There is this little joke that goes on around our house. It has to do with carpet. You see for some reason we can never have carpet that stays new for more than one week before utter disaster strikes.
It never fails. Our first house in North Carolina the carpet was new for approximately ten minutes before our dog ran in the house with muddy feet. If that weren't bad enough, David yelled at her and she got scared, squatted and peed on it. Yep, ten minutes after it was put in. Nice.
Then there was our second house where we moved in and a week later David spilled red Koolaid right in the middle of the living room. Nice.
Then there is our current home where a combination of scented candles and gas fireplace logs caused soot rings to form around every single thing that touched the carpet. Nice.
Also in this house was new carpet in the bedroom that David got automotive grease on to which I tried to get out and it grew and then the professional carpet cleaning people made grow even more! Nice.
So now I bring you to the new carpet in our bedroom. I had lived with those rotten spots for the past five years. Two Friday's ago I had new carpet installed in our bedroom, or should I say, "The room Sabrina allows us to sleep in."
I was super happy with the carpet, but Sabrina was not. She was upset and wouldn't eat. I was thinking the smell might be bugging her as she kept laying on their whirlpool instead of on the bed.
So she and I (along with her stuffed mouse collection) slept in the guest bedroom for a week. David had been away on business if you were wondering where he was.
So after a week, she and I and the mouse collection moved back into the bedroom. She still hadn't eaten very much in a week and I start going into panic mode. I'm use to having bunnies and if bunnies don't eat within 24 hours they can become very, very sick and even die. So after 6 different food options for Sabrina I finally found one she would nibble at again. After day two of being back int he room, she seems to be eating pretty well. I am so happy until...yep, you guessed it. She puked up the new food all over the new carpet. One week from install to stain. Nice.
(Bunnies, like horses, cannot puke)
The good thing is, I got most of the stain out and only a keen eye can see where it was. Sabrina is also doing much better and eating food that seems to agree with her stomach. Although, I have learned that apparently cats puke all the time. So much for new carpet. Nice.
Light, love and hugs,
Michelle, the Bunnies and the Puking Cat too
