The Great Wave cat scratching post gives your cat space to “hang ten” in retro ukiyo-e woodblock print style.
The Great Wave Off Kanagawa is the first print of Hokusai's woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. Dating from the early part of the 19th century, the dynamic image of a huge rogue wave poised to swamp three fishing boats is usually the first thing people think of when asked about traditional Japanese art.
Now thanks to the clever and creative folks at Felissimo's Neko-bu (Cat Club), “The Masterpiece Art Cat Claw Post” will be the first thing your cat thinks of when they get the urge to sharpen their claws.
This beautiful and practical item measures 59cm (23.25”) wide by 40cm (15.75”) tall and 20cm (7.75”) deep. The sculpted “filling” is composed of heavy laminated cardboard that provides pleasurable resistance for clawing cats while minimizing dirt and debris.
The scalloped form of the scratching block follows the complex curves of Hokusai's formidable waves while providing your cat – who doesn't really care much for art – with a form-fitting resting place that lets them peacefully snooze while becoming one with this classic artwork. Much scratch; so Zen!
The Masterpiece Art Cat Claw Post includes a non-slip sticker that can be affixed to the base when installed on hardwood, ceramic or linoleum floors.
Felissimo donates a small portion of each Neko-bu item purchase to a special fund dedicated to protecting, sheltering and finding forever homes for stray and owner-less cats. So, like, you scratch their backs and they'll scratch yours, or something... it's for a good cause, it what we're trying to say!
