Kassen Lifestyle Creates the Definitive, Modern Cat-Scratch Post with Skiitch.

Kassen Lifestyle has has proved with the Skiitch that the modern lifestyle can finally coexist with the cats in your life, all without sacrificing modern aesthetics and great design.

The Skiitch cat-scratch post provides 28 inches of vertical and nine inches of horizontal scratching area, which is made from a specially laminated corrugate structure designed specifically to provide the ideal surface for scratching, as well as stretching.

In addition, the corrugate structure is mounted on a 20-lb. cement base that eliminates all measures of instability, making it an irresistible target for your cats.

I designed the Skiitch based on a cats’ scratching behavior: They wanted to stretch and scratch, and they wanted an immobile yet tactile object to use. The cats rejected traditional, carpeted scratching posts, which also clashed with and sense of modern décor. The Skiitch, on the other hand, combines true Modernist design principles with real utility. The Skiitch cat-scratch post means it’s not too late to save your furniture.
