I spent the money on a scratching post for my cat and he still prefers the sofa: owners advise us on this

Sofas, and really any upholstered furniture in a home, have a declared public enemy: cats. In general, these cats tend to scratch them like form of marking, to file your nails or as an effect of stress, anxiety or boredom. So the solution will be greatly influenced by the cause. That is why, although any owner knows the theory: offer them a scratching post instead. The practice (getting them to use it) is another story.

“My cat who uses her scratching post to the fullest from the first day but, since her brother died a few months ago, she is combining the scratching post with the sofa. The side has destroyed it in a matter of days, so we are going to buy ipso facto a scratching mat to patch the corner. In the end it will even be beautiful and everything.”

“He has given me 99% given up, he uses everything except the scraper and I have bought several (to hang on the wall, carpet type, of which they are vertical with base…). The 1% is because I am still looking at options and buying things from him from time to time. The good thing is that the sofa leaves him very calm, but he sharpens his nails on a thread rug that I have already given up on”.

What I have learned from my more than 10 years of experience with cats is that they will do what they want. What do you like the scraper? They will scratch there. Not? Goodbye sofa. In my case, I have two cats that scratch on the scratching post and one that scratches exclusively on the sofa and in my work bag. There’s no way I won’t.”

Carlos

“I have four cats and several scratchers scattered around the house. Not all succeed the same and each animal is different, but, in general, I have come to two conclusions. The first is that the best thing is buy large scratching posts with platforms so they can climb on them and play on them. It seems that not but, between going up and down, they use them. The second thing is the location. It works for us to put them near the windows, from where they can look outside and sunbathe. Another thing that works very well is the Feliway and assuming that no one saves you from having your sofa messed up.”
