The Interactive Cat Pedicure by The Emery Cat Board

Cats claws better be sharp if they spend time outdoors; claws are cats' main weapons of defense. 

A cat pedicure is just the thing for indoor cats, but with the new EmeryCat, you don't have to face a torrent of screams and hisses to clip and sand your cats' nails. Your cat does his own pedicure with this interactive EmeryCat board.

Cats love to scratch, and generally, scratching posts or scratching steps are made out of cardboard, sisal, wood, or carpet help to keep a cat's nails sharp.   But the EmeryCat, which is also made with the aforementioned materials, adds the big emery board (aka sandpaper) to the mix, so that the claws are actually being dulled or softened as cats scratch it.  To make the EmeryCat even more appealing to kitty, you can lace the honeycombed surface with the catnip that comes with the EmeryCat board.

It's the 2007 winner of Everyday Edisons, Michael Diep, who has brought this award winning invention to market.  Like many inventors, Diep's EmeryCat was developed out of necessity, after Diep decided that he was not going to take his brother's cats to the vet's office every two weeks for a pedicure.  I'm sure the cats were overjoyed to learn that.  You know how much cats love to be crated when crating means only one thing to them: the VET! 

EmeryCat is now selling online, in some Wal-Mart stores, and pet shops.  But soon, you will be seeing, "EmeryCat - The Infomercial" on your late night cable TV stations!  Congratulations Mr. Diep!
