Question Carpet vs Hardwood floor

Question..........I've wondered this for years, right now I have hardwood floors and ceramic tile in my apartment, I have a very costly area rug in my livingroom and a area rug in the bedroom. Why does it seem like everytime the cats vomit they hit the carpet versus all the wood or ceramic surface area??? I once had a house with a big kitchen with a tile floor and wall to wall carpet through the house. Of course the bathrooms were tile but I had little throw rugs in them. Regardless the vomit would always hit the carpet, is there a reason for carpet vs flooring??? Vomit on the rug is harder to clean and it seems to stain, which really bites...............Paulette

I have all wood floors and cermic,the only carpet is in my bedroom.But I do have small mats by the kitchen sink and back door,and they have often vomited on them,but they're washable ones.Hmmm,you got me wondering now.The other day my son didn't put the ironing board away,so Dylan jumped up onto it,her son Bolan was on the floor below it,all of a sudden Dyl started to vomit!!! You guessed it,all over Bolans back.It was dreadful trying to wash it off him,poor thing.xxxxx

My cats, also, prefer to vomit on carpet or freshly washed rugs rather than plain flooring. Maybe it's a secret Rule we humans are not to understand.

I rent currently but everytime I scrub vomit off the carpet I vow to myself that when I own my own home it will be wall to wall linoleum!

PS I should mention that I have one dainty little old lady who vomits only in the litter box, bless her.

I'm not sure why that is. My kitties seem to prefer to vomit on carpet as well. Maybe it's just more comfortable for them?

I have a pretty good carpet spray which cleans it right up and leaves no trace.

I never noticed that my kittens only vommit on my carpet in the hall way until you said that!! I have an all natural pet stain remover that I bought at a local pet goods store, it's child and pet safe and has no harsh smell!! It does wonders at cleaning up the stain on my white carpet!
