Scratching is a natural need for all cats. When scratching, cats mark their territory. This territory marking is both visible (the scratching lines) and invisible! Indeed, cats leave “territory messages” coming from their paws, that only other cats can perceive.

In case of discomfort, cats will scratch more, and this can become an issue if this happens on your walls, doors or furniture!
In many cases, scratching in your home is in fact your cat’s way of expressing discomfort.
In particular if:
- your cat is scratching in many areas in the house (on furniture, sofa, chairs...)
- your cat is scratching near windows and doors
- you have 2 or more cats
- your cat has many “cat neighbours” (other cats living close to your home)
- you had recent changes in your home (like new furniture or moving furniture around).
Using FELISCRATCH by FELIWAY will help redirect your cat to an appropriate location: a scratching post! For further comfort, use FELIWAY CLASSIC to create a loving and reassuring atmosphere in your home.
Never spray FELIWAY CLASSIC on the cat scratching post as it would prevent the cat from using it!
