No-Scratch led to no scratching. My cat was having a big problem with scratching up my stairs and ruining the carpet there. When I went to the store, I saw this spray, and the woman working there recommended it. I sprayed the stairs, and I’ve been spraying it every week, and he hasn’t touched them! In fact, I haven’t done it and it “wore off” a week ago, but he still has stayed away from it. I used to catch him at it several times a day, and now I’ve only caught him once in the past 2 or 3 weeks. He’s just as comfortable walking up and down the stairs, and even relaxing on them, but he just has stopped scratching. It may not work for every cat or every situation, but it certainly helped us.
