If a cat-friendly table isn’t enough for your feline friends, then perhaps you should consider getting a cat-friendly shelf too. Never mind that ornaments/photo frames and cats aren’t exactly the best combination because Cat-friendly Transparent Display Rack is a thing in Japan. The shelf from Dinos Corporation is specially designed for two things: display your stuff and a place for exploration for cats.
The Cat-friendly Transparent Display Rack is no ordinary shelf. The display rack combines transparent acrylic steps and storage shelves that let you enjoy your furry child’s underside as it lazes, climbs, and stretches on the rack. Meanwhile, the frame is crafted by skillful craftsmen from Tsubams Sanjo (燕三条エリア), Niigata, a region famous for metal products since the Edo period.
The depth of each shelf is deep enough to allow for the display of items while leaving enough room for the kitty to pass. The same goes for the height between each shelf, which can be adjusted in 6 cm (2.36 inches) intervals if desired. Altogether there are five shelves of which four are transparent acrylics. I imagine kitties will love scaling those shelves.
The Cat-friendly Transparent Display Rack is available in two flavors: 60 cm wide and 80 cm wide models, and it comes flat-pack, which means assembly is required on your part.
The Cat-friendly Transparent Display Rack is available from dinos.co.jp with a starting price of 89,990 yen (about US$658)
