Speaking of water breaking and cleaning up, today I am going to tape a bunch of chux pads together and put them under where I sleep and where I hang out on the couch all day.
I already have a sheet that I keep over the couch to keep it cleaner (the couch cover is washable, but won't fit into my washer so I take it twice a year to a laundromat.) I have a cat with a tendency to vomit, and both cats come in with muddy feet and whatever. Also, DH and I eat on the couch a lot and it invariably gets dripped on. So, I keep a sheet over it unless I have company.
So, the chux pads will be held into place by the sheet on the couch, and the sheet on the bed. The couch's sheet is in the wash right now, so I will do it later after it is dry.
Also, since the cats have been showing some signs of fleas, I plan to make little sachets of bay leaf and hide them under the couch sheet too, in the areas of the couch where the cats sleep. I hope that works.
