One of the best ways to prevent cats from using your fine furniture for scratching, napping, and roughhousing is to choose quality, long-lasting cat furniture constructed specifically for the needs of cats.
Cat instincts are strong tendencies that result from natural selection that drive cat behavior. These natural compulsions trace back through the evolution of each animal to the survival techniques that they once used to stay alive.
Cats need some of their own furniture that they can enjoy because it has only their smell on it. But, not just any furniture. It needs to be cat furniture. Our homes don’t have to look like the Wild Kingdom to properly meet our feline family’s needs, but for them to thrive instead of just survive, our kitties need environmental enrichment's. They use these cat perches and climbing trees to get away from dangers that they perceive as predators. If a home has dogs and/or small children, the cats need to have lots of safe places, usually up high, for them to hang out and get away from the stressors - two or four-legged! Tall, sturdy cat trees are not a luxury; they are a necessity for a home with dogs or small children!
