Is My Cat Just Being A Knob?

When I was adopting Moo, the biggest worry I had was that he would scratch everything.

I picked him up from the vets he was living with and brought him home to live with me.  I opened his carrier, he walked out, walked behind the sofa and the first thing he did was get his claws out and run them down the back of it.

I crapped myself.  I pictured a cat’s lifetime of damaged furniture and my nice wooden staircase getting destroyed.  I managed to tempting to his scratching post and we’d been living… Hmm, let’s say cohabiting, fairly happily since.

Moo Cat had been using a grass scratching post for most of his time living with me.  They were beginning to annoy me though because he’d destroy one every couple of weeks.  Most of them come in two halves with a base and Moo would only ever use the top half.  This means I’m left with lots of bottom halves and fluffy wooden circles when I need to buy new ones and the wastage as much as the expense was getting annoying.

The last one I bought was, and indeed still is, massive.  It’s also still in one piece and has lasted absolutely ages, but that’s because dear Moo won’t use it.  It isn’t a grass scratching post, this one is rope.  Instead, Moo seems to be making use of one of my doors, but he only does it in the morning when he wants his breakfast and I’m not getting up.

All the blurb on line says that a cat scratches stuff to remove the worn outer, uncomfortable claw and expose the new sharp layer underneath.

This may be right, but I’ve never seen Moo scratch his rear claws on anything.  Have you ever seen a cat scratch their rear claws? No, you haven’t.

This, and the fact that Moo won’t touch the rope scratching post, makes me think that he’s just being a bit of a knob when it comes to scratching my door.

You make things worth it
So good so far
Stay a little longer cause you can’t
You cant leave me out
But you drove away from me again,
Hit the road surrounded by your friends,
And here’s me alone and cursing you.
Here’s me knowing you will
FADE away if my plan works right this time
Fade away never mind just what we find.

I always want this
Its just so right
We’ve gotta get on with it,
Cause you won’t believe this night
But you drove away from me again,
Here’s me surrounded by your friends
There’s you alone and terrified,
There’s you hoping that I

Fade away if my plan works right this time
Fade away never mind just what we find
Fade away if my plan works right this time
Fade away never mind just what we find

Go and find yourself but don’t look back at me
Just take it it easy as I sit here and know you will

Fade away if my plan works right this time
Fade away never mind just what we find

Fade away if my plan works right this time
Fade away never mind just what we find
