Why do they do it?
- "To remove old nail sheaths from the claws
- To exercise and tone muscles
- To relieve stress, frustration and boredom

It seems as if some cat people have figured out how to not have their cats destroy their furniture and a scratching post is part of the equation. This tip comes from a few months back...
Gene says: For a handsome scratching post that is neither pastel colored nor assembled from carpet remants, check out the Ultimate Scratching Post.
Esmartcats.com sells this thingy for $69.95, which seems like a lot for a post, but not too much for saving furniture. (Thanks, Gene!) MGR
