Because this is an innate behaviour, scratching is challenging to control or quiet. The traces of scratches, along with the remains of the claw sheaths left on the substrate, can also show confidence in one’s strength. It’s like trying to prevent your cat from toileting or burying its needs in the sand. However, cats can be taught to scratch objects specifically designed for this, such as scratching boards or sisal assemblies, which you can find in an online pet store. Different strategies will help you redirect your cat’s scratching habit.
