It’s no secret that I’m the resident cat lover here at HGTV.com. Don’t get me wrong, I adore dogs. But when I adopted my four-year-old cat, D’Artagnan, I became enamored by these sassy, independent animals. As someone who was raised with canines, I’m still figuring out my cat’s unique personality every day. I’ll tell you this, though: I’ve raised one cuddly cat.

But, as all pet owners know, creating a pet-friendly home is a key element to your pet’s happiness and your sanity. Here are some ways you can keep your home chic, stylish and comfy for your pets, too.

Cat on Bed

Buy washable fabrics. Pets have accidents. It’s just part of it. So, protect your bed by using duvet covers, cotton bed sheets and other durable fabrics that can be washed regularly.

Slipcovered Sofas

Slipcovers FTW! Until you’ve deterred Fluffy from using your beloved sofa as a scratching post, a durable slipcover will definitely do the trick. You can also look into purchasing a sofa made of Ultrasuede, a stain-resistant, machine-washable microfiber your cat will adore.
