Paws and Claws / Right or Left?

It is not generally known that just as people are either right-handed or left-handed, cats are either right-pawed or left-pawed. Out of every 100 cats approximately 40 are left-pawed, 20 are right-pawed, and 40 are ambidextrous. These findings contrast strikingly with the human situation where only 10 individuals are left-handed for every 90 who are right-handed.

Thank you for learning the importance of your cat’s claws!  A cat needs to scratch on a surface so they can tone their nails and exercise their bodies.  Providing them with a good scratching post designed to maximize your cat’s scratching pleasure and giving them an appealing target for territorial marking, exercise, and natural cat exuberance is very important.
