Moderncat Etsy Find: Creative Kitty Scratching Pod from Tattoo Dreams

Creative Kitty Scratcher

Etsy seller Tattoo Dreams brings original art to the cardboard cat scratcher with this one-of-a-kind Creative Kitty Scratching Pod. Each scratch pod base is individually handcrafted from domestic hardwood and decorated with funky graphics. The insert is made of the highest quality corrugated cardboard and can be flipped over for twice the wear. Small feet on the bottom of the base elevate the scratchier slightly and give it extra stability on carpet.

This design has been subjected to rigorous testing by Tugger and Milo. The scratching pod is 7 inches wide by 17 inches long, the perfect size for kitty to scratch or lounge on, and it comes with a little bag of organic catnip to get kitty going.

$45 US, available from the Tattoo Dreams Etsy shop.

    Yes, very trio. I’m lovin’ the idea that the base is made of hardwood. Kush has to use his weight on one end of his flimsy scratcher to keep it from flying under the stenght of his fron paws.

    Is the orange kitty yours? I’m asking because we are in the process of adopting a cat and also have leather couches (similar to the one in the picture) and I was wondering if you ever had issues with the cat scratching the leather. If you have a good scratching post, do the cats leave your couches and other furniture alone? Sorry if this is a lame-o question, we are first time cat owners. :)

    I got one of these for my parents’ new kitty awhile back. It has held up really well, and their cat loves it! Plus, it’s got unique art stamps all over it. Handmade, very spiffy and well worth the price.

    Your feline will love this scratcher! Beautiful to look at and engineered to last. And, after a vigorous scratching, our cats like to nap on it.

    I need to start making cat furniture, I can’t believe people are paying that much for stuff that doesn’t even re-fillable pads & parts. Or, are they?

    In reply to Angela- yes, the orange kitty is ours. That’s our Milo. I build these scratching pod frames and my wife stamps the designs on them. Our cats really prefer cardboard, since it gets soft like an old pair of blue jeans. Only a couple of times has one of our cats made a mark on the leather sofa with their claws. It was really more of a stretch than a clawing-to-mark-your-turf type of move.

    The cardboard insert is packed tightly into the frame so there is little fear it will completely shred. One can easily remove the strips and flip them over to continue the fun. If necessary, I can supply replacement strips too. I designed this surface to be longer than the average cardboard scratcher found at pet stores. Big boy Milo likes having that extra length to stretch out.

    Thanks to Modern Cat for this prime feature. These scratchers are a hit!

    My two cats LOVE their Tattoo Dreams scratching pod! Even with a basket of misc toys accumulated over the years, this is their absolutely favorite activity – and the catnip is a real bonus. And the stamping design is beautiful. Thanks for a terrific, practical product!

    I am now the proud owner of two of these pods. My cats ADORE them. The best thing is that they look so great. I have so many compliments from them. I even bought one as a x-mas present this year. This is a must have for any can owner!!!

    I know these tigers and I can say they are as lovely and contented as they seem. And I love their human slaves, as well. =-)

    What a marvellous looking scratcher. My cats love their scratching post but have been looking for something a bit different for them. I might look into getting one for them.

    Thanks to your fine promotion of this article, it is now sold how. :-)
    I’m sure this Etsy seller is happy.

    However, cat owners, do not despair… you can make a DIY version that’s just as good, as we’ll explore on our blog next week.

    Meanwhile, crocheters will have to be happy with a free crochet cat bed tutorial featured here
    A fun project for the weekend ~ your cat will be all over it.
