🍩 Cushions and fabrics
After years of testing, we've settled on a selected few fabric style choices. They are all high-quality upholstery grade fabrics made to last and withstand a lot of wear and tear.
The best and most visually appealing fabrics were velvet-like. They're made to last and have low maintenance. They can easily be vacuumed for regular upkeep and can be spot cleaned with usually just a damp cloth and a bit of elbow grease. We have 3 kinds of velvety fabrics, they are all thick and luxurious. What makes them ideal for cats is that they are closely woven fabrics with threads cut to give the fabrics a short pile. This is why the fabric releases the hair easily, rather than trapping it in like traditional woven fabrics. Also, most cats don't like to claw it because it lacks that woven texture and they can't see the damage, there are no loose fibers, and it's not rugged. It's a superior material and one of the comfiest. The outer soft texture discourages them from scratching in the first place. We found a way to work around their instincts.
Our fabrics come in 3 styles: Lapaz - our classic fabric that has proven over time to offer great durability with simple maintenance, Fox - a moleskin pattern fabric with properties similar to Lapaz, and Titan - classical lush thick velvet that is also water repellant and suitable for outdoor use.
For the special needs kitties, the ones with bladder and other physical issues we have an option of outdoor-grade water-resistant fabrics (please contact us as the colors and patterns change)
We use high-density polyurethane foam as it has proven itself as the best option for support and comfort and it's also a long-lasting foam that lasts for years without losing its shape. It has gone through extensive years-long testing in the homes of our customers, but more so in the homes of local NGOs, we work with and in our home. The cold-molded polyurethane foam acts just like a human-grade mattress and helps support your pet's joints and bones by distributing the mass evenly on the cushion. Comfort is crucial for cats that are getting older or those who are recovering from illness or injury. As they get older their bodies lose muscle tone and circulation in the extremities diminishes and the healing slows down. Older cats develop joint problems and have a harder time getting up and down as they age. Overweight and obese cats have also more stress on the joints which leads to developing arthritis earlier in life. By providing comfortable places for rest, we're giving them a far better quality of life and it's just from the benefit of extra padding and warmth. The foam doesn't go flat, it conforms to the cat's body, which means it is flexible and durable. Dense foam cushions the joints and eliminates pressure points.
Our cushions have no zippers, or buttons as those haven't been ideal for often washing and cleaning. All cushions and hammocks are removable and everything is machine washable at lower temperatures. Also, the oils from your pet's fur go deep into the cushion so washing just the outer cover shouldn't be a good enough option as all the parasites we don't see get into it so with animals it's always best to wash the whole thing. All the cushions are small enough to fit into standard washing machines.
Cushions are held on the surfaces by long and wide hook and loop fasteners. They're not visible when placed in their places and don't tear or shrink during regular washing. They are firmly attached so you don't have to worry about your cat falling off the furniture.
❇️Cat furniture could and should look like our furniture, and complement the room it's in.
👩⚕️Also, if you are allergic to cats(or better saying allergic to cat saliva, urine, and dander) or have guests who are allergic, wouldn't you want the space to be easy to clean, without shaggy carpets and fuzzy textiles that trap the allergens in.
That's why our furniture is fine-finished, our cushions are removable, replaceable, and can be washed regularly. You can always have a spare set to change when allergic people come over. Reducing exposure to cat dander is the key. So vacuum and air out your space before guests come over.
We don't need to slave over things. It's just like keeping clean your furniture and your sofa. Vacuum, damp cloth, and mild detergents and you're golden.
Opt for a vacuum with HEPA filters if you can, because regular filters may not be fine enough to catch allergens.
