Cat Furniture Is Necessary for A Healthy, Happy Cat
If you reside in a suburban area or in the countryside, then you probably allow your cat to go outside, in which case cat furniture is not a necessity. However, if you do not allow your cat to venture outside or you live in a city and your cat stays inside all the time, then you and your feline friend can both benefit from cat furniture.
Why Your Cat Needs Cat Furniture
Following are some reasons an indoor cat needs furniture of its own.
- Scratching – A cat naturally likes to scratch. Most people think that when a cat scratches it is trying to sharpen or trim its claws. What it is actually doing is shedding its claws. When a cat scratches your furniture or a scratching post, it leaves the outer layer of the claw behind which encourages new growth.
- Romping and climbing – Your cat’s natural instinct is to jump, climb, hide, and chase. To survive in the wild cats need to hunt and kill prey. This natural behavior still dominates how your pet cat acts indoors.
- Napping – cats sleep up to sixteen hours a day. Therefore, they love a safe and warm place to sleep rather than a loud or stressful place.
