Now that I no longer live in a dog-unfriendly apartment, I’m counting the days til we can adopt our very own dog. I love imagining my cats riding regally on the back of their new canine best pal. That’s probably not going to happen, especially knowing how possessive and obsessed P. Kitty is with me; I’ll be lucky if she doesn’t try to climb on our future dog’s back to attack him/her. So maybe the answer is Lumpi, a dog-shaped cat scratcher by designer Erik Stehmann. Lumpi is made from polyester resin wrapped in sisal cord; the better for sharp claws to dig in and get a satisfying yank. German pet product sellers Lumpi, called DOG on its site, for $607.11 (gulp!) and explains “it also allows your cat to sharp their claws on their natural ‘enemy’. For us, this dog is not only a very practical scratching post, but rather an absolute design-must-have.”
Or, maybe we’ll just have to wrap our future dog in rope armor…?
