I had a horrible mishàp today with cat poo! I didn't see it & sucked it up in the vacuum. It flew all over me, all over the room, smeared all over the floor. I wiped the floor the best I could with paper towels. Dad washed the poo off the beater bar, but he wouldn't clean the filter again. I wiped down the outside and kept vacuuming. Big mistake I guess, probably spread poo germs everywhere? The poo is probably up inside the vac. The whole house stinks. It's not fair. I work so hard and always have these crazy mishaps.
