Cat Seeing a scratching cat is completely natural to us. Just as natural as scratching is for a cat. It is not enough to say that it is natural - it is instinctive, absolutely needed! This is what cats have in their DNA.
Our small predators have to mark their territory - when they scratch, they leave a scent from the glands they have under their paws and a visual mark in the form of scratches on a specific object. Our pet feels safe and knows that the house where it lives is its territory.
When scratching, the cat also stretches its muscles and sheds the old claw cuticle. Scratching, unfortunately, can be destructive to our interior design. Therefore, the sooner we direct our pet's needs to the right cat scratching pole, the longer our furniture will live.
