Critters and me
I had accidentally bought cans of Resolve high traffic pet cleaner when I meant to get the spot cleaning stuff the other day.
( No readers on, it happens when you can't read the small print) I was glad that I had the product on hand to at least try to get the staining and smell out. You have to vacuum first and then spray 3 foot square sections and scrub with a damp mop. Then let it dry and vacuum it again. I moved the loveseat to the middle of the room and cleaned most of living room and all the hallway. (That is where Skyler does pukers and why I need spot cleaner.) I think it is better and I don't see any stains. I had been considering calling in a professional carpet cleaner and getting a quote for doing the job but this was a cheap alternative. The kitchen was also given a much needed sweep and mop while I was at it.
I've forgiven Oscar, of course. Who can resist that imploring look I was getting? Strangely, he has done much better today about letting me know he needs to go out and we have walked about every two hours or so. He and Skyler both have been rolling in one particular spot on the floor I suppose to mark it with their own scent but NO leg lifting was observed.
I had intended to get started on the zip zip bags today since I realized that I did not need to have the webbing or the handles till the very last step. You know, something fun after all that strenous housework? BUT I got side tracked.
A few days ago I had removed the foam pad I was trying on my bed. It might have helped my back but the
I decided today that I would cut up the pad or at least the sections that were unrippled so I could replace the thin little pad in Oscar's crate. I used multi-purpose spray adhesive to adhere two layers together. I picked up some decorator weight yardage to make a pillow cover and another small fleece throw ($2.88) and a couple of 22 inch zippers to do the job. The camo is just like the one he uses in his bed and he loves it. Often he crawls up under and gets himself so wrapped up you wouldn't even know he was in there!
That is about the only creative thing I have done in days. The days have gone quickly since I last posted but I am not exactly sure just how. Living life, I guess.
Oscar is awake and whining. Best go see what's the matter.
ED: He needed out and told me. Good boy! I put his new pad in the bed and the skimpy one with the sheepskin cover I made earlier this year will be laundered and set aside for backup.
