Paula, with all due respect, you'd have the same problem if someone ripped a cloth sofa.

We have leather at my house, and I have very few problems with it. Yes, you stick to it on occassion. But cat fur doesn't stick to it, and that's a plus for me. It's easily cleaned, fluids roll right off instead of sinking in as with upholstery (no stair remover for me!) and, as I recently found out, you can change the colour of them if you decide you don't like it! We just finished redying our couches that we've had for 10 years, and they look BRAND NEW. Unbelievable. Fairly time consuming (ok, it took about 3 evenings - not all that bad) and it cost less than $300 for a full-size sofa and a loveseat. If anyone is interested in seeing other pictures or the website, let me know. It was part of my "while my parents are out" redecorating project (which, by the way, resulted in a red family room!)
"Is ice hockey hard? I don't know, you tell me. We need to have the strength and power of a football player, the stamina of a marathon runner and the concentration of a brain surgeon. But, we need to put all this together while moving at high speeds on a cold and slippery surface while 5 other guys use clubs to try and kill us. Oh, yeah, did I mention that this whole time we're standing on blades 1/8 of an inch thick. Is ice hockey hard? I don't know, you tell me. Next question."
