Cat Scratching

Scratching in cats is a normal behavior, serving to groom the front claws and leave markers of the cat’s presence. Cats may also scratch to stretch their muscles. Proper training to scratch on appropriate surfaces, combined with routine nail care, can prevent damage in the home.

If your cat already scratches in an undesirable area, talk to your Dr. Waxman or a veterinary staff member. They will help you map out a training regimen and determine your cat’s likely preferences—for a vertical or horizontal scratching post, for the type of material that will draw the cat to the post, for the location of the post. You can then make or purchase posts of similar fabrics. Never yell at or punish your cat for inappropriate scratching - they cannot understand why you are angry and can become anxious and thus more likely to want to scratch and mark their territory.
