    Default How to stop the cat from scratching??

    Hi there,
    Iím new here. I live in Toronto. We have 2 cats in our home, they are sweet and cute. They are very naughty but I canít resist them. I love to see their energy and donít want to spoil that. But the problem here is, we bought a new sofa furniture, it is elegant and beautiful, and our dear cat got interested in its beauty. She wants to be on the sofa. She needs to sleep on it. The everyday night she wakes up from her bed and sleeps on the sofa. Iím fine with everything she does on the sofa but scratching habit made me bit angry. It is a newly bought sofa and she scratched on it with an attitude ďnever minds even it is newĒ. That made me angry and I scolded her but she is on her never mind attitude. I know that she the loves the sofa and Iím ready to buy a small sofa for her. But I want to stop her scratching habit on our sofas. How can I train her? I donít think it is easy to make her stop those practices, so Iím searching for the unscratchable sofas. It would be a great help if someone mention any suggestions or advice.

    Reduce the friction rub is the possible answer - secondly may be the scent - thirdly is the frequent location (to understand what the cats is trying to achieve with the exercise) - show a good picture of its finishes and we can discuss further.

    Maybe buying a scratchpad will be helpful. Your cat can have a separate space to scratch.
