Save your Inside Furniture: Treat your Furry Friend to a Cat Scratching Post and See the Benefits

I love cats!  I am a cat person and always have been.  Of course when choosing a husband, this was a question I wanted to be answered as soon as I started dating.  On my first date with my husband, I asked him if he liked cats and he convincingly assured me that he too was a cat lover.  I later discovered he was a dog person and not a cat person.

Fast forward to after we were married and purchasing our first lounge suite as a couple.  We searched for the best sofa for our living room and fell in love with a chocolate brown leather lounge suite that cost more than my car at the time, which was only a couple of years old!  We ordered it and had to wait three months for the leather sofa to arrive from Italy – it was made to order.

Once it had arrived, my husband smugly announced that there was no way we could get a cat now, because our living room furniture was far too expensive to be damaged by the claws of a cat.

Now it’s my turn to be smug.  I have been doing some reading and discovered the reason people love cat scratchers is because the cat scratching trees can help the cat stop feeling the need to shred home furniture and furnishings. 

Caticure (Cat Manicure)

Buy cat tree poles to help the cat mimic the actions in nature where he/she sheds loose layers from his/her claws.  Domestic cats don’t usually roam free outside, so they miss out on climbing trees, fences and anything that they can explore, sniff and scratch on. Cat towers offer a solution to this problem for your inside cat.  Carpeted cat scratching tree poles will allow exploration as well as the scratching action that is essential for the health of your cat’s claws.  Cat manicure anyone?

Pawlates (Feline Pilates)

Inside Outside’s range of cat poles vary in size.  A large cat tower will benefit your cat as it will be able to stretch its paws and limbs which will mean your cat will be able to stay limber while leaping over, under and around the cat scratching post.  Playtime can continue after a long sleep with ease if your cat uses the provided cat furniture for Pawlates.

Feline Fitness

Climbing, jumping, chasing, stretching, repetitive grabbing.  Your cat uses the cat scratcher as part of her circuit training to be ever fit. 

Un-meow (De-Stress, Unwind)

Exercise helps humans de-stress, playing unwinds cat tension.  Digging claws into a carpeted scratching pole feels great for the cat – which is why they do it again and again.  Allow puss to unwind on dedicated cat furniture will save your living room furniture or your bed frame from suffering a sad fate.
