Optional - Vertically staple one end of your sisal rope to the bottom of your log. Begin to wrap the rope as tightly as possible around the log until you get around 6 inches from the top of the log. Vertically staple that end and trim any remaining rope. Make sure you staple vertically to prevent your cat from catching claws on the staples.
Cat climbing trees are also a good place to interact with your cat. Playing is easier in that you can do this standing up, as well as having the added benefit of the tree getting the claws and not your hand. The more 'places' your tree has, the more games you can get kitty to play. Cat climbing trees are an investment that will help save your furniture from industrious claws and add a new dimension to your relationship with your furry friends.
A good scratching post must be stable so that so that it won't topple over, and it should be a few inches taller than the cat. The cat should be able stand and stretch upright against the scratch post, which should be covered with rough material that has a vertical texture. Placing the post in a corner of the room where the cat likes, and sprinkling some catnip on will be even more attractive to the cat. Cats go crazy when they smell catnip. Another and even better location would be to place the scratching post where the cat originally started scratching your carpet or furnishing.
Correcting the bad behavior with your voice by saying naughty kitty will be understood. You have to be consistent however and patient, and continue to take the cat to the scratching posts. In the beginning you will have to keep an eye on what your cat is doing and catch her before she digs her claws in your furniture or carpet. Your cat will soon understand what you expect of her. Reward good behavior with a cat treat.
