Does your cat scratch on everything?

Your cat tends to scratch on items around your home. Why does she do this and how can you teach her not to?

Your pet takes a lot of time each day to seek out and scratch on different areas of your home. This behavior is necessary as it keeps her claws from becoming overgrown. This means that you should try diverting her scratching to approved areas instead of trying to eliminate it entirely. Take the time to find a scratching post or mat that you think your pet will like and place it near the areas she tends to scratch now. She may still scratch in her favorite places, but you can move her over to the new spots when this happens so she will understand what they are for and how to utilize them. Your Fox Chapel, PA vet clinic can offer additional advice.
