Before I was a cat owner I had no idea there’s an actual reason that cats scratch at posts. I thought they just liked to do it, but it was a pretty cool finding all the claw fragments when I inspected around their scratching post. Whenever I’m doing my morning stretches on my carpet I multitask by trying to clean up the little fuzzies that collect and often find whiskers and other claw fragments.

For now I’m saving them but I realized since they’re only 15 months old that if I keep this up then I could eventually have a witch’s container’s worth of cat claw and whisker fragments. The question is, where’s the threshold where it becomes creepy or weird?
