For some reason, Lola decided to scratch up our leather furniture. A couch, loveseat, and chair. Hubby is furious as he is the one that caught her in the act. HELP. What can we do to fix this/prevent this.
Yes she has scratching posts and she has always used them. I have no idea why she did this. She did it on all the corners of the chairs. (black leather so it shows quite well) This is totally new behavior. It literally just happened. We were having storms this morning, and hubby came home at noon to find her doing this. Maybe the storms got her rialed up??
If you have to be out of your home, I would confine her to one room. You could also cover the chairs, sofa with some plastic sheeting or old sheets. Just make sure to tuck it in so she can't get up underneath to scratch. Can the scratches be covered with something that won't make it as noticeble, like shoe polish or some sort of dye?
Yes...yes there is and I can not remember the name...it is on the tip of my tongue though.....can you read it for me.......:wink
I wish I could remember it...but it fixes tears...scratches and small holes/punctures..you do not even see the repair...auuurrrrghhhh...you can buy it at Canadian Tire in Canada but I have no idea where else.
"K"...tonight...or should I say in the morning...like 3am...when the name hits me like a brick and wakes me up...I will call you with the name then
Oh...and cardboard....perferably thick shipping kind...that is what I gave my cats (along with a chunk of broken cedar fencing)...and that is where they go...they like the texture of wood the best and cardboard is another "ribbed" texture they can realy sink thier claws into...lol
Thanks everyone. I did go out and buy yet another large scratching post to put where she was tearing up the most. Also the sticky tape says it can damage leather, but then again, its already damaged right *sigh*. I also bought some spray for the couches that is supposed to make her not want to scratch it. Funny thing is she tore up all the black leather items but my hubbys red leather lazyboy she didnt touch. Weird.
Definitely try some other different types of scratchy things. Some cats prefer the cardboard horizontal or slanted ones or U-shaped ones. My girl actually prefers cardboard egg cartons. She likes about 3 stacked together. Rub catnip into the scratching posts as well about every 2 weeks.
I have a 3 year old neutered rescue. I got him when he was 4 months old and I’ve never had a problem with him. But I came home from college because of the virus and he’s been strangely aggressive.
He still cuddles at night and loves to be pet and held. But sometimes I will be petting him and he...
There are several cats who hang out in my apartment complex's parking lot. Four live at the house next door and have food, shelter, routine vet care, etc. Two are sort of skittish and rarely seen, and two are exceptionally friendly and will run up to people they see hoping for pets. I literally...
I have two cats that are friends - Tobi & Moo. They used to run around and play together.
Moo went the vet 2 days ago and when he came back Tobi (Bengal cat) was not happy. It has been about 2 days now and they have been separated. We let them sniff each other through a cracked door and...
This nearly drove me crazy(er)! I purchased a Bengal kitten last November(2019) and he had a lot of health issues, but on top of those he would perch on the edge of all the water bowls and urinate in them!! I dealt with the healt problems but his "use" of the water bowl I couldn't handle, nor...
Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum and would love to get some feedback on my introductions.
My first cat (Sampson) is almost a year old, neutered male. We're very bonded, he adapts to new situations very quickly and is pretty much glued to my side. Additionally, he's very vocal, though I...
