Orange eyes abound this week. A beautiful Calico girl, surrounded by 2 handsome boys, are our featured cats this week. Bud is a charming, playful fellow and only 3 years old, a beautiful buff and white medium hair boy. Paisley is a sweet, though still a bit nervous (note ears in “airplane mode” in picture), 3 year old calico just seeking her new person’s lap and Noodles is a medium hair 8 month old with a very charismatic, funny personality. All animals adopted are spayed or neutered, have age appropriate vaccinations and testing, and are microchipped (with registration).

Give your cat appropriate scratching surfaces that she actually likes! A scratcher must be sturdy – if it moves or shakes during scratching, cats tend to not use them. They can be vertical, angled or inclined, or horizontal (e.g., inexpensive cardboard scratchers). Scratching posts should be taller than the length your cat can stretch out, so she can reach up as far as possible and scratch comfortably. And they can be made of various materials – carpet, sisal rope, cardboard, or plain wood. She will let you know which surface she prefers.

Is your kitty not using the scratcher consistently? Move the scratcher over to near where she SHOULDN’T be scratching, sprinkle the scratcher with catnip, lure her over with a toy, and reward her (treats or praise) when she scratches. She’ll get the idea quickly!

Use clicker-training. Any time you catch your cat scratching a preferred surface (like a scratching post) you want to tell her she’s done a good job. You can use clicker training to do just that. It’s all about positive reinforcement! If she still occasionally scratches the furniture, don’t yell or punish. Gently take her over to the scratcher and encourage her to use it and reward her when she does! Using positive reinforcement is where it’s at – treats and praise are highly effective.

You can discourage scratching on inappropriate surfaces by applying double-sided tape to the area temporarily regular claw trimming will help, but kitties will still have the urge to scratch things because they need to stretch their back muscles and also mark objects with the scent glands in their paw pads. Cats especially like stretching and clawing when they wake up from naps, so if your cat has a bed she likes, put it next to a scratcher.

We celebrate all the volunteers who work with the Monroe County Animal Shelter and the Monroe County Friends of Animals. They are a big reason so many animal's lives are being saved in Monroe County. Smokey and Miss Kitty represent us as good will ambassadors and live in their costumed characters through snow, sleet, freezing cold and blasting summer heat and humidity. A special thanks to Paul and Tina Wenner for their dedication.
