A few Smart Tips from our Smart Cat team:

Understanding Why Cats Have and Need Claws

A cat needs to scratch on a surface so they can tone their nails and exercise their bodies. Providing them with a good scratching post designed to maximize your cat’s scratching pleasure and giving them an appealing target for territorial marking, exercise, and natural cat exuberance is very important.

The claws also allow the cat to grasp and hold objects as well as establish footing for walking, running, springing, climbing and stretching. By regularly trimming your cat’s nails and offering a suitable scratching target, you are providing a natural outlet for a normal, happy and healthy behavior and you will be rewarded with a satisfied and confident companion.

Play Therapy

This is an excellent way to get some natural Kitty aggression, stalking, pouncing and attacking directed into proper play.  Also another important bonding experience with your furry friend.  This will teach them to play in an appropriate manner.

We can take the cat out of the jungle, but we can’t take the jungle out of the cat. There is a little tiger in every house cat, a solitary predator that needs to exercise its hunting skills on a regular basis. We may have confined this little tiger within four walls, provided them with the finest of feline foods, but we can’t ignore their basic need to do that for which it was so perfectly designed – to HUNT. Fortunately, it is not always necessary for the prey to be alive, but it must move.

Owners are often frightened by the playfully aggressiveness in cats and kittens because they look quite intense when they play. They silently ambush feet and ankles as they pass by surprising, upsetting, and sometimes, even hurting a family member. In some cases, the cat owners have not intentionally trained their cat to be a feline terrorist by playing with it as a kitten with their hands or feet. The solution is to direct the cat’s playful, predatory, energies toward toys instead of moving hands or feet.

 The Benefits of Play

While playing with the owner the cat exercises the following hunting skills or behaviors:

stalking. chasing, pouncing, batting, catching, throwing, fishing and communication



A single pair of cats and their offspring can produce as many as 420,000 cats in just seven years.

That’s the equivalent of 60,000 cats per year.
