Great & Small Cat ScratchersCat scratchers enrich the home environment for your cat – ensure your home is cat friendly with a Great & Small Cat Scratchers & Furniture.
Our new range of Great & Small cat scratchers and cat furniture are made from hard wearing sisal and soft cozy plush fabric - perfect for keeping those little claws amused. Our range includes starter scratchers, ideal for your new kittens, medium sized for those with limited space and our larger scratchers are great for two cat households.
The Great & Small scratchers will enable your cats to perform their natural behaviour and protect your home.
Scratching has several functions, one of the most important being keeping a cat's hunting weapons sharp. Scratching also leaves scent marks in a territory - secretions of watery sweat from between the cat's pads leave a scent message on top of the physical marks.
It is important to provide a scratching post for claw sharpening. If your cat has damaged an area in your home because they have had nothing to scratch on, try placing the post in front of the damaged area.
Gently wipe the cat's paws down the post to leave some scent on it and show the cat what to do. Do this several times when the post is new. If you catch your cat in the act of scratching elsewhere, carry it to the post and encourage it to scratch there instead.
Pop into Scampers to see the new range. Please feel free to speak to one of the Scampers Pet Care Advisors should you need guidance or help in choosing the best scratcher for your cat.
