It was time to either let the chair go to crap or bring it back to life. We chose the second option. We went to the store to look for some fabric. I like the feel of flannel so we found a leopard print piece. With zero upholstering experience, we bought a few yards of the fabric and a staple gun.
I wasn't sure how Niko would react to such a drastic change to his beloved chair. So, I made it a slow transition. (I also didn't get enough fabric so we had to wait a few days to complete the project)

Here he is, in his "cave." He's very territorial about this space; he growls if you try to invade his space when he wants to be left alone.
Here's the finished product:
