Default I wanted to know what type of carpeting is good if you have cats? I heard not to get.

Great question! I have never heard that stain resistant carpet is harmful to pets. I also checked a reputable animal poison control website and a veterinary database and do not find anything there. When having carpet installed, I would definitely keep your cats away as the fumes could be detrimental but stain resistant carpet is likely ok.

When I was little enough to sleep with my twin brother inside my human's bedroom slipper, the human made me a scratch post wrapped in a scrap of carpet. My claws stuck to it like Braer Fox stuck to the tar baby. I couldn't retract my claws enough to let go of the tight nylon loops. Maybe it was just my lack of experience, but I think humans should submit a carpet sample to us for approval before they purchase a bunch of it.
