cat scratches on leather couch, how to fix?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi! I'm new to this site and new to having cats in the house. They are actually my moms and have scratched up our leather couch and chair. Any tried and true methods to fix? thanks so much in advance.

Do you have plenty of scratching posts and or super scratchers? You need to just keep redirecting to what they're allowed to scratch. There are also soft claws. Little vinyl caps you glue to the nail, then they can scratch but not do any damage.

Something like this, I have something similar from target, that's cardboard and cheaper.

Yes we have cat tress and have put on the soft claws. They seem to work at redirecting (the chew off the soft claws!) I just was wondering how to fix the leather? I don't want to make it look worse!

We covered our leather dining chairs with fabric covers... Unfortunately there is no real fix. We just realised we would never buy leather again. My girls don't scratch it deliberately, their claws just dig in a bit when they run over the chairs.

There are people who can fix leather. If you have any upholstery shops in the area I would check with them. l have also seen a kit to buy that is supposed to match the color of the leather. What color is your furniture. I think some colors would be easier to fix like black or brown. But if I were you I would do my research. Unless it is torn, I think it can be fixed.

Do a Google search how to fix cat scratches on leather furniture. There are some sites with some suggestions. I read one at www.thriftyfun.com and it had a suggestion to use orange oil polish. Why don't you go to that website and read about it there.
