My partner & I decided to adopt a stray cat from the streets.

He was completely aggressive running into our lake property & begging for food.

He undoubtedly didn’t provide us the choice not to adopt him… Now both of us feed, care for & adore the cat. Since neither of us were very knowledgeable about cats, both of us have had a few surprises along the way… The most interesting thing is that cats shred just about everything. The cat loves to take his claws against the edge of the couch & tear it up entirely. I have tried introducing scratch posts & he still prefers the couch. My partner has connected cardboard to the side of the couch to protect it! Our cat seems to enjoy it. The real problem is that our couch now looks completely trashy. I have been looking into furniture that is more durable that either can withstand claws or repel a cat from scratching it. Basic furniture stores don’t actually have what I am seeking! Right now I am talking with an interior design & custom furniture company for some needed assistance. I have been talking about upholstery for the couch that is durable or getting a custom couch that is angled in a way so that our cat won’t bother to scratch it. I am entirely upset that I will pay for either brand new fabric or a brand new couch & still our kitty will keep on clawing it. I might be entirely doomed to have cardboard or furniture blocking the edge of the couch for the foreseeable future. Maybe if I have two couches he will only shred one couch.
