Are you tired of worrying about your furniture? Your favorite chair became the latest victim of your playful cat? Then it’s time to get a cat scratcher!
You cat will love his personal claw sharping toy and it’s guaranteed that the cat scratcher will be his new favorite place to work out his wildcat instincts. The act of scratching removes worn outer claws, exposing new, sharper ones. However, what is normal cat behavior sometimes can become frustrating to deal with for pet owners — particularly when your lovely kitty starts destroying furniture.
Why do cats scratch?
Scratching is a perfectly normal behavior and it serves multiple purposes. You might think that your cat’s daily scratching routine is merely an attempt to sharpen his claws perfectly or to destroy that evil chair, but the truth is that in the wilderness felines leave territorial markings for other cats to warn them that this hunting territory is already in use.
However the markings on your favorite couch is more likely just signs of a playful behavior of your kitty. Scratching is an excellent stress-reliever for cats and they love to do it when they are happy, excited or frustrated. Since this behavior is a really important part of your cat’s life, you will need a place where he can safely sharpen his claws without making a piece of trash of your antique coffee table. I recommend you to choose a product which is a bed and a scratcher in one, so your cat will have a comfortable place to rest and play.
