Cat Scratches on leather

Cats are notorious for damaging leather furniture with their claws. Scratches leave light marks on dark leather and dark marks on light coloured leathers. They also leave the surface feeling rough. Repair products are available to camouflage the marks but the actual damage to the surface cannot be fully repaired.

Dog scratches and stains on leather

Dogs cause considerably less damage on leather. Sometimes dog’s hair can leave grease stains on the leather. Occasionally dogs can cause scratch marks on leather when ‘digging’ before laying down, although their paws are not as sharp as cat’s claws.
