How can I get my cats to stop climbing the walls?

Yes, you read that correctly, my cats are climbing the walls like spider cats. I recently bought them scratching pads and have nailed them to the wall trying to discourage them from climbing the walls but it isn't working. My cats like water, so spraying them with water won't do anything. I don't want to have to hit them because my kids will copy me and just hit them all time.

  • Sounds like they need more stimulation. Cats climb.. it's what they do. See about building or buying cat trees. :)

  • One of my cats is a bengal, she also likes water. I took a plastis container and put a fish tank pump in it so the water always moves. She loves to play with it and drink out of it. Contact me if you need more info.
    I also tie strings to door knobs and fan strings and stair rail. They need more entertainment than the average cat.
