Every household with a feline friend will be familiar with furniture being destroyed. This classic problem is familiar to all of us cat lovers! Whether it would be a ruined couch, ripped blankets, or even curtains that have turned into strands of thread… Because of their sharp and fierce claws that are ready to destroy everything! Most of these issues will disappear if your cat has a scratching tree, because they’ll get to unleash all of their natural predatory instincts to the fullest!
Scratching or scraping behaviour is what cats do to mark their territory, with the added benefits of sharpening their claws and stretching their whole body. It’s their natural instinct, with the main function of claiming their area. Every time they scratch, their scent is left on the surface! If you let them scratch the furniture continuously with no cat tree for your furry friend, be prepared for your things to be shredded to pieces!
This is when cat-scratching toys come in handy! Instead of having your furniture or belongings destroyed by your beloved pet, your cat will turn to these toys to unleash their natural instincts instead, so your home will be nice and tidy.
Cat scratchers come in all shapes and sizes. Whether that would be a flat surface you simply place on the floor or a vertical pole you can place in the corner of your living room, it can also just be a part of the giant cat condo you’ve gotten your kitty! There are also various mentally stimulating toys you can pick and choose for your little one. Here are some tips on how to pick the best scratching accessories for your pet.
