Help is needed please!! We have 3 indoor cats who seem to malt and destroy everything! One is a scratcher, one is a chewer and one likes to pluck carpets up with his teeth!! They are all still young, two 18 months and one 10 months.

We moved house yesterday and are determined that this house will remain presentable! We have been told about Felliway products which may help the chewer (who is somewhat Siamese and a total wuss) and have spoken with our vet who has said he is probably chewing through nerves. The chewing is the worst issue as he chews everything.. He destroyed our last kitchen (all the edges) has chewed the edges of picture frames, and will even try and chew the glass shower screen. He's nervy when faced with new people but is actually incredibly loving and trusting with is so suspect it's just part of his personality he will always have.

Will the Felliway spray or plug help?

Any ideas on how to combat any of these problems. Any help would be appreciated!!

The plug in might help. They sound a little cabin fevered.

Do they want to be indoor cats?.

They don't know any different tbh. They are all rescue cats (from kittens) and had massive trust issues when we got them. They were kept in at first for their own safety as they were nervy but they never showed signs of wanting to go out and now I worry about how they would be if they went out! They don't show signs of wanting to go out now, no scratching at the door etc. The Siamese boy is both flighty when scared and ridiculously clumsy so it would worry the hell out of me if he was out near cars

What environmental enrichment do you offer them? This is a fantastic article about the subject. A big thing for indoor cats is mimicking predatory behaviour for food by hiding their food and making them hunt for it.

The article is brilliant, thank you.
