Why Cats Need Their Claws

Cats do write. They don’t communicate with a pen and paper or by using a computer keyboard. Instead, their prose is cat scratch—literally. They scratch to express their excitement and pleasure. They scratch to leave messages, both visual and aromatic. (A cat’s paws have scent glands that leave smell-o-grams; we can’t read them, but other cats can.)

Cats also scratch, not to sharpen their nails but to remove the worn-out sheaths from their claws. You see the results as little crescent-moon shaped bits around scratching areas. Scratching is good exercise, too.

Scratching is normal behavior for cats. Asking a cat never to scratch is asking a cat not to act like a cat.
