Does your cat love putting her clawprints in everything and anything around your house? “Cats scratch to mark territory and to shed the outer layer of their claws,” says Stephanie Shain, a pet-adoption director at the Humane Society of the United States. What should you do? Find the ultimate scratching post and put the post near the piece of furniture or whatever that he is scratching until he figures out what is fine to scratch and what is not okay to scratch. Once your cat is adjusted to the post, then you can move the post elsewhere. What do you do if your cat is scratching the dog? If you have any other tips for those scratching cats, please post them in the comments section.
