I am really not sure who is worse - Emma or Winston on the rugs in this house. Emma does quite a number on looped rugs when she does her nesting/scratching on the carpet. Winston made some pretty large bald spots on a shag rug the last few days - I think he thinks its like grass and he roots around until all the fibers are pulled out.
The rug in my dining room was beyond repair - that one was pretty much due to Emma and her scratching. I pitched it and replaced it with - of all things - an outdoor patio mat. It has been down on the floor for 3 days now and its been scratched on and rooted on with no issues to report. At this time the rug in the entry has been turned face down in order to attempt to preserve it. I will be heading to Lowe's for another patio mat for the entry as well. Silly critters.
