The rivalry of cats vs. dogs has been one of the most legendary in history. While dogs may seem to pose more of a threat due to their size compared to their feline counterparts, are they really much more intimidating? Now, thanks to Netherlands-based designer Erik Stehmann, cats can get a leg up on the competition by taking out pent up fear or aggression on new dog-shaped scratch posts. The post, simply named DOG, resembles an average-sized canine upon which cats can lie, scratch, or simply train for their next bout with their enemy while still protecting your furniture. Though after watching the video, it’s hard to tell if there’s much of a rivalry at all.
