How to keep the cat from ruining the carpet???
Fortunately, the orange shag carpet in our living room is 33 years old and will hopefully be replaced soon.....but we have a step-down into our living room. There is a step down from the dining room, entrance area, and the bedroom area. Which means there are 3 step areas, where our cat loves to treat it as his scratching post. He has worn the carpet down to the wood. Of course I yell at him during the day, but I think he does alot of it at night. Any suggestions on how to keep him away from there?......I sure don't want him doing this to a new carpet!
