I Really Like My Pergo Floor--
Because it cleans up so easily when my hunting cat vomits back up his latest rodent conquest. Summer Clouds, the overweight Maine Coon who is on a permanent diet, is very laid-back and mostly inactive--except when there is a rodent to be caught and then he turns into Master Hunting Cat. His former owner had him declawed but that does not impede his prowess at all. Any rodent who dares to actually enter the house becomes first a victim of Hunting Cat, then a cat toy and finally cat food. However, Summer has yet to keep down what he eats. It may come back up within minutes or it may take all night, but back up it does come. When it happens on the carpet, cleaning is work. When it happens on the Pergo, it is easy. This morning I got to clean up off the Pergo last night's rodent. He has discovered that mice sometimes take a shortcut across the cat patio, so now he waits for them out there then brings them in the house to play with and eat. I'm happy that there is one less rodent living under the house; the cat is happy; only the rodents fail to enjoy this activity.
a view that has no end; no DSL, no cable, cell phones kinda function; dirt roads; plenty of space; no actual gardening, just find the plants that survive the conditions; a few good neighbors; wildlife up close; 25 minutes from the closest town--I would not want to live anywhere else.
