I’m still working on our family room update. I’m still waiting for Pottery Barn to deliver some pillows and a cute throw blanket. I also need to get the husband to help me hang a new window treatment and I need to buy a shelf to display some pictures. So much to do!
In the meantime I’m working on ways to cat proof our new furniture. Henry likes to scratch on the end of our couch. And yes, our cats still have their claws. I don’t believe cats should be de-clawed, so that is not an option in this house. So far Henry has scratched a few spots on our white living room couch…..but it wasn’t an expensive piece and it’s not too noticeable, so I haven’t really worried about it. However, this time around we decided to invest in a new Pottery Barn sectional couch…and I don’t want it to get ruined!
Aluminum foil and painter’s tape, of course.
So far it’s worked really well! They hate the foil and it is training them to stay away. This is by no means a long term solution….because it’s SO ugly! So I need help blog friends….any suggestions to keep the cats from scratching? They do have a cat scratcher that I try to get them to use….any other ideas?
