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.
For many proud cat owners, having a cat is wonderful. Being a cat owner is growing in popularity because it is often hard for someone to own a dog in an apartment. Most landlords are dead set against allowing a dog into their house for the fear of damage to the property. However, cats enjoy scratching and digging their claws into things. It is important, especially if you do not own your home, that you teach your cat to scratch in an you to appropriate area. The best way for keep your furniture in good condition and free of claw marks from your cat is to provide a scratch post. This will give your furry friend a way to safely mark his or her territory and stretch, without damaging your belongings. Don't be misled into thinking a scratching post needs to be costly.
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.
