I am officially part of an elite club known as the "Crazy Cat Ladies". Okay, so I'm totally sane, do not have a shopping cart that I roll down the road full of random knick-knacks, and I don't live alone and yell at passerby children. But I do have 4 cats. So that counts, right?
Anyway, my kitties are Noodles, Pringles, Truffles and Havarti. Yes, they all have cutesy food names. We're weird like that. My cats are spoiled rotten, and are truly like my babies. They're so much fun to watch, and do really silly things like hide in boxes and climb up brick walls.
There is one thing they do, however, that drives me absolutely bonkers. They scratch. We have no shortage of scratching posts and cat trees, but for some reason, they seem to like scratching on our carpet, too. Lucky for me, we only have 1 room that is carpeted. The rest of the house is hardwood and vinyl flooring. My cats seem to always choose to scratch right near a doorway. Why? I have no idea. But cats do lots of things that are beyond understanding.
Some people see declawing their cats as a solution to scratching. I don't agree with this practice at all, since it is actually extremely painful for the cat. Not to mention, if a kitty gets outdoors, they would be defenseless against wildlife and feral colonies. Plus, the fact that my kitties have claws means that they kill mice when they get into my house. And I am terrified of mice.
Thankfully, there is a great product that helps eliminate problem carpet scratching. The CarPET Scratch Stopper is designed to fit into standard doorways, and makes it impossible for kitties to scratch and do damage to carpets.
The CarPET Scratch Stopper is a thick, plastic mat that fits into the doorway areas in your home. It has little "nubs" that help keep it in place perfectly. We have ours in between our family room and dining room. We also have a baby gate here to keep our little humans from wandering through the house.
Overall, the CarPET Scratch Stopper has worked wonders in our home. The kitties aren't able to scratch the carpets anymore, at least not in their preferred spot, so they have taken to using their many scratching posts instead. (Hooray!)
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with feline friends in their home. It's a wonderful alternative to declawing, and will help keep your carpet in one piece. Since it's clear, it doesn't appear tacky or ugly, and fits in well with any decor. This comes in a few different sizes, too, so there's bound to be one to suit your needs.
