Claws for concern. Although this kitty has a nifty rope-wrapped pole, many cats find the natural scent and texture of grasscloth wallpaper irresistible for sharpening claws. If you have indoor cats, it may be prudent to install grasscloth wallpaper above a chair rail instead of the entire wall length.

If you are thinking about getting a cat, there are a few things you need to know. For starters be prepared to live with a few scratches and choose pet-friendly fabrics that are durable and easy to clean. Full story: So You Want to Get a Cat

Are you OK if your furniture gets a few scratches? Cats scratch. Plus, they're natural climbers and your furniture will become their jungle. If you care about your stuff, you’re going to want to protect it somehow. Because of this, Denberg says cats are a bit more difficult than dogs when it comes to interior design. "Cats get on furniture, are more invasive," she says. "They get on kitchen counters. Cats have more available cubic footage than dogs. They can get anywhere.”Most homeowners respond by giving cats other things to scratch on, which often satisfies this need. But while scratching posts are good, "nobody wants to look at them,” Denberg says. Plus, they don’t always prevent cats from testing out their claws on other things. If this is a problem, you might want to consider removing that precious piece of furniture for a while, or covering it. In this Philadelphia home, the owner wrapped a wardrobe post with rope for a design-minded alternative to the carpet scratching post.

While the vertical nature of the home suits the cat well, they wanted to avoid ugly scratching posts and other unsightly cat must-haves. Plenty of built-in perches allow McQueen to look out each and every window. Here, rope wrapped around the wardrobe pole suits McQueen's purposes in style.
