    Catrix Starterset 1 cat scratching furniture is important to your cat to sharpen claws and mark territoryScratching is also a territorial instinct for your cat. Through scratching your cat places her mark and establishes her turf. Cats mark their domains with more than just visible signs of claw marks.

    Your cat's paws also have scent glands that leave their own special scent on their territory. The scratching furniture at home becomes your cat’s own space which she often returns to. It is important for your cat to have their own space in the house.

  • How to train your cat to use scratching furniture

    Catrix Starterset 2CATNIP can be a great aid to entice your cat to use her scratching furniture. Rub or spray the catnip on the scratching furniture, and your cat will enthusiastically start digging her claws into the furniture. However, please be aware that most kittens don’t react to catnip until they are about 5-6 months of age.


    The position of the cat scratching furniture should be taken into account, when training your cat. Scratching furniture should be positioned near to places where your cat spends most of her time, for example where they sleep or eat. Upon awakening, or after a nice meal, your cat likes to stretch out and to dig her claws into a scratching post.


    If you see your cat scratching your home interior tell her NO in a firm voice, then gently pick her up and take her to the scratching furniture. You can help her by placing her paws on the furniture, stimulate scratching and let her mark her territory. This way she is likely to return to the scratching furniture by herself. Like most training, the earlier you start, the better.
