Boy, did I think I was smart
We recently got rid of our leather recliner, that my 3 'children' had decided was the purrrrrfect scatch post (even though they did use the 'real' scratch post placed right next to it). We bought a new chair in a the same fabric as our couch that they had never bothered with. All well and good for the first week---we did take precautions and sprayed the edges with one of those cat replants, but in the past couple of days, our middle 'child', Gabby has been found using her claws on the new chair. Yesterday, I read on this site about the double/sticky tape and quickly ran out and bought some, and fully taped up the sides of the chair where she's been scratching. Last night I noticed Gabby now has a new attraction.... she loves rubbing up against the sticky tape and licking it.
