I love cat scratchers that have an architectural quality and The Sky Scratcher is a perfect example. This brand new concept for a cardboard cat scratching tower was developed by Mike Estes from Portland, Oregon. The Sky Climber measures a full 37″ tall and is a serious piece of sculpture that kitty can sink her claws into. 125 layers of corrugated cardboard stack on a bamboo plywood base and center pole creating a structure that is reminiscent of the architecture of the iconic Chicago skyline.
The cardboard pads are held together without any glues or adhesives, making it easy to replace the pads as needed. Renewable, replaceable, and recyclable – what more could you ask for?
The Sky Scratcher is launching with a Kickstarter campaign. If you’re not familiar with Kickstarter, it is a way to launch a new project by creating a campaign and gathering supporters to help fund the initial development. By contributing to a Kickstarted project, you are helping small companies start up or grow, plus contributors always get special perks. In the case of the Sky Scratcher, contributors can get hand screen printed postcards ($5 contribution), t-shirts ($20), or even one of the first Sky Scratchers as soon as they are available ($150). If you’re a retailer looking to sell the Sky Scratcher in your store, there’s even an option for you. Visit the Sky Scratcher Kickstarter page for all the details and to make a contribution today. There’s only one week left to show your support for this awesome new cat product!
