TICKLE MONSTER / dog&cat house


This idea was inspired by my dog, who loves having her tummy tickled.

People who own cats or dogs see their animals scratch every day. Often, pets have difficulty reaching their itchy areas on their own, not to mention the fact that they cannot even ask for assistance. The other thing you might notice is that dogs and cats are always trying to play with, bite and catch various objects around them. The “TICKLE MONSTER” was designed for these lovely creatures to help them scratch themselves, as well as being a fun toy that can be played with. Of course, it also provides a place for your pet to sleep.
