Cat Scratching Posts
If you do not like seeing your cat scratching your most valuable furniture piece, then you will have to provide her with something that is very appealing. And when I say appealing, I am not telling you to give her a mouse toy. It means you must provide her an object that satisfies her urge to scratch. What is it I am referring to? It is actually a cat scratching post.
When buying a cat scratching post, there are three important things you must take into account. These are the texture, the dimensions, and the location. Allow me to discuss all these three below.
These days, you can see plenty of cat scratching posts in Brisbane that are covered in carpet. Although they are lovely to look at because they are soft, they are actually not suitable for scratching.
Ideally, a scratching post must have a rough texture to allow cats to dig their nails into the surface, removing the outer layer of their nails. Hence, if you opt for a post that is wrapped in carpet, there are possibilities that their nails will get stuck in the fabric. Eventually, your cat will end up scratching your furniture again.
Here’s a hint. When it comes to texture, opt for something rough and soft. Yes, you are right. I am telling you that sisal is the perfect choice. Not only is it rough. It is also very durable.
But then again, even if sisal is the most preferred type of covering, take note that there are cats that have other preferences. There are felines that love to scratch on wood. So if you have time to spare, might as well bring in several logs at first to find out what your cat really wants.
Another popular option is the corrugated cardboard. If you notice your cats scratching horizontally, then a corrugated cardboard makes a great scratching material.
Now that you have decided on which material is best for the post, you can proceed with the dimensions or the height requirement of the post. Keep in mind that if you get something that is too tall that it ends up being unstable, your cat will go back scratching your sofa. And you do not want that to happen.
A great cat scratching post must be able to support the full weight of your cat. However, if you have a kitten, it is recommended that you get a shorter post. In the long run, as your cat matures, you can give her something where she can have a full stretch.
The key here is if you choose a taller scratching post, you must find something that has a wider base. That way, you can ensure stability all throughout.
Just like a litter box, a cat scratching post is among the most useful things in the life of a cat parent. While not all of them are very attractive, their importance in the life of a cat is something you can never deny.
If this is the first time your cat is using a cat scratching post, then the best place to put it is right next to the object she loves to scratch. With that, it will be very easy for her to realize that there is a better option for scratching.
If you are in Brisbane, you will see lots of stores selling pet supplies like cat scratching posts. They may all look the same physically, but the quality says it all. Hence, I suggest you only buy from trusted stores like Coops and Cages.
