even sleeps on it! These photos were taken within minutes of setting it down.
