Resolved Question:

I have stains on my light grey carpet caused by cat vomit. They are probably caused by red dye in the cat food.

Sponge the area immediately with water to dilute the spill.

Carefully use a spot remover.

Apply a wet spotter and a few drops of ammonia. (Use ammonia sparingly)

Cover with an absorbent pad dampened with the wet spotter.

Let the pad remain as long as any stain is being removed.

Change the pad as it picks up the stain.

Keep both the stain and pad moist with wet spotter and ammonia.

Flush well with water and repeat if necessary.

If, after allowing to dry, a stain still persists:
Mix a little color remover according to package directions.
After testing on an inconspicuous place, flush it through the stain to an absorbent pad. When dealing with carpet, sponge it on the stain and blot with an absorbent pad.
Rinse well with water and allow to dry thoroughly.
