VICTORIA, British Columbia, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- A Canadian company is seeking crowdfunding to develop a line of scratching posts designed to resemble various political figures.

Kickstarter campaign "Politikats" offers designer scratching posts resembling Donald Trump and Barack Obama.

"Politikats is here to help save your belongings, make your home look stylish but most importantly turn you from crazy cat person to political junkie with a taste for the finer things in life," the Kickstarter page read.

Each scratching post is composed of sisal rope and stands about 26 inches tall. It also includes a 15 x 15 base available in three colors: red, blue and gray.

The campaign is seeking $36,318 to produce the Obama and Trump models and has promised posts designed after Vladimir Putin, Benjamin Netanyahu, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. They have also promised a life-sized Sepp Blatter post if the campaign reaches $300,000.

If funded, the scratching posts are expected to ship worldwide in August 2016.
