Product Description

Sturdy wall-mounted platform

Cats love vertical territory - the higher the better. It gives them a feeling of security and mastery over their environment. The Sisal Wall Perch allows the cat to jump to an acceptable resting perch where it can nap or just survey the home territory. All cats love high places, but it is especially important that multi-cat families provide a number of wall perches. This allows the cats to space themselves throughout the home. This will also help to reduce territorial disputes and promote harmony in the cat family. The perches are easily mounted on the wall. You decide where these kitty masterpieces will be showcased on your walls. The sky’s the limit!

Scratching Solutions

Smart and caring cat owners know that claws are very important to cats.  Claws give the cat a sense of security, knowing that their defense system is intact.  They also allow the cat to grasp and hold objects as well as establish footing for walking, running, springing, climbing and stretching. Sisal scratching products are designed to maximize your cat’s scratching pleasure by providing an appealing target for territorial marking, exercise, and a playful warm-up.  By regularly trimming your cat’s nails and offering a suitable scratching item, you are providing a natural outlet for a normal, happy and healthy behavior and you will be rewarded with a satisfied and confident companion.

Why do cats scratch?

  • To remove old nail sheaths from the claws
  • To exercise and tone muscles
  • To relieve stress, frustration and boredom
  • To "warm up" for a vigorous play session
  • To mark territory

Training tips:

  • Place the post in a room where the cat spends a lot of time. Cats often like to stretch and scratch when they wake up from a nap.
  • To introduce the post to your cat try using catnip as a lure. (For most cats a lure is unnecessary, but fun.) Rub catnip onto the sisal material and call the cat over to the post.
  • Scratch your nails along the surface of the material. This will attract the cat and at the same time teach him where to scratch.
  • After your cat begins to scratch, praise him and give him a food treat. (Small kittens can be trained to climb the post by showing them food treats and placing it at the top of the post.
  • If your cat has already been scratching a piece of furniture, place the post directly in front of it.
  • Temporarily cover the previously scratched areas with a few strips of double-sided carpet tape or clear double-sided tape strips that are designed for this purpose. This will help redirect your cat's scratching activities to the post.
  • Most cats are easily trained but if your cat is the exception, please see catsinternational.org for free behavior counseling.

 

Important note about declawing:

Scientific journals refer to declawing as "elective mutilation". It is an amputation of the cat's toes comparable to the removal of the human finger at the first knuckle. It handicaps the cat physically, socially and psychologically for the rest of its life, predisposing the cat to certain temperament and behavior problems such as shyness, biting and litter box avoidance. By regularly trimming your cat's nails and offering a suitable scratching target you are providing a natural outlet for a normal, healthy behavior and you will be rewarded with a content and confident companion
