Scratching is a natural behavior for a cat. They do this to sharpen their claws and to mark their territory while getting a good stretch. In the wild this behavior causes no problem, but indoors it's totally different matter, it is damaging. Scratching posts are available in a variety of shapes and sizes at pet stores and online. As soon as my cat Mittens started to scratch my carpet and furniture I would take her to her scratching post and hook her claws in the material and watch her reaction. She would fervently scratch away, such a joy to watch.
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.
