Features and Benefits:
- Fibrous and durable sisal material naturally inspires scratching.
- Perfect for conditioning nails (superior to carpeting which snags nails and encourages scratching on other carpeted surfaces).
- Sturdy base eliminates wobbling and tipping which could discourage the cat from future attempts to use the post.
- The 32" post height allows the cat to stretch vertically while using the post (important for territorial marking purposes and for toning muscles).
- The finest materials and workmanship guarantee a scratching post that will remain attractive and useful.
Why do cats scratch?
- To remove old nail sheaths from the claws
- To exercise and tone muscles
- To relieve stress, frustration and boredom
- To "warm up" for a vigorous play session
- To mark territory
SmartCat䋢 Training Tips:
- Place the post in a room where the cat spends a lot of time. Cats often like to stretch and scratch when they wake up from a nap.
- To introduce the post to your cat try using catnip as a lure. (For most cats a lure is unnecessary, but fun.) Rub catnip onto the sisal material and call the cat over to the post.
- Scratch your nails along the surface of the material. This will attract the cat and at the same time teach him where to scratch.
- After your cat begins to scratch, praise him and give him a food treat. (Small kittens can be trained to climb the post by showing them food treats and placing it at the top of the post.
- If your cat has already been scratching a piece of furniture, place the post directly in front of it.
- Temporarily cover the previously scratched areas with a few strips of double-sided carpet tape or clear double-sided tape strips that are designed for this purpose. This will help redirect your cat's scratching activities to the post.
