When it comes to scratching surfaces, we Bengal cats look for variety. Sometimes we go for tall scratching posts—reaching as high as we can, stretching our bodies into full length. While other times, we prefer to stay low and scratch on flat or angled surfaces. One thing’s for sure though, no matter what kind of scratcher we’re talking about, quality should always be the top priority. We Bengal Cats LOVE cat trees. Our ancestors slept in trees and we love to be tall and above it all! Whether on a tree or a cardboard scratcher, our Bengal claws need to be regularly sharpened! Providing us with a place to do our our Paw-de-cure helps us to decide against using your couch or carpet instead!
