The Smitty family owns a cat (whom I personally hate with nearly religious fervor), who tends to eat that which he should not. Given the resultant and inevitable puke in the middle of the carper, we have a spray bottle with a 1:1 mixture of white vinegar and water with a couple drops of orange scent to cover trhe vinegar smell. After picking and dabbing up the barf, a couple squirts of that on the puke spot, dabbed dry, usually does the trick.And then Mrs. Smitty tries to hide the cat so I don't do something I'll later regret.
Good news - our cat has eaten hotdogs and not puked, its the grass, a mouse or an entire bag of cat treats that normally gets him! I do find that white vinegar and water cleans it up easily, doesn't spot the carpet and takes away the cat puke scent. And the vinegar scent is pretty mild, you barely notice it.Good luck, and if they puke, may it be on tile! I always try to chase the poor vomiting kitty into the kitchen!
Smitty,I hear ya. I am not the cat person in the house... and now... I have 2 of them. Thanks for the vinegar tip guys!And in a horrific turn of events I just found one of them eating a part of the hot dog (from yesterday!) in the doorway to Kid's room. Which means they've had it stashed somewhere and have been dragging it around the house. Can't wait until the other pieces start to emit a stench. It will only add to the kitty litter...
Turns out this was a post just for the Smittys. ;)
Why do cat haters get cats? I often ask myself that as I refrain from kicking ours, who eats just about anything, from butter to plastic bags. My best advice is to keep them away from curling ribbon.
Deb,I did it for love... and I keep reminding him of it.Really, I promised the kids they could get a pet when we finally moved. But Kid & I are still actively grieving for Canine... for real... we both cry over him at least once a week. And I didn't think I was ready to move on with another dog. Mr F is a hardcore cat person and is thrilled to finally get some kittens. The kids are more indifferent to them than I expected.... they were excited about the prospect but I think they just don't offer the same emotional involvement. They are more like animals and less like furry human babies. ;)
