I am jonesing for the Haverty's Metropolis sofa... have cats, though they aren't terrible scratchers (prefer the wool rugs). But I think leather is a good choice, especially for those with allergies. No cat dander or hair that collects.

Also have newly acquired asthma and two cats am allergic to (we could start a club). Here are my go-to's. Shark steam/vac for the hardwood floors. No beater brush! No tangling of my long thick hair. Plus the steamI did have to declog it once in the 6 months I've owned it. Cost $150 at Target. For upholstery, I use the Fur Fighter by Scotch, also from Target with replaceable sheets. $8 initial outlay. I also use an electrostatic micro fiber cloth by Casablanca purchased at Whole foods. No chemicals. I've also found, believe it or not, that dragging my cross-trainers' edge, while on my foot, will scrape hair into piles on an area rug, for those who don't want to get down on their knees.
