Felissimo The Great Wave scratcher for cats


Cat lovers would agree on one thing: felines deserve the best that money can buy. As such, the Cat Club of Felissimo is giving all cat owners a chance to pamper their cars with a The Great Wave scratcher. The beautiful scratching board will make your cat’s afternoon nap seem like a work of art itself.


Felissimo’s The Great Wave scratcher for cats


Felissimo has multiple subdivisions. There’s the Cat Club, which is all about making cat-themed products. There’s also the Museum Club, which focuses on all things related to Japan’s traditional culture.

These 2 departments appear vastly dissimilar initially. But in June, the most unexpected crossover happened.

The 2 departments came together to create a beautiful cat scratcher inspired by the iconic The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

The scratcher is made of corrugated fibreboard, which allows your cat to scratch and sharpen its claws to its heart’s content.

The roughly 20cm-wide wavy platform also makes for a comfortable cat-napping spot. Meanwhile, the approximately 40cm x 59cm backdrop of The Great Wave will transform your cat’s ordinary snooze into a sublime sight.

The aesthetic cat scratcher costs ¥9,875 (~USD88.89). For each scratcher sold, ¥250 (~USD2.25) will be donated to the Felissimo Cat Fund. The fund goes towards helping cats in need.
