Stop Cats From Scratching Furniture

This post is by Siena Lee-Tajiri.  Ten years ago, Siena brought a plate of homemade vegan brownies to her interview with Jackson Galaxy and well, she was hired! Of course, their mutual love for cats, music, and flower essences also played a part.

We have been big fans of Sticky Paws almost since the day they were born and guess what?

We’ve finally brought them back!

So let the paw-ty begin!

Sticky Paws is much like a double-sided tape that helps deter cats from scratching on the furniture and also helps prevent them from stepping into places you don’t want them to be.

All you do is:

  1. choose a size that’s right for your needs and
  2. stick it on!

Sticky Paws will not harm your furniture or your cat.

Why else is Sticky Paws so great?

  • It’s made of non-toxic, transparent medical-grade adhesive
  • It will not harm furniture
  • It’s easy to apply and remove
  • Most importantly, it’s humane and won’t harm your cat

Jackson says

“My philosophy around behavior modification especially things like scratching furniture, has always been very simple: behind every no, there must be a yes. We always have to guide our cats to a better alternative. That’s why we sell scratching posts and cat furniture. In the mean time, we have to say no. Sticky Paws has always been my choice for the no part of the equation. It’s painless, it’s gentle, and it gets the point across. The point being – there’s better places to go and do your scratching. If you follow the no/yes technique, within a few weeks of having these training wheels on the couch, you should be able to remove them since your cat has made a good association with the scratching post, for instance, and a bad one with their old favorite spot. Sticky Paws has been my go-to product for this purpose for many, many years and I recommend it whole-heartedly.”

A Few Last Notes:

  1. Sticky Paws is a training tool and not meant to be on your furniture for the long haul.
  2. Sticky Paws is ineffective on surfaces treated with non-stick and/or stain-repellent products, such as ScotchgardTM.
  3. Replace Sticky Paws strips/tape/sheets weekly.
  4. According to the Paw Project, it seems that 25%–43% of all cats in American homes are declawed. I’d like to think that those numbers are going down dramatically with milestone legislation and bans put into place across the nation.
    Sticky Paws helps give cat guardians a safe, humane alternative to declawing.

Don’t declaw, use Sticky Paws instead!
