The other day Douglas noticed this. My newly reupholstered beautiful chair was scratched.
This one tried to look innocent, but I had a feeling that I knew what had happened.
Luckily, it only took a couple of snips to cut off the loose threads. It does not look bad, but we have to keep her from doing more damage.
This was the first solution. I clipped her little claws with a nail clipper. I have been doing this every couple of weeks since she was a baby. She does not even mind. She just lays in my lap and purrs while I do it. Crème is the easiest going cat that I know.
The next solution does not look as good. We will take the towel off when guests come over, but it is going to stay until I am sure that she will leave this chair alone.
Finally, I put out this piece of carpet. It was actually under the seat cushion on that chair before it was reupholstered. Crème has enjoyed scratching it, so hopefully this will keep my chair safe.
I have had an idea for a DIY scratching post for several months, but I just have not done it. Hopefully, it will happen soon. I want to keep my chair looking beautiful.
