Slipcover for Upholstered Bed?

Good Questions

Q: Hi there friends, I was originally inspired to purchase my Carpe Diem bed after tons of research (much of it done on this website) two years ago, before I had my awesome kitten, baby Butters. Butters is only 6 months old, and unfortunately has taken a liking to scratching the life out of my GORGEOUS bed.

I love this guy, but this bed was an enormous investment for my husband and I, and we love our bed so so much! I have been trying to do some research on slipcovers for beds like this, and not even the guy who sold it to me could offer me a great solution (he's wonderful though! It's just a tough question, but if anyone ever asks, definitely buy your bed from Jeff Klein--he has a superb business).

Any ideas where I could get some sort of slipcover for the headboard and the base of my Carpe Diem (Malo/King size equivalent), made of fabric strong enough to protect my beautiful bed? So far I can only think of having an upholstering place custom make something for me, or a local seamstress, but both of those solutions just sound pricey. I know Carpe Diem doesn't have anything, but isn't this an issue with these kinds of beds? I mean the upholstery can't possibly last as long as these beds are meant to (what with the messy/destructive creatures life brings our way so often like babies and animals). I know the solution would ideally be to keep our kitten out of our room. That was the original plan, but it just hasn't worked out very well. He's really really cute and pretty much has owned the place since day one.
