This is a sponsored post written by me. I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for STAINMASTER. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating. #UnShameYourPet
Mr. Savvy and I only have fur kids, but we still sometimes get to deal with things that so many awesome parents experience daily. You know, never getting to use the bathroom alone, always having someone want your food, oh, and, the 3 P's. Poop, pee and puke. Right now we only have cats so we are pretty lucky that we don't have to deal with the pee and poop on the carpet most of the time, but accidents do happen. Puke on the other hand...well, thank God for paper towels. And for vacuums that really suck (literally) for all that fur. I always laugh at the pet shaming captions about dirty carpet because I can relate so well!
Charlie is the quirkiest cat I've ever had, but I about died when I witnessed this!
We still love our cats dearly, of course, and wouldn't give them up for anything. But, sometimes it feels like it's almost a part-time job just trying to keep the carpet looking nice. Did I mention that the only areas in our home without carpet are the kitchen and the 2 bathrooms? We tend to hang out by the TV in our living room or office the most, so those tend to be the most targeted areas for the 3 P's. Luckily, when I catch the spots early, it's not too bad. But, I did learn the hard way that there are dyes in cat food that can actually turn your carpet a yellow or even pink color if left too long to set in, which can unfortunately easily happen if you happen to be gone to an event or work all day. Sadly, it seems once the stains have set this way, there's no real way that I've found to get the stain out, other than to replace a section of the carpet.
Tidbit and I have a special connection since I found her mewing outside at 5 to 6 weeks old, but she drives me nuts with her food addiction!
Because of all the dyes and such, pet stains tend to be a bit different from the typical kid and every day stains, so I always thought it would be neat to have a carpet that was made to specifically protect against pet stains. Which is why I thought it was so awesome to recently learn about STAINMASTER's PetProtect carpet! Here's a few of the reasons why I'm totally in love with the idea of this carpeting.

Chewie is such a handsome and awesome cat, but I'm honestly not sure I'd ever want another long-haired cat. ;)
Did I mention that I'm totally in love with the idea of this carpet? Since our cats like to act more like dogs and are rather clingy and like to be where we are, I would love to replace all of our carpet one day with STAINMASTER's PetProtect carpet. It just may keep me from wanting to include Tidbit in a shaming caption one day!
Do your pets leave the 3 P's all over your carpet? What's been your worst pet mess?

A combination of shaming and peer pressure might work. Take kitties picture and add a caption of her misbehavior. Post her captioned picture on a cat-shaming site and bring her over to see what has been posted publicly. Tell her that the cat community visits that site to see what naughty kitties have done. She will be so embarrassed by her bad behavior being exposed that she will never do it again.

I miss having a cat, but can't say I miss the messes she used to make.

I dont have any furry friends in my home but I have family and firends who do. I'm sure dealing with the 3 P's can't be fun but sounds like the STAINMASTER’s PetProtect carpet is the way to go for pet owners
