Hi everyone, Its been a while since I posted in here, so here is a quick update. Me and the girlfriend moved in together back at the start of May with our 2 little fuzzballs, Lola and Jade, in tow. They have their own bedroom with cat tree, bed, toys galore and a nice big house to run around in. But we have one major problem which is just getting worse. During the night and the day when we are away at work, we shut all the doors upstairs bar their bedroom, obviously. This includes our bedroom, the bathroom and my "Man Cave". They have a tendency to chew wires and they would have a field day with my PC and games consoles. And this is where the problem is, they always want to get in to these rooms. Whether they know we are in there or not, they will scratch at the doors and the carpet by the doors incessantly. If we are in the bedroom, such as trying to have a lie in, like I was trying this morning, they will scratch and scratch until we physically get out of bed and tell them off. Now the worst part. When we are both away at work, that is when the real damage happens. If we aren't there to stop them, they just keep going, so much so that Lola (the older one) has worn a nice hole in the carpet by our bedroom door. I tried putting some of that plastic, high traffic area, sheeting to cover the area by the doors, but they scratch so hard that just moves and they have access to the carpet. Safe to say, we will not be getting our deposit back now if we ever have to move out. So, basically, all I would like is advice from any of you on how to stop this getting any worse. Have any of you had similar problems? They are both lovely cats, and always happy to see us. They always sit by the front door when we come home from work and say hello with a cute meow. But this is starting to drive us both mad, as the house always looks a mess with all the carpet fibres scattered everywhere. We tried leaving the bedroom door open to see if that helped, but little Lola managed to find my ear plugs and thought it would be a good idea to see how one tasted. Several hours later, her stomach decided no, it wasn't. On my work shoes. Anyway, any help is appreciated, thank you for reading my wall of text. If you didn't read it. Cats have destroyed the carpet upstairs, how can we stop them from doing it more?
