To be fair to the current paid subscribers, to be entitled entry you would need to subscribe to the magazine.  By subscribing to The Cat you will not only have access to many great competitions, but also the latest news, views and information about your cherished pet.  More importantly, you would be helping to support the affiliated charity, the Cats Protection, which cares for unwanted cats.

To finish, the title of the feature – Claw care – refers to the cat’s innate need to scratch.  Dougherty (2014) concludes that the act of scratching: helps maintain your cat’s nails for grooming, protection and keeping healthy; is part of a routine to stretch and exercise your cat’s muscles, and; may be used by your cat as a means of marking territory.
