Table of Contents


Cats scraper

  • Rectangular thin cardboard container.
  • Fine marine rope.
  • Sheets of newspaper.
  • Silicone floor.
  • Silicone bars.
  • Scissors.
  • Zeal.

Our Process

First, we will cut the small opening of the container to remove the interior. With this small excess we will cut out a rectangle. Then, we will fill the inside of the rectangular container of newspaper to make it much harder and stronger.

With the cardboard rectangle that we had made before, we will close the container completely with the help of a little tape so that it is totally airtight and the cat does not access the interior. Then, we are winding the rope throughout the container, fixing well with silicone the ends and the key points of the scraper so that the rope does not come loose.
