Your RagaMuffin Kittens Need to Scratch

Scratching posts are recommended throughout the house for your RagaMuffin kittens. Your kittens have been trained to a scratching post, so will use them. I have different kinds of scratching posts - ­cardboard, sisal and sisal fabric. I would recommend that you have at least  one sisal type scratching post. If your kitten starts scratching on your furniture put double-sided tape where they are scratching until they "learn" that the spot is not an attractive place to scratch. One of the cardboard posts I use is an alpine sloped scratching post, with a little toy inside that the kitten can play with. The cardboard inserts are replaceable and can also be turned over for use. All my RagaMuffins use this cat scratcher, as well as the sisal rope and sisal carpet posts. The sisal post is a favorite of cats and we highly recommend that you have at least one sisal post for your RagaMuffin.

Kittens and cats love to have a place where they can lounge up off the ground and survey their surroundings.  Your kitten will be forever grateful if you have some type of "cat tree" available.  The best types have at least one round bed and have sisal rope or fabric on at least one of the posts, as kittens and cats love to scratch on sisal.  A good option is the Prestige Kitty Condo Cat Tree from Wayfair.   It has a very thick base so it is nice and sturdy.  See the photo to the right.  It is an economical choice without sacrificing quality. 


If you can afford to spend a little more, RagaMuffin kittens and cats love the higher trees.  Despite what many have said about RagaMuffin kittens and cats, they can climb and they do enjoy their cat trees!


The sisal post to the right can be purchased at Chewy.com.  I do not recommend scratching posts that are covered in carpet.  The sisal seems to be the favorite at Kaerik RagaMuffins (or so my Muffins tell me!)
