One of the most fun traits that a cat has is its energetic nature; always leaping at things, always going up on a perch, climbing. A cat is a natural climber; that is what they do in the wild; that is what they do at home; it's their natural instinct. Part of the reason that they climb is because they are natural hunters.
If you ever keep a cat outdoors, you'd know by the little gifts it gives you of things that it has hunted, that it is quite a capable hunter. Never underestimate a cat, no matter how domesticated they may be. However, this instinct needs to be exercised and it's going to come out one way or the other.
Either you're going to have to invest in a well designed climbing and scratching post for your cat or you'll pay for it anyway when your cat scratches your furniture, clothes or other items in your household. The investment doesn't need to be expensive. You can get a specially designed cat tree that satisfies not just your cat's climbing urges but also their scratching urges.
Cats again are hunters, and to hone their hunting equipment namely their claws, they have to scratch at something. It finally boils down to either you getting them a specialized scratching and climbing post or they scratch and climb over your property.
The Trixie Oviedo Cat Tree from Pet Store
is a good cat accessory to get, to satisfy your cat's climbing and scratching urges. It has a padding that is comfortable and engages your cat's sense of touch, while also protecting its claws. The last thing you would want is for your cat to scratch against hard wood, causing splinters and debris to get under its nails, resulting to a painful trip to the veterinarian for your cat.
The Trixie Oviedo Cat Tree is also multi-storied so your cat can climb the stairs. It even has a hollow hole that it can go through and tunnel under while it is exploring. It makes for a great toy
and entertainment center for your cat and it can exhaust all its climbing and scratching urges at the same time.
The Trixie Oviedo Cat Tree is not too big and not too small. It is 42 inches high, so it is tall enough to be a challenge for a cat but not too big that it becomes too bulky for your home. It is just right size, the right shape and the right texture to provide entertainment for your cat for a long time. Check out the The Trixie Oviedo Cat Tree today.
