Question by h_i_m_e_e: How do I get my cat to use the scratching post?
I just bought my cat a scratching post, but I don’t think he knows what it is yet. He just kinda sniffs it, then scratches my computer chair again. How do I get him to learn to scratch the post?
(I don’t particularly mind that he scratches the chair, because that’s the only furniture he scratches and it’s already beat up. I just want him to know that the post is there for him to scratch, too!)

I had that same problem! My cat avoided the scratching post and went straight for my 1000 thread count sheets! EEK! I found that rubbing catnip into the scratching post did wonders! It got him active and once he realized what the scratching post was for he had a field day!
