About

Hi. My name is Erik DeLeo, and I started my company Organikat to make well-designed eco and organic products for cats that were also good for the planet. I started off my professional career as an advertising copywriter, but got bit by the entrepreneurial bug a few years ago. Long story short, I was out shopping with a friend at a pet store and I realized that many of the cat products were not well conceived, poorly designed and made in countries that were known to have issues with pet product safety. So it was at that moment that Organikat was born.

We soft-launched our cat scratcher locally as proof-of-concept. Now we are ready to release the scratcher to the public with a patent-pending design. Not only do we not use tape or plastic, but our new version eliminates the need for adhesive. It's made solely out of 100% recycled cardboard. It's kind of like cat cardboard origami. Here's what it looks like in the flesh:

All of Organikat's products are made in the USA, including the cat scratcher which is made locally here in sunny Southern California. We have prototypes of the new scratcher and are all ready for production. We just your help to get things Kickstarted.

Here is the World's Greenest Cat Scratcher:

And here is our Mini Green Scratcher:

AND....Here is a sneak peak at a big design improvement. We have a patent-pending our scratchpad. An innovative tabbing system means no glue or adhesive needs to be used in our pad. It all tabs together, kind of like cardboard origami :)

Risks and challenges

We don't envision any production challenges or issues. We are working with an experienced vendor who has the necessary production capacity to fulfill any level of order. If, for some reason, an issue does come up, the vendor has years of print production experience to tackle such issues.

This vendor prints/creates millions of pieces a year and they're local to us...less than 40 minutes away.
