I JUST got a new matress and box spring, and my cat (sassy) just loves to get under my bed and totally rip the fire out of my box spring! As much as i love her, how to i get her to stop? i would never spank her, and i don't want to yell at her, but it is getting to the point where i don't know what to do! I don't want to have to keep on replacing the box spring, this is the 3rd time already!

My kitties did this also (I have 2). I squirt them with a water bottle, and within a few days, they completley stopped

I had a momma cat who ripped the cloth on the bottom of the box springs and kept trying to relocate her litter there.
I had to go with it until the kittens were big enough.
Make sure she knows where it is acceptable to scratch. Every time you see her scratching some where she shouldnt be pick her up and take her to her post and take her paw and scratch the post.

One solution is to rip the bottom lining off of the box spring. You don't need it anyway and then your cat wont have it to claw on under there.

Would it be possible to just keep her out of your room? Can you put something under your bed so she can't really fit under there....maybe some boxes? If all else fails you could put some double sided sticky tape on the bottom of the box spring so she won't want to scratch it.
