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.
If you have furballs who like to lay on your bed or chairs, consider using beautiful but durable throws over these pieces. These all-around blankets add a pop of color and texture to your space, but can also double as a place where your dogs can take their afternoon snooze. RL Tip: Throws made from boiled wool give your furniture extra protection and are said to be more comfortable for your pets, too!
If you really can't stop your pets from climbing on sofas and chairs, choose pieces that are made from micro-fiber fabric. It is versatile, very easy to clean, and is said to be very pet-friendly as it's not harsh on their fur! What more can you ask for?
RL Tip: If you find micro-fiber pieces too plain, keep things interesting by adding throw pillows in varying colors and designs.
