Your local pet supply store will have a variety of scratching posts from which to choose. Most are made from wood covered with carpeting. Some are made of sisal string, cardboard, or natural wood. When choosing one, make sure that it has a sturdy, side base so that your cat cannot knock it over when scratching. The post should be tall enough so that he can stand on his back feet, anchor in his front feet and claw away. Place the post near the area in which your cat normally sleeps. They like to stretch and scratch after they wake up from a nap. If you have a large home, you may want to buy a few scratching posts and place them all over the house so that your feline companion always has one nearby.
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!
