Question by Horse265: Cat behavior problems?
OK. We got kittens about maybe 4ths ago. The one like to claw and bite hard. I have many cuts from her. She even tore up a mat we had under the catbox.We got her a scratching post and she never uses it. I need some tips on how to get her to behave. She will run thro the house and climb the drapes. Help plz. Any help is appreiciated. Thank you.

try a detterent such as spraying water from a bottle on her when she scratches things, or spray the area that she claws with a citrus smelling spray or even leave a small bowl or fabric bag of freshly grated orange/lemon peel near the areas of objects she likes to claw and try rubbing catnip on her scratching ost, also is the scratching post taller than her nd enables her to stretch out at full length when she scratches? as for the biting and scratching of your hands, ignore her when she does this as she see’s your reaction to her doing this as a way of gaining your attention, she should soon settle down 🙂
