‘Claw counseling’ is helping cat parents understand their cat’s natural behavior and scratching preferences. Scratching is considered to be both natural and necessary for the mental health of our feline friends and is never done with any mean spirited intentions.

The concept of a world that contains both ‘okay’ and ‘not okay’ scratching surfaces simply does not exist for the cat, as scratching to them is simply a form of communication, mental stimulation and is required for their nail health.

It is very important for us to understand that scratching is vital for our furry friends and to make sure that we provide them with several scratching options to choose from. The staff here at Banded Peak would love to sit down and discuss ‘claw counseling’ with you at any time, so please feel free to give us a call!
