My Cats Shed Too Much - How To Clean Up Cat Vomit with Vinegar and Water
Cat Barf or Cat Turd, that is the question... Only Vinegar and Water Will Clean This Mess
My Cats Shed Too Much - How to Clean Up Cat Vomit Using Vinegar and Water - My Story
If you have ever owned a cat, you will know that cats shed too much. As a result you have probably either seen your cat vomit or found what must be cat vomit in some inconspicous place in your home. Ultimately you either pretend you did not see it - so someone else finds it, or you end up cleaning up the cat vomit yourself. So how do you clean up cat vomit (some like to call it barf) - the secret is using vinegar and water.
So you may ask yourself, why me? Well it's actually not so bad or at least not as bad as it looks. Sometimes its like looking at the clouds above, you know when you try to picture what shape it closely resembles...In most cases, its hard not to look at cat barf and first try to determine if it is cat barf or cat turd. Somehow cat turd sounds worse than cat barf.
But here's a secret I'll share with you, when its a cat turd, you always know it, no second guessing. When you have to look at it longer than 2 seconds to make the final judgement, then its definitely cat vomit. The funny thing about cat barf is we do spend a lot of time looking at it when we first discover it. If only my cats did not shed so much, sigh!
First we ask ourselves, Is that cat barf on my favorite slippers? After the first 2 second look, once we have determined this is indeed cat barf, and not cat turd, we are pleasantly relieved that it is only cat barf. But then the sad realization creeps in that the cats barf is all over our slippers, or even worse - the carpet! I'll say it again, thanks goodness for Vinegar and Water.
If it is the slippers, its an easy decision, just throw them out right? But what if its your wife's slippers? Well don't throw them out and definitely don't hide them or throw them in the wash with all the other clothes, Eeeyewwww! If you hide them, I guarantee you'll be caught in a lie about it eventually, so don't even go there. So maybe just drop them in the toilet right, maybe flush once or twice to get the cat barf off, hey not a bad idea! Then you can throw them in the wash and no body will know.
But when the cat barf is on the carpet it's bad news. You can't possibly rip up the carpet and throw it in the toilet, so instead we find ourselves either walking away and hoping someone else discovers it first, uh well second in this case. But from my experience this stuff can sit there for days, its like a staring contest, whos going to blink first! And believe me the kids never blink. That cat barf will harden into replicas of all those chotchkys your mother in-law gave you over the years. Ah yes, there is no escaping cat barf duty.

How to Clean Up Cat Barf - With Vinegar And Water
So when you come to your senses and decide to take matters into your own hands, litteraly in this case, you start looking more closely at the menage et barf and start analyzing the contents. Sometimes it looks pretty straight forward, but the other times we are left forever mystfied at what exactly it is we have found. Grass is always easy to see, sometimes when they cough up a lot of fur, it looks like a dogs member if you know what I mean. That's probably the grossest one of all come to think of it. I know this, because at least once a month when I look out my front window, a dog is giving me a show on my front lawn, and then leaving me a present as a token of appreciation. I love dogs!
But why do cats vomit? Well I guess if I we're licking all of that fur and eating all that grass, I'd be inclined to do the same, and it wouldn't look any different either. Its enough to say that just thinking about it makes me glad its my cats and not me.
So how do we clean up cat vomit anyway? Its actually pretty simple, first put on some latez gloves. Mix a little vinegar in a glass of water, maybe 1 part vinegar to 4 parts water. Get some paper towel and grab the bulk of the cat barf with the paper towel and throw into the garbage. I would take this outside immediately, sometimes cat barf can be smelly, but rarely as bad as cat turd. Then pour the vinegar\water solution over the cat barf area on the carpet.
Using some old towels, gently press the towels into the dampened area, Always apply pressure, but never scrub the area. Repeat the process as needed, sometimes more stubborn cat barf stains will require a few douses of the vinegar\water solution and continued sponging of the carpet area. When done, you will know it, as their will be no stain or cat vomit residue remaining. You are now a certified cat barf expert!
