My Cat Tends To Scratch My Furniture. What Can I Do?
 

A cat scratches furniture to keep its claws in shape (not with the conscious effort to destroy things) and at the same time, leaving a trace of its scent through its paws.

De-clawing the cat is not the solution as it renders the cat defenceless and is most cruel. A scratching post is a simple solution that is hassle-free and can be easily bought from pet shops.

If the scratching problem persists, sticky double-sided tape can be temporarily applied to the sides of the object until the problem stops.
