Your cat is a natural hunter - killer. Keeping claws in tip top condition is vital for survival in the wild and they do this by scratching. It's not possibly to train this instinct out of your cat, however it is possible to train them not to scratch the furniture.
Cat scratchers are vital if you want your furniture to survive. Praise your cat each time you see them using the scratcher and discipline them when they go for the furniture. They'll soon get the message that scratching is allowed but only in designated areas. One of our cats started scratching the post as we walked past just so she could be told what a good kitten she was.
I'd advise having a scratching post in every room your cats spends time in. Place it closer to the door than any scratchable furniture. For some reason our cats like to have a good scratch when they enter a new room. Take a look at where your cats been scratching the furniture, could your cat be doing the same?
