#97 – Teach Moxie to scratch something other than that chair.
Dave tells me that I should go ahead and count this as being done before Moxie changes her mood and goes back to scratching our chairs. She’s actually been good lately and is USUALLY scratching the scratching post…like the good cat she is usually not.
The fancy organic citrus anti-scratch sprays that we used religiously on our furniture did not work. The ugly sticky plastic strips that we used on our furniture did not work either.
What seems to be working in the end is simply moving the scratching post to the middle of the room…located right between our two chairs. A little positive reinforcement…making Moxie feel like the center of attention…is what she responds to.
