  • What does it tend to scratch on?
  • Does your cat favour a particular position – hind legs or on the back?

  • Does your cat tend to scratch many different things or the same things?
  • How many cats do you have and do they each have individual needs?

Cat owners would ideally have several different posts within the house in different locations. Consider a scratching post:


  • Stability – choose a stable and sturdy location that does not topple over and can take the full weight of your cat.
  •  Size – Choosing the most ideal size is determined by the size of your cat and provide enough space to stretch out .
