    Mine would leave pin and scratch marks on leather but they'd be ok with wood and fabric (strangely). However, I have in the past had to prevent them from getting onto the sofa, by closing the sitting room door, in case (during a call or a particularly competitive bout of top cat rivalry) they choose to mark "their " territory ... once a stain like that is placed, it is very very difficult to remove, whether from fabric or leather. :eek::eek:

    Thankfully my table legs and chairs are fine. However, despite the scratch post the sofa and arm chair get scratched. I'm not bothered though as it doesn't show that it's being scratched :D So lucky!

    I too saw the table leg scratch posts the other day :)

    I went in to pack up some nature diet for the dogs to see if they liked it (which they did LOL) and came across this secret treasure cave of cat stuff! My face equaled :eek:

    There was even bubbles (the kind you blow) which had catnip in them. I got some for Cotton :D
