Room Makeover: Potential Disaster!!!


Our new workspace project has been put under threat by a cat. 😦

This beautiful  feline decided to enter Chez Boardman for a visit, much to Pesky Kids delight. Unfortunately he liked what he saw so much that Pesky Cat decided to mark his new-found territory in the manner that cats do.

Despite my best efforts the living room carpet is now a smelly write off and we are desperately trying to clarify if this disaster is covered by our contents insurance. If not, we will be forced to cancel our makeover. Watch this space for updates.lineup_cat

UPDATE: 00:48 GMT

 It’s no use. After numerous attempts at trying to solve the problem we had no choice but to remove half of the carpet in an attempt to rid ourselves of the evil smell. Tomorrow we begin the process of spending our precious savings, not on the beautiful items we envisaged, but on a cheap bit of cotton twist. September Room Makeover has been thwarted…by an incontinent feline. 😦

    Try washing the area with white vinegar and water mixture, gets the smell out of the wood, our carpet guy said and it worked for us. Best wishes, sorry about the make over. Move the furniture around so it almost feels like a makeove. Cheers! Nadine

    Did you try Nature’s Miracle? It’s the only thing I’ve ever found that takes that smell out.
