At €169 ($250) each, these Copycat Art Scratchers are an expensive way for your cat to stay entertained while you’re at work all day. But, relatively speaking, they’re a lot cheaper than your cat destroying an actual priceless piece of artwork like da Vinci’s Mona Lisa or Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Designed to turn scratching posts into an aesthetically-pleasing part of any decor, the canvas used for these faux masterpieces is made from an embroidered twine — the same material used on a more traditional scratching post. So it should survive an onslaught from your cat’s claws, at least for a little while.
Available in three designs, the scratch-friendly paintings can be shipped worldwide. However, delivery is expected to take about four weeks, which is unfortunately more than enough time for a bored cat to easily turn a couch into a pile of shredded fabric.
