I really need advice. I didnt know much about cats until I found a 7 week old kitten under my car and she was homeless. I took her to the vet the next day and said I was going to keep her. She got all her shots and they cleaned her up. She ended up being healthy and now she is 5 months old. (the vet said she was about 7 weeks when I brought her in back in October) She is a pretty good cat from stories I have heard about other cats. She has a good home here. I bought her a scratch post and a cat house that is huge and cost me a fortune. She uses them just fine. BUT she still scratches my furniture and my bed!! I cant stop her. Ive tried a squirt of water saying no. Ive tried a time out in her cage. Ive tried a flick on the nose. Nothing is working. Another problem is she has a big home here which she can run around and go where ever she wants. Lots of hiding places. No one hurts her or bothers her but randomly while im not paying attention she will go in my couch where im sitting. I mean IN my couch and I CANT get her out. I have no idea how she even gets in there. I have recliner couches and im terrified one day im going to recline and not know she is in there. Shes doing this randomly and again with the dicipline when I finally do get her out. She doesnt listen. It seems she is getting worse over time. I am trying my best to not over do this whole dicipline thing but its not working. Before I say this last problem, I wanna say that she is litter trained and has never gone anywhere else. She will dig in her litter for 5-10 minutes, before going and after going. And she digs like a mad woman. Digs it all out of her bin and will even scrape at the bottom of the bin where there is no more litter cause she moves it all to one side. I am cleaning the floor twice a day because it is every where. I am using clumping litter, I use Special kitty litter, Ive switched it up a few times to try others, didnt work. I clean it once to twice daily. I think I have given all the info needed. I just really need help with these specific questions. Im not the best trainer and any advice would be well appreciated. I really wanna get her to understand before these habits become her.
