Advice, please - I suddenly remembered that kittens have claws. At what, if any, age are they likely to start attacking furniture? I.e., are my Art Deco club chairs in any danger? I've loaded up on cat toys, a cat climbing tree etc (Belle has as many toys as I do, albeit for a different purpose)...will that stave off the damage?

So far, the scratch marks on my hands aren't causing too much comment - my friends just assume I've been playing rough games. But I hope that she stops pouncing on my toes first thing in the morning. I'm worried she might eventually go for other...appendages, and that thought makes me wince.

You might want to invest in a scratching post.

And perhaps cover any, ah, valuable appendages, to help keep kitty claws off of it.

I'm wounded, Courfeyrac. I thought you saw me as something more than a bedwarmer.

I've been told I'm rather dangerous in bed. So if you're looking for protection from sharp claws or teeth, I'm afraid I can only promise not to claw at you.

For shame, Courfeyrac. Implying that I'd let you sleep.

I'm afraid I haven't had much luck with pets. My cousin had a hamster once. We decided to have some fun by letting the fuzzball ride atop a remote-controlled toy car. The car was great fun, but a bit too much for the little fellow. Poor Cocoa had a heart attack as I was racing him around the living room.

It was years before my cousin fully forgave me.

Good luck with your Belle, and maybe you'll start a new collection!

One could always have them declawed, though that can be awfully cruel.

Francois and Nox haven't taken to clawing just yet, but I would have to agree with M. Combeferre. A scratching post may be a good idea.
