I lucked out with the most recent second hand sofa that I bought off of
craigslist.  Not only are the arms and legs carved wood and thus harder to
destroy by clawing, all the seat and back cushions zip off for laundering.
And the upholstery fabric is really thic, apparently impervious to urine.
I've already gotten two years out of this couch and matching chair and I
may have it for a couple more.

  We bought beautiful new living room furniture in January and it was
promptly covered in plastic and ugly homemade (I winged it and made them
out of duck cloth) slip covers that can be washed.  Once all the
"pisser" have passed on, we can uncover the furniture, but not until
that happens ;)

 Invaders from the XION Universe came down and changed my kids into cats.
If you don't like my kids looking this way, go to the XION Universe and
file a complaint.  Furrever in love with cats.

Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty
neighbors too!

  Someone actually surrendered a dog to the shelter where I used to work
because they got new furniture, and the dog no longer matched.

As for myself - I've given up. The sofa is covered with plaid furniture
protectors with a waterproof vinyl backing that I got from Bass Pro Shops.
I also use inexpensive plastic-backed canvas dropcloths from Home Depot.
Eventually the plastic gets shredded, but they're easy to wash and cheap to
replace. My mattress is covered with a mattress protector and a blue tarp
over that. Sheets are changed daily, since I sleep with two dogs and a
multitude of cats.

Most of my friends have multiple cats and dogs, but those who don't and
can't accept my pets are free not to visit. I saw a doormat somewhere that
read:  "For visitors who don't like my pets: They live here. You don't." I
need to buy it.
