It requires a significant amount of cuteness to get away with sleeping right beside the stain you made in the carpet when you tore through the garbage and spread sweet and sour sauce all over the place.
I recommend making it look like you're prancing like a deer if you can. I find it suitably distracting. It also helps if you can look like you're smiling. Of course, I am a professional at this so you may want to get some practice in before you go for the red food coloring stain yourself.
