Your cat scratches regularly in order to help keep her claws in good working order. This behavior helps her remove portions of her claws that aren’t of use to her anymore, and she is also able to file her claws down a bit so they don’t get too long.
Consider your pet’s ability to scratch in your home, and how many of your belongings she has decided to do this on. Purchasing an item for her to scratch on can really help her make the most of this time as well as preventing her from ruining your favorite items. There are scratching posts available at most pet stores, but there are also other options. Climbing trees and scratching mats have become popular as well, so your choice really just depends on what you think your pet would utilize the most.
