Cat scratching is quite normal behaviour for a cat, and you need to re-direct his scratching to appropriate objects such as a cat scratching post. The consensus from the various Societies such as the Royal Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) is that de-clawing is cruel and unnecessary.
However, if you feel that you must either declaw your cat or give your cat up, we would rather see your cat stay in their home and be your lifelong companion and a cat scratch post just maybe the answer.
Scratching is an instinctive behaviour for cats. It helps cats shed small sheaths situated on their claws, this is also as a way of scent marking objects in the house or outside.
Scratching is also an instinctive method used by cats when marking out their territory. Each scratch leaves a secretion from glands situated within a cat’s foot, this scent is used to gain another cats attention. We have a great range of cat scratch posts which your cat will love, providing your cat a designated place to scratch and also save your furniture!
