This past week Mak “gifted” me two large puddles of diarrhea. Upon opening the door, I immediately noticed something did not smell kosher. He was also less celebratory that dad was home. I wish I’d photographed his handiwork because it was more gruesome than any of the online images I found, aside perhaps from the above… though that appears to be linoleum rather than carpet.
In retrospect I believe he might have shat after I pulled in the driveway and before I came in. I’d fed him a variety of scraps the previous night, and he just couldn’t hold it! 🙂 In fact, he might have deposited the second batch by the front door while the deposit in the study was taking my breath away. I suspect I would either have smeared the front door deposit with the door, stepped in it when I came in, or at least noticed it had it already been there. The baffling part is that the front door deposit also had a couple of solid log sections and a spattering of corn kernels. Yup, it’s corn season. And one would imagine the firm stuff came out first.
It took me a couple hours to clean. I don’t have a rug shampooer and used a wet/dry tank vac instead. Much of the two hour time was devoted to repeated emptying and hosing out the tank vac between rinse applications. I deodorized using Nature’s Miracle.
I found this helpful video and followed its protocol. Thanks so much to whoever posted this helpful vid!
