Cats also use scratching to communicate and as a way to mark territory. Unfortunately for cat owners, carpets, chairs and couches are perfect for scratching - so how can people have cats in the house yet still protect their furniture? Declawing will prevent a kitty from scratching furniture, but this is an extremely cruel practice. Some people mistakenly believe that claws serve no more purpose than a person's fingernails. In reality, because a cat's claws are an integral part of their paw, removing them is similar to cutting off a person's fingers at the first knuckle!
Cut your plywood base to the desired dimension. We’re using an 18-inch square carpet tile for this scratcher. Use the sand paper to smooth any rough edges. DIY scratch base saw. Using your straight edge and pencil, draw a line from corner to corner on the plywood. Repeat from the opposite corners. They will intersect in the center. Next, mark two screw locations based on the diameter of your log. Since ours was 5 inches thick, we marked our holes 3 inches apart to leave some room between the screw and the outer edge of the log.
