How To Choose The Best Sisal Scratching Post For Your Space

Cat scratching posts made from sisal remnants are preferred by most cats. But with so many designs available, how do you choose the best sisal post for your space? Here is a quick guide to get you started.


Scratching post with a perch: If your cat loves to be lazy, this style could be the purrfect fit. While the sisal post is ideal for scratching, the carpeted perch allows your cat to curl up and take a nap. 

Scratching post with ramp: This post comes with a sturdy ramp for cats who tend to scratch aggressively. If a simple scratch post just isn't enough for your furry friend, consider one with a ramp to keep your cat happy and scratching. 

Regular scratching post: If you have limited space, a regular sisal cat scratching post will work well for both your home and your cat. Consider various sizes to match your cat's scratching preferences.  For example, 40” scratching post is perfect for cats who love to climb! 

Litter box mat: In the room where you keep your litter box, spread out a little box mat as well. These sisal mats are a great way to prevent your cat from tracking litter all over the floor.

Hanging scratching pad: If your cat loves scratching your beautiful wood doors, hang a sisal scratching pad around the door knob. These pads can be an alternative to scratching posts and help prevent cats from damaging doors and other wooden furniture. 

Why A Scratching Post Is A Good Idea For Your Home

Cats scratch for several reasons. Sometimes it's to shed the dead outer layer of their claws and other times it is to mark their territory. Cats also love to scratch simply because they like to stretch out their bodies and have the chance to flex their paws. 

The problem with cats scratching when they live inside a house, however, is that they often damage furniture in the process. This is why it's beneficial for cat owners to also own a cat scratching post. With a post, your cat can stretch out and scratch whenever he or she wants and you won't have to deal with unsightly furniture. 

Providing a scratching post for your feline friend is easy. Once you have the scratching post in your home, encourage your cat to use it by sprinkling the post with catnip or hanging a toy from the top. It might take some time for your cat to adapt, but you can speed up the process by rewarding your cat each time he or she uses the post instead of your furniture to scratch. 

 Cat scratching posts are the best way to keep both you and your cat happy.  Order a set of sisal remnants to complete your post.
