The corners of my one room that’s got carpet is ruined thanks to my cats using the carpet as a cat scratcher. Though they’re no longer here with us (they passed away at the beginning of the year), their memories are all still here with me each time I look at the ugly torn up carpet in my bedroom.
It’s not a good look so I don’t suggest allowing your cats to scratch where ever they want. They need to scratch to keep their nails short and that’s where cat scratchers come into play. We picked up a simple carpeted board that we lean on the wall for our new cat Ariel, but we’ve never seen her actually use it.
This weekend, we went and got a more elaborate cat scratcher — a carpeted cat tree. Something she can use to keep her nails in true beauty form and a fun thing just for her to lounge and play on.
If you’ve got a cat — or are thinking of getting one — you may want to check out these 10 cat scratchers you can buy off Etsy sellers and save your floor carpets:
