Default Great big scratching post

If you don't think cats can dominate a household, we've had a gap in
our living room ever since we moved a comfy chair into the dining room
because the cats wanted it in there (it takes too long to explain).
This week we noticed a beautiful restored chair in a local upholstery
repair shop. It was on sale at a discount price, so we bought it and
set it in our living room. Two of our cats (who'll remain nameless)
strolled in, spotted the chair and made a beeline for it. You could
read on their furry faces what they were thinking: - "Aha! A big new
scratching post!" We quickly covered it with a sheet and headed for
the stores to find a chair throw for our purchase. No luck. So we
bought one on the Internet. It'll be delivered on Friday - for about
the same amount we saved with the discount on the chair. Cats!!!

I have several very nice chairs; hand made of solid oak and covered
with very nice upholstery by a local furniture maker. All three
chairs plus a cherry wood dining room set were given to me and dear
heart by the future MIL. All are covered with bedroom sheets to keep
the cats from scratching. It breaks ones heart to see all that
gorgeous furniture covered by tacky flower pattern sheets. On the
positive side, the sheets are flannel and the cats LOVE to snuggle in
to them to get warm - especially now 'cause the heat-pump died last
week! jemifur
