My cat have so much fun playing with their scratching post and sometimes they really get scratching on it! There are a lot of different designs and they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes which makes it really easy to get one that suits both you and your cat. Occasionally at first a cat might catch on to the fact that it is supposed to scratch on the scratching post and *only* on the scratching post. When this happens I grab the cat by the scruff of its neck (not so as to hurt them of course, just so they get the idea they're in trouble), show them where they were scratching that was wrong, give them a light 'spanking', and then show them how to claw in the correct spot. The most I have had to do this is three or four times. Cats can catch on quickly when they want to! Also it can help if you give them a treat the first couple of times they scratch on it of their own free will.
