I bought one of those recliners with all the bells and whistles. One day I sat down and noticed the front of the right side had rips and pulls down one side. I was so disappointed that my beautiful new chair was damaged like that but I was puzzled and couldn't work out why or what had happened because it was perfect when it arrived the week before.<br />
The next day I found out. My neighbour's cat Sophie came to visit and I let her in as usual. She likes to wander through my house and sniff everything and later after she'd gone I realised that the damage on the chair was worse going right along the armrest. <br />
Sophie doesn't understand why now I only say hello through the window and don't let her in. :(
Get him a scratching post.
You could try a squirt gun. It works great.
train him with temptation treats. Reward him when he listens and behaves. Don't give reward when does wrong.
