Next, you are gong to need to entice your cat to use the scratching post. To do this, you can rub catnip all over it. The scent will spark your fur balls curiosity. Soon after he or she shows interest, the scratching should begin. If your cat is not fond of catnip, you can put some other treats on top of the post and get the same outcome. For the first week or so, every time you notice your cat is using the post, be sure to positively reinforce the behavior. Give him or her a treat, and verbally praise him or her. A quick stroke is also a great way for you to show your cat that the behavior is acceptable to you.
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.
Features to consider - Cat trees can be as tall as eight feet so you'll want to measure you ceiling before buying or ordering. Some have tops that extend to a custom size and secure to your ceiling for stability. If this is the kind you prefer, look for one that attaches to ceiling with pressure. It will be much easier to install and will not require hardware or fasteners that damage the ceiling.
How to Make It: You’ll want the scratcher to be at least as long as your cat from the tip of his or her nose to the tip of the tail. This way, it will be tall enough for her to get a good stretch. We measured ours at 34 inches to leave a little extra. DIY scratch sawing - To make sure the log stands straight and firm on the base, use your saw to make a nice straight at both ends of the log.
