CRIJO Kitten Post and Cat Post are a smart investment in the health of your cat. Because scratching is an important, natural behavior for cats, a scratching post is as essential to the indoor cat as their litter box or food and water bowls. A proper scratching post allows cats to remove the outer sheath covering their claws and to stretch their spines. CRIJO cat posts with heights of 26” (Kitten Post) and 32” (Cat Post) and a square base gives cats unrivaled opportunities to do both, whether they prefer vertical or horizontal scratching. Both come with attractive solid oak trim which sets CRIJO posts apart from the rest. A scratching post should be placed where your cat spends their time, which will generally be in the room in which you spend your time.
