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.
The best solution to this is to purchase a cat scratcher. A cat scratcher is specifically built so that a cat will scratch the scratcher instead of your furniture. Cat scratchers come in many different configurations - some are stand-alone posts while others hang from a ceiling or door frame. You can even purchase a cat tower with a cat scratcher built in. The scratching surface should be made from tightly wound Sisal rope which is good for your cat's claws.
