Numerous proprietors gripe that their felines scratch furniture and rugs, bite on texture, or crunch on houseplants. These dangerous practices devastate significant things, yet may likewise hurt a feline's wellbeing. One regular confusion is that felines are "out for vengeance" when they devastate family unit things, however these practices are typically essential for ordinary examination and play and, luckily, can most ordinarily be made do with a fitting arrangement and persistence.


Felines that scratch your number one couch or costly curtains are not determined to annihilate your home, yet rather wish to fulfill certain requirements. Scratching is to a great extent a stamping conduct that stores aroma from exceptional organs on the feline's paws into his region and eliminates the clear covering, or sheath, from the hooks. The scratch stamps and hook sheaths gave up may likewise be showcases of certainty. 
Since scratching is an intrinsic conduct like preparing or covering waste, it tends to be hard to stop. Be that as it may, felines can be educated to scratch on more fitting items like scratching posts. The accompanying three strategies will assist you with diverting your feline's scratching conduct. 
Recognize scratching inclinations 
To discover what your feline wants to scratch on, notice her cautiously. Does she lean toward floor coverings, curtains, wood, or some other surface? Does she scratch vertically, with her paws loosened up over her head, or does she favor even surfaces? Whenever you have sorted out your feline's favored objective materials and direction, you can purchase a scratching post that suits her requirements. 
Give things that match scratching inclination 
Scratching posts, all things considered, sizes, and surfaces are accessible at most pet stores. A rug covered post would be a decent decision for felines that scratch floor coverings. On the off chance that your feline favors lounge chairs and other nubby surfaces, pick a post shrouded in sisal or some other rope-like material. The scratching post ought to likewise coordinate your feline's favored scratching direction. A feline that climbs and scratches on window hangings would likely incline toward a post tall enough for an extended length, for example, those that mount on a divider or entryway. In any case, a feline that enjoys the level movement of scratching on a floor covering may be bound to utilize a straightened cardboard box, or a log set on its side (Figure 1). 
A few proprietors get innovative and assemble their own scratching posts and kitty action focuses. You can cover bits of wood with cover, texture, sisal, or different materials, at that point nail them together to make a "feline tree" with climbing roosts. This will help keep your feline engaged and fulfill her need to scratch. Any scratching post you purchase or construct ought to be solid enough that it doesn't overturn during use, and ought to be at any rate as tall as your feline remaining on her rear legs with front legs outstretched. 
Divert your feline's scratching conduct by setting the post close to a territory your feline likes to scratch. It would then be able to be steadily moved to an area of your decision. In the event that your feline scratches in a few areas, give a post close to every one. Take your feline to the new scratching post and prize her with treats, strokes, and commendation for utilizing it. You can likewise tempt your feline with treats or catnip set close by the post. Try not to dispose of the pre-owned scratching post when it looks battered and worn—that implies the post is very much utilized and is filling its proposed need! 
Make unsatisfactory targets inaccessible or less appealing 
The lone ensured approach to prevent your feline from scratching a given region or article is to limit access. Be that as it may, if this isn't down to earth, there are booby traps you can set up to debilitate scratching. Fabricate a pinnacle of plastic cups that overturns when knock to alarm your feline when she starts to scratch. Covering things with covers, sheets of plastic, or twofold sided tape may likewise deflect scratching. A more costly strategy is an indoor fence that conveys a mellow, innocuous stun when your feline crosses a limit. 
Since scratching has a fragrance checking part, felines are bound to re-scratch regions that as of now have their aroma. To help break this cycle, have a go at utilizing a smell neutralizer to freshen up these territories. 
You can additionally limit scratching harm by routinely managing your feline's nails (see representation in Figure for a progression of show recordings) or potentially by applying plastic nail covers that can be stuck over your feline's paws. These should just be applied to felines that permit you to deal with and control their paws. While wearing these covers, your feline can make a cursory effort of scratching, however will cause no harm. Supplant the covers each six to 12 weeks. 
All in all, felines don't react well to discipline since they see no connection between the discipline and the "wrongdoing." Punishment just shows your feline to fear you. More regrettable, it might prompt hostility. Shouting, spurting a water firearm, or alarming your feline with a noisy commotion when he scratches instructs him that your essence, instead of the demonstration of scratching, brings discipline. On the off chance that your feline is rebuffed for scratching just when you are available, he will basically figure out how to scratch when you are not there. Powerful impediments to scratching, for example, the "pinnacle of cups" booby trap referenced prior, are predictable, prompt, and are more averse to bring about a feline connecting a negative upgrade with its proprietor. 
Declawing is an elective and profoundly dubious surgery that is the subject of impressive discussion among feline proprietors and veterinary experts. In spite of its name, declawing is really a removal of the bones at the tips of the paws, not a straightforward expulsion of the nails. Like some other surgery, declawing conveys the danger of sedative difficulties, disease, dying, and, in uncommon cases, all the more long haul issues. Declawing won't check your feline's longing to scratch, yet will forestall the harm coming about because of the conduct. Declawed felines ought to never be permitted outside, as they are less ready to climb trees or to shield themselves.
