North American Pet Carpet Cat Post 26 Inches Information




Cats have a natural instinct to claw and scratch. While this may be destructive to your furniture or other cloth covered items around the house, one thing needs to be kept in mind: Your cat is not willfully destroying your furniture; it is just acting out of instinct. If you wish to protect these materials and furniture in your house, invest in a cat post where you cat can scratch to its heart content and leave your other belongings alone.

Why do cats scratch? There are many theories, but the most commonly offered explanation is that the scratching instinct is aimed at keeping its claws sharp and ready for catching its prey. Unlike dogs in which most breeds have lost their hunting extinct, most cats still retain their hunting instincts. Part of its hunter instinct is to have sharp claws which it can use to catch prey.

Domestic cats are very efficient hunters. If you have ever seen your cat drag home a bird or anything it has caught, it is just exercising its hunting instincts. Part of its strong feline hunting instinct is keeping its equipment in tiptop shape and that includes scratching.

Not all scratching posts are the same. While you are indulging your cat's scratching tendencies, make sure to get a scratching post that is safe for your cat. Make sure that it has enough padding so that your cat doesn't cut itself when it scratches on wood that splinters and gets under its nails. This would be a very painful experience for your cats.

Avoid scratching posts that have nails sticking out or have construction and design issues that would pose a safety risk for your cat. Thankfully, the North American Pet Carpet Cat Post from Pet Store has been created. The North American Pet Carpet Cat is a cat scratching post that is designed for your cat's maximum safety. This cat post is wrapped in carpet so there is enough padding between the inside material and your cat's claws so it doesn't hurt your cat's paws nor its claws. The carpeting is also very soothing to your cat's touch making it scratch longer to get all of its scratching urges out of its system. If you're looking to safely protect your furniture and other items from your cat's scratching urges, invest in the North American Pet Carpet Cat Post today.

Thick, New, Catnip treated carpeting provides an excellent texture to satisfy a cat's desire to scratch. Our premium grade carpet posts are made from high quality materials and last longer than other brands. Each post comes with a sturdy base. Good for cats of all ages.

Comments: I am so pleased with the value of this post. Even the price + shipping it beats any local store or online price. My oldest cat, Scoop, tried it out right away. With a little help from catnip, both of my cats were acting silly on it. I know they will continue to use it. Still new, it doesn't show signs of real wear. I am hoping it will last a long time. Previous reviewers are also happy with it. I think if you need a new scratching post this will do it for you.

Comments: It is very difficult to find a cat post that has a carpeted base AND the post in the middle! Posts on the side make the post tip over, and my cat doesn't like the wooden base of most cat posts. This post has held up very well! The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is I wish it were taller, as my cat is long and he doesn't get a full reach on this post! (At one time I had a 36 inch post, but the store doesn't make them with the post in the middle and a carpeted base anymore). I will buy this product from Pet Store in the future!

Comments: The carpet post works wonderful!! My cats use it often. It doesn't tip over and it's tall enough so the cats can really stretch their legs. The cost was extremely reasonable and it came assembled. I would definately recommend this product.

Comments: The cat post seems to be well made. As soon as I opened the delivery box and put the cat post in my room, my cat went to it immediately. He enjoys it very much. He scratches the post quite often and then wraps his paws around the pole--- like he is showing how much he likes it. I recommend this cat post for any one who has a cat!
