Cats are natural-born hunters. If you have ever had your cat bring home a partially eaten or freshly killed "treat", you would know exactly how efficient and crafty of a hunter you have. Do not let if fool you because even if your cat is purring or scratching up against you and just being really affectionate, deep down it is a hunter. Just like any hunter in the wild, it needs to take care of its weapons. Primarily these are two instincts of climbing and razor sharp claws. Unlike a tiger whose claws are quite huge and can be quite deadly, domestic cat's claws are smaller and less harmful, but still quite deadly if you are a small bird or a mouse.
Your pet needs to sharpen its claws to stay healthy because that is part of its instinct. That is why cats have scratching instinct that they need to exercise to keep their claws in excellent shape. You can get some peace of mind by buying your cat a cat tree because if not, it might take out its scratching instinct on your furniture, clothes or any other household item. This might be a stressful time for both you and your cat. Get your cat a cat tree with special padding so it does not injure itself while it is scratching. Also a cat tree
