Created using Katsushika Hokusai’s iconic The Great Wave off Kanagawa woodblock print, this is a cat scratcher in a 3D form of the masterpiece. Released by the Cat Club division of Japanese lifestyle brand Felissimo, the scratcher sells for around $90. It’s certainly not the cheapest cat scratcher, but it does look like it belongs in a museum.
The scratcher measures approximately 24″ long, 16″ tall, and 8″ deep, and Felissimo insists that not only is it a great scratching post, but the concave shape of the wave makes it a good place to curl up and take a cat nap as well. I’m already yawning just thinking about it.
So, is this going to be the first in a series of fine art turned cat scratchers? Only time will tell. Well time, and people’s willingness to spend money on them. I feel like the cost of anything I buy for my cat is inversely proportional to how much she actually uses it. At $90 I doubt this will even warrant a second glance. The box it’s shipped in? She’ll sleep in it for years.
