Imperial Cat - Cute as a Bug Scratchers - Caterpillar
The Imperial Cat Scratch 'n Shapes Caterpillar is the ideal cat scratcher - made from rough, durable corrugated cardboard, the Imperial Cat Scratch 'n Shapes Caterpillar mimics the feel of real tree bark, so it feels natural to kitty's claws and paws. The Imperial Cat Scratch 'n Shapes Caterpillar is designed to rip and tear under your kitty's claws, providing for great visual marking - a main reason your cat scratches in the first place. You think it looks torn up and ugly, but your cat thinks it looks like home! Contrary to popular belief, your cat doesn't scratch to "sharpen" his claws, but rather to remove the outer layer of nail which sheds naturally every few weeks. And the corrugated cardboard is a unique surface in your home - it feels different than your carpet or sofa - so it's easier to train your cat to use the Imperial Cat Scratch 'n Shapes Caterpillar instead of your furniture. Plus, it just feels good to your kitty to stretch out and scratch away! Cats may also like to sleep and play on the Imperial Cat Scratch n' Shapes Caterpillar, and that's okay - The Imperial Cat Scratch n' Shapes Caterpillar is made with non-toxic paper, ink and glue, so it's purrfectly safe for cats and kittens. In fact, every Imperial Cat Scratch 'n Shape Caterpillar comes with a bag of Imperial Cat 100% Organic Catnip - sprinkle on a little or sprinkle on a lot for an aroma that will attract your cat like a magnet and get the fun started!
- Helps protect your furniture from destructive cat scratching
- Provides a place for kitty to scratch, play and sleep
- Keeps cats' claws and muscles healthy and strong
Remove packaging. Do not remove the protective paper from the bottom of the scratcher. Place Scratch 'n Shape on the floor near your cat's favorite spot or where your cat is scratching. Apply Imperial Cat Certified Organic Catnip to the top surface of the scratcher above the protective bottom paper. Use your hand to gently rub the catnip into the scratcher if desired. Allow your cat to discover the Scratch 'n Shape - you may place your cat on the Scratch 'n Shape, but do not try to force your cat to use it, as this may scare your cat. It may take several days for your cat to become accustomed to a new object. Use training methods such as praise and petting to encourage your cat to use the Scratch n' Shape and not your furniture.
