Cat scratchers

I buy my Sophie something called a cat kit. It is a box that you open up and put on the floor. One side she can lay on and other she loves to scratch. I once bought her one of those I call houses that have 2 floors and no windows and she climbs on it and lays there and the legs are scratchers. She did not like it at all. It took up room so had to sell it. She does not always like the gifts I get for her.

Maybe next time you buy what you think Sophie will like. I mean it is not what you like but what she would like. My wife used to buy expensive toys but our dogs prefer the cheap ones that emit a sound when the dog bites it.

@Alexandoy Thanks Alex and now I know what scratcher she likes and she likes very simple toys that light up.

@Alexandoy Thanks Alex. It is not a toy. It is a means to how she scratches.

I understand. Cats can be so finicky in their likes and dislikes.

@Hannihar Sometimes we waste so much money on things we hope they would like, but don't.

It seems that finding a nice gift for a cat is no easy task.

@kanuck1 I found through trial and error what she likes. So, I try to get what she likes now.I had to learn the hard way.

@CarolDM I am curious why some cats love the two-story one and others like something else. I really thought my Sophie would love the two-story one, but, she did not. I guess also in animals not all like the same thing.

I understand. Cats and dogs like what they like and not always what you get them.

A cat scratch post is a great idea. Cats scratch to signal it's their territory, so having a cat scratch kit enables them to do their thing without ruining your furniture. Cats also scratch to maintain their nails. Kind of like going to a nail salon

Wow that cat is very choosy, the scratcher must have been expensive.

@Letranknight2015 I would not call her choosy. I would just say she did not like it. I sold it to someone that liked it. It was expensive, but, if she does not like something then I have to rethink what not to get her.

I wonder how it looks. I would love to buy my Taka and Kawa too.

Cats are funny that way. If they do not like something they will not use it.

@jstory07 I look at it is that Sophie is telling me what she does not like and not to get anything like it again. I can understand that.

Some pets can be very picky when it comes to their toys. So glad Sophie likes the box that she can scratch.

@Corbin5 I would say she got used to that one so maybe that is why she prefers it to the two-story one I got her.

Cats can be very picky but I have to admit that my dog Roscoe does like some toys more than others.

@BelleStarr Belle, that could be with all animals. Some toys they like and others not.

Cats can be very fussy sometimes. They certainly know what they like and don't like.

@JudyEv You are right they can be fussy, but, so can people be also. I think it is best to buy what I know she likes, after all it is for her and not me from now on.

I feel you need to take your cat Sophie along while you buy play things for her. I think cats love to play with things that move or swing . You can check out YouTube videos on cat toys and then decide what to buy.

@jayanth_77 Thanks Jay. I cannot take her with me. She would have to ride in a carrier and do not want to do that to her. I know what she likes now and will only buy simple things she likes.

@AmbiePam Thanks, but, I needed to learn to buy her what she likes and what she does not like. She likes simple things and I believe that is very important to know.
