I spent a pretty penny on a kitty condo for my newest cat and she loved it for the first week or so. Now it just sits there like an old piece of furniture . She is also very needy and clingy at times. And she isn't gentle at all with her claws. She'll come up to me while I'm sitting at the computer desk and reach her paws up to touch my leg, with claws extended. It hurts! And when I say "oww" or "no" well that just makes her want to do it again. She keeps her claws extended quite a bit when she wants attention. I know she's bored but I can't hold her 24/7 and she lets me know she is not happy about that.
