Also, why do cats scratch on furniture? They get to stretch out their bodies and extend and retract their nails. When they scratch, the movements help remove the outer nail sheaths. Cats also scratch to leave visual and olfactory (scent) markers. Some cats also may scratch furniture because they are not provided with adequate scratching posts.
Considering this, what material do cats not like to scratch?
Choose Microfiber or Microsuede Another good fabric option for those with cats is microfiber or microsuede. These fabrics are more budget-friendly than leather, and they use very fine, tightly woven threads that are hard for cats to dig into.
How can I protect my leather furniture from my cat?
You can use a product called "Soft Paws" which are dense rubberized tight fitting covers for your cat's claws. You will need to put them on all four feet to be effective. Most cats don't like these, but will get used to them after a few days. This is considered a humane approach to de-clawing.
