Cat Scratching Posts

Cat scratching posts are an important aspect of caring for your cats and scratching is a purr-fectly normal cat behaviour.

In the absence of special dedicated cat scratching posts, many cats turn to your valuable furniture, wood paneling, carpets or curtains around the home to relieve some very basic needs. 

Cats scratch for a number of very good reasons including:

  • Maintaining claw strength and health
  • Marking territory through scent glands in their paws
  • Stretching their spine and muscles
  • Relieving pent-up energy
  • Annoying their owners who refuse to buy the preferred cat treats

Invest in a good cat scratching post to look after your cat’s essential needs and save your furniture and your sanity.

What is the best design for cat scratching posts?

The best cat scratching posts have a number of common elements and these can make all the difference between having a well loved useful cat scratching post and having your curtains shredded on a regular basis.

  • Strength – The best cat scratching posts feature heavy duty construction that ensures their survival even after frequent revisits from your resident killer cat
  • Stability – Cats put an amazing amount of energy and force into scratching and the post needs to be sufficiently heavy and stable to resists the cat’s pulling power
  • Height – Cat scratching posts need to be tall enough to provide cats with a good spine stretch

Great cat scratching towers also include features such as perches because cats love to rest in high places where they have a good ‘bird’s eye’ view of the world.

Soft materials are good for sleeping platforms because pampered cats expect a high degree of luxury.

Tree-like construction adds to the pleasure of exploring the cat scratcher and climbing up and around the various levels keeps your cat flexible.

Hanging ropes and toy mice are other attractive features on well-designed cat scratchers. They provide an element of movement that cats just love getting their claws into.

What’s the best rope for cat scratching posts?

Sisal rope is usually chosen as the best rope for cat scratchers. It’s a natural fibre from the agave plant.

Sisal has very high levels of abrasion resistance and cats love getting their claws into the rough texture.

Sisal rope won’t break up and leave a mess around the house. Sisal rope is bio degradable so great for the environment as well.

Somerzby have chosen only the very best cat scratching posts, towers and perches for your cats.

The Somerzby range has been tested and approved by some of Australia’s most demanding cats.
