You might -- or might not -- remember Jan's trials and errors with covering this unsealed wood floor that is splintering from the humidity. Well, you certainly remember our post on the splinter under her fingernail. Dr. Buddy was quite helpful in removing it. The splinter, not the fingernail.
Jan tried several types of carpet in here, including indoor/outdoor, but none of them worked. She finally gave up. But when she was putting the new chair together for our next review, she turned it on it's "face" and when she set it upright again, the material was coated with very small splinters. That scared her because we all sprawl on the floor. When her brother was here he turned the chair over to tighten the screws and the same thing happened.
This time Jan went to a carpet place and checked out linoleum and carpet remnants. She checked the weight of both and there was no way she could get either out of the car and carry it, or lay it by herself. She decided on a thick area rug. It went from tailgate to dashboard and was a struggle to carry up the steps. Not for us. We just watched.
Here's Sam testing the new carpet.
Jan says we'll have it tracked with red clay and stained with hairball barf in no time. We say we'll just make it look homey. And if we run out of groceries next month, we can always eat the rug. Surely carpet is on the list of approved fiber sources for furries.
Have a purring and tail wagging day.
