Take Away Temptation

The less fabric and wood in your home furnishings, the better. Cats scratch trees when outside so avoiding wood in interior design choices is especially helpful to avoid destruction. Choose furniture made of metal, plastic, ceramic, glass or Lucite. Install window treatments like blinds, shutters, valances and inexpensive sheers. Or, keep windows beautifully bare. All these design choices mean your cat simply won't have the option to destroy something you love.
