Cats are climbers by nature; height allows them to both avoid or escape larger predators, and give them a better and bigger view of the happenings in their area. Climbing is also good exercise and helps keep their claws in good shape. Cat claws grow continuously, both in length and layers from the center out. It is not unusual to find what looks like a toenail near an area that a cat scratches. It is the shed outer layer of the claw and part of the reason cats are so industrious about scratching.
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.
