What Are Cat Scratch Posts?
11 FAQs Best Cat Scratch Posts
What is the purpose of a scratch post? Cat owners find that cats are prone to scratch anything that can be scratched around the home, including furnishings due to their instincts. It helps them remove old material from their claws and importantly, they mark their territory.
How do scratch posts help? Scratching helps tone shoulders and back muscles as well as their paws. The cat stretches standing on its back legs whilst scratching. This is important for indoor cats that may not get as much exercise as outdoor cats.
Who invented the scratch post? This has been extremely hard to find out, no one to date is owning up!
What sizes do they come in? Scratching posts come in many shapes and sizes, even to human height. The most important point when buying one for the first time is to check the designated area in your home where you can situate this and work out what size will fit the best. If you have more than one cat, consider getting a larger size to accommodate.
What are they made out? The first scratching post was a rope covered post set on a base. Today, features can include a multitude of different gauge twisted yarns and add-ons such as height tiers, fixed toys and swing balls.
What styles are they made in? In recent years there’s been a great surge in the design of great looking stylish posts that can fit into period, contemporary, art deco and modern homes. They come in a wide range of colours and styles and importantly height.
Why are there very tall scratch posts? According to cat behaviour experts, this dates back to their origins as hunters where sitting up elevated they could see what was below and protect themselves from a high vantage point.
How long will a scratch post last? There are several considerations. Some cats scratch more than others, large cats need taller posts and therefore these being larger having more fabric may last longer. Outside cats are likely to take the opportunity to scratch outdoors, anywhere they like, and on different surfaces. It’s also important to consider the quality of the scratch post, the thickness of the rope, sisal and twine used as these are major factors to length of life.
How many cats may be using it? Cats can share scratch posts if they get along together. Cats that don’t get along with each other tend to scratch more. It’s useful to have two posts in these circumstances, perhaps located in different rooms.
How many other scratching items you have around the home? It’s a good idea to minimise the amount of scratching materials you have around the home so that your cat can focus on their scratch post. Don’t lock a cat in a room with valuable furnishings and expect them not to scratch them
How short do you keep your cats nails? The longer the more likely they scratch. Cats normally see to their own nails and keep them in order, biting them back. They scratch with their front claws to remove old debris and keep these shorter.
