When it comes to decorating your dwelling, think about including the necessary durable items for your Norwegian Forest Cat’s comfort and health. If you have already decorated your house, it’s better to update floor and wall coverings, add some furniture pieces and bedding, and install a special place for your fluffy Wegie to make the space pet-friendly.
You need to choose reasonable flooring and keep a safe environment for your furry Norwegian Forest Cat. When you consider different floor types, think about a waterproof and stain-resistant system that is easy to sweep, vacuum and wash, such as vinyl plank or waterproof laminate flooring. Take into account the durability of materials to withstand scratching and scuffing from your Wegie. That’s a great way to keep a stylish look for your abode without defects.
I’m sure that your cat dreams about a soft floor to make its leaps easy and safe, because the furry tufts of long hair between its paw pads make the pads glide. A textured polish like a grainy finish provides less slippage and improves the grip.
A bare floor is the most functional choice for your dwelling. In some cases, this could be pet-friendly enough. Keep in mind that most floor materials have certain drawbacks.
For tiles, they are rigid, cold, and slippery. If you install an underfloor heating system, the tile flooring gives a little bit of comfort for your fluffy friend. When we talk about laminated flooring, its disadvantages are a lack of noise-reduction and too rigid of a surface. Your lovely buddy could scratch a hardwood floor, sometimes vomit on it, and, as a result, you’ll experience lingering odors.
Carpet For Your Norwegian Forest Cat
Carpet with a low-cut pile is all about pet-friendliness. Pet-proof carpet features durability and stain-resistance. It’s easy to clean, especially if you have a good vacuum for pet hair. At times, use a pet-safe cleaner to keep your carpet in good shape without unpleasant odors.
When you consider various materials, choose nylon, wool, or polyester. It’s better to refuse loop, natural jute, or sisal carpets. It’s very hard to clean and vacuum them. Also, your furry bundle of joy could scratch or spoil these materials in other skillful ways.
Wegies like to take a nap or just relax in their own sweet area!
If wall-to-wall carpeting isn’t for you, a pet-proof area rug is a decent alternative to carpet. It’s better to choose a stain-resistant type, such as a polypropylene, PET, or wool rug. They are budget-friendly and durable.
Forget about shaggy rugs and sheep skins! It’s nearly impossible to clean deeply infiltrated dirt and long hair. Also, keep in mind that you’ll need dry cleaning almost every day. These are very expensive rugs for everyone who has a furry four-legged friend.
A rug is а covering for а small area which slips and changes its position when your Norwegian Forest Cat plays on it. It’s better to put a special mat underneath to keep a resistant position without needless movements.
Every cat thinks that each furniture piece in the home is only theirs. It has no doubts about the fact that your entire home is their living space, and theirs alone.
Give your Wegie a chance to lay, relax, or curl up on a pet-proof couch, bed, chair, or just a stool. Choose a cat-friendly couch made of durable fabrics with good pet hair resistance and which involve scratch-resistant finishes. In this case, it will be easy to clean!
A Plaid For Your Norwegian Forest Cat
I’m sure that your Wegie likes plaids. Maybe your furry buddy has its favorite one, scratches it, relaxes and sleeps on it.
A plaid is a pet-proof element and cozy décor item. The Norwegian Forest Cat on a plaid has harmonious look and emphasizes a hygge ambience (a Danish lifestyle concept) in your home with a Scandinavian signature.
If you don’t have a plaid, you need a soft one. Cozy up your abode and the Wegie will be delighted!
Choose The Best Materials
When you consider various materials for the upholstery and bedding, choose fabrics which resist moisture and most stains.
Microfiber is the most popular material for cat-proof furniture. It’s made of ultra-tiny polyester and nylon threads. The density of the fabric gives a couch or bed the ability to stand up to your Wegie’s claws.
How To Keep The Walls Tidy?
It’s better to refuse to use wallpapers in rooms where your furry friend likes to scratch them.
Paint the walls in your favorite tones! Also, you could add a pattern with all-over stencils. It’s all about a pet-proof home without spoiling the walls!
Think About A Specific Place For Your Norwegian Forest Cat
Of course, your Wegie likes curl up and sleep with you but sometimes it needs to just relax in its own place. Display your creativity to make your home a cozy, cat-friendly space.
Think about a shelf for your cat. These are some of the most popular pieces of pet furniture. You could DIY or just buy it.
When we talk about a budget-friendly place for your Wegie, bear in mind that every cat likes boxes. What could be better than to present to your furry buddy their own box? Place the box in the corner of the room, where your cat can keep itself to itself even more than usual.
If you are ready to buy a really comfortable, but expensive piece of furniture for your pride and joy, think about a cat tent with a soft mattress. It fits with every home!
Wegie Scratching Posts
Buying a cat scratching post is a great way to keep your Norwegian Forest Cat from scratching furniture. It’s one of the most important home accessories which show your dwelling as a pet-friendly place with a high level of comfort for both humans and felines.
There are many models of scratching posts on the market. Choose one with the largest area for scratching. Think about a functional side to make your Wegie happy!
I’m sure your cat wants to scratch more! Do you agree?
