*Additional Advice

Cats scratch to maintain their claws. Scratching sheds the outer husk, revealing a new, sharper claw underneath. Scratching posts help cats with this.
Provide an alternative scratching post near area of unwanted scratch marks.
Other environmental modifications can decrease your cat's stress and make your home cat-friendly, including high resting places in different rooms, sufficient and daily-cleaned litter boxes, providing additional feeding places and water bowls, and using a microchip cat flap so your cat has complete access to the outdoors.
