When it comes to scratching posts, more is better. They are one of the most important pieces of cat furniture, and every cat household should have at least one in every room. In addition to providing a natural outlet for your cat’s need to scratch, they can also prevent a variety of behavioral problems.
Since we also have to live with the cat furniture we provide for our feline family member’s benefit and enjoyment, I’m always on the lookout for scratching posts that combine function with a pleasing appearance.
Three different scratching surfaces
Different cats have different scratching and surface preferences. Some are vertical scratchers, others horizontal scratchers, and some are in between the two. Surface choices range from carpet to sisal to cardboard. The Sunflower Cat Scratcher addresses all three preferences with three different surfaces: a carpeted “lawn,” a sisal covered post, and a sisal scratch pad tilted at an angle. The sunflower blossom leaves are made out of felt.
Measuring 18 inches high and 12 inches wide and deep, this is a relatively small scratcher, but it makes up for its small size with a high cuteness factor.
