Cats have a natural instinct to scratch, and they do so for a variety of reasons. Scratching helps them to stretch and exercise their muscles, mark their territory by leaving scent and visual cues, and remove the dead outer layer of their claws to keep them healthy. A cat scratch post or pad is a necessity for all kitty parents.
Scratching also feels good to cats, as it allows them to flex and extend their paws and stretch out their bodies. The texture and material of a scratching post or surface can also provide tactile stimulation and satisfying resistance for their claws.
Additionally, scratching can help cats relieve stress and anxiety. When they scratch, they release pent-up energy and tension, which can help them feel more relaxed and calm.
Overall, having a designated cat scratch post or surface like the Single Scratch Pad with Catnip or Lean-It Everywhere Sisal Scratch Post for your cat can help satisfy their natural scratching instinct and prevent them from scratching furniture or other household items.
