In the wild, cats scratcher tree trunks and release scent to mark their territory. Another reason is stretching the bodies and bending the claws. This instinctive behavior is also carried out in our homes. When a cat scratches a tree, it prevents your cat from exercising its claws on your furniture.

The textured surface of the sisal-wrapped post is perfect for a good scratching post, while the platforms make great perches from which to watch the activities of the house. Cats love dens to hide in, and you may even catch them curled up for a nap. If you have more than one cat at home, this is a great way to keep them entertained. You can watch them chase each other for hours.

If you only have one cat and there isn't enough room for a whole tree, you should consider a single cat scratching post or a cat scratcher pad. However, simply bringing home a post or scratching pad won't entice them to switch, you have to convince them to choose the scratching post over your furniture. This can be done by sprinkling cat litter on it or by tempting it with toys or treats.

Scratching posts are great for both kittens and adult cats. Kittens will soon form a bond and this helps them to adjust better to your home. The toys hanging on the scratching tree entice them to play with them. Scratchers and trees help expend all the energy they have.

For adult cats, this is a great way to relieve stress and exercise. If you have more than one cat at home, the scratching post acts as a meeting place where they all come together on "common ground".

At Goofy Tails, you'll find a wide selection of cat furniture for your furry friend to enjoy. This furniture is designed to give your cat a place to climb and scratch on something other than your home furnishings.

Cats need to scratch to keep their claws sharp, exercise and stretch their muscles, and mark their territory.

Failure to provide an acceptable surface for scratching can result in damage to carpets, furniture, and wallpaper. Once a cat finds an attractive place to scratch, it will always return to it! Scratching pads come in all shapes and sizes and are an essential addition to your home if you're a cat parent. Make sure the post is sturdy before choosing one for your cat; cats need resistance when scratching to do the best job possible. Also, keep in mind that you are offering opportunities for your cat to scratch both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

There are several ways to get your cat to use whatever scratching post is available. It would be most attractive if you placed it near a window or radiator in a room that your cat particularly prefers, especially if it is one of the larger designs that incorporate platforms and beds into the design. Cats love to stretch and scratch when they first wake up, so it's always beneficial to have an acceptable scratching spot near your cat's bed. Don't force your cat to scratch by grabbing her paws and showing her what to do, or pay close attention to the scratcher when it first arrives, as this may discourage your cat from approaching it! You can try placing a small handful of dry food on the platform to encourage your cat to jump up and explore.
