My cat is very young (8 weeks), and she scratches a lot. Something tells me this is just something she'll grow out of... but how can I let her know it's not all right to scratch people? Currently, when she sinks her little claws in, I remove her and move her away from me. And if she comes back, I do the same until she stops.
I got her a cardboard scratching board (the ones with catnip in them), because I know cats have a natural need to scratch... but all the scabbed up scratch marks on my legs and hands are getting to me, haha.
