Scratching Posts & Pads

Scratching Posts & Pads

We stock a range of Unique and Robust Cat Scratching Posts, Climbers and Activity Centres to encourage natural scratching behaviour! All cats instinctively need to scratch something to clean their claws and also to mark their territory, especially indoor cats who can not maintain their claws by scratching a tree or fence in your garden, so it's essential to provide them with a suitable cat scratching post to prevent them from taking their frustrations out on your expensive furniture, carpet or wallpaper.

Simply providing your cat or kitten with a scratch post or activity centre will save you money and your furniture from your cat's claws and provide them with essential stimulation and hours of fun. Our range of Cat Scratching Posts and Activity Centres use catnip, tough sisal and anti-scratch fabrics to encourage the natural behaviour of your cats and kittens.

Regardless of the design, colour or size of the cat scratching post or activity centre you decide to purchase all the scratch posts we supply use catnip, a natural herbal attractant that is part of the mint family, that cat's love to roll in, sniff and lick if planted in your garden, to encourage and stimulate them to use the cat scratching post rather than clawing your home furniture.

Where do you suggest I place my new cat scratch post?


Providing your cat with an alternative to scratching furniture in your home to sharpen and remove worn out claws, will save you cash, tears and money in the long run. We recommend to customers that you place your cat scratching post or activity centre in a room that your cat either spends a lot of time in or close to a piece of furniture your cat likes to scratch when your not looking! All the cat activity centres and scratching posts featured on the website are sold at very competitive prices, why not take advantage of our special free deals on selected cat scratching posts shown below?

Whether you are replacing a worn out scratch post, purchasing a new one for a kitten or just looking for something different, you've come to the right place! For example if your cat is destructive or you own several cats, maybe you should consider purchasing the Ancol Fat Boy Cat Scratching Post, that is enormous and extremely tough, alternatively if you are looking for something cute for a kitten the Florence Cat Scratching post will probably be ideal or perhaps the popular Canac Extra Tall Cat Scratching Post Set that contains two sisal cat scratch posts, one blue and one beige that have catnip mice that dangle and rotate around the scratching posts for fun, that all include Free UK Mainland Delivery!

Practical cat scratching post advice


Scratching is a territorial and instinctive behaviour, cats like rough surfaces then can shred, consequently supplying your cat with a suitable cat scratching post, such as sisal scratch post will encourage them to use the post rather than your furnishings! We suggest you choose a scratching post that is suitable for your cats age and energy levels as older cats like to relax more than kittens.

A scratching post should be tall enough for your cat or kitten to stretch out and claw on, working the muscles of your cat and keeping them in shape. The cat scratching post should also ideally be secure so that it doesn't topple over, so we advise purchasing a heavy or large cat post if you have a large cat such as a main coon!

Scratching allows a cat to mark their territory, so a cat scratch post should be placed in a room in your house that is used by all the family, not hidden away out of view. Place the post where your cat likes to scratch, near a sofa, chair or curtains, you may need a few scratch posts to cover your cat's favourite scratching places.

We also suggest you place a scratch post where you cat likes to sleep, as many cats like to stretch themselves out and scratch in the morning or in the middle of the night.

You can also encourage your cat to scratch the post by feeding and playing with them by the scratching post, rubbing home grown cat nip into the post, rewarding your cat with a treat for using the it and attach toys around it to make scratching the post more enjoyable and capture their interest!

Please look at the Cat Activity Centres page on this website for more unique cat scratching posts and furniture, that are designed to keep your cat occupied and out of mischief for hours by providing them with several platforms to climb, scratch and explore, as well as hide aways and hammocks to sleep the hours away until their owners return or until food time!
