when I'm sitting in my computer chair working, my cat likes to come up behind me, meow and do a "stretch" while he's digging his front claws into my cloth chair. No matter how many times I yell at him "NO!" and push him away from the chair as soon as he starts it, he just keeps doing it the next time anyway. Any ideas anyone??

Re: How do I stop my cat from scratching up my computer chair?

Well I think I know what I would do, but this is probably better left to actual cat owners Laughing I cat sat once for a cousin of mine who ruined my blinds amongst a few other things, never again. Not a cat fan at ALL! Laughing

Here are two ideas for you to try.

Sticky Paws Anti Scratch Tape For Furniture

Stop cats from destroying furniture, countertops, stereo speakers, drapes, carpets and more with these transparent "sticky paws"! Simply peel back the brown base sheet and place Sticky Paws on surfaces in your home that you don't want your cat to scratch. Sticky Paws are non-toxic, water soluable, and won't leave a sticky residue. Don't Declaw...Get Sticky Paws!

Bitter Apple Spray For Cats

It comes in a spray bottle and you spray the chair or where ever you don't want your cat to chew or scratch. They hate the taste of the bitter apple and shouldn't do it again.

Hope that this helps you out.

The bitter Apple works wonders! Smile
I've never tried the sticky paws

I agree SmartMom, the bitter apple does work great. I have two cats, just got them a few months ago. When they first came to live with me they were scratching a certain place in the carpet, I got a bottle of bitter apple and they haven't done anything like that since.

Don't they have to lick the chair (not just shred) in order to taste the bitter apple? Laughing

My best friend uses plain old double sided tape.

I would use my water bottle. It may take a while for them to get the message, but they will learn. I have not had much luck with bitter sprays for cats.
