For years I’ve told people that cat behavior fits under a classic Bell Curve when it comes to clawing Natural Scratch.  Some have told me their cats went for the post while it was being assembled; others have said their cats ignored the post and clawed a nearby couch.  This is why training is often necessary.  I mention this so you aren’t fooled by promises of a post or pad being a set-and-forget solution.  Yes, that might be the case with cats on the cooperative end of the curve, but for those on the other end you’ll need the interactive features and training method that comes with Natural Scratch.  Our goal is to help you train your cat so he or she will claw Natural Scratch and nothing else.  It’s worked well for thousands of cats and people.
