Sas a handling sensitivity on her hind paws. Usually, she will just bat at you or snap but has never bitten before. 

She also likes to scratch fabric sofa or scratching post (carpet). Before she was spayed, she lived with another cat, they didn't get along - will need to be the only cat.  She does overshoot so a tall litterbox would be best for her.
