Nip and Tuck

This afternoon I decided to ‘enhance’ the cardboard scratcher and empty an old store of catnip into it to vanish into the cracks.  Presumably this would make it more attractive to the cats going forward.

Julie was pretty interested, but like often happens Gus pulled rank and dived in first.  I had given him his own little pile but he ignored that for the scratcher.  Julie is a good sport and left him to it.

He doesn’t seem to get the ‘use your claws’ part of the scratcher, using his head instead.

Eventually he gave the others a turn.  I haven’t seen much additional scratching, but I have seen both Julius and Calla sitting in the scratcher like a chicken hatching an egg, so at least it giving some entertainment value for everyone.
