Why is your kitten scratching?

pointy nails

As your kitten grows, so will his nails! And he will scratch to keep them sharp. Scratching is a natural method of marking territory and an excellent way to gain good flexibility. In addition to leaving physical marks, scratching will also release hormones that will leave a scent behind. This helps him mark his territory and give him peace of mind about his environment.

You shouldn't discourage your kitten from scratching ÔÇô it's a natural, healthy activity. However, it is clear that you will want to ensure that your furniture is not damaged. The best way to prevent this is to provide your kitten with the type of scratching post covered with a rough surface, such as rope or bark, which seem to be their favorites. Place the scratching post in his favorite room and encourage him to use the board by scratching in a similar manner to his actions. You can also sprinkle some catnip on top to make it irresistible.

The kitten's nails will grow constantly, so you will need to trim them every few months. Your veterinarian will be happy to do the job for you or can recommend the right nail clippers if you decide to trim your nails at home. Just remember to ask your veterinarian for advice on the safest way to trim nails.
