Cats have a natural urge to scratch and climb. The scratching instinct comes from the need to keep their claws sharp and ready. Cats are natural hunters and its most indispensable tool is sharp and clean claws. When you see your cats scratching, it's only just exercising its instincts and keeping its hunting tools ready.
If your cat is scratching on furniture or other items in your household that you don't want your cat to scratch, it's time to invest in a cat scratching post. Once your cat gets used to scratching this post, it will leave your other items alone. This will give you a lot of peace of mind and also gives your cat a specialized piece of equipment where it can safely act out its urges without harming itself. If it's scratching on a piece of wood on your property, some of that wood might splinter and injure your cat's paws
or break its claws or any other possible physical injuries. If you buy specifically designed equipment, a lot of that physical danger and risks are minimized.
Another instinct that a cat has is to jump to heights and swing on things. This is just part of the instincts that it takes from the wild. Cats are natural hunters: they jump up on vegetation to catch prey or swing on things to pounce on prey that is running underneath. Whatever the situation, cats have this jumping and pouncing urge.
