A good scratching post must be stable so that so that it won't topple over, and it should be a few inches taller than the cat. The cat should be able stand and stretch upright against the scratch post, which should be covered with rough material that has a vertical texture. Placing the post in a corner of the room where the cat likes, and sprinkling some catnip on will be even more attractive to the cat. Cats go crazy when they smell catnip. Another and even better location would be to place the scratching post where the cat originally started scratching your carpet or furnishing.
In nature, cats scratch on trees to stretch their bodies and maintain their claws. If left without a similar outlet in your home, you may have noticed your cat replicating this behavior on your furniture or drapes. As we get ready for Maker Faire in New York City, September 21-22, 2013, we’ve noticed there are an increasing number of ideas online for things like scratching surfaces you can make for cat. You can find all sorts of scratchers on the market made from corrugated cardboard or wrapped in sisal. But scratch posts can be fun to make and can be customized to match your décor.
