I've been using the cardboard SmartyKat Super Scratchers for a while now, and I wanted to switch to a permanent scratching post rather than continuing to buy a new cardboard scratcher every couple of weeks. Plus Cleo likes to stretch when she scratches, and it's hard for her to do that with the scratcher on the floor. I purchased a scratcher that can be hung from a door knob. This is also to encourage them to scratch on the scratcher rather than on the carpet by the door. Do you just run their paws on the scratcher to teach them what they're supposed to do with it, or let them figure it out on their own? I put a little catnip on the new scratcher to engage their interest in it.
