Today, I tried to train my cat to scratch the scratching post by giving her a treat every time she used it, but she took that as getting a treat every time she scratched something. Now, not only does she scratch all my furniture, but she also meows for a treat while doing it. FML

  • My brother used to have a few pennies in a small sandwich like container. He shook it every time his cat was scratching something up, or jumping up on tables. The cat REALLY hated the noise the pennies made.

  • Do not use spray bottles to deter cats from doing something, if she tends to scratch somewhere more than others put tinfoil on the ground by it as cats dont like the feel of it on their paws, or buy more scratching posts and put them everywhere she likes to scratch. Also try to put catnip on the scratching post, but the main thing is DO NOT USE A WATER SPRAY BOTTLE!!! Cats do not learn things like us and do not understand that what they are doing is wrong and just see you as terrorising them
