1. Excellent post. So much useful information. Thanks!

    1. Thanks so much Ann. I should maybe test some ways to fix those scratches and then write a blog post about that 😉

  2. Thank you so much for this post!

    1. Oh, I’m glad you like it!

  3. The male cat we used to have was not a fan of getting his claws clipped, but we did it to keep everyone happy, even him since we have hardwood floors and I tend to think it must bother animals to have their claws constantly clicking on the floor (maybe I’m wrong). Our female never seemed to mind and sometimes even appeared to enjoy it, relaxing in our arms and purring. She basically loved getting attention in any form. 🙂

    1. Awwww that is so cute. I never had a cat that purred when I clipped the claws. That sure would be nice!

    I love that you posting about your cats! I wanted to tell you that your leather sofa can be repairing by you with leather paint or fabric paint. Its so easy and works great! Another subject to post about!

    1. Yes, I want to write a post about fixing my couch sometime next month maybe! Thanks!

  5. I love this post and that you have highlighted the plight of declawed cats. In Canada 7 provinces have now outlawed it and I’m waiting eagerly for Ontario and Quebec to follow suit. Claws are a vital part of a cat’s anatomy and they need it to do cat yoga to stretch those back muscles, preferably on a scratching post! 🙂

    In our house, we have 164 ‘wolverine’ nails to trim every two weeks, an extra two digits because Jimmy Fancy Feet is polydactyl. We also like positive reinforcement to encourage our kitty crew to do the right thing! But I know there will always be the odd scratch, especially when using furniture as a springboard or landing pad. At the end of the day, we humans should be honored that these half-wild felines choose to live with us and grace us with their wonderful feline ways.

    1. I’m so glad that we are always on the same page. And wow that’s a lot of claws to clip. I love that you called it cat yoga because it’s so true and my kitties love doing yoga with me on the carpet

  6. Thank you so much for this post!! One out of my three cats is the scratcher and its partly my blame because I should have consistently been training her ( I found her when she was 5 weeks old, she’s now nearly 7!! ). It’s never too late to try though, right?! I love your tall cat trees.

    1. Hi Donna, no it’s never too late to try. She probably would love the extra attention 😉
