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!

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.
