Mounty Post is a sturdy wall-mounted cat scratching pole. With its pole diameter of 14cm/5.5", it's the ultimate and versatile cat scratcher, great for cats of all shapes and sizes but best suited for small-medium breeds of cats.
Thin, flimsy poles hold no real interest for cats because they need tall, sturdy, and stable surfaces covered in materials they can shred. They need to keep their basic natural needs in check, and they do it by stretching and clawing on this tree-like post.
This deluxe edition pole is great for households with a larger number of cats because it gives cats much more maneuvering on the pole, and two cats can easily climb up and down without disturbing one another. Smaller cats could easily play hide and seek around it.
The pole is multifunctional in the sense that it fulfills both the instinctive nature of cats and the enriching one, where it's a place for keeping their minds and bodies active, enriching their lives, and enticing them to play and exercise more.
Since it's wall-mounted you won't have to worry about the pole tipping over and injuring your cats and you'll gain back some extra floor space.
You'll impress your kitties with the way they can use it and you'll be impressed with the way it looks. It's certainly a big statement and not something you can hide, but why would you when it looks stylish and modern, and the color scheme goes great with your decor.
This natural Sisal-wrapped cat scratch post is the perfect new place to sink their claws into. You'll thank us when this furniture protector becomes their favorite scratching and stretching spot. You could now finally order that new sofa you've been eyeing on (that's the thing we did when we solved our problem).
Let's see who the king will be, perching high, on top of the post, all majestic and proud.
Sturdy, made to last.
WHY DO CATS SCRATCH ON OUR FURNITURE?
The basic thing we got to keep in mind is that cats love scratching. It's so much more than just an activity, it's a need, as important need as breathing. Our cats are endlessly fascinating. The one anatomical ability that they share with no other species is their paws. They are instruments of communication, a tool that supports their predatory nature. They're so much more than just for walking, jumping, catching prey, digging, and standing, but even the cats' walk is a unique tool for moving silently, as they walk on tips and balls of their toes. Cat paws have glands(interdigital glands on all four of their feet) and they give off a strong scent when the paw is stretched and the claws are extended. By scratching they mark their territory and leave their "signature" pheromones. It's their calling card, their online profile, think of it as their unique "fingerprint".
Also, cat claws are made up of a few layers. As the claw grows, the outer layer sheds which exposes a sharp new claw underneath. Their nails need maintenance just as ours, we just trim them differently. As indoor-only cats don't have the opportunity for natural wear and tear, they need some stronger materials such as sisal rope to keep their claws healthy.
Scratching relieves anxiety, stress, and frustration.
Cats often direct scratching to furniture and carpets as they need a surface that will catch on their nails in order to pull off the old lose sheat, and there is a reason cats prefer to scratch on the sides of sofas for example, as these may have the scents of the outdoors, or bags, shoes, guests. They're replacing the foreign scent with their own. Also, sofas are padded, and many cats like the way claws punch through and leave loose pieces behind.
Scratching is a natural behavior and we should not expect our cat to stop doing so. When a cat scratches, they remove the loose outer layer of the claw and stretch their backs and muscles.
The one thing that is lacking in most store-bought cat trees is that the scratching posts are way too short and unstable, often made with unsuitable materials, which all leads to a cat finding a more "suitable" place to scratch.
When considering buying a cat tree or a scratching post, it's necessary to provide your cat with options, especially if you don't know their preferences. Some cats love a vertical post, while others prefer a horizontal one. Horizontal scratchers are great for older cats and those with disabilities. A vertical scratching post should be at least tall enough for your cat to stand on its back legs at full stretch and strong enough to withstand the weight.
Cats usually scratch after taking a nap, as they need to do some kitty yoga and stretch those muscles so the scratching area should be in the vicinity.
They often have strong preferences on the materials and places they scratch and one thing we should never do is give them attention when they're clawing on something we don't approve of. We should redirect them and only give them attention, treats and pet them when they are using their scratching post. If you catch your cat clawing on the carpet or the sofa, do not communicate, don't yell, don't do anything that it could misconstrue as being given attention, as they will just keep doing it.
The important thing is to reward the behavior you want to see.
