I have Stanley Meet Gloria Shirt bought several items specially designed for cats to scratch on. They prefer furniture. It’s ok. Furniture is just furniture. A cat is a living being. My ragdoll absolutely hates being told ‘no’ it upsets him, so he’s learned very quickly not to do naughty things. Now I very rarely have to say ‘no’ to him, he’s such a good cat. He’s never scratched anything or anyone, he never jumps onto the kitchen side as he knows he’s not allowed to.
Stanley Meet Gloria Shirt is available in all styles
My ragdoll loves going out too, I walk him on a lead, he’s so good. We have a shelter kitty who was declawed by his previous owner. My furniture appreciates his lack of claws, but I feel really bad that this happened to him. I also feel like I have to explain myself every time I tell someone he is declawed. One of my past kitties came declawed from a previous home as well.

I always did the same same thing, telling new vets and others that I would never have done that to her. I had a kitty who was declawed by a previous owner. I felt exactly the same way. Current cat claws like mad and climb the window screens but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My old lady cat I got as a senior was already declawed when I got her.
My young fat Stanley Meet Gloria Shirt cat BB has her claws and for all her stubbornness, rarely has to be stopped from clawing anywhere she is not supposed to. She has a tree, a scratching post and her own upholstered footstool to claw and I trim her nails every week. 98% of the time she’s only scratching where she’s supposed to. The only time she deviates is when we’re a bit late with her food.
