Choosing something for your cat to scratch on
You have a wonderful cat in your life and you want to make sure you are able to offer her everything she requires to meet her needs. This will sometimes mean taking the time to find something suitable for her to scratch on.
Your pet needs you to understand that there are a few different reasons why she scratches, so the item you choose for her to use has to satisfy a few different needs. Your pet must be able to file down her claws on this, get a good stretch in, and mark her territory while utilizing it. There are a lot of different options out there, so consider whether your pet would like a vertical or horizontal surface, the type of material she would find the most useful, and where you plan on placing it within your home.
