As an activist/public artist, I’ve spent two decades working to drive systemic change. But when COVID hit, I found myself sheltering-in-place with my kiddos, feeling utterly powerless. We decided to heal ourselves by adopting two Russian Blue kittens, brothers, and BFFs that we named Des and Das. Love at first sight.
One day, as we watched our kittens shred a cardboard scratcher, my daughter wondered aloud: “Mama, I so wish we could scratch 2020.” With that spark, our humble kitchen table business was born.
During these challenging times, we’re dedicated to supporting change agents and our heroic front line workers, donating to COVID relief, cat rescues, and the progressive causes you care about with Every. Single. Scratch. While your cat is having a BLAST, know that you’re helping us create the world that lives up to your ideals.
We are fast approaching the most important election in our lifetime. For the love of our country, our planet, and everything we hold dear, VOTE. It matters.
Onward. Onward. Onward
