If you notice that your cat is still using your furniture as a scratching post, you will need to modify this behavior. One way to do this is to sharply and firmly say 'scratch' as you are redirecting your cat towards the acceptable scratching post. If this does not seem to work, you can use a spray bottle. Putting the bottle on mist, one squirt should do the trick. Your cat should take off running away from the unacceptable location. As soon as he or she goes back to your furniture, again squirt once and firmly say 'scratch' as you are pointing in the appropriate location.
When choosing a cat climbing tree, make sure the base is wide and heavy enough to prevent tipping when the cat is bouncing around at the top. One way to test this is reach to the top (if you can) and see how hard it is to pull out of vertical. Obviously, you do not want to be standing on the base when you do this. If it moves easily, this is not a tree you want.
