Cat Scratching. You can’t stop a cat from scratching but you can keep her out of trouble by providing scratching posts. Many are available, some less expensive than others. But no matter the cost, it could save you from damaged furniture, frayed draperies and your frayed nerves.
Scratching is a normal part of all cat’s behavior. They sharpen their claws to keep them ready for climbing, catching prey and, I’m sure, other reasons cat behaviorist haven’t even thought of.
An outside cat has trees, as a favorite scratching post, but inside cats have to find a substitute, most likely your sofa or favorite chair. A good method to lure your cat from your furniture or drapes is to place a scratching post in front of the area they have chosen. They will be drawn to the post & use it instead. You can gradually move the post, eventually placing it in a spot they can easily find and one you approve. This can save hundreds or thousands of dollars in repair or replacement costs and unnecessary wear & tear on your nerves. This also helps you have a happy, healthy indoor cat, without the inhumane act of de-clawing.
Scratching posts are available as a stand-alone-post, a post with a perch on top, some with dangling toys, and cat condos that include all of these choices along with small rooms, hammocks and ladders, all for the pure enjoyment of your beloved cat. Never take for granted the comfort and well being of your precious pet. Your good care will be rewarded with years of unequaled love.
