My cat is on the lazy and daft side-- a baby gate was up in the doorway of the cat bathroom, with the door as closed as possible without being hitched. I think he assumed it was inaccessible. (DOH!) On top of this, he had a tummy bug his system was working through. The result is he left a nice mud puddle of sick poo right in front of the bathroom on our bedroom carpet. I scraped it up best I could with bathroom tissue and dumped that in the toilet, then scrubbed scrubbed scrubbed w/ diluted vinegar. Still not satisfied that it was "clean", I dumped some Lysol on it, but immediately cringed because not only could my soon-crawler faceplant into pooey carpet, but Lysol. YUCK. But I am clueless how to get it all up. I also dumped some cat enzyme cleaner on there as a last resort thinking that would at least tame the smell. In my haphazard "cleaning", the area is obviously far from safe for my daughter.
What can I do to remedy the carpet and prepare it for my DD to trample on? What can I do in the future to fix cat nasty issues w/o dumping chemicals on them? Thanks!
