Cats scratch when they play, to sharpen their claws, to relieve stress, and to mark their territory. If you don’t have a scratcher, your feline may direct this behavior onto your furniture instead. To find the best cat scratcher, we sought the help of 74 cats and kittens at the Little Wanderers NYC rescue group. Our experts loved the Pioneer Pet’s SmartCat The Ultimate Scratching Post because it’s sturdy, time-tested, and tall enough for even large cats to enjoy with ease.
