Cat Scratchers are ingenious inventions. One thing that pretty much every cat owner will know is that cats love to scratch. In fact, they love to scratch and claw pretty much anything that is costly and valuable to you, such as your carpets, your doors, and your expensive furniture. However, scratching is a natural instinct for cats as it is the thing that keeps their claws finely tuned and in good shape, just like if they were in the wild.
Of course, whilst we appreciate that cats need to scratch because it is instinct to them we also want to avoid the damage that this can cause to the brand new leather suite we have taking pride of place in the living room. This does not necessarily mean whipping your cat to the vet to get its claws clipped! Instead, you can consider specially designed cat scratchers that are perfect for your cat and will save you a fortune in furniture repairs.
You can get these scratchers in a range of styles and sizes, and they provide the perfect solution for allowing your cat to scratch without your home and furniture being ruined. You can also get these scratchers at really low prices, so you won’t have to fork out a fortune to provide your pet with a more suitable means of keeping their claws in good shape.
Cat scratching posts can come in a variety of colors and sizes, with some even having accessories attached for further entertainment, like tunnels or perches.
You can look at a couple of options when it comes to buying a cat scratcher. You can buy these scratchers as individual items, and this will enable you to benefit from a low cost, compact solution for your cat’s scratching needs. This is a great option for those that want to keep costs down.
However, you will also find that these scratching posts can be incorporated into cat activity centres and jungles. If you are planning to buy an activity centre for your cat then you may find that there is no need to buy an individual scratcher, as the posts that form part of the activity centre are often sisal scratching posts that are already built in for increased convenience.
There are a few things you can do to encourage your cat to use his scratching post:
