So me and my partner's Hannah's 7 month old kitten millie (she's not fully grown till she's 1) has decided she does not want to play with her scratching post now and has started scratching everything she can find she's already damaged one of Hannah's dresses by scratching at it we want her to stop being so destructive we understand Millie needs to scratch to keep her claws at the right length hence the scratching post
she's an indoor cat and rarely goes out as gets frightened easily by cars etc.
P. s I am going to mention someone here as she's good with animals aswell @hannah591 and I would like to see what she suggests aswell

It seems she prefers fabrics so find some scrap fabric and hang it up by her scratching post. Put catnip on her scratching post and she may start scratching in that area. When she scratches something she shouldn't, scare her, make a noise or splash water on her and you'll teach her though negative reinforcement that whenever she scratches those things, those bad things will happen. Never fail to do it. When she scratches the scrap fabric or the scratching post, give her a treat.2
