Cat trees also have shelves or hidey-holes from which your kitties can watch the world. If you have a clowder [or 'herd'], they will each usually pick their favorite spot on the tree, with the more dominant ones mostly at the top. Cat climbing trees also allow the daily 'crazies' to go vertical as well, with the added benefit (at least in my experience) that they burn off more energy and the crazies don't last as long.
Cats also use scratching to communicate and as a way to mark territory. Unfortunately for cat owners, carpets, chairs and couches are perfect for scratching - so how can people have cats in the house yet still protect their furniture? Declawing will prevent a kitty from scratching furniture, but this is an extremely cruel practice. Some people mistakenly believe that claws serve no more purpose than a person's fingernails. In reality, because a cat's claws are an integral part of their paw, removing them is similar to cutting off a person's fingers at the first knuckle!
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.
The best solution to this is to purchase a cat scratcher. A cat scratcher is specifically built so that a cat will scratch the scratcher instead of your furniture. Cat scratchers come in many different configurations - some are stand-alone posts while others hang from a ceiling or door frame. You can even purchase a cat tower with a cat scratcher built in. The scratching surface should be made from tightly wound Sisal rope which is good for your cat's claws.
