If you don't wanna get him declawed, go to your local garden center and get a 97 cent spray bottle. Fill it with water,and set it to spray a stream. Whenever the cat does anything you don't want it to, light him up from across the room with it. The cat doesn't associate the stream with you and won't end up hating you. A squirt gun will work too but the bottle can sit next to your remote/computer/nightstand for weeks on end without leaking. My wife has 2 cats (with claws)and I've trained both this way and they haven't ever messed up anything since they were kittens. That being said I like dogs (works on them too).
