You’ve probably noticed his picture on my sidebar.
And you might have seen the photo of him “relaxing” on Labor Day.
You’re probably thinking, “Awwww…he’s so sweet!”
It’s all just an illusion.
Let me show you what TROUBLE this sweet, innocent face is capable of getting into!
Once upon a time, this had been SEVEN cans of cat food.
Seven UNOPENED cans of cat food.
Seven LARGE unopened cans of cat food.
I would have loved being a fly on the wall watching him open those cans. It looks like he became more adept at getting them open as he went along. Notice the three cans in the middle are totally mangled. The one on the far right is only half mangled. The three on the left look like he just basically “popped the top”!
Ahhhh, but I digress from the point of this post.
This is what my carpet looked like after that sweet, innocent face got done decimating those cans of cat food in my absence.
A little of what you see all over my carpet is cat food.
Most of it is blood from his tongue and gums, where he laid in different places and chewed those cans open.
Don’t worry. Although it looks like a massacre occurred here, Bo was actually fine. No worse for the wear, if you can believe that!
However, I wasn’t sure my carpet would ever be fine again though.
I wanted to cry.
Allow me to share with you what saved my carpet…
and Bo’s a - - !
First, I pre-treated the carpet by spraying all the spots with Woolite Oxy Deep spot remover.
This stuff is so good that if I spray it on a small spot and walk away to let it sit for a few minutes, I often can’t even find the spot when I come back to wipe it up. It seems to magically effervesce small spots away.
Of course, with the amount of blood and cat food stains I was dealing with in this case, the spot treatment wasn’t going to effervesce those spots away on it’s own. It was necessary to follow up with the Woolite Oxy Deep cleaning solution in my carpet steam cleaning machine (which I absolutely could not live without because of situations like this).
These two products removed every trace of that blood and greasy/oily cat food.
Isn’t that amazing?!
Woolite Oxy Deep.
And so do I.
