Sorry in advance for what is probably going to be a rambling post but I don't know where else to turn to. I have moved a couple of times in the last year. Cats have seemed to settle in OK in terms of exploring, eating, using litter trays etc. However they have both become very destructive in ways they never used to be. Constantly scratching the sofa even though they have scratch posts. Eating books on shelving units, scratching a canvas on the wall, pulling cables, odin has even started chewing the corner of a chest of drawers. I am aware it is most likely boredom so I have been playing with them morning and night to try to wear them out, trying different types of toys, getting them into a routine but nothing seems to be working. It's seriously stressing me out and due to how destructive they're being. I can't relax at home as I'm always keeping an eye on them. its difficult to leave them alone with full run of the house when noone is home either which I know isn't going to help the boredom situation but I can't think of any other way to stop them. Because it's not just chewing or just scratching finding deterrents isn't so easy either. I'm worried that I'm not able to provide them with the life that they need and deserve at the moment and it's breaking my heart. I don't want to rehome them I love them more than anything but I dont know how to fix the situation.
