So What Should You Buy? The decision as to what type of furniture to buy for Tabby and Fritz should be determined by a combination of factors: - Do you want a freestanding or floor-to-ceiling model? This is really more of a personal choice issue than anything else. If you have very active or very large cats, a floor to ceiling model will probably offer more stability. If you have a multi-cat household, special attention should be paid to the weight rating of the furniture. It's also usually possible to secure a free-standing model to a wall with common brackets and hardware available at any home center, in cases where rambunctious kitties cause it to rock or tip.
Why Do Cats Scratch? In order to be completely informed when buying cat furniture, it's helpful to understand why it is that cats scratch in the first place. The primary reason for cats scratching furniture, carpets, woodwork, or other objects is to mark their territory for other cats (this is instinctual, so they will do this even if they are the only cat in the house). Additionally, the scratching helps remove the dead cells from the claw sheaths, and stretches their muscles and ligaments.
If you would like to go a step further, you can buy your cat his own cat house or cat condo. Some of these have two to three "stories" and are even equipped with cat beds. Apart from cat trees, there are also scratching posts that are available in the market. These posts also protect your home furniture from your cat's claws.
For proper physical and emotional challenge, we would also recommend an assortment of toys to help your cat stay fit and active. And, please remember that indoor cats need playtime with their owners every day, which stimulates them socially and helps thwart boredom and troubling behaviors. Cat Furniture - an Easy Solution Simply stated, cat furniture addresses the instinctual needs of cats.
