A scratched sofa, wall or chair back. Pulled curtains and sweaters.
If you live with a pussycat, it is very possible that you know these situations.
How to deal with this? A lot of people sacrifice one piece of furniture. The cat can do what it wants with it, which will then leave other furniture alone. But this one piece of furniture is also a sacrifice, right? After all, it wasn’t its purpose.
Others will use spray to scare the kitty away from the furniture.
But is this a good solution? In our opinion, no. Claw abrasion is a natural need for every cat. In this way, it marks its area and rubs off the used surface layer of claws.
And forbidding them to meet their natural needs may not be a good solution, right?
We know that every cat-person wants the best for their pet!
Ok so now we have determined that a cat is a cat, and it will scratch.
However, take it easy! This does not mean that your furniture has just been given a death sentence. There are ways to do it.
Instead of prohibiting a cat from scratching specific furniture, it's easier to make space for it! I am talking about a cat scratcher, of course.
But how do you choose the best one?
Cats are animals with great imaginations when it comes to sleeping positions, but also scratching! There are those who prefer horizontal space, others vertical or even sloping.
Therefore, the cat tree should not be flat. All curves are very much appreciated by kitties. Thanks to them, in addition to the cat scratcher, the little purrer also gains a comfortable place to hang out.
And another thing - cats love cardboard boxes. I don't think anyone can argue with that, right?
Therefore, a scraper made of corrugated cardboard would be an ideal option.
If you want to make your kitty the perfect cat scratcher, just remember these two tips.
