We found a terrific high quality tufted leather coffee table leather ottoman bench thingie on consignment- this particular one runs around $500 retail. The leather is the soft non scratch kind in dark brown/ black. It looks brand new. We love the idea of it because we have a little human coming and it minimizes the worry about him getting hurt if he hits his head on it. It suits our need for a play table, changing table, foot rest and general decor item. The price it $140. Here is the rub: we have 3 cats.

Is it worth it? We hate to put out all that money for something they may just destroy, but we hate to pass up this steal. We could never afford a nice piece like this retail, but $140 is a lot of money for something the kitties may destroy. They love to claw at the fabric couch despite having a great scratching post. They are also very active and chase each other. I worry not so much about them wanting to purposely claw it, but the damage from spring boarding/ skidding on it. Experiences? Will the fact that this is high quality thick leather- as opposed to cheap thin leather- make a difference in the wear?
