When you live with pets, you don’t have to sacrifice style or comfort to live happily together. You just have to make smart choices.

  1. Choosing the right fabric. Cats and dogs who scratch can cause significant damage to upholstered furniture. Leather and microfiber are the best choices when living with pets. If you prefer fabric, choose a tightly woven pattern to hide marks.
  2. Take care of your pet with regular baths, clipping nails, and taking them out. Consider a scratching post, a cat tree, or a dog bed so that your pet will have a place of their own. 
  3. Play with your pet often. Bored pets will chew, claw, and scratch just to get attention. Distract your pet with toys and a game of fetch and use their high energy for fun instead of destruction.
