First, it is not so much a carpet as an area rug that was liberated from the Crate & Barrel outlet for $19.
Second, it is not so much bloodstained as adorned with a quarter-sized splotch of cat barf.
Third, rather than clean it, I am going to take it to be burned.
Fourth, the cat is going into regurgitation rehab if this keeps up. In Wyoming, or some other place that’s very far away.
Look at your own blog from time to time. The Google ad of the day is “Sears Carpet Cleaning.” Sears can make that $19 rug sparkle like new, and they will also kill your cat and make it look like an accident. They did this for a neighbor of mine once.
What if I don’t want the cat killed so much as publicly shamed?
