M is for Manicure

Kitties love scratching, or as I like to call it, getting a manicures. They also can't really help themselves from getting one. For a cat, getting a manicure is instinctual and healthy. It improves the condition of their "nails" (claws), helps them stretch (kitties are the best at yoga), and helps them mark their territory.

Unfortunately, cats love to scratch furniture. I've given up on keeping them away from it, so I basically just cover anything they like to scratch until I have guests.

I also provide them with plenty of scratching posts. In fact, I have an old partial kitty tree (I used pieces of it for something else) which I never threw out because they loved scratching it so much. It's basically just sitting outside continuing to fall apart, and they still love it, as you can see in the gif below:
