Cat Scratching Posts

Our cat scratching posts come in all sizes so that you can find the one that is right for your house and for your special cats. Give your cat its own place to exercise that scratching nature while saving your furniture.

Any cat person knows that owning a cat means dealing with scratching.  Cats scratch for many different reasons…removing dead skin from their claws, to mark their territory by leaving both a visual mark and a scent, as they have scent glands on their paws, and to stretch their bodies and flex their feet and claws.  And, of course, they scratch to sharpen their claws.  The problem is…all this scratching can happen on furniture, drapes and carpeting, creating quite a lot of stress for cat owners.

A scratching post is essential for any healthy cat as they must have an outlet for their urge to scratch.  Providing a post for that purpose can save your furniture, draperies and carpeting from destruction and the earlier you start training your cat to use a scratching post, the better off you’ll both be.

Providing cats with multiple scratching posts in different areas of your home increases the likelihood that they will use them so you might want to consider shopping our catanddogsuppliesplus.com site for more than one scratching post.  You can also help your cat learn that her new scratching post is awesome by playing with her around and on it.  Wand type toys are great for this.  You can encourage your cat to reach up and place her paws on the scratching post as she’s reaching and jumping for the toy.  You can also try placing your cat’s favorite toy on top of the post or maybe even a bit of cat nip..something most any cat loves.

Just remember…cats have a mind of their own so what works for one cat won’t always work for another.  One thing is for sure, however…a cat scratching post can be a favorite for all cats and owners.
