My parents’ cat has wet juicy hairballs sometimes. Her hair is insane! My mom waits until they dry (after scooping up the lumps) and then vacuums up the dried liquid off the carpet. Then she rubs it with some cleaning solution, I think it’s actually a vinegar mix, and it’s like the barf never happened. Their house is absolutely spotless.

Our cat doesn’t really ever get hairballs, maybe like twice? In 9 years? But he always chooses the area rug over the hardwood. Of course. We immediately clean it up and use a lot of Resolve on it. It’s not been a problem so far!

We give our cats some hairball medicine every week or so. They sell it at almost all pet stores. It sort of helps their stomachs digest or pass hairballs in the other direction, as opposed to them throwing them up, if you know what I mean…

Also, the vinegar and water trick works well on carpets. If you google how to get vomit out of carpets (usually on a parenting website or something), you can find a good ratio of how much vinegar to water you should use. 

You should be fine! Congrats on the new place!!

I have a little spot bot pet stain remover. It really helps with any accidents and it can deep clean. I pick up all the large “pieces” of whatever it is and set the spot bot on top of the stain. After it works its magic it’s like it never happened!

We have a black, medium-haired cat.  We give her Laxatone or a similar product to help reduce the number of hairballs.  When she does have one developing, she tends to throw up her breakfast, which is always fun to clean up, (our carpet sounds very similar to yours!).  We clean up as much as possible with paper towels, then use Nature’s Miracle Advanced spray on the remaining stain.
