How to make a free cat scratching box by reusing cardboard
Ms. Ditty’s motivation for scratching the floor and wall around her food after she eats differs from why she’s scratching the wall after using her litterbox. If there was a paper towel or other easy-to-move object near the food dish, she would probably cover her food with it, moving it by scratching and pulling at it with her claws. Often this behavior can be observed in our little domestic cats as well as wild cats, after eating. There may be a few crumbs left, or a substantial amount that hasn’t been eaten. Covering the food theoretically keeps other predators from finding it and ups the odds that there will be food available for later. Additionally, covering the uneaten food can help keep the cat safe, since the smell of food attracts predators and other hungry animals.
Of course cats sleep plenty, but they are smart and agile hunters who need every aspect of their cat-ness stimulated. That’s where cats toys, scratchers and kitty condos come in. But don’t spend money at the pet store on high dollar toys and scratching pads only to have your cats play with the box they came in–instead check out these DIY projects for some fun for your kitty cats.
