I’ve had at least one cat throughout most of my life. Sometimes just one, but usually two or three.
Right now, our family has three cats: Mouse, Monkey and Max. Mouse and Max are fairly calm cats, who love to curl up in a sunny spot and nap the afternoon away. I can rarely find them at night, because they’ve curled up under a bed or hidden in a closet to sleep.
But Monkey is different.
Monkey is our “kitten”, though she’s really not a kitten anymore.
She’s definitely the most playful of our cats. Monkey attacks our feet while we sleep and jumps out at us as we walk by, scaring us and making the kids jump. She also loves to play with toys, whether the toys are balls of twine or feather toys she’s supposed to play with or ordinary household items that she’s not supposed to touch.
Like ornaments and lights on a Christmas tree, for example.
But one of the most frustrating things that Monkey does is making a mess.
She knocks over drinks on purpose, spilling tea, milk or soda onto the floor. She attacks and rips apart stuffed animals, ripping their stuffing out with her back paws. And, worst of all, she gets sick.
Monkey will eat until she gets sick. We limit her food and feed her on the wood floor in the kitchen, but at least several times a week, she runs for carpet and gets sick. :/
We’ve taken her to the vet, who says she’s fine and apparently just eats too fast. So while I’m happy that she’s OK, I’m not thrilled about trying to clean the carpet several days a week.
Our carpet seems to absorb stains, even if I immediately try to clean it. I’ve tried many cleaners and even a sealant-type product that was supposed to repel stains, but it just doesn’t seem to work. No matter how clean I get the carpet, I just can’t seem to get some of the stains out.
My husband and I have talked about replacing all of the carpet in the next year or so to end the problem once and for all. This time, we want to use the STAINMASTER® PetProtect™ carpet and cushion system.
STAINMASTER PetProtect is exactly what this family needs. It was designed to resist pet stains and to even release pet hair so vacuuming is easier and faster. Not only that, but the STAINMASTER PetProtect system helps keep spills and accidents from soaking into the cushion and subfloor, so it reduces odors when cleaned. It’s even color safe and can be cleaned with powerful cleaners!
I’m ready to get rid of our old carpet and get the carpet that can stand up to Monkey’s spills and accidents. With the STAINMASTER PetProtect carpet system, we’ll have cleaner, fresher smelling and longer-lasting carpet. I can’t wait!
