How to Prevent Your Cat from Scratching Furniture

Does your cat have the bad habit of using your furniture, walls, curtains or other areas of your home as its personal scratching post? If so, here are a few ways to prevent your cat from continuing this behavior. First, it’s important to understand why your cat is doing this. Your cat may be trying to sharpen his nails (hence the reason for scratching wood and hard surfaces). He may also need his nails trimmed. Staying up to date on nail trimming can help. Your cat may be bored. If he needs something to do or something to play with he may resort to scratching things. Get your cat a scratching post and toys to preoccupy him. Your cat may also be trying to tell you he’s thirsty, hungry or sick. Check his food and water to ensure he’s eating and drinking. Look for signs of illness. You can also consult with your Columbia, MD veterinary clinic. More details here:
