    Scratching Post, Indeed!

    My wife bought a scratching post for Sammy:



    Perhaps one day he will actually us it, instead of the chair and the couch and.... NOT!

    Seems like a candidate for dog/cat shaming! Funny websites...

    HA! I got a post kinda like that with a bunch of rubber nubs on it that the cats are supposed to rub their necks on, they've ignored it for at least 6 months! Yet they still rub their necks on everything else in the house!

    Supposedly scenting the scratching post with catnip or other scents can induce the cat to start using it. Search the internet for more details, but that might be worth a try.

    Oh, and cute cat

    Ha ha! My sister's cats use the scratching posts - mostly. They've destroyed the carpeting on a couple of them which was replaced with sessile rope. They've pretty much destroyed that too.

    I love how they pull back their ears and get a demented look on their faces when they are clawing the posts. Obviously an activity they take seriously and derive great pleasure from.
