How to Choose a Scratching Post for Your Cat

simple cat scratching post

Give your cat something to scratch other than the sides of your leather couch.  Buy them a great scratching post!  The question ‘why do cats scratch things’ never has to be answered right away, it just has to be an action that a cat owner should know how to handle.  Curtains are torn, there are scrapes on your stainless steel refrigerator, and the paint on your walls is peeling off.  This is a result of your precious little kitty who just can’t keep their paws to themselves.  Even though it might look like they scratch everything just because you told them not to, that isn’t the case.   Cats, like dogs, have to mark their territory.  There are actually scent glands at the bottom of their feet which releases a specific scent once they scratch something.  Your cat also wants to stay clean and I am sure that you would like them to keep clean as well.  When cats scratch, they are cleaning out all of the dead materials that are stuck in their claws.  Your cat scratching will actually keep your house clean.  Even the simplest scratching post can do the trick and keep your cat away from the furniture.
