Using Velcro to Secure Items to Furniture or Hard Surfaces

My daughter has two rambunctious cats that chase each other all over her apartment. I found that by attaching small precut Velcro patches to the bottoms of just about anything, lamps, candleholders, etc. no matter how crazy the cats get, the objects stay in place. Depending on the size of object, it may require several pieces.

She has used this method for two years and it works. Removing the Velcro has not harmed any surfaces yet. She has a beautifully decorated apartment and doesn't have to worry that she will come home to a cat-disaster! Could work with objects that you don't want toddlers to pick up as well.

Museum Putty does the same thing, and is very kind to surfaces. It is available at most hardware stores (and Walmart).

This is a great idea, but I would advise using industrial strength velcro. It's a little more expensive (not much) but sure holds a lot better than regular strength velcro.

I use it under my plants on my mantel. My cat gets up there during the night when he wants to play but the dogs want to sleep. It's saved me a lot of morning messes!
