Repairing Cat Scratches on Leather Sofa

I have a new brown leather sofa and a crazy cat who has scratched the heck out of the arm rest. Any ideas to make the scratches less visible?

We had a crazy cat too, and a brown leather sofa. I used Old English and wiped it on, but he scratched the side of the couch below the arm rest. We have to be careful that we don't touch it for a while afterwards and it doesn't last forever. Maybe you could make up a little bit of Rit dye to match the brown? The Old English makes the scratches less noticeable from a distance, but up close you can still see that it's scratched. Good luck! (08/23/2005)

Try using paste shoe polish, the color of the couch. You can also cover scratches on wood furniture with shoe polish (paste/wax) kind. Try to match the color of paste with the color of the wood or leather. I used to do upholstery work and found this worked well.

Try using a fine tipped felt pen, as close in color as possible. On light colored leather use a lighter color than the leather. To stop kitty from further scratching get a small spray bottle filled with water and each time you see him scratching anywhere he should not, squirt, right in the head. After a few times of that, he'll stop. Be diligent. (08/13/2007)
