I'm having trouble with my cat always clawing and scratching up the carpet. In my last apartment, she scratched up the carpet by the doors to the point where I had to pay to have the carpet replaced. I have since moved to a new house, and have tried everything that I can possibly think of to remedy the situation. As a kitten I learned that she likes to play in water, so using a water bottle sprayer to train her did not work. I have used double sided tape on all of the edges of the carpet that she likes to shred, but she actually likes to chew on the tape and rip it up to get to the carpet. I bought her extra scratching pads, a cat tree, and horizontal scratching pads and redirect her when she scratches the carpet. I've tried using a citrus "no scratch" spray with no results. I'm against declawing so I bought the soft claws nail covers. She hated them and they lasted about 4 days on three different tries. She pulled at them until her paws bled. I'm not sure what other approach to take, and the carpet is already looking terrible! Getting rid of her is not an option (however destructive she is I love her!). Help please!
