How do I stop my cat scratching our new furniture? He avoids the old couch and goes for the new one.

Well, my cat is a MENACE why it comes to that. He's 15 so I think it's a little late to train him not to. We put the SoftClaw caps on his front paws to minimize the damage. But he's an indoor cat, I don't know if yours is or not. If he's an outdoor cat, you'll want to leave him armed with his claws. They have aerosol sprays you can try, maybe if you spray down the couch it won't scratch. Personally, I've kind of just accepted that I can't have nice things while he's still alive, haha. I think if you nail a piece of carpet to a wall so it's stable and has no give like the couch, sometimes they'll go for that. I also drape a blanket over his favorite spots to scratch, that can work too.1
