How do I get the kitten to use the scratching post?
I have this large scratching post I had for my cats. So I'm trying to get the kitten to use it because he keeps scratching up the carpets on the floor. I say no and carry him to the post and run his paws along it. He just squirms and runs off. So how can I teach him he's only allowed to scratch on this post? He just keeps going back to the carpet over and over. Shadow is declawed (adopted this way at 2yrs old, I didn't do it to him so no getting mad at me) so I'm not really sure how to do it. I really don't want my carpet ruined from looking after someone else's cat.
