General Information

Thank you for viewing our Amazon version of the Ripple Rug. We have increased our price on Amazon to cover fees, lost inventory, abusive returns and fake eBay sellers. The Ripple Rug is a versatile pet / cat activity mat designed to meet your cat's natural instincts. It's a first of its kind invention. *Visit the official Ripple Rug site to watch videos in action!* It meets all 5 pillars of a healthy feline environment; a safe haven, a predatory play space, an environment allowing positive human interaction. It respects a cat's sense of smell, and is a place to rest and recover. 'Made in the USA' using 100% recycled plastic bottles, it's strong and durable, soft, yet perfect for kitty claws or teeth. Your cat will love the coziness of the ripples to sleep + snuggle in or on top. You can reshape it anytime to give your cat a new play space. The touch points allow for simple 'lift and release' so you can easily create new shapes. Change it daily, or leave alone and watch your cat reshape it, by pushing against it. The varied sized holes act as tunnels and hideouts, holes can be expanded. Cats love hiding inside or stalking you. Don't be surprised if they jump out to tap your leg and pounce as you walk by. The small holes are perfect for a cat to stick their paws through and play with you. All medium to large holes have safety slits for larger cat expansion. The non-slip rubber bottom is insulated; providing a cozy bed that deadens sound; NO POWER REQUIRED. It's Non-Toxic; Mold, Mildew, + Stain resistant. It has been laboratory tested. Wash with just soap and water. Unlike large cat furniture, it folds up for easy storage. It's super light, making it very portable for indoor/outdoor use. Move it around from room to room, give your cat "its own" place near you. This is especially great when working on my laptop, our cat loves sitting on the rug instead of my keyboard. Your cat will love it and so will you! We are proud to say it is 'MADE IN THE USA'.

Pros: Cat loves it
Great for interactive play
Easy to clean
Easy to store
Cons: Price
Needs a bit more structure (too floppy)
I ordered the Ripple Rug on Amazon without realizing there were two versions, and that I would be getting "version 1" instead of "version 2". This is important, because my cat adores this rug but I am getting frustrated with how floppy the top piece is. Apparently the manufacturer has addressed this issue in "version 2", which is only available by direct order through their website (i.e. not Amazon). I'm giving 4 stars because my kitten is all about his Ripple Rug and especially loves to chase toys as I pull them in and out of the holes. This rug brings out his most energetic, focused play, which is a joy. I'm taking off a star because he quickly flattens the rug and then I have to stick my hands in there and risk blood loss to recreate space for him to play. If you plan to get this I suggest going for the newer version with a stiffer top piece that is better at retaining structure (or so I hear).

Works well as a bed
Cons: Too flat
Tunnels, etc. don't really form
Cats get bored within 10 minutes
I was so excited to buy a Ripple Rug for my foster kitties. Since money is tight in fostering, I coveted the Ripple Rug for a long time before I had the funds to buy it. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed in the product, and now it sits neatly folded under a pile of cat linens.
I loved the idea of being able to configure caves and tunnels and hide things in them to entice and entertain the kitties. Unfortunately, the Ripple Rug is far softer than I thought, and no matter how many ways I velcroed the pieces together, I couldn't create the stiff walls that I always saw in advertisements. Because the "cave openings" flopped flat, neither cats nor kittens were interested in crawling in. They'd dig out the toy I had hiding, and then lay on the flat carpet and fall asleep. Basically, I bought a $40 cat bed. I bring out the Ripple Rug every few months to a new group of kittens or cats, and it's always the same thing. About 15 minutes of interest and then hours of snoozing on top. What a shame. I plan to go to a fabric store and get some type of stiff fabric to sew inside the Ripple Rug to encourage it to stand up at the holes, but I'm not much of a sewer so I haven't attempted this yet. I'm a foster mama who loves to buy toys for my little charges, and I was very, very disappointed in the Ripple Rug.

Pros: Can be used for playtime or as a bed or even scratching pad
Cons: Price
This consists of two mats - the upper one has holes of various sizes in it and can be reconfigured endlessly to create tunnels and hidey holes.  Chula likes to chase the red dot into the holes and then hide.  She'll then suddenly poke her head out.  The holes can be cut and expanded for larger cats like Paul.  You can hide things in the holes or pull things through them for playtime that is always different.

 It is a little difficult to get the folds to stand up until you get the hang of it.  Generous applications of velcro help the rug to stay in position but it does take a little while to get them all in place so the folds stand up and the tunnels don't collapse.

The material is very cat friendly.  Both of my cats like to stretch out on it and use it for a quick scratching pad and Paul often sleeps on it.  The color is neutral so goes with everything.

It rolls up and can easily be put away.

The price is an issue.  I thought it was expensive when I bought mine and the price has gone up $5.00.  


Got one about 4 months ago. When dragging a string around the house sometimes run it in and out of
a couple holes in the rug. She seems to like digging into it whenever the end of the string vanishes. Also hide
some of her little toys under it. Bought a bag of small rubber lizards off Amazon and leave them around the house
including under the rug, but with just a little of the lizard showing. Rubber lizards and small bathroom rugs tend to
travel around this house.
Hi everyone, I'm Fred, the inventor of the Ripple Rug. I saw this review and wanted to add some info with regard to the pricing increase. We offer 2 versions of Ripple Rug. On Amazon is Version 1 @$44 (the original version), on our website, and in pet stores is Version 2, the newest, latest and greatest; @$39.99. Version 2 has many improvements, most noticeably, round corners and stiffer carpet. We raised our price on Amazon to cover the heavy fees they charge, no other reason than that.  We offer fast free shipping in the US. Our website or a local pet store is the least expensive option for purchase. Thanks everyone for having fun with the Ripple Rug. Watch our cats gone wild series to see it in action.
