A while back we made an instructable for a horizontal cat scratching post/pad. Mochi did use it, but the downside is she still clawed our couch too. Womp.
So we built a modern vertical cat scratching post that slides over the arm of our couch, hoping that giving her something vertical to pull on will spare our couch from further damage. And so far, she’s using it!!! Yay!!! Bonus, this thing also acts as a wooden couch sleeve to set your drink on. Double yay!!
