Mioou: Modern Cat Furniture Designed by an Architect

Animal lover Katarzyna Galicka-Szer launched the Mioou brand of cat furniture – scratching houses, tunnels, and posts – with her three cats in mind. Knowing cats are going to scratch, Galicka-Szer decided to merge her architecture background with the needs of her cats and create a collection of handmade scratchers both you and your cat will love. Instead of ripping your furniture to shreds, your cats can now happily scratch away on a Tula Scratching House, Tito Scratching Tunnel, or Lila Scratching Post, all made from cardboard, felt, and jute. The scratchers come in warm colors and natural materials that can easily live within any aesthetic, while offering your cats feelings of security and a fun place to play, relax, and sleep.

Each design is lightweight and easy to move around when needed – they even have jute rope handles on the top for carrying around.
