Cats love to scratch, which usually means your furniture, drapes, and anything else fragile and valuable while your hundred dollar scratching post gets completely ignored. While there are different types of scratching posts such as pads and posts, you may also want to consider the age of your cat to find the right scratching post.

Kittens often prefer horizontal surfaces while adult cats prefer scratching posts they can use to mark their territory. Whatever scratching post you get, find one that your cat enjoys, even if it means buying several types of scratching posts and going bankrupt in the process.
