There is one rug in my entire apartment located in the hallway. While it was on sale at West Elm, it was still a bit of a splurge for me. I love it. The cats also love it as evidenced by their incessant frolicking and rolling around on it like they are Tawny Kitaen in a Whitesnake video.
So imagine my surprise when I come home last night to discover the rug bunched up like they were practicing moon walking on it while I was out working. When I straightened it out I saw that someone had puked on it. On my brand new West Elm rug that wasn’t cheap. On my yellow rug. Brown puke.
(Insert expletives here.)
After all the swearing was said and done, I googled some rug remedies and thought I’d try some baking powder on it. Um, no. That wasn’t my brightest idea ever since this isn’t like regular old carpet you have installed in your house. So now I have a white-ish spot where the brown-ish spot used to be.
I’m currently soaking that section in a sink full of water hoping to get the baking powder out of it and eventually have my beautiful rug back. Fucking cats! The entire house is hard wood flooring and they have to puke on the lone rug? Good thing they are cute and I am against animal cruelty because one of them could have “accidentally” fallen out of an open second story window.
