To ensure your pet will actually use the scratcher, many contain scents that cats like which are released when scratched. You can also put a little catnip or catnip scent on the scratcher which will encourage your cat to scratch it rather than your furniture. With this, your kitty will be able to scratch happily to her heart's content and you won't have to worry about your new couch!
Cats love to scratch. This is a well-known fact amongst cat owners and can be a source of headache for people who are tired of having their living room furniture destroyed. But why do cats scratch and what can be done about it? Scratching is a natural and instinctive behavior for cats and it serves several purposes. First, it helps to keep the claws in good condition as it helps to remove the dead, outer layer of the claw - think of it like exfoliation for cats. Also, by digging its claws into something, this enables a cat to fully stretch it muscles (which is, apparently, very important after a long, hard day of lying around doing nothing!).
