As everyone knows scratch posts are â€˜a gotta-have itemâ€™ for any cat owner. Theyâ€™re essential for satisfying your cats need to scratch. They also keep your furniture from getting ripped to pieces.
We built 3 of our own scratch posts for the Band of Cats because we felt something more â€˜significantâ€™ was needed. We looked high and low for a scratch post and just couldnâ€™t find any that were big enough.
We built them nice and tall to give the cats a good stretch while they scratch. Weâ€™ll show you how we made ours in a future post if youâ€™re interested and plan to make one of your own someday.
All the cats use and love them everyday, but Dax really goes to town on them when heâ€™s in a scratching mood. We call him our Scratch Post Ninja. He really digs into the heavy duty nylon rope and you can hear him scratching all over the house.
He usually begins with a big stretch then moves in closer and really digs in for some quick speed scratching. All I can say is, Iâ€™m glad itâ€™s not my furniture or even worse, me!
Anyway, here is Dax in a rare sequence of pics as he scratches away ninja style. He doesnâ€™t normally scratch for very long so itâ€™s difficult to get pictures unless you right there waiting with the camera. Luckily this time we were. Enjoy!
Dax warms-up with the all important full-body stretch.
He pulls out of his stretch and moves closer to begin the ninja scratching.
Dax is up nice and close for some serious scratching.
Dax has his ears back as he digs into the rope with his quick claws.
More scratching left to do.
Dax is almost finished another noisy session on the scratch post.
