    Default Getting cat puke stains off carpet?

    We love our cats.

    Our cats love to puke.

    We have a Bissel Spotlifter, which is invaluable for cat owners, btw. It did the trick fantastically on the carpet we had in our last rental place. It was a plush, deep-pile off-white carpet, and a quick hit with the Spotlifter, loaded with the pet odor and stain remover formula, would remove any evidence that a cat shared their dinner.

    Now we're living with my sister and her husband. They also have plush, deep-pile off-white carpet, but a different variety. When our cats express themselves on this particular carpet, it leaves this faint orangeish stain that nothing wants to take up. So my sister has ServiceMaster come with their equipment, and they completely remove the stain in a couple minutes. That's a little pricey to do every time a cat pukes, but it indicates that there is, in fact, something that'll remove this stuff.

    Anyone know anything we can buy for home use that'll do the job?

    woolite pet stain remover worked quite well on any stain that my sisters puppy left on my white carpet!

    Oxyclean in a spray bottle with very hot water. Spray. Let sit. Blot with white towel. Repeat until towel no longer turns puke colour when you blot.

    Tip: never rub, always blot, it keeps the carpet from becoming 'fuzzy'.

    Really.

    I have both cats and a dog in the house and I've never found anything better than "Spot Shot" sold in most grocery stores. In fact, I've tried to find out what's in it without success.

    Seriously, that. What are you feeding your cats? Not only do cheaper foods lead to terrible stains, but more importantly, they can cause health problems down the line, such as diabetes or feline cystitis.

    Check your bag of dry food. If corn is the first ingredient, you're not giving your pets a healthy diet. Try something like Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul. Not that it's the only possibility out there. I found it to be moderately priced and better for my pets than Deli-Cat, which led to unable to be erased stains. Like Oberon alluded to, it's the dye that makes for the worst stains.

    I'm not a picketer for holistic cat feed, but I have been happy with my cats' reactions to this moderately priced and better fare. There are pricier and harder to find options.

    Again, I'm not a shill for Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul. I haven't even read the ubiquitous books associated with the name. I got a tip from another forum about the brand and I've been happy with the results. Actually, and more importantly, my horrible, vomiting cats have been happy with it. So has my carpet.
