Cats have claws, and they aren’t afraid to use them. They will scratch up your rugs, furniture, even fine works of art, all to file down their claws. Never give your cat access to a priceless works of art. Ask Dutch interior designer Erik Stehmann. His cats used an embroidered painting in his home as a scratching post. But it gave him a great idea.
This little disaster inspired Erik to come up with a very cool idea. That idea is Copycat Art Scratchers, scratching posts that look like classic works of art. Now Fluffy thinks he or she is tearing up a famous painting, but the joke is on him/her.
Now you can have the best of both worlds; fine art that a cat can trash. Let your cat destroy famous works like the Mona Lisa, Girl With a Pearl Earring, or Still Life with Flowers in a Glass Vase. Sadly, they cost about $192(USD) each, which would buy you a whole lot of thrift shop art.
