I adopted an 8 month old torty tabby in Jan. We are adusting to each other's strengths and weaknesses nicely.

In winter, I've always slept under a feather down comforter in a light green flannel duvet cover. My new cat shares my love for down comforters, and leaves black, brown and white evidence of her approval all over it. No brush, no vacuum, no sweeper, no washing machine can remove the hair that has somehow woven itself into the flannel.

Does any one have suggestions for fabrics for a bedspread or duvet cover that are easy to maintain with a cat in the house? Any ideas for colors or textures that hide hair?

Satin is really easy to brush cat hair off of. However, claws easily snag this fabric so it may not be the best choice. Maybe sateen cotton would work better - I think it would be less-snagging but still have that satiny finish that doesn't "absorb" cat fur like flannel seems to. Not sure about colors!! Maybe a taupe color?

I have a light yellow, stripey, regular cotton duvet. It gets cat hair on it, but it doesn't seem to be too noticeable. My cat is also black, brown, and white. There's nothing I can wear that doesn't show cat hair, so I just consider it an accessory.

I got it at Target and for the life of me, I can't find a pic of it on their website.
