Hi guys, i'm planning to pet a cat for my kid and this is my first time having a pet in the house, however i heard problem regarding on them destroying furniture such as scratching sofa and etc, may i know is there any way i can prevent this action from them?
They wont really destroy the furniture lah. just like pull the fabric out and stuff. cats always need to tug on their nails. you will need to put cat scratch posts around the house or mats which they can use to scratch. if they have that then they wont scratch your sofa/carpet. also my cat really likes the cheap white IKEA bathroom mat. so thats a cheaper option to try.
my house has 2 scratch posts and the ikea mat, my 1 cat is pretty happy. and uses those to scratch and no longer kacau my dining chair.
also get a kitten (hopefully stray or from shelter). this is good cause its still sorta safe for your kid. and also doesnt have any learned habit of jumping on table, scratching people, etc. can be trained.
