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!).
Choosing a cat for your pet is something special. The addition of a new family member is something to look forward to, and just as the cat should enjoy being in your home, it's equally important that you are able to relax and enjoy your experiences. Cats are usually considered easy to take care of, but they still demand your time and energy. In addition to requiring daily care your cat has to learn what it may and may not do in your home. Now that your furry friend is home, you naturally do not want it to scratch your carpet, furniture, and wall paper so to avoid damage you will need to buy a scratch post.
