Cats are generally low-maintenance animals that offer a soft and hairy company. However, not all parts of owning a cat or kitten are easy. As with any pet, you take on many responsibilities when you adopt them. These include getting them to exercise, feed them and brush them. You also need to work with them on any behavioral problems they have. You need to have patience and willpower, because there is no perfect pet.

One of the most destructive and irritating behaviors that a cat can have is when it uses its sharp little claws to scratch your furniture. Why is your cat scratching your sofa and how do you stop this negative behavior?

This article covers the reasons why cats scratch themselves, your cat’s claw, the methods you can use to control the behavior and the steps to go from scratching benches to scratching posts.distributor chat

Behavior of cats and crabs

The best way to deal with negative behaviors in a pet is to understand why he is doing it. You will be redirecting the focus or changing the mode, it is usually a much faster process.

Cats are natural crabs. It is essential to understand that you are not trying to train their scratching instincts, you just want to divert their attention from the furniture.
Bengal cat

In nature, they have to scratch themselves to get a natural manicure, remove the dead layer from their claws and keep them sharp. Domestic cats do not have quite the same needs, so why are they still interested in crabs?

Maintaining the health of the hooves

Domestic cats still need to maintain the health of their claws. Scratching on rough surfaces does the same thing for domestic cats as for those in the wild, helping them get rid of those pesky nail skins.

Stretch

Just as grabbing our feet for tension in a yoga stretch can help us stretch deeper, cats will expose their claws in a stretch to better extend their tendons and muscles from the neck to the shoulders.

Marking

Another instinctive reason for scratching is the need for a cat to mark its territory. The scent glands in a cat’s paws release small odors on things that they claim to be “theirs”.”This is part of the feline social structure, even if there is only one cat in your household.

Get a satisfying feeling

Finally, Why do cats do something? Because they want to. Scratching is pleasant for cats. It acts as a natural stress reliever and a fun way to play, climb or fight with other domestic cats.
Should You Open Your Chat?

The easy solution for many cat owners in recent decades has been to unfold their cat. Then they literally cannot scratch the sofa.

However, declaring a cat is a painful and difficult procedure that can present many future problems for you and your cat.

The procedure to unlock a cat consists of amputating the last bone of each of its toes so that its claws never grow back again. It’s the same idea as removing each of the last segments of your fingers so that your nails never grow back. You would still be able to use your hands, but you would have fewer fingers and no nails.

Because cats walk on their paws, it changes everything for them. It is more difficult for them to walk and jump, because it is much more difficult to balance than before. The operation is also widespread with possible complications.

Declaring is prohibited as an inhuman act in many countries and made illegal in several cities in the United States

If you do not want to have a choice or a choice of a suitable cat, then there are several methods that you can use to get a good cat not to scratch your sofa and other furniture.

Methods to prevent a cat from scratching your sofa and other furniture

We start with some methods and different types of products that people often use in the training process. Often these are only needed during training. Once your cat knows where to scratch, you no longer have to worry about constantly packing or spraying your furniture.

1. Use cat scratch tape.

The cat scratch tape is useful for making furniture unattractive for your cat. Cats are sensitive to texture, especially on their paws. A cat likes to scratch. They do it partly because it feels good

Placing cat crab tape on furniture makes it unattractive for a scratching cat. You have to point it just above where they usually aim so that their paws pass over it as they go.

Remember that all cats are different. Some people hate the feeling of the group, while others don’t care about it. Fortunately, this is a small investment to make, even if the trial does not go ideally.

2. Put socks or nail caps on their feet.

Instead of completely removing your cat’s claws, you can protect your furniture by temporarily turning them off. The nail caps cover their sharp nails and perforate them effectively. They can still use their nails, but they will not be destructive.

You can use glue with the caps. This way you can slip one on each nail and it sticks longer.

Some people will like translucent caps so as not to make their cat paws look strange, while others prefer bright colors, so it’s easier to find them when they fall off.

Nail covers are perfect while you are following the training process, as they reduce the risk of something happening to your bank while you and your cat are following the process.

3. The use of cat claws in spray.

One way to get your cat to avoid furniture is to use a cat scratch spray. Spraying on an area will help them limit their destructive scratches or will make them want to avoid this piece of furniture.

4. Install vinyl panels.

Protect your sofa directly by temporarily installing vinyl panels covering the sides of the furniture. Placing them around the furniture won’t look great, but you just have to do it while you train your cat.

Vinyl panels make the sides of your sofa inaccessible to your cat’s dangerous nails. Even if they try to scratch themselves, nothing can happen to the fabric on the other side.

5. Provide a “scratching” plug.”

Finally, it is essential to give them an outlet to absorb their scratches. Even a matured cat will continue to try to scratch itself, showing that it has an ingrained and completely natural tendency.

Scratching posts are the most common selling points that people give to their cats and are essential for their training.

When training a behavior inside or outside one of your pets, be patient. It can sometimes take a while to change and redirect an instinctive action, especially if you have waited a while to fix it.
