Noticeable scratching: what else can be behind it?
Perhaps the unwanted behavior is also a signal that your cat is simply bored and has no playmate. Domestic cats, especially if they are kept alone, often react to insufficient stimulation by scratching furniture and walls. In this case, regular seasons help, during which she can really let off steam. A loving cat massage can sometimes work wonders and can help relieve excess tension. Interesting cat toys can also be used for employment, especially if the cat is alone in the apartment. An empty box – possibly with different entrances – can easily and cheaply stimulate the exploration drive.
Stressed cats often try to reduce their aggression by scratching. Please use these signs as an opportunity to spend more time with your pet. If a cat scratches a lot, it can also indicate an above-average area behavior. This can be the case especially in non-neutered tomcats.
Conclusion: patience, patience and again patience …
With cats it often only really helps to be patient, to be persistent and not to give up! Employment and affection work much better than punishment, because in most cases the cat doesn’t behave like this to annoy you!
