a way to keep cat from clawing furniture
I have found a product that I find to work very well with keeping my cats from clawing the furniture. It's called "Sticky Paws" and you can find it at any PetCo or PetsMart. It is basically like double sided tape and you can stick it to the corners and eges of your furniture. I think that it's not meant to be used on wood, but it can be used on many types of furniture and doesn't leave a sticky residue when you take it off. make sure you test a hidden area of your furniture first to make sure it doesn't harm the furniture. The Sticky Paws is a wonderful alternative to declawing your cat, but you still need to trip your cat's claws.
