Why to quit on the idea of declawing

A confusing and hot topic for cat lovers is whether to declaw their beloved cat or not. A temptation that appears easy, quick and useful for YOU but not for the cat. To have a clear idea what declawing is let’s explain it on you. Look at your fingers. Look well. Now imagine the small bone that your fingernail covers cut. How does it feel? Not pretty well, right? So, your cat feels the same but doesn’t have a voice to express itself. Declawing is one of man’s aggressive influence on cats to make everything perfect for him. Want a cat? Have it! Want a cat on a sofa avoiding any further problems? Have it all… But try to think a little about your kitty that you love so much. There are so many ways to avoid scratched and destroyed soft furnitures. Some cats feel comfortable with a scratching post and some are not satisfied with it. Cat Friendly Sofa offers cat friendly cover for sofa/armchair arms and backrests that works perfectly with cats. One of the alternative solutions to declawing, if not the best!

Microfiber, does it really work against scratching?

Does microfiber work against scratching? Recently we found  a good number of notes about microfiber and its magical anti-scratch effects… Does it really work? A miracle called microfiber?

 Well, actually, cats may show different behaviours. Sometimes cats may seem too lazy or don’t like your couch so much for scratching. Of course, there are such moments or such cats but not always. Anyway, even a lazy cat needs to sharpen its nails. Especially for indoor cats our couches seem something alluring and stimulate them to scratch. So the soft and smooth microfiber designed to resist your cat’s claws and considered to be unattractive for cats will, certainly, be destroyed soon. If the cat wants to scratch it will scratch your microfiber couch and, in the end, tear it to pieces. Microfiber is not a solution for sure, at least not for all cats.

Archaeologists discover a pair of sharpened metal claws in Peru

No weapon is so sharpened as your cat’s claws. In past, the ancient civilization knew how harmful could be cat’s claws and got inspiration by their shape to make sharpened weapons. In Huaca de la Luna, near the city of Trujillo (Peru) archaeologists discovered a pair of sharpened metal claws unhearthed in a nobleman’s tomb. With the metal claws they found a sceptre, earrings and a mask. Archaeologists suppose the claws were used from the local people, in the past centuries, during combats. Interesting to know how cats have inspired us for so many centuries.

Cat Friendly… what does it mean?

Here are some tips for those who have cats or want to get and they want to be a little prepared for this new Cat Friendly experience. If you want a cat companion then be ready to change your daily routine and do some modifications at home to prepare it for your “flatmate”s arrival. Why a flatmate? Because when you adopt a cat it’s not just a cat it becomes someone equal to you if not more as it’s your cat who spends time with you and not you with it.

So, what or who can be considered Cat Friendly?

Cat Friendly is the one:

-          who takes care about every detail at to make the house cat friendly and create a cat friendly environment

-          who wakes up every day at 7 (even on weekends) just to feed cats on time, by that time his wife is waiting for coffee in bed…who cares? first cats!

-          who shares his modest dinner with his best cat-friends

-          who thinks about comforts of his/her cat before buying  a sofa

-          who doesn’t care if he goes to work all cat fur on clothes and on the laptop bag, etc.

-          who greets the cats first when returning home

Cat Friendly means:

-          First your cat /master of the house/ and then you

Now, enjoy your Cat Friendly day!
