How to Restore Your Cat’s Favorite Furniture
Our cats love to scratch. As such we bought them a big (and expensive) cat tree so that our (more expensive) furniture would be saved from their claws. It has served us well. We have gotten years of use out of it, even with lots of small foster kittens running around and sharpening their claws on it as well.
Once an active cat has taken to a scratching post, they can tear it to shreds in a few months. Repairing it is an economical way of keeping your cat happily scratching the post instead of your furniture. This is a guide about repairing a sisal wrapped cat scratching post. Once you have repaired your cat scratching post it will look new, clean and wonderful.
However, with time everything fades and begins to look old, dated and just downright ugly. When we bought ours it was a neutral coloured brown but very quickly it began to ‘shed’ with so many small pieces of that cursed fabric everywhere around our house. The minute I would finish vacuuming it would be back , and sometimes even more… It was a never ending struggle.
Here is what our scratching post looked like before we repaired and restored our scratching post. Old. Tired. Dated. Worn Out. Ugly.
Our friends had a struggle that was even worse… their cats were rough! Their scratching post (which was bigger, better and more expensive than ours) lasted only about 6 months before the adorable monsters destroyed the fabric, carpet and sisal rope. They had to throw it out.
Even if you are already very handy and made your own scratching post it will need to be replaced or repaired at some point. When you are finished with repairing your guide it will look clean. Shiny. New. Wonderful. Check out what ours looks like.
