I am having new furniture delivered soon. How can I get my two cats to not scratch the furniture? They have scratching posts. They are part Siamese. Thanks!

I've used Sticky Paws tape on my furniture. It's a big double stick tape. Here is a link from Amazon, so you can see it, but I've gotten mine from Petsmart.
I also figured out that my different cats like different kinds of scratching surfaces. Two of them like vertical surfaces (regular scratching posts), and the other likes the corrugated surface that lies on the floor.
I've heard other people recommend Soft Paws. They're little covers that go over their claws, so they can't scratch things. I've never used them.
We got new furniture about 1 1/2 years ago. I was *so* worried, because our old couch was all scratched up. I was very vigilant about putting the tape on the corners of the furniture, and keeping posts blocking their favorite corners. And I'm happy to report that my cats don't scratch the new furniture! I don't know if the old furniture felt or smelled different, or if it's all the preventative measures I took. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your new furniture!
