On Friday night, my wife and I bought a steam cleaner to combat a year of “snot shrapnel” our sneezer-of-a-cat Emma has added to our home.
I spent two days cleaning just about everything that was made of fiber (carpet, furniture, pillows, etc) and finally feel like I can walk barefoot in my own home without visualizing that I’m walking on dried up cat mucous.
Recognizing all of the effort I was putting in to re-sanitizing the home, Emma even helped out by actually licking up a three-inch string of snot she snorted out on the hard-wood floor. Good kitty. Truly disgusting, but appreciated.
