Couch Cover to protect from cat scratching...

Question:
I'm looking to buy a couch cover to protect my leather couch from my cat's claws. Does anyone have any advice on a good material to shop for? Any advice on this is welcome.
Not all of the scratches are deliberate - some are just from her back claws when she jumps off the couch.
Thanks!

Answer:
Use soft claws on front ones and trim back ones.
The Soft Claws are great.

Petsmart carries these adhesive strips to put on furniture, countertops, etc. -Called "Sticky Paws. I've known a few people who have had great sucess using them. And they won't damage or leave a sticky residue on your sofa.
And for $8.99 you get 24 strips:
A few other things I would recommend: Scratching posts and scratching pads -Plus a handy dandy water squirt bottle.
Good luck!

Answer:
I read someplace that for some reason, cats seem to hate Ultrasuede. Maybe find a sample swatch and see if your cat avoids it, before investing in a large amount.
By the way, ebay is a great place to buy fabrics.
Also, if shedding is a problem, buy a sofa cover that matches your cat’s hair color. You should avoid loosely woven fabrics that beckon claws.

Answer:
I have Surefit slipcovers for my couch and chair. Actually have 2 for each which makes it easier to keep it covered even when one is in the wash. I have 6 cats and they never scratch on the covers.
