Scratching posts are one of the most common items in every cat household and for good reason; they provide a bit of verticality and a challenge to your cat, while simultaneously adding an opportunity to sleep on top and to sharpen the nails by scratching sisal rope.

Finding the right scratching post for you has not become easier since online shopping started. There are thousands of models available, from huge trees designed for multiple cats to small and short ones designed for small apartments and studios.
