Frequently Asked Questions

Scratching posts fulfil your cat's natural instinct to scratch, promoting healthy nails and stretching muscles. They redirect scratching behaviour away from furniture, provide mental stimulation, and offer stress relief. Overall, scratching posts contribute to your cat's physical and emotional well-being.

While kittens don’t necessarily need a scratching post, having one can be beneficial for their development and well-being. Kittens are active and curious by nature, and providing them with a cat tree can give them an outlet for their energy and a place to climb, explore, and play.

Additionally, a cat tree can help your kitten develop and maintain their natural instincts, such as scratching and climbing. It can also provide them with a cosy and comfortable space to nap, which is important for their overall health and well-being.

That being said, it’s important to choose a cat tree that is appropriate for your kitten’s size and age. Some cat trees may be too tall or have platforms that are too high for a young kitten to safely climb, so it’s important to consider the product carefully before making a purchase.

Choosing a scratching post can be a fun and exciting experience for both you and your cat. Here are some tips on how to choose the right cat tree for your furry friend:

  • Consider your cat’s size: It’s important to choose a scratching post that is appropriate for your cat’s size and weight. A cat tree that is too small may not provide enough space for your cat to play and rest, while a cat tree that is too big can be intimidating and difficult for your cat to climb.
  • Look for a stable base: A cat tree with a wide and stable base will ensure that the structure remains sturdy, even when your cat is playing or climbing.
  • Check the materials: The material used to construct the cat tree is an important factor to consider. Natural sisal rope or fabric coverings provide a great scratching surface for your cat, and are also durable and easy to clean.

You can promote your cat's use of a scratching post by situating it near areas where they typically scratch, enticing them with catnip or treats, and offering praise when they engage with it. Additionally, gently guiding their paws onto the post and rewarding them for scratching can help reinforce the behaviour.

Scratching posts come in various materials tailored to your cat's preferences:

  • Sisal Rope: Known for durability and natural texture, great for satisfying scratching instincts.
  • Carpet: Many scratching posts feature carpeted surfaces, offering a softer texture compared to sisal.
  • Cardboard: Scratching pads or posts made from corrugated cardboard are a popular and economical option.
  • Wood: Adds stability and blends well with home decor.
  • Plastic/Fabric: Durable and offers varied textures for scratching pleasure.

Consider your cat's habits and your home décor when choosing the best material for your scratching post.

Scratching posts should be replaced when they show signs of wear and tear, instability, or when your cat no longer shows interest in using them. Watch out for fraying sisal rope, flattened carpet, or wobbling structures, as these indicate that the post is no longer providing a satisfactory scratching experience. Additionally, if your cat consistently ignores the scratching post in favour of other surfaces, it may be time to try a different type or location for the post.

The number of scratching posts a cat needs can vary depending on factors such as the cat's age, activity level, and preferences, as well as the layout of your home. As a general guideline, it's recommended to have at least one scratching post per cat in your household. Additionally, consider placing scratching posts in multiple areas of your home where your cat spends time, such as near their favourite resting spots or along common pathways. This ensures easy access to scratching opportunities and helps prevent territorial disputes among multiple cats.

Each cat has their own scratching style and preferences. Some enjoy the vertical surface of scratching posts for a good stretch and scratch, while others prefer the horizontal layout of scratching boards. Factors like texture, stability, and where it's placed influence their choice. By having both posts and boards at home, you offer variety to suit your cat's individual scratching preferences. Paying attention to their behaviour and providing different options helps you understand what they like best.
