I bought an expensive, and disappointing, sectional slipcover. It was a disaster. My goal is to keep cat hair and cat claws off my new sofa. These sheets are nice and thick, very soft, easy to wash, and fit my needs perfectly. I just laid it across the seats and tucked in the back. The color is almost identical to my couch so you would not necessarily notice it. Easy solution to a potentially expensive problem, and the cats enjoy curling up on them.
