Teach Your Cat to Stop Scratching Furniture

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!

HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CAT BETTER

How to understand your cat? 🐱 How to make friends with your cat? 😍 Everyone knows that cats are the most illogical and unpredictable pets. Just try to work out what’s going through that furry little head!
It turns out that cats have their own language, and if you learn it there’s a chance you’ll understand them much better. We’ve put together all of the possible cat behaviors to help you find a common language with your pet (well, if it allows you to).

Also, we’ve prepared three essential tips that will help you communicate with cats better.

HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CAT
• How to make your cat trust you
Lowering your cat to the ground, make sure its paws have reached the floor. Your cat will trust you and know that it won’t tumble if you let it go.
• How to stroke your cat
If you sit on the floor with your legs crossed and look at your cat, it will interpret this as a friendly gesture and come up to you to let you stroke it.
Also, stretch your hand out in its direction. Your middle finger should be a little lower than the others. The cat will start rubbing its nose or face against your hand.
• How to make your cat appear
A cat may go and hide and only appear when it’s alone or hears a calm voice.

MAIN CAT GESTURES
• If a cat raises its nose up and throws its head, it’s saying, “I see you.” Cats often make this gesture to people walking past the window. Have you ever noticed it?
• A cat might press its ears against its head if it feels scared, worried, or wants to play. They also do this when they are sniffing something that’s interested them.
• When a cat sticks its tongue out slightly and licks itself, it’s worried or anxious.

CAT LANGUAGE
• Cats generally greet people or announce their presence with a short sound.
• Lengthy meowing indicates that your cat is very glad to see you. This occurs if you’re away from home for a long time.
• A medium-length meow might be a request for water or food.
• A long sound (a mix of purring and meowing) is a more insistent request or demand.
• A low meow is a complaint or indication of dissatisfaction. Also, it might mean your cat is ready to fight.
• A loud sound often indicates an urgent demand (for instance, you cat needs more food).
• A purring or vibrating sound indicates a desire for closer contact or attention. Cats purr for various reasons, but most often they do it when they are happy.

Now you know how to find a common language with any cat. By the way, are you a cat person or a dog person?
