My cat won't stop scratching
Hello, I'm new to cat forum. I'm hoping someone can give me some help with my cat Truffles.
She is an 8 year old spayed female. In the last six months, she has started scratching at everything, incessantly. She used to just scratch at the wood furniture in the middle of the night, and it seemed to be an attention getting device. But now, she scratches on the furniture, the doors, cabinets, walls, everything. And she does it from about 5 pm throughout the entire evening.
If I get up and go to her, the scratching stops. She rolls over and wants attention.
I should also mention that Truffles' 8 year old brother is somewhat assertive, and tries to dominate Truffles a lot, but I don't think that explains this new bizarre scratching behavior.
Can anyone help me figure out how to stop her of this habit?
