CatIt Style Ornamental Cat Scratchers from Hagen Bring Style to the Traditional Cat Accessory
MANSFIELD, Mass. – Generations of family felines have grown up with the traditional scratcher – a strictly utilitarian item made of corrugated cardboard designed to keep cats from scratching up the furniture and infused with catnip to attract cats to use it. But what if a cat scratcher could be aesthetically pleasing to humans and still be useful to a cat? CatIt Style’s new Ornamental Cat Scratchers from the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. go beyond the typical cardboard cat scratcher, resembling decorative works of art that a cat can scratch to her heart’s content.
In styles that rival high-end objet d’art, the vase-shaped Ornamental Cat Scratchers combine unique design symmetry with functionality and aesthetics for a contemporary approach. At first glance no one would guess they are cat scratchers, but as attractive as they are, the Ornamental Cat Scratchers are designed to be irresistible to cats. They are covered with a special feline-attracting low-shred corn-husk and sisal rope blend into which cats can sink their claws, satisfying their natural scratching instinct and saving furniture and upholstery. For added enticement, the rope may be sprayed with catnip spray.
The hollow center of the Ornamental Cat Scratchers allows placement of sand or small pebbles for extra stability while in use. It also lends itself to additional decorating possibilities, as it is ideal for adding artificial plants or flowers to the Ornamental Cat Scratchers for enhanced visual appeal, and turning an attractive accent piece into a true focal point of any room.
The CatIt Style Ornamental Cat Scratchers are available in two designs – Hourglass, which stands approximately 18” tall and has a 14” base; and Vase, 13 ½” tall with a 14” base. Both are a subtle warm gray color with a natural corn husk and sisal rope scratching surface, with an MSRP of $29.99. They are available online and at pet retailers nationwide.
