he's nearly ruined our loveseat by chewing and ripping up the corners all around, and now is starting at the sofa. i have been able to repair it, but i want him to STOP and when have caught him doing it, i say NO! and he will quit. he actually understands no very well. but he pulls this crap at night when we are sleeping and i have no idea why. he's nearly two years old now and i have never hear of a cat doing this.
whether we have had change or not in the household, he has been doing this since he was a baby. i thought he would outgrow it eventually, thinking it was a kitten thing. like i said, he dosen't do it when anyone is around. it's like he waits for us to leave the house or go to bed.
i have smelled the furniture, thinking one of the kids wiped food or something on it. you know how kids don't think sometimes.
i just have no idea. and my husband is furious about it. i am afraid that the next time will be the last time one way or another. i will be just SICK to have to rehome him over a sofa, but what can i do. i can't have him destroying the house. and quite honestly, if my husband decides that he has to go, i have no choice.
i have heard of some green apple spray that you can use to deter chewing. has anyone tried it? any help would be appreciated. i want to stop this before he chews his way out of our home and my heart.
