Modern cat products are springing up all around the world. The latest offering is from a new company called KittiCraft, located in South Africa. KittiCraft launched with an impressive line of perches, beds, and scratchers all made using CNC laser cut cardboard and MDF. To reduce shipping costs, most items ship flat-packed and are assembled by the customer with no tools or glue required. There are some interesting variations on existing cat products as well as some brilliant new concepts.
First, check out the Universal KittiMount System, two different wall-mounted perches both featuring a replaceable cardboard scratching surface. The perches are being modeled here by KittiCraft’s two Abby mascots, Moon and Kiara.
There are also several very cool looking cat beds, some with hideaways inside and others with perches on top. The beds come with heavy-duty cotton cushions that attach to the frame.
Two styles of cat hammocks each come with a reversible cotton sling that looks quite cozy.
What intrigues me the most are the hanging cat beds. Like beautiful suspended nests, these beds can hang from the ceiling or on a free-standing frame.
KittiCraft is also making some very attractive cardboard scratching posts. These posts are assembled using a similar method as the original Moderncat Studio Scratch Tower, however KittiCraft has developed some nice design variations.
In addition to the scratching posts, there is a whole line of cardboard scratch furniture. Choose from several sleek shapes that look like modern sculptures. Made with double wall corrugated cardboard and non-toxic glue.
Finally, the KittiCraft scratch pads provide a nice wide, flat scratching surface that can go anywhere.
All prices on the KittiCraft website are listed in South African Rand, but you can easily find out the prices in USD by using the currency converter on their site. Prices range from about $50 US for the scratch pads to $400 for the larger beds. It looks like they are only shipping within South Africa at this time, but I will be sure to let you know if these products become available worldwide.
