My boyfriend and I adopted a 4 month old kitten in January and he has been great until recently, something is bothering him where he wants to scratch our carpet now and we are unsure what could be bothering him. It started off gently but now he is harshly pulling up the whole carpet off of the floor. He hates things being on the carpet and will violently dig into the floor if we leave something like a backpack or sometimes even his toys. We have tried covering the carpet to stop the scratching but it bothers him more now. He walks on the tin foil, he still scratches if black pepper is on the floor, and he will not use a scratching post that’s vertical or horizontal. We have tried catnip, pheromone sprays, and playing with him but he doesn’t want to play he just wants to scratch. And he scratches all day and night. We’ve tried everything we could find online but I swear nothing is working. we can’t afford to replace our carpet. Any tips will help, we are losing hours of sleep and we are struggling.
