Which Is Better: Rope or Woven Sisal Cat Scratching Posts?
If your cat still has his claws, it's essential to find a scratching post that your furry friend will prefer over your furniture. Many pet owners find that their cats like sisal scratching posts, and that they prefer it to other materials (including upholstery!). But not all sisal cat scratching posts are made equal, and not all are as effective as the rest. When it comes to choosing between rope and woven sisal, you'll find woven sisal to be a much better solution for your cat and home.
Cats love woven sisal due to its rough texture. Scratching posts made from woven sisal have a more resistant surface, which makes scratching more challenging – and fun! – for the cat. They are also more durable, which means your scratching post won't shred and the fabric won't come apart. Rope Sisal can become sharp after scratching causing the cat discomfort and leading to the cat abandoning the post all together. By choosing a woven sisal post, you will be protecting your furniture and giving your cat an opportunity to stretch out, mark his territory and shed the outer layer of his claws.
There are many different sizes and styles of woven sisal cat scratching posts to choose from. Thanks to sisal's natural color and interesting texture, any post you choose will complement, not compromise, your interior design.
