I always heard that putting those realistic looking rubber snakes in your yard and hanging them in trees would keep birds away but I never heard it for cats. The cats around here are definitely not afraid of the "snakes" or the hose. But if you move the snakes around periodically, it will keep the birds to a minimum around your patio, etc.

I've had a few cats and none of them have ever shredded furniture. Mine have always seemed to prefer rugs. One of my cats now loves the door mat. For a cat I had a long time ago I put a strip of carpet on the wall, 6 ft by 2 ft, it loved to scratch and climb on it. I used a flash light beam for it to chase up it to get her to use it. I plan on getting some leather couches soon..gawd I hope they don't like it.
