Most cat furniture is assembled with posts made of carpet or sisal. These posts are no accident in design. They provide structural integrity while inviting instinctual scratching, which trims claws and leaves behind cat scent to establish territory. The need to establish territory is especially important in multiple-cat homes, and may even help prevent urine marking as a method of establishing territory. Encourage Challenges Though indoor cats live longer, healthier lives than outdoor cats, they face a health risk rare to most outdoor cats - a sedentary lifestyle.
Many cat owners see their cat furniture as an extra - nice to have, but not really essential. Consider for a moment your cat's instinctual behavior, and then take a look around your home. Does she have a place to climb and explore different heights? Does she have a safe place to scratch and establish territory? Does she have opportunities to hunt? If your furnishings and furniture are not acceptable places for her to display these behaviors, then cat furniture is an acceptable alternative - and a necessity to your cat's well-being.
