This is the solution for our living room. Minus the shaggy rug. We've tried out the pretty white flokati rugs (twice!) and anyone that has furry little ones should think hard before making that purchase. They don't go hand in hand, especially if one furry critter has territorial issues. Smell living rooms are not relaxing. Maybe something synthetic wouldn't seem like a big imposing cat trying to take over the room?
