Training your cat to use the cat scratching post is a necessary and important step when you want to teach your cat to stop scratching furniture. But before debunking why do cats scratch furniture, it’s important to first get these cat behaviors explained. Scratching is instinctive cat behavior that helps a cat spread his or her scent. Scratching is also an important way of marking territory, which makes cats feel secure. But when your cat decides to scratch your new sofa or a piece of valuable furniture, this cat behavior becomes a problem.
One of the best solutions—next to pulling out the cat nail clipper—is to redirect her four paws to a second cat home: the scratching post. We know each and every cat personality is different. So if your cat likes to scratch furniture, consider wrapping the part she likes to scratch in surfaces that are less appealing. Cat tips and research suggest cats hate the feel of sticky surfaces so doing so should teach your cat to stop scratching furniture. In the meantime, attract her to the scratching post. Each time she makes a stop to her second cat home, the cat scratcher post, reward her with play time or a treat. Get hands-on by rubbing her paws on it or rub some catnip into the scratching post to draw her attention to it.
Getting your cat to use her cat scratcher post is much easier when you have take the time to use proper cat communication. Ready to put these tips about cats into action? Pounce on that ‘play’ button to see how you can teach your cat to stop scratching furniture today!
