Repairing a Gash in a Hardwood Floor

One of my cats has badly scratched the wood floor in my office. He has scratched in the same spot many, many times and has actually made a gash in the floor. I am renting this house so I need to repair it. I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions on how I can repair the wood floor, other than replacing the board. It is real wood and the floors were refinished right when we moved in. I would like the floor to look flawless if possible. Any suggestions will help (i.e. wood kits, etc.?). Thanks!

You can buy wood sticks, they look something like crayons and come in almost any wood tone color. Depending on the size of the gash it might take more than one of them. I think you will find these in paint department of most stores.
