Collection Welcome  




It's normal for cats to scratch objects in their environment for many reasons: To remove the dead outer layer of their claws. To mark their territory by leaving both a visual mark and a scent – they have scent glands on their paws.

Cats also scratch to keep their claws sharp, exercise and stretch their muscles. If you fail to provide an acceptable area to scratch then your carpets, furniture and wallpaper may get damaged.

Flat Cat Scratch

Flat cat scratchers are ideal for moving to different areas around the house when kitty attacks soft furnishings they shouldn’t, Flat Cat Scratch also works well for cats that enjoy horizontal scratching rather than vertical, elderly or reduced mobility cats.


Cats prefer to sleep and hang out in places with good vantage points. It comes from their instinct to protect their themselves, and a high position for sleeping or resting gives them an aerial advantage for spotting any potential dangers around them.
