cat scratch post

Try to train your cats to scratch appropriately
Make your cats interest in new scratching posts by sprinkling or rubbing catnip on it, or by dangling a toy around for him to grab. Don't forget to reward him for using it. Tell him what a good boy he is-he understands your tone of voice and the affectionate rub on his head. You can even reward him with treats. When he starts to scratch on the sofa (or chair or bed), you need to let him know that this is not allowed. Using your voice to your cat. When seeing (or hearing) inappropriate scratching, using a loud, low, booming voice "CLAWS!". This generally gets a startle response, which interrupts the scratching. Most cats get the message pretty quickly.
