I have microsuede and suede furniture and a bossy cat I make certain that the things she thinks she's "getting away with" (plastic bags with the ends tied, crumply newspapers, rawhide strings, are available to her near her bed, near her scratching posts, and in strange places such as in the narrow area between the door and the wall in the bathroom, before I leave. I scent her scratcher with a bit of catnip. spritz the furniture with a citrus-scented spray(HATES THAT) toss some sheets of foil on it, and leave. I can see upon my return exactly where she has been, what she has done, and that my furniture is fine. Just think like a cat!

The soft tips for cats & dogs claws might be helpful. Cats hate scratching plastic so when I had my leather sofa (I have 5 cats), I covered the outside in thick plastic and put plastic pieces on the corners.


The pieces are for like the corners of walls and stuff. It is hard and they never touched the couch. I have heard that they do not like walking on foil, maybe place some (not balled up) around your sofa and they won't get near it.

I trim my cat's claws about once a week.
