David Leese shares this photo of "The Ultimate Cat Toy:"

He writes, "The inspiration for the sculpture first came from a visit to a mall pet store. I was so disappointed with the lack of variety in the larger scale cat toys, I decided what we really needed was an "Ultimate Cat Toy". I wanted to design something that would be the equivalent of upgrading from a Ford to a Lincoln.

"The sculpture is made from a variety of hard and softwoods including birch, redwood, maple and fir. My approach to the design was to study some of the play habits of my own cat and look for new ways to incorporate them into the design. Things like playing in between the balusters of our Victorian's staircase, climbing ladders and steps, and their natural curiosity for hidden spaces were incorporated into the final design.

"Just as important, though, was trying to illustrate our tendency, as owners, to get carried away when it comes to our pets. Our passion for our companions and the natural tendency to overindulge them just naturally lead to a work of art like "The Ultimate Cat Toy". The sculpture, which stands 6 feet tall, has been released in a very limited edition of 10 pieces. Each piece features different woods and finishes that emphasize their individuality.
