So, Lily decided that she was gonna Kitty No No the front wall by the front door. And an entire bottle of Nature’s Miracle for Cats barely put a dent in the stain and odors (other folks swear by it, and I saw a video a friend posted on Facebook that made an absolutely huge bloodstain on her carpet disappear in less than 20 seconds. But me? Not so much, the stains are too set-in….)
After my initial freakout, as is my wont, I figured charging a carpet cleaner would be the way to go. But, lo! A friend sent me a Pet SpotBot as an early birthday prezzie! Love, love, love the idea that I can set it and have it do the scrubbing. Again, since the stains are set-in, even a repeat go-over of each stain area didn’t completely remove the scent. Luckily said friend will be coming over this weekend to meet the kitties and help me with sniff-testing. If all else fails? Pay a professional, and/or get that carpet torn up and replaced. I could probably do it myself (there are tons of sites that tell you exactly how to do it), and since I want to put hardwoods down anyway? It’d be a perfect DIY project for me to try, since even if I completely FUBAR it? It’s getting replaced in a year or two!
