The problem and the cause

We could have just re-upholstered the sofa but Andy would have possibly/probably tore that up sooner or later.
Thus the solution given that my hobby is woodworking.

In our house that couch would really be welcome….all our cats ( about 30 or more) have their own inside (about 20’X26’) and outside enclosed (about the same size) but in our house are 7 dogs who no longer tear up things but sure do love to lay everywhere. Yep, animals run our life

Thanks to all for your comments. Saturday was a black cloud day for woodworking- my first go at Cosman’s dowel hinges was a fail, thus stayed away from LJ until this AM.

You don t want to hear my solution! ;-)

Papadan, Andy’s a great cat. Sofa vandalism is pretty much his only bad habit. Over the years, cat ownership has been a great excuse to not buy fancy carpets or upholstered furniture.

The one daughter has a cat and a couch and I’m thinking this is the answer.

Thanks Marcial.
