Why your cat scratches on furniture

Your cat spends a fair amount of time scratching on your furniture. Why does she do this?

Your pet makes a point to scratch regularly because it offers her an opportunity to strengthen her claws as well as leave behind markings on her territory. The act of scratching files down her ever-growing claws, removes the parts that have seen better days, and allows her to practice using her claws so she will be ready to do so the next time she needs them. It also allows her to show others what areas she considers to be within her personal space by leaving behind a visual reminder for others to find another place to hang out. Plus, scratching can often give your pet a good stretch. Your local Lakeville, MN vet clinic can help you care for your pet. Schedule an appointment today.
