Good News!: The Devil Cat Doesn't Scratch the New Karlstad Covering

Annie's cat, Hula, had a fond attraction to the nubbly texture on the old Karlstad sofa fabric. Ironically, this was also one of the more expensive covers that they sold for the Karlstad line. The scratching posts would be right next to the couch and she would still scratch the corners... It brought great displeasure to Annie and me. We weren't sure how the new Karlstad sectional covering would do, but Annie opted for the smoother fabric as a deterrent (also cheaper). If Hula went after the corners of the sectional, I vowed that I would remove her front paws entirely. Annie gave me a big frown after that comment. We are more than a month in with this sectional and amazingly, Hula has gone back to using her various scratching posts. Thank the cat gods (or devils) for pitying us! Moral of the story; if you are stuck with a cat, do not get the nubbly textured covering for the Karlstad sofa unless you want a shaggy look for all of the furniture corners. =)

  1. Haha, I don't know where my previous comment went, but fyi the new cover and the old cover are exactly the same price. EXACTLY. fyi. Also please don't hate my cat. She really doesn't deserve your melodramatic "devil cat" (nor does Jezza deserve "devil dog", for that matter).
