Scratching cardboard for cats is a type of scratching post or toy that is made from corrugated cardboard. These types of scratching posts are designed to provide cats with a safe and appropriate surface to scratch, which can help to reduce destructive scratching on furniture and other household items. Scratching is a natural behavior for cats, as it helps to keep their claws healthy and maintain their territorial marking. Corrugated cardboard is a popular material for scratching posts because it is inexpensive, durable, and can mimic the texture of tree bark.
Some scratching boards are even infused with catnip to attract cats. It’s also important to note that cats have different preferences when it comes to scratching, some prefer vertical surfaces while others prefer horizontal ones, so it’s a good idea to offer a variety of scratching options for your cat.
