Why Cats Scratch

March 20th, 2009 · No Comments · Cat Scratching Post

Scratching is a natural behavior for cats. – This isn’t exactly a revelation, since you probably have the evidence everywhere–in the tattered corners of your sofa, the shredded drapes, your frayed nerves. Though Kitty’s natural propensity for scratching may not be big news, it is a fact that you’ll need to take into account if you’re to make any headway in winning the battle to keep her from scratching in places you consider undesirable.

Provide your cat with an appropriate scratching post. – Since your cat brings you so much joy, you decide to buy her the softest, prettiest and most luxurious scratching post you can find. .

And this is why they mark the most visible portions of your house. It’s Kitty’s way of adding her own personal touch to your (and her) home. Her version of interior decorating.

Exercise – Scratching also serves to keep your cat in shape. The act of scratching stretches and pulls and works the muscles of a cat’s front quarters–a cross between a feline gym workout and Kitty Yoga.

Sheer pleasure – Hey! It feels good to scratch.

So give up the idea of reforming Kitty’s desire to scratch. Rechannel her into scratching where you want her to. You’ll both be happier.
