Scratching is a normal behavior for cats: the instinct to scratch is hard-wired into cats, they scratch to mark territory, promote healthy nail growth, stretch and tone muscles and even alleviate stress. Help prevent scratching on furnishings by using a scratch deterrent training spray on the furniture that your cat likes to scratch. Our Petlinks Scratch Stop spray is the perfect antidote for those sweet little daggers that claw into your home furnishings! When used in conjunction with scratchers, deterrents are very effective at training your cat where it’s acceptable to scratch. Application amount and application recurrence vary depending upon each cat?s response to the spray.
