Scratching posts and cardboard (corrugated) scratching boards and pads are a necessity for any cat owner! Cats really need to scratch things, and if they don’t have something intended for that purpose, then they’ll scratch away and damage your furniture. To prevent that, provide your pet with at least one scratching post. (In our apartment we have two – one scratching post and one scratching cardboard pad, located in different areas. We find that having a couple works really well.)
Here are some of our favourites:
