Thank you all so much for all the good wishes after yesterdays post. I'm still excited and very smiley :) Earlier today I went through comments and questions which you have asked since I started blogging in May to make sure I've answered them and I came across this one which I realise I hadn't.
It's about finding a good scratching/clawing device for cats. The reason I haven't really answered it is because...
... Mini and Bonus are pretty good cats. They don't claw or scratch at our furniture (that much).
Bonus actually prefers clawing at the oak tree just outside our house...
...while Mini sometimes does claw at the store bought corner scratch post which we wedged between the window sill and floor.
Mini is actually more of a floor scratcher although we got her to scratch the post for this photo. She likes to claw at the few carpets in our home like the sisal ones by the front and back doors. In this photo there's a bath towel covering the sisal carpet at the back door because it helps keep the living room cleaner when Mini and Bonus jump in from the kitty flap in that door.
When occasionally there are claw marks on the furniture Mini is usually the culprit... A very cute culprit though so we usually just go "oh, now Mini, why did you do that you cute, pretty and very naughty cat?" In very soft sweet voices... Hmmm. Not very efficient. I so wonder why.
