There is no definitive evidence that male cats do more scratching than female cats.
Scratching is primarily driven by a cat’s instinct to mark territory, exercise muscles, and maintain healthy claws. Scratching is a natural behavior for both male and female cats.
However, due to factors such as personality, environment, and individual preference, some cats may have different scratching habits. To satisfy cats’ scratching needs and prevent damage to furniture, it’s important to provide appropriate scratching posts or surfaces.
Regular nail trimming, offering attractive toys and indoor activities can also help control scratching behavior.
