When our pets have an accident it’s almost always on the carpet, rug, furniture or even items of clothing. If you’ve noticed this you may be wondering why they choose these areas over easy to clean tiles or wood floor. There are a few evolutionary theories and ways to prevent the pet accident from happening on the carpet.
For cats and dogs the carpet and soft textures are comforting. They can provide stability while your pet is vomiting. For young puppies they are often brought up in kennels where they are taught to go to the bathroom on puppy pads. Carpets resemble puppy pads and consequently they associate it with a safe place to go to the bathroom or vomit there.
Cats can associate carpets with territory. Square shaped items and structures are boxes and carpet, are perceived as closures to hide in or bring warmth and comfort. Carpets can also resemble grass or soil to come extent. In the wild cats will bury their vomit of feces. The connection is still there when they’re indoors.
Pet messes need careful carpet cleaning treatment. Until help arrives you should soak up urine spills with paper towels. Urine, vomit and poop can be dried with baking soda. This powder also helps reduce unpleasant smells.
Professional carpet cleaners use powerful cleaning equipment together with efficient cleaning solutions. For organic messes produced by your pet, enzyme treatment is needed to break down the mess. Eco-friendly cleaning solutions are also suggested to maintain your pet’s health.
