Sofa, Cat Toy, or Work of Art? The CatSofa is All Three

Thank you for your interest in CatSofa, the world’s only claw-friendly living room furniture.

How It Works


The CatSofa is an upholstered sofa with a twist — instead of a single layer of upholstery, the CatSofa features twelve layers of fabric in different, coordinating colors. When your cat scratches the sofa, she exposes hidden layers of upholstery, creating a stunning work of art. The more your cat scratches, the more attractive your sofa becomes!

Testimonials for the CatSofa

“I love it! I can’t wait to get home from work each day and see what the cats have done to my couch!”
— A.R., Des Moines, IA

“You don’t need a cat to love the CatSofa! My two-year-old likes to play with sharp objects, so the CatSofa plus an ice pick equals hours of entertainment for him. And I get to display his artwork in the living room instead of on the refrigerator!”
— W.K., Cambridge, MA

Order One Now!

The order process is simple — just select a sofa size and upload a picture of your cat. Our team of expert designers will select fabrics that coordinate with your cat’s coat, and our skilled craftsmen will create your custom, claw-friendly couch. Prices start at $50,000. If you have more than one cat, feel free to send pictures of all of them; however, there is a 10% surcharge for each additional cat, because of the extra work involved in fabric selection.

“I ordered a CatSofa over a year ago; they cashed my check promptly, but I haven’t heard anything from them since. They won’t respond to any of my emails, and when I try to contact them by phone, I get a recording saying the number is no longer in service”.
— T.W., Los Angeles, CA

  1. LOL . . . I’m guessing this would work for dogs who chew too?

    • Good question — we’ll have to run some tests. I’m not sure whether 12 layers of upholstery fabric will hold up to that kind of treatment, or whether we’ll have to use more layers or stronger materials.

  2. mmmarty says:

    lol! Does it come with a pouch where the cat can store his/her prey of the day?

    • We have something much better than a pouch — every CatSofa features UnderCouch Empty Space built right in and ready to use as storage for toys, prey, or other small objects.

  3. I had a cat that COMPLETELY shredded a chair once. She was 14 yeas old when she passed and i have never yet wanted another kitty. . . But the cat sofa is a great idea for doing something creative with a natural cat behavior! Move over Van Gogh and Warhol!

  4. “Chair Metamorphosis” sounds like an awesome work of art; your cat must have been exceptionally talented. I can understand why you might feel that no other cat could possibly live up to her legacy.

  5. Liza says:

    I need some cat furniture whose colors blend nicely with thrown-up cat food (mostly a mustardy-yellow) and hair balls (mostly tabby gray).

    • Good news — our designers can select fabrics that coordinate with just about any substance! When you place your order, include photos of all the substances you want to match (there will be a 10% surcharge for each). Photos only, please — no samples!

  6. […] sponsors. Please take a moment to check out these fine products from our first two sponsors: the CatSofa and the Squeaker 3000 Robotic Toy […]

  7. […] Day? Serve them a lovely homemade chicken and gravy dinner and give them a nice gift, like a CatSofa or a Squeaker 3000 Robotic Toy Mouse. Share […]
