Simple Management to Prevent Furniture Damage
Simple management can help as well, and can include redirecting your cat to his or her scratching posts, keeping doors to areas with furniture closed, or covering your furniture to prevent damage. A cat who is stressed or territorial may cause more scratching damage, so if you have a home with multiple cats, changing the dynamics between them and the way they interact with each other can change your cat’s scratching behavior. Your primary goal should be to make your cat happy with the scratching environment he or she needs. When you know how to get a cat to stop scratching furniture, you will enjoy the results of a happy, harmonious, and shredded-furniture-free home.
