This Chain Chomp is a cat bed ⊟

I can’t imagine the creative vision and technical skills required for this one “Hmm, that video game monster’s maw looks like it might be comfy.”

It’s a great piece by Catastrophic Creations (via miki800/isquirtmilkfrommyeye), my favorite kind of art: the kind it’s okay for your cat to sleep on.


We love this awesome Chain Chomp Cat Bed. Made by Catastrophicreations, Portland, OR-based makers of unconventional cat furniture, this one-of-a-kind cat bed looks exactly like one of the Chain Chomp enemies from the Mario video game series. It  was created to be a work of geektastic art as well as a fully functional piece of furniture:

“For instance, the wooden box has hinges on the inside, so that it doubles as a storage space to keep kitty litter or cat food in The whole piece (other then the wooden box) is made from hardened styrofoam, including the chain. It’s a multiple of layers of Epoxy and another product with a cement texture used over the the Chomp’s body to make it look like metal. It’s body is matte, and the inside of the mouth, teeth and eyes are gloss to give them a wet look.”

Because the Internet loves cats more than almost anything, this toothy cat bed sold as soon as it was first posted online. But these amusing photos remain so that the rest of us may enjoy it vicariously for all time.

Also, Catastrophicreations makes lots of other creative cat furniture, so we recommend visiting their website or Instagram feed to check out more of their cat-friendly creations.
