That’s A Scratching Post!

Cats need to scatch on things in order to remove worn claws. Anyone who has a cat knows their furniture may become a victim of this habit – even if you have a scratching post!

Some love the bottom edge of the sofa. If you have hardwood floors, you may even catch your cat sliding itself from one end of the sofa to the other!

Other cats like to scratch on harder surfaces like wood. I wonder if the cat in the photo above is imagining what this scratching post would look like in the house!

What does your cat like to scratch?
