A torn up side to a couch.We adopted a cat last year and she went to town on our new sofa, scratching it until it looked like a shag carpet. We tried deterrent sprays, laying blankets over the spot, and finally the sticky paper the eventually got her to stop.


I tried to figure out the best way to fix the cat scratched sofa and came up with using a felting needle. These needles are used for felting crafts and you can find them at crafts stores or from Amazon.

This is a bit of a tedious task but with a tad of patience you can get your couch looking like new again. A torn up side to a couch.

  1. You will want to find where the string is coming out and poke the needle it at this spot and far in as you can go, pulling the string back in. When using a felting needle you will want to make sure that you are pushing it in straight. Pushing in at an angle can easily break the needle. Also, make sure you push in slowly so that you don't hit a hard part of the couch and break the needle on that.
  2. Using a felting needle to push back in strings.

  3. Continue with this process until all the strings and pushed back inside.
  4. The fixed couch, looking nearly brand new.

It sure is impressive to see the before and after, amazing! You are right about the sticky tape, I did that on all of the edges of my couch and no more scratching occurred.
