Earlier this week I mentioned how my husband and I started picking up the backyard. The weather has been so nice and we’ve been motivated to make things look good again. We’ve had an eyesore right at our patio for the past couple of months. My cat was using our house post as a scratching post… it was wearing down and discoloring and just looking awful. That’s when I had the idea to cover it with jute… I figured as Sophie, our cat, used it we could easily replace it when it needed an update again. Let’s face it… a cat’s gonna do what a cat wants to do.
