On Your Sofa
“Would you like a hard floor or a cushy sofa? Cats prefer the cushy soft spot as well,” Reimers says. “I put throw blankets on mine for my cats, sprinkled with catnip or catnip spray to attract them to ‘their’ spot.”
Reimers even gave her cats their own sofa for ultimate relaxation. It’s placed in her sunroom, covered with cat toys, a cat cubby hole, and a cat bed, near a large window perfect for bird-watching. If your home lacks space for a full-size, felines-only couch, consider a window perch or comfy old chair you no longer use. Layer the piece of furniture with an old sheet, blanket, or throw cover, and your cat will never want to leave.
