Scratching Solutions

Cats need to scratch! It’s their natural instinct. Scratching allows cats to mark their territory, leaving their scent and a visual mark. There are lots of different scratching materials to choose from — carpet, sisal, cardboard, wood, etc. You’ll need to figure out which material your cat prefers. Also, some cats like to scratch horizontally, while others prefer a vertical scratching surface. Check out these examples of creative scratching solutions and be sure to send us photos of your own solutions!
