How to trn a cat not to scratch furniture?
I was searching the internet the other day for some cat trning tips. I was looking for something specific because I was really frustrated by my cat constantly clawing on my wood floors. She was getting worse and worse and my husband and I were trying to find a way to stop her from doing it. I found some tips here on the internet, but none of them seemed to work. It took me awhile, but I think I finally figured out a way to stop her. It is not a perfect solution, but it is a great start.
I hope it helps you!
How to trn a cat not to scratch furniture:
1. When you first bring your new cat home, make sure you give her a scratchy toy to play with. Your cat needs something to chase around that she can claw at, so that she won’t have anything else to scratch. Once she is accustomed to it, then take it away.
2. You’re gonna need to stop using plastic bags to pick up litter. Plastic bags are really a pn in the neck. They are not really a big deal in a normal home, but when your cat gets really attached to them, it can really be a problem. I’m going to share with you a little bit about how to trn your cat to do her business in the litter box, but you can also use this method for other things as well.
3. Put a plastic bag inside a large garbage bag.
4. Cut the plastic bag open so that there are still small gaps.
5. Lay the plastic bag on the floor.
6. Now lay the large garbage bag down on top of the plastic bag.
7. Pull the edges of the garbage bag together.
8. Now tie it up tightly.
9. Keep the garbage bag inside the plastic bag and keep doing this over and over until the cat is comfortable enough with the plastic bag.
10. Once she gets the hang of it, you can take it away. You may want to keep the plastic bag out for a while to remind her, but if you don’t, she’s going to forget.
11. After a while, you should start noticing that she will go to the box whenever she wants to. She should start using it more frequently to do her business.

I hope this helps. I am not very good with cats, so I don’t have any experience with this stuff. I’m just sharing what I found. I’d love to hear how it goes with your cat. I would love for you to leave me a comment and let me know how it goes.
My cat will do this as well if you put down a towel and get a cat mat. That way, when she wants to scratch, she can’t. Also, I have found if you put a cat tree or chr in the kitchen, she won’t be able to scratch anything unless you put something down that she can claw on. I have a dog who can’t stand having cat trees or chrs in the house, but if I just put a regular old chr, she still doesn’t get near it.
I’ve tried all the different techniques mentioned above, and most of them work. I am using one technique that I’ve not seen on this site.
I try to find something my cat can’t scratch. If I’m not home, I’ll take her with me. I leave the door to the bathroom open, so she has to go outside. There’s nothing more she can scratch at than the inside of the door. So she’s really had to get used to going outside.
We do the ‘plastic bag method’ and I’ve found it very effective. In fact, when I’ve taken her out, she’s started going outside immediately. I just keep the plastic bag in the bathroom, though, so I don’t have to worry about losing it.
I have trned my cat to use a litterbox inside my kitchen. This worked out really well for me because my cat didn’t know where to go to do her business.
I had a problem with my cat using my bathroom and my sink as a litterbox. I bought a big piece of carpet and cut it into a rectangular shape and then sewed the edges shut. I put the carpet in the bathroom and covered the rest of my bathroom floor with the carpet.
My cat now does her business on that carpet. She can scratch the carpet all she wants and I can even pick her up off of it without her getting scared. If she gets to far out, I just pick her up and she goes back into her box.
Thank you, I think I have a solution that has worked out great for me. But the only thing is I have not been able to get this carpet down from the wall. So it is now hanging down my wall by a cord. If anyone has any ideas on how to get this off the wall I would appreciate it. It really isn’t a big deal but I just would love a solution.
I have a problem with my cat and the door. She goes in, she scratches and the next thing you know, she’s back in the same spot, scratch
