Trichishness - Help in cleanin' up! (Please!)
    #1641793 - 06/18/03 10:59 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

So - my cat Neko (in her sekret lab undisclosed) grew 22 casings. 8 Treasure Coast, 8 Ecuador, 4 Cambodian, 2 Mex-cub...

And her first two Ecuadors had dime-sized trich patches. She cut and salted and removed the stuff a long time ago and everything was OK until she realized that it started growing in a ring around her wounds again. (Not a big enough cut-out, not H2O2'd before she started, who knows?)

Anywayz - 22 beautiful casings one day up and decided to show a plethora of white mound-like growth everywhere... and the next day they all turned light-green.

She's attempting to save as much as possible.... but this is some _EASY_ stuff to transfer from case to case, eh? Airborn, of course, but two dime-sized green patches contamed 20 casings in an extremely sterile environment!!!

My question for her, when she tosses all of these casings (don't worry, more jars already on their way in safe location, or so I'm told...) what preventative measures can she take to keep this stuff (__OBVIOUSLY__ already all around her) from takin' over the new batches? She's already planning on growing some small plant-creatures in her microclimates so she doesn't have to fan them anymore/so-often. Also, the humidity outside of them is nearly 20-30% which allows for heavy dust/contams in the air.

Any cleanup suggestions? Much appreciated, I will dictate a response in cat-language.

Cleanup... [Re: c_mathimatics]

Oh - everything will be SCRUBBED with rubbing alcohol.  The microclimates, blah blah blah... EVERYTHING.  Lot's o Lysol, too.  But she really wants to make sure that carpets, walls.. the _entire place_ is as sterile as it can be before she opens up her new jars and starts casing.  She can't afford HEPA yet or anything cool like that! :frown:

you won't ever get your place completely sterile. keeping things clean around the area and always washing your hands and face will help. wear a hat to your hair doesn't drop stuff. wear gloves if you wish. turn off any ceiling fans or air conditioning and let the room settle before going into the terrarium.

You did well. Use a vacuum cleaner for the carpets and apply some lysol right after, as for the walls you could use a bleach solution and clean them with a towel.
Airborne contaminants such as some green molds can spread to other casings very fast, that's why you should always separate bad casings from good casings (or cakes).
Take a look here if you already haven't. PM me if you have any doubt.

THX for the advice, all!

My cat's roommate is nothing short of a slob. Cleaning the bathroom means scrubbing the bathtub alone, ironically. So she's going to get her own sekret lab somewhere and start over fresh-like. She said it got into her second set of jars already!!! Stuff is everywhere...
