There are many reasons to bond with KATRIS

Help protect environment

For us, the key to minimize our impact on the environment is two-fold: Using recycled materials and making long lasting products. Our paper is sourced from 90% post consumer and 10 percent FSC certified paper. Including the non toxic glue between the sheets, the whole product is recyclable. In addition to using post consumer and recyclable materials, we make better products with longer life cycles to minimize energy and resource consumption.

Resistance in a cat scratcher

Cats scratch for many reasons and we should encourage this behavior by creating an outlet for their natural needs. Resistance in a cat scratcher is very important to satisfy these needs. It allows cats to stretch their bodies and strength their muscles with good support. With resistance, they can dig their claws into the material and shed their old claw sheets. The material should be strong enough to resist these downward forces. Creating the necessary resistance with the corrugated cardboard means using a dense and high quality paper with minimum spacing in between the sheets.

Modular means more movement

“Environmental enrichment” or “enhancement” is necessary to create stimulation and recreation for the indoor cats to maintain their emotional and physical wellbeing.* Modularity brings change to their familiar environment and this enables them to explore something new each time: How to climb, how to scratch, how to sleep, how to hide. Carefully designed shapes allows interlocking from 4 sides. This allows you to create larger surfaces for your cat to lounge on while making stable combinations.

Quality of the Material

Understanding and building quality means many things for our brand from supporting the cat’s health to decreasing our negative impact on the environment. We performed a series of tests on our products as well as some competitors’ products to prove our lead in quality. In order to perform an equal and insightful comparison, we created a specialized “scratching machine.”

Shred Less, Last Longer

KATRIS was able to yield a significantly more intact, less worn scratching surface than the competitors after the same amount of scratches. KATRIS’ material produced a tenth of the shredding amount of Competitor #1, and 2 times less shredding amount than Competitor #2.

The power of buying less by buying better

We are a brand that believes in the importance of buying quality instead of quantity. For us, the value of a product comes from the connections built around it. It is important for us to create products, every stage of which is carefully designed. With better products, we could provide fuller experiences for the user while having a minimum impact on the environment after its life cycle is finished.
