Cats also scratch to leave their scent via their paw pads. One problem with most traditional scratching posts is they are not tall enough for the cat to really stretch up while scratching; and even if they are tall enough, the cat would likely pull it over on itself if it tried. Anyone who owns cats knows how much they like to stretch their muscles. Cat climbing trees not only address these issues, but also typically combine textures, such as carpet, sisal, burlap and sometimes unfinished wood. This allows the cat to choose what type of surface it wants to work on.
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.
Scratching - All cat tree houses come with scratching posts that double as the columns that hold the various platforms. Some have curvy slide-like scratching surfaces or scratching ramps. Most scratching surfaces are covered in sisal, however, some are covered in carpet. Whatever the size or shape of the scratching surfaces, cats love them and you'll love that your furniture is not the recipient of said scratching.
If you are a cat lover with a big heart, you may want to adopt every homeless cat in the animal shelter, but be realistic. You cannot take in every stray that comes along. So how many cats are too many? It depends on the size of your home and your budget. Each cat you adopt will need plenty of space in your house, his own litter box, food dishes, and annual veterinary care. Owning 3 cats is realistic, but owning 10 or 15 could quickly become unmanageable. Some cat owners like to start out with a pair of kittens. They can play together and grow up together, while others are content with one cat who becomes a devoted companion. However many cats you adopt, make sure that each one is given lots of love and the best care possible.
