Just say the cat did it!gfa
Ha ha! They certainly did try to help.
Clearly, it's the feline's fault!
It, no matter what "it" is, is often their fault indeed.
Ouch, but think of how much easier it will be to keep clean!
You wouldn't believe how much dirt was under there, added to the decayed backing.
This happened to me after I'd finished painting my kitchen with water-based paint. I saw a little "tag" of dry paint and pulled. Four hours later that little tag had become a WALL of plastic that I had to keep on peeling. Then the ceiling unpeeled. Then I found myself in the living room with more paint was cascading down. It was HEAVY once all of it was on the floor like wallpaper! I then found out the prior paint had been oil based, and the two types didn't like each other.
Ow! At least my little experiment was something I'd been considering doing and was relatively limited in area.
