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.
