Cats & Microfiber Furniture

Save

Cat owners are always looking for furniture that will not be turned into a scratching post by felines. Microfiber furniture has proven successful for many pet owners who find their cat does not scratch it and it's easy to clean.

Material

  • Microfiber is a man-made material. Its fibers are so closely woven together and processed that the fabric is smooth, durable and repels moisture. It often resembles suede.

Significance

  • Cats have a natural instinct to scratch and sharpen their nails. They prefer materials they can hook their claws into. Microfiber is not a material that cat nails can penetrate, therefore scratching is not enjoyable.

Cleaning

  • Microfiber does not easily absorb dirt and dander from cats because of its texture. Cat hair will lay on the material without becoming embedded. A vacuum or lint roller should remove any hair.

Comfort

  • Microfiber is soft and comfortable for cats to lay on. Just because they won't enjoy scratching the fabric doesn't mean they won't enjoy sleeping on it.

Considerations

  • All cats are different, so their reactions to microfiber could vary. For best results, provide a scratching post for the cat, keep its nails trimmed and coat brushed. Microfiber furniture will last longer if pets are well-cared for.
