Cats need a scratching post for the following reasons: To stretch their legs and upper body, remove outer sheath on claws to keep them in tip-top shape, and as an emotional outlet when they’re really excited or stressed and anxious

Choose ones covered in a rough and tough texture such as sisal and never select one completely covered in carpet since cats can get their claws stuck in the fabric loops

Place the scratching post in a prominent area so that your cat will get the most use out of it and will be less tempted to use your furniture!
