An Exact Replica of the Mona Lisa – FOR YOUR CATS TO SCRATCH!


A Copycat Art Scratcher (going for roughly $190) is expensive as scratching posts go, but buying one a month is “a lot cheaper than your cat destroying an actual priceless piece of artwork,” says Andrew Liszewski who works at Gizmodo.

Dutch designer Erik Stehmann had lost only an embroidered painting to his pets’ claws when he decided that he might be able to rechannel their artistic interests and did that very thing by reproducing famous paintings on embroidered twine.

It is an exact replica of the Mona Lisa and it will be the first scratch-board offered when the product begins shipping in May.

Vermeer’s Girl With a Pearl Earring is next in the plan.
