If you want your pet to hang with you on the sofa or enjoy it while you’re away, but don’t want to subject your sofa to the extra wear and hair, then a pet sofa throw could be the answer.
You can put any old blanket on your sofa, but one that’s made for it will look much nicer. Sure Fit pet sofa throws can even be personalized with your pet’s name! They’re made of quilted soft suede. And, the big plus, they’re machine washable. Sure Fit makes the one-piece throws for chairs, loveseats and sofas.
I featured these throws, which come in taupe or chocolate, in December (Personalized Pet Sofa Protectors), but I’ve since had the chance to try one out for myself. Disclosure: I received a free pet throw from Sure Fit for review.
The pet throw which I received is for a loveseat, and it’s the chocolate color shown above. The Sure Fit website says that the pet throw drapes over your furniture, but to get the look above, you’ll need to tuck it in a bit. That’s easy enough to do, but it will come untucked too, so there’s a bit of maintenance if you want it to look neat. My throw wasn’t personalized, but I think that could be a nice touch.
While the throw provides great protection for furniture, it’s not too thick and bulky. That means you can fit it inside your washing machine with ease. Since I don’t have a dog, I can’t comment on that aspect, but my cats have been glued to this pet throw. Do they put catnip on it? They just seemed to know that it was for them. The throw has helped to keep hair off of my furniture and to prevent my kitten from chewing the buttons on the back cushion. Yeah, the button chewing kitty is throwing me for a loop!
