Some just have no respect for a carpet. Wherever they go they leave a trail of slime behind them.
Who needs a carpet today. I abolished then from my living quarters some years ago: stone tiles and wooden parquet have replaced the carpets, although I still have one below the dining table. Now I am alone at home, I am thinking about removing that one as well. It seems only snails and other crawling creatures from the insect world are the only organisms that still enjoy carpet. They are just food for a vacuum cleaner and my Dyson does the job just as well when it takes a walk on my carpetless floors.FOWC with Fandango: Carpet
