Dear Dr. Schelling,

Is one scratching post enough for my cat?

-Marco in New York

Dear Marco,

You can never have too many scratching posts. Most cats appreciate being able to scratch on a variety of different materials, and on a mix of upright posts and flat or inclined scratching pads. As a result, they scratch more, which exercises their bodies, reduces stress, and provides multiple other benefits. If you place various types of scratching furniture in your cat's favorite locations, you'll have a happy scratcher. To learn more about multiple scratching surfaces read my article on THE BENEFITS OF MULTIPLE SCRATCHING SURFACES.

Now that the holiday season is upon us I know I'm going to be very busy but I want to make sure my cat gets some of that holiday cheer too. What is the best way to show my cat I care?

Dear Kelly,

Meow, I like this question! I have the purrfect solution: spoil your cat. Yes, indeed we all need to be spoiled now and then (or in my case all the time). Check out this article for ways to spoil your cat.

PURRFECT POST DELUXE: I've been known to scratch a rug or two, for some reason the humans don't seem to like this. But now that I have a Purrfect Post Deluxe I could care less about rugs. I love sinking my claws into this sisal post and scratching up a storm. It is also great for a good stretch, it's like my total kitty gym.
