Cement and cardboard. It doesn’t get any more Moderncat than that! This is the brand new Skiitch modern cat scratching post from the designers at Kassen, and I’m completely in love. Designed in the style of Brutalist architecture, Skiitch is made with roughly angled heavy-duty corrugated cardboard mounted on a sturdy cement base. Measuring 32 inches tall, Skiitch looks like it would really take a beating from the toughest of cats, all the while looking like an incredible piece of modernist sculpture in your living room.
Skiitch will set you back $145, but that includes shipping to the US and Canada, which can’t be inexpensive with a 20 lb. cement base. Cardboard replacements are apparently available separately.
