As everyone knows scratch posts are ‘a gotta-have item’ for any cat owner. They’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 ‘significant’ was needed. We looked high and low for a scratch post and just couldn’t find any that were big enough.

We built them nice and tall to give the cats a good stretch while they scratch. We’ll show you how we made ours in a future post if you’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 he’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, I’m glad it’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 doesn’t normally scratch for very long so it’s difficult to get pictures unless you right there waiting with the camera. Luckily this time we were. Enjoy!
