It's hardly fair to solely blame Zeus for the destruction of our couches, but he definitely had a paw in the game. This week I finally got fed up enough with the state of our couches, and I bought a new couch. My couches, also known as the cat scratching posts, were too damaged to donate– so instead I called the City of LA for a bulk pickup. I thought that witnessing cats scratching couches was the greatest act of aggression against furniture, but I stand corrected. I stood at my window and watched as the furniture was loaded into the garbage truck, which seemed more like a wood-chipper, and stood in awe as it crushed them! When I say crushed, this is no exaggeration– it was really crazy to see! If you have old destroyed furniture that is too far gone to donate, then it is worth contacting your city to see if they have a bulk pickup service available.
Needless to say, Zeus and friends are not being invited to take the new couch for a spin and will have to sharpen their claws elsewhere!
Have your dogs or cats destroyed any of your furniture? What solutions have you come up with?
