A few months ago we bought a new sofa. The old one had been remodelled by the cats and had lace arms and sides, not funny but to be expected if you own cats.
The new sofa is now being eyed up for remodeling just like the old one and so action was needed.
I read up on the internet of various ways to deter your cats from scratching the furniture and one idea caught my eye. It was clear plastic attached with pins.
On further investigation I read that you could buy this plastic and the pins and do it your self and this is what we decided to do.
plastic £2.49 for a metre, twist pins £3.49 and upholstery pins £2.00
We've doubled the plastic and here's Tom doing the job.
The back of the sofa
Arm with the twist pins in place.
I know it's not great but I did buy the sofa because I liked it and I haven't seen much of it since we bought it as its always shrouded in covers to keep the little "
"monsters"" tinkers off.
Wish us luck and lets hope that it does the job. I've my doubts but if this fails then we'll have to get to like lace arms again.
