Here are the vote results from Cat Friendly Sofa survey: “Your cat scratches mainly…”

Here we are! After months of the survey and hundreds of responses received from many visitors of our www.catfriendlysofa.com website, we provide the vote results of the survey so we can find out together where exactly our cats focus their attention when scratching sofas and armchairs. It’s really interesting and encouraging to receive the confirmation of what we’ve always mentioned. That is, every cat is different in its scratching preferences and habits: 43% of cat owners say that their cats scratch mainly on sofa or armchair arms, 41% prefer backrests while 16 % – all the sofa. For different preferences different solutions are needed, that’s why Cat Friendly Sofa dedicates its time to listening to you and understanding your cat’s needs. Your satisfaction is our satisfaction. We are pleased to be at your disposal for further information.

An alternative for cats to not scratch couches and armchairs

Cat Friendly Sofa always underlines that hard surface is a must  for cat scratching and not just a bad habit as it seems to be. How funny would it be to teach our cats to sharpen their claws as women care about their nails. Well, to trim cat claws is a usual practice, but until now no cat attempts to do a real manicure like the one in the picture.

Cat’s claw herb

Cat’s claw! We are not going to talk about scratching problems now. This cat’s claw is a herb also known as Una de Gato which is very famous in Peruvian traditional medicine but still unrevealed by the scientific  world totally. It has come into research prominence since the 1970s after centuries of use by Peruvian Indians for a wide variety of ailments.

A traditional remedy for  digestive complaints and arthritis, to treat wounds, stomach problems, cancer, and more. It’s a boost to the immune system.  It is immune modulating which means that it responds to the needs of the immune system. If the immune system is over-active then cat’s claw will calm it down. If the immune system is under-active then it will ramp up the activity.

Now talking about cat’s claws and problems we face because of them, we can think about this life-giving vine which, if proved, can help people to fight diseases and be an adjunctive treatment for cancer and AIDS. Let’s hope that this herb will really be so useful and healing!

A poem about a cat

A poem about a cat

This nice poem was written by a 9 year-old french child on May 6, 1952. LE FIGARO wanted to publish it in its magazine. Very likely it was bought from the teacher of the child. It’s really very funny to see how a child sees cats.

The cat

“Cat is an animal that has two paws from the front,
Two others from the back,
Two paws from the left

And two others from the right.

The paws of the front help him to run,

The ones  of the back serve as brakes.
Cat has a tail that follows his body

And it finishes suddenly.

He has whiskers under his nose,
They are rigid as iron wires.

That’s  why he belongs to the family of felines.

Sometimes a cat wants to have kittens

And when he does, he becomes female.

Cats and Halloween, the mystical connection

Nowadays, besides being favorite pets cats are also one of the main characters in Halloween. Why cats? There are many notes explaining the mystical connection. One of them says that early witches believed cats to be sacred that they were once humans but for their evil deeds were turned into cats. So witches involved them in their worship of Halloween. In past, cats, particularly black cats, were thought to bring bad luck so they were burned to get rid of that evil. Fortunately, not all the countries and cultures are similar. In Egypt, for example, cats were sacred creatures and in Japan they are supposed to bring good luck. Anyway, no matter what colour your cat has, the important thing is that you love your pet and enjoy its company and that presently only cats’ images are used for funny or scaring Halloween costumes and decorations. As for the witches of pagan religion, there are rumours that they still exist among us and on Halloween night they exercise their pagan rituals. That’s why adopting a cat is not allowed in October. A precaution to keep these creatures away from becoming victims of such events.

Is there a cat breed that doesn’t scratch?

Generally, the fact that your cat belongs to a specific breed means it shares anatomic and behavioral features with the other cats of the same breed. The Ragdoll, for example, has the reputation as an easy-going and quiet cat, while the Devon Rex cannot stay too long alone without the company of its owner. Some study reports that the scratching attitude changes passing from a breed to another one. Well, Cat Friendly Sofa prepared for you this “Naughty-Nice List”, but mind that any cat is unique and special for its habits and attention it dedicates us and… our couch arms as well! Cat Scratching attitude

Why to quit on the idea of declawing

A confusing and hot topic for cat lovers is whether to declaw their beloved cat or not. A temptation that appears easy, quick and useful for YOU but not for the cat. To have a clear idea what declawing is let’s explain it on you. Look at your fingers. Look well. Now imagine the small bone that your fingernail covers cut. How does it feel? Not pretty well, right? So, your cat feels the same but doesn’t have a voice to express itself. Declawing is one of man’s aggressive influence on cats to make everything perfect for him. Want a cat? Have it! Want a cat on a sofa avoiding any further problems? Have it all… But try to think a little about your kitty that you love so much. There are so many ways to avoid scratched and destroyed soft furnitures. Some cats feel comfortable with a scratching post and some are not satisfied with it. Cat Friendly Sofa offers cat friendly cover for sofa/armchair arms and backrests that works perfectly with cats. One of the alternative solutions to declawing, if not the best!
