Found 22nd May 2011
I'm looking for a product that I can spray or wipe on my leather couches to stop my cat from clawing them before they get any worse. The ones i've seen are for your garden to keep cats away

Pets and small children will cause damage in any household. Decisions need to be made what you consider to be more important.

Easy answer to that put them all in boarding until they are ready

Cats don't like citrus, so anything lemon based should deter them.

just buy an iron sofa and through wire connect it to a wall socket...kaaaboom is sound you will hear after the last time you see your cat or perhaps the last time the cat sees you.....

yeh but then she need to feed the dog to you.....lol i mean your avatar.

I'd heard vinegar was meant to deter them. I tried it in my kitchen to try keep my cat off the worktop but didn't work with him.

I have heard this from quite a few people:
Get a water spray and when you catch the cats clawing at your sofa/doing something you don't want them to do, then spray the cats.
It doesn't hurt, they don't like it and soon get the idea not to do it (or if they do they will be sprayed).

Don't know about sofas sorry but had heard about putting tin foil near curtains. It is supposed to stop them trying to climb up the curtain.
I think the water spray is probably the best way but not sure what you could do when you are out of the house if they are left in the room. Like someone said they are not supposed to like citrus.

This. It works. But it takes a few weeks for cats to learn it so you're probably a bit late

Don't know how we trained our cat but he doesn't go on sofas of tables/worktops. Probably because when he did, we shouted at it and gave it a right telling off! could you train your cat to use the post?

We keep cats out of our garden with lion dung. Ohh and the air pistol helps

If it worked that well, use the same treatment with your cat (_;)
