I have two indoor kitties. They do love to scratch. This is an economical way to provide them a place to scratch. It is a natural instinct for cats and I do not want to declaw them. The prices in the Kmart pet center are really great so I try to shop for many of my pet needs within the pet center. It was great this year because I gave one of my grandsons a kitten and I could get him all of his kitty supplies at Kmart and stay in our budget for his Christmas present.
