Scratching is a natural and instinctive behaviour for cats. Unfortunately, this can be a point of contention when their favourite scratch pad turns out to be your expensive sofa. Thankfully, PJ Pet Products offers an extensive range of solutions, from the traditional grey cat scratching post to the state-of-the-art SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post. While investing in a quality cat scratching post is the first step, teaching your feline friend to use it is crucial. So, how do you go about it? Let’s delve in.Lazy Boy Scratching Tree
Before implementing training techniques, it’s important to understand why cats scratch in the first place. Scratching serves several functions for cats:
Cats often like to scratch after they’ve woken from a nap or when they’re feeling playful. Place the scratch post near their favourite resting spots, or where they’ve shown a propensity to scratch inappropriately (like near that beloved armchair of yours).
After you’ve picked a spot, introduce your cat to their new post. A great way to make the scratching post appealing is by rubbing some catnip or spraying a little catnip spray onto the post. You can also use some treats to lure your cat to the post.
Training your cat to use a scratching post is beneficial for both you and your feline friend. From a simple grey cat scratching post to the long-lasting SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post, PJ Pet Products offers a variety to suit every need. With consistent training, positive reinforcement, and a little patience, your furniture will thank you in the long run.Shop Here
