DIY Cardboard Cat Scratcher You Can Make Right Now
If there's anything cat owners can agree upon, it's this: cats scratch. Whether they scratch the couch, a carefully placed scratching pad, cardboard scratcher, or you, heaven forbid, the act of casual scratching is a common practice amongst your favorite felines.
You can use old cardboard for this craft!
What really sucks about this habit is that cats can sometimes turn their attention, and their claws, to furniture. And, while scratching pads aren't the most expensive thing to purchase, dropping 15$-20$ on a scratching post can be an unwelcome additional cost, especially when you likely have the perfect materials laying around to DIY the perfect cardboard scratching pad. (And you know we love our DIY hobbies and crafts!)
The best part about this? You can use old cardboard for this craft. Which is perfect for all those Amazon Prime orders you've been making.
Eco-friendly and an easy way to repurpose any old cardboard you have laying around, here's how to make the best cardboard cat scratcher—from scratch!
