Cats like different things in their scratching posts. Some like vertical, some like horizontal. Some like carpet wrong side up, some like it right side up, or cardboard or a piece of cedar fence post. I try to watch how they do sharpen, vertical or horizontal, and then put the post I want them to use beside the place they do use that I don't want them to. I encourage them to play on it with string or a stick, I rub some catnip on it. After they use it I move it to a place I want it. Usually this works. The piece of cedar fence post is soft and they seem to like to dig into in and I have to vacuum up bits of what they shred off, small price to pay.
