Have you decided to bring a playful kitten into the house? Then you should take care of its contents. A special place in the life of a pet is occupied by the necessities. Today we will talk about the scraper. So it is arranged by nature that cats feel the need to sharpen their sharp claws, and it will be better if they get a nail catcher in time, which you can not only buy at the pet store, but also make it yourself. This is the only way you can protect your furniture, wallpaper or other items of furniture that are valuable to you.

Kogtetochek Types

Today, stores offer a variety of kogtetochki for pets:
  • horizontal or vertical;
  • angular;
  • one-component or prefabricated.
These can be simple planks with a coating of fabric, carpet or ordinary cardboard. In form, they can resemble pillars wrapped in rope. If space permits, you can purchase a multi-level structure that allows you to recreate the natural environment.

Make a scratching pin yourself

What we need:
  • 3 thin, 5 cm in diameter and a height of 1.5 m, the trunk of a young felling;
  • sleigh rail, from which we will cut 3 crossbars,50 cm long each;
  • Screws;
  • Drill;
  • Wrenches;
  • board size 20 x 40 cm for the couch;
  • a piece of foam rubber of the same size
  • tight cloth
  • furniture gun with brackets.


Prepare the material. Trunks clear of branches and saw off the desired length. Our design suggests that birch trunks are 20 cm shorter than an aspen tree trunk. We did this so that the kitten, lying on a shelf, could sharpen its claws. We will make lower crossbars from the lath to make the construction stable.
Do it Yourself
Prepare screws of different lengths: from 2 to 7 cm.
Do it Yourself
Drill a hole for a screw in the rail at a distance of 2 cm from its edge. This must be done so that the wood is not sold out. Using a screwdriver, we drive a screw through a hole in the rail into the birch trunk at a distance of 10-15 cm from the edge.
