PAWS Approved Cat Climbers/Trees and Cat Scratchers
Climbers give cats and kittens somewhere to rest, but more importantly, somewhere to appropriately scratch. If cats can't get a good stretch when they want to scratch, most of the time they won't use what you give them. The below images are climbers that our foster mom's have tested and their cats have approved.
If you don't have the money or don't want to invest in a climber, the below are several types of cat scratchers that have also been tested by fosters and cat approved. Cardboard scratchers sometimes require some cat nip to get your cat to realize that's where they should scratch. The cardboard can be turned over when they shred a side, and refills can be bought when they've shredded both sides.
