Choosing a cat scratching post

Cats need to scratch regularly. This is to rid their claws of the dead outer layers and to mark their territory. Scratching also helps cats to stretch their muscles and can relax them after a period of stress such as a confrontation with another cat. It is normal behaviour, but it can be frustrating if your feline friend’s attention turns to your sofa. Cats need to scratch but they don’t need to scratch your furniture!

The Perfect Scratching Post

You can easily train your cat to use a scratching post instead of more valuable items in the house. For your efforts to be successful you must choose a good quality post which is sturdy, and which does not wobble. Cats want a stable surface to pull at. The post should be high enough to enable your cat to fully stretch and should feature the right texture. Sisal rope is excellent in this regard as it is durable, yet cats can really sink their claws into it.

Cats vary in their tastes just like people and so you may have to experiment in order to hit on the perfect post for your kitty. Some cats will be attracted to models featuring toys or beds, whilst others will favour hideouts to lie in or platforms to sit on. At Time for Paws we have a fabulous range of cat scratching posts which includes models offering each of these features. We also have fine scratching posts which include hammocks. What luxury! There is sure to be a scratching post to please your puss.

Location

To maximise the appeal of your scratching post you should choose its location carefully. It is best positioned in the area of the home where your cat spends most of its time. If your cat tends to scratch a furnishing, then place the scratching post adjacent to this. Do not locate your scratching post close to your cat’s food bowl or litter tray.

Encourage Your Cat

Reward your cat for using the scratching post. You can do this my praising him and by giving him a tasty treat. Warn him sternly when he scratches inappropriate items. He will soon get the message. It shouldn’t be long before your cat learns to love their scratching post and your furniture will be saved. Both you and your pet will be happier, especially you, when you see the amazing prices at Time for Paws!
