Junior has a scratch post but he refuses to use it. Instead he sharpens his claws on my laundry basket and the side of my sofa. The pet shop owner introduced a repellant spray for the furniture but it was smelly. Not only Junior would be deterred, I would have headaches from the pungent smell. Thankfully the parts that he scratched are not too noticeable unless you go near to inspect.
So I have taken it upon myself to protect my dear sofa using my floor mat and blanket.
Any one out there has any other tip on how to overcome this problem? Please don't tell me to de-claw Junior as this would be really cruel.
