Default Cat vs Furniture

Dear beloved friends

I been thinking to get a cat.. i.o a dog (>.<). Well, the thing is.. my landlord put a nice leather couch and dining set that would set me back for months if they are scratched.. BANGKRUT you know.. BANGKRUT.

Well.. what if i put him in a room without the leather furnitures first, buy sisal rope scratching post (vertical and horizontal too!), teach it to scratch there by showing the motion for many days and even put catnip there.. until he used the scratching post.. put sticky tape on the leather's surroundings.. cover the leather with cloth..

will they still scratch my furniture? do they scratch doors as well? or the scratching post will be my saviour?

to me.. (i never had one) cats are vicious furniture killer.. besides that.. i love them..

HI ferreted,
I don know well bout cats. But i think it's depend on cats individually.
Don scare lah so many cat expert here. Rite? But what i know is my friend's kitties got 5 of them. She bought a new furniture at home 6 months ago. Not until a week, the furniture is in a bad shape. So kasihan. But different case lah. Her cats don have many toys too play but she let them roam around everyway.

hai..actually there is a spray that you can by at petshop, if i'm not mistaken la, yg membolehkan cat tak nak cakar furniture kita.. you spray benda tu dekat you punya furniture, and then the cat will not have a desire to scratch it.

my cat never scratch my door, as far as i know la..

i used to have a sofa before, but hancur my cat scratch..now i pakai kerusi kayu..because before dis i tak tau ade this spray..

GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR NEW CAT !!!!!

kalau pakai buah lemon.. make sure jgn perah byk sgt... see.. lemon ni pH is acidity... if your cat doesnt scratch you furniture... the acid will torn it out... especially the color of you furniture... for beginner.. better get the repellent sprays suit usage on the furniture... also prepare scratching pad for your cat... like me... very difficult to teach my chemong not to scratch on pillow and my katil... the method i use is... "rattan" .. piak piak on the floor to chase them away... chihihihi

Vivi,dont apply suma itu lemon seluruh rmh.mati kucing nanti.heheheh!! just press the lemon,sprinkle saja good enough.

Mary,my cat tak makan saman.dulu ada pakai spray but it doesn't works on them.degil kepala batu. so I used old method and it works for now.who knows what happen in the future klu kucing dah mutate dan tak takut lemon.

biasanya piak sebelum diorg datang ler... kih kih kih... at first... not so bad la the scratching marks... but if you dont teach them them properly... probably it will worsen... because they like to scratch at the same spot...refer to my chemong, atam & aning thread... i already put a wooden block for them to scratch.... i notice only one block damaged.. the rest still ok...hihihihi .. maybe after the existing one already hilang.. then they will start moving to the second block... hahahahah

how many cats you intend to take?? if 1 or 2 cats,for the time being you don't really need cage.buy cat carrier instead.you need that for your trip to the vet or if you want to bring your cat for jalan2.Nail trimmer?? I don't think you need that.let the cat keep their nail.keep their nature as possible.
