About 2-3 years ago, we re-carpeted our bedroom with my hubbies rug that was only 1 year old. Whenever Midgie & I would walk on it, we would get chewed up. I believe it was dust mites because we don't have a problem with fleas. As soon as the flooring was finished, I started putting my bedroom back together & looked down at Midgie; guess what--NO ITCHING!! Although I know I will probably never get rid of all the itchies, I know this will help her to feel better & possibly sleep through the night. She was so miserable that she would get up in the middle of the night & her scratching would wake me up. I'm so looking forward to a solid good-nights sleep!! So happy! It looks beautiful!
