Ahhh, a good stretch, a good scratch, fresh air and sunshine, the best after-breakfast treat for Kelly. She really showed that top step who was boss, and left enough pheromones behind to scare off a herd of neighborhood cats.
Something about dry wood under their paws has always inspired my cats to have a good scratch-fest. Mimi loves the deck railings, Cookie did too, and in the house my wooden ladder, one of the wooden braces on my old drawing table, and 2×4 lumber in the basement have all been christened by feline claws. Those old carpet-covered things? Eh…I took the carpet off and turned it around to expose the jute backing and that was a hit! but best of all they like the one I left as bare wood when I discovered the carpet had rubber backing. Yes, everyone should have a 4×4 in their dining room.
