Should you get a scratching post or mat for your cat?

You share your home with a cat and you want to make sure you are offering her everything she needs to lead a happy and healthy lifestyle. This means taking the time to seek out the ideal pet supply items to meet her needs. This makes you wonder – should you offer her a scratching post or a scratching mat?

Cats need to scratch to maintain their claws so there are a ton of products on the market to meet this need. The biggest difference between a scratching post and a scratching mat are the direction in which your pet would be scratching. Think about the surfaces she gravitates toward, and you may see that she has a preference in this way. You also want to make sure the item you choose will be appealing to her, so make sure it is an ideal texture for her. For more information, please contact your local Anderson, IN vet clinic.
