The back of the hammock is covered in sisal rope, making it a great scratching post and helping to redirect your cats natural need to scratch things onto something other than your sofa, while the hammock is lined with a soft fluffy plush material so your cat can be cosy at a height!
Scratching is natural for cats, and they would be scratching in the wild, it helps to keep their claws clean and sharp, similar to how humans file their nails. It is important to provide your cat with items that are meant to be scratched in order to keep them away from more valuable items in your home.
Climbing also comes natural to cats, and often cats feel more comfortable watching the world from a height. That is why climbing trees and other climbing aids like this cave will help give your cat the space your cat needs. There are also matching steps that you can wall mount so your cat can climb up to the hammock. Try adding multiple steps and ledges along an empty wall so that your cat can explore at a height like they would in trees in the wild. Having a safe space at a height can also help reduce anxiety in your cat when they are around other pets or visitors. Providing your cat with safe items to jump onto can also help keep your cat from jumping onto unsafe furniture.
Your cat may me nervous of the step and cave at first, be sure to give plenty of encouragement and prise when they try the step. If your car is uninterested in the step, try adding some cat nip or their favourite toy or treat onto the step to get them to jump onto it.
