    go to a fabric store...they have faux leather, upholstery fabric, etc... cover ALL or one of your chairs this way...just add batting...flip the chair over and staple the fabric to the bottom side of the! easy! If it weren't a rush chair, you probably wouldn't need to add batting, just cover the entire seat up with fabric...

    Lightly sand it and stain it

    Rush seats can’t be fully repaired, but you can actually re-weave the rush.

    Buy kitty a sisal scratching post, and spray the chair with cedar oil after cleaning throughly to remove kitty's glandular secreations.
