I just accidentally discovered that my cats were using our butterscotch colored leather couch for a nail scratcher.
There are small marks (you can't really see them, you can only feel them when you rub your hand across the seat).
Of course I have since covered the seat with a throw which I will remove when company comes, but I am heartbroken not to have noticed it before this.
Is there any possible way of getting rid of those scratches or is it a "live-with-it-and-forget-about-it" thing?
Much depends on the dying technique your sofa manufacturer used. If the dye goes deep into the hide, your scratches will be less noticeable. I'd contact the co. for recommendations especially if the sofa is not too old and/or call a local leather professional to see what can be done safely. BTW, if the scratches are superfical and minor, sometimes rubbing over them w/ your hand will deposit oils into the hide that will conceal them.
This is the sofa except that mine is the 78' 2-seater in light butterscotch. Does that help?

Arepo, when I purchased an Anilane leather ottoman from Dillards years ago, we were cat owners, so I asked the sales person this very question. She told me I should use a warm hair dryer on it to redistribute the wax and then run my hand across the scuff to flatten it.
This is one of the techniques mentioned in the article below. Hopefully, you will find something that addresses your particular problem.
Lady 50, this is wonderful advice.
Fingers crossed that all I need is my hair dryer and a willing hand to rub it.
Many thanks to you and Froo. (say, I'm a poet!)
