We have a male cat Mr Oreo who likes to jump at the dividing wall between 2 rooms and rake his nails down both sides of the wall. 2 or 3 times a day I have to vac up all the little white chunks of drywall. He is only 3months old. He is damaging the wall and yes he has scratching posts but prefers the wall. I have trimmed his nails but that seems to encourage more scratching. I nailed up carpet rems today, sure hubby will love that designer look! We will have him neutered at 6 months. I hate to have him declawed but is there any way to stop this? He will be an indoor cat but I just wanted to know if there are other options.
