Your cat’s claws are an important part of her overall being. They provide defense, aid in agility, and when a cat stretches out and claws a scratching post, she’s also exercising important back and leg muscles.
Here are some tips to help you manage your cat’s claws.
- In order to keep your cat happy and your furniture safe, provide a variety of scratching posts in different shapes, sizes, and materials. Rope, sisal, carpet, and cardboard posts are all available, and there should be at least one tall enough to accommodate a full-body “stretch and scratch”. With plenty of surfaces to choose from, it’s likely your cat won’t feel the need to use your sofa as her favorite scratching place.
- Keeping your cat’s claws trimmed also cuts down on unnecessary scratching. One of the newest and easiest ways to do this is with the PediPaws(tm) nail trimmer, which is painless and easy to use. There’s also the option of “claw caps”, which are made of a soft plastic material. You can find these claw caps at Pet Supermarket. Just ask us for Soft Claws(tm)!.
