This is a discussion on My Cat!! within the Entertainment board part of the General category; it depends how u treat your cat^^ mine does what i say (but she wont listen to others^^)...
well tomtom i had a cat once hide under my bed and when i woke up it pounced on me lol, we had to put it down cause it had cancer but it was a fun pet for the 7 years we had her any tips i can give no not rly. I had a expensive rug n apart from scratching biting and peeing on it my cat and the rug had a good relation.
The reason your cat does this is to clean its claws and mark its territory. You could get its claws removed, however I do not reccomend it, I've heard some bad things about how it can hurt your cat. As with most training, watch the cat often and when it attempts to scratch on something immediately do something (such as spraying it with water) to stop the cat from doing it. Over time the cat will learn that bad things happen when I scratch something, so it will stop it, for the most part. Also, try and get a scratching post or something the cat CAN scratch on.
Or just put something over you couch. Worked fine with me.

Heavy boot, Stomp and repeat.
Ive hear of this spray that you use that gives a bad scent and keeps the cat away, something like bugspray but for cats and dogs... well I had it for my dog like 2 years ago and it worked.
