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!
