Chair's biggest fan

We've had our new desk chair for about two weeks, and there is one family member who has logged the most hours on it... and it's not me, the one who works from home. No, I've been sent to the sofa with my laptop while Thisbe hogs the new chair.

 

Unfortunately the current fabric is a cat-fur magnet... so until we get it reupholstered (new fabric plus thicker/firmer foam on the seat to bump it up an inch or two), we're becoming fast friends with the vacuum and lint rollers.

Do your furry friends ever stage a take-over of new furniture?
