I use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum any hairs or dust. Then, I spritz the post with a mixture of vinegar and water, which gets rid of any funny smells. Hope this helps.

How can I stop my cat from scratching my rugs as a scratching post?

Provide a scratching post and try to train your cat to use it. Good luck with that!

Scratching is a natural instinct for cats. It's a habit they learn from their mothers and need to do it to sharpen their claws and keep themselves clean as well as using it as a territorial marker. It becomes a problem when cats do all their scratching on home furniture, which is why it's a good idea to buy a scratching post. Here are some tips to encourage your cat to use the scratching post and to leave your furniture alone:

The scratching post you buy should be appealing to your cat. It needs to be big enough and sturdy enough for them to be very active without knocking it over. Bring your cat to the post and rub their paws gently against it. If they try and scratch themselves against something else, you can say "No" firmly and bring them back to the post and keep rubbing their paws against it.
If they scratch the post on their own initiative, give them lots of praise and a treat. If they keep ignoring you, you can use a correction method i.e. spraying them with water, or a smell they don't like or releasing a loud noise whenever they do it. It's best to hide out of sight when you do this so that your cat doesn't realize it's you and resent you.

What's the best type of scratching pad for my cat?

Mine like carpet post and the bottom of the couch. He sometimes likes the cardboard that lays flat on the ground and NOT the cardboard that stands up. I bought the one from Target "boots and barkley" because it is reasonable prices but he just chewed the lower level and no interest in scratching it. So he didn't like A) but likes B) so you just have to figure what he likes. I bought two of the C) and he didn't like it at all, one is still in the package and one open barely used. Guess those will go on craigslist for $5 bucks. So you have to do a trail and error A) BOOTS BARKLEY Corrugate Scratching Post Refill B) CAT SCRATCH BB ARCH CAT SCRATCH C) Cat Scratching Play House

My two 11 months old cats keeps jump up on tables that is not allowed. when I said to them 'off' or 'go' and they will not respond to what I have told them. please help as I don't

Get yourself a spray water bottle like hairdressers use, and instead of being close enough to get scratched, give them a little squirt from a distance. Guaranteed to make them comply immediately. They hate water, and will take off in the other direction.

What does a cat tree look like?

A cat tree is basically a post with different levels for cats to climb and play on. Most times the post is wrapped with sisal cord rope so your cats can scratch on it and the sitting levels are covered in carpet.

It can range from your basic carpet covered boards attached to posts at various heights, or even more extravagant like an actual tree your cats can sit on.
