Those who have feline friends will tell you that cat trees are great solutions for scratching. However, these take up floor space and are not always aesthetically pleasing. Try wrapping sisal rope around pipes or table legs. It's a decorative detail that serves a special function for your cats.
RL Tip: When the rope is frayed, just uncoil and reattach clean rope.

RL Tip: Throws made from boiled wool give your furniture extra protection and are said to be more comfortable for your pets, too!
