How to prevent unwanted furniture scratching
Cats scratch objects for a number of reasons.
Firstly, they are marking their territory.
You may notice your cat scratches the furniture or carpet more when visitors are at your home or they notice a cat in your yard. Cats have scent glands in the pads of their feet. Every time they scratch the furniture it leaves a smell, undetectable to the human nose, that lets other animals know they have been there. The physical scratch marks also let other animals know the cat has been there.
Cats also need to maintain their nails.
Contrary to popular belief, cats are not sharpening their claws when they scratch – the scratching helps to break away any dead nail that may be loose. Every four to six weeks, your cat’s nails will shed. The dead part of the nail will fall away and the new nail will be underneath. Sometimes the dead nail needs help to come away from the new nail, so your cat will scratch to do this.
How can I stop my cat scratching the furniture?
Your cat needs somewhere to scratch! Provide your cat with a few scratching posts and if you notice your cat going to scratch the furniture, pick up the cat and place them at the scratch post. Be consistent and place them at the scratch post every time you notice them scratch the furniture or carpet. If possible, have a number of scratch posts around the house; this will give your cat a few options other than your furniture. Try spraying some aerosol catnip on the scratch post to attract your cat to it. Cats enjoy tall scratch posts that allow them to stretch upwards; the post should be sturdy so the cat can put pressure on it without unbalancing the post.
Be patient with your cat: they are displaying a natural and necessary behaviour.
