When I was searching for a slip cover, I purchased one that was not what I expected and was dissappointed because almost all covers that I was looking at were the same. I came across this one & thought "Let me try it" we have a cat & kids. Alot of people purchase this product because they have dogs but I believe it benifits all. What I like is that it has a little weight to prevent it from slipping & it has a nice comfortable feel & look. So even if you have pets or not, kids or not if you want a cover that is quick to put on & off & wont slip off too easy, this is the one.
