It looks a bit like a magnet with its U-shaped arch. That’s an interesting observation because this nifty device can indeed become a cat magnet in your home. Cats love rubbing against things. It’s a form of territorial marking, as they leave pheromones – scent residue that we’re unable to smell – on items they rub against. Judging by the look on our cat’s faces, it also just feels nice.
This cat grooming arch provides Kitty with this pleasant experience but also grooms her coat at the same time. This means less cat hair elsewhere in your home.
The arch comes with a bag of catnip you can use to make it even more attractive. I highly doubt it’s necessary though – I think your cat is going to appreciate it for what it is, with or without the catnip!
