I'm the Mayor of my own Crazy Town. Sheriff, too.
I generally think vomit is hilarious, so "cutest, cuddliest, furriest monster" holds up, provided I don't have to clean up after it. Yeah, your security deposit is screwed. Might as well start peeing in patterns on rugs. Smell shmell, you might as well lose your deposit for artistic expression rather than random cat vomit.
But does your cat run while vomiting? Mine has this great habit of running like a bat out of hell immediately after eating, so not only does she puke, but she does it at high speeds, which in turn creates projectile vomit that hits EVERYTHING. I wouldn't wish that clean up on anyone.
Cat logic: I didn't do that. Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?
The worst is hearing the cat-barf sounds in the middle of the night, then drifting back to sleep and forgetting about it until you step in it the next morning. :-p
If given a choice between barfing up a hairball on the rug or on easy-to-clean tile flooring, a cat will choose the rug every time. It will even go out of its way to hold the hairball back until it can get to the rug to barf it up. Little bastards.
And you've got a manly man boyfriend there, punching a bear! Is he Canadian?
I feel the same way about my dog. I got engaged this weekend and one of the first things I said to the newly minted fiance was "OMG ZOLA WILL HAVE A DAD NOW!" Their relationship is a tad strained.
How often does she barf? You're not giving her different brands of cat foods, depending on what's on sale, are you? You need to find the food that makes her puke the least and keep her on that food.Love,Janie
Of all the things people complain about with cats like snooty attitudes, litter, etc, the thing that drives me the most crazy is the vomiting. Most of my house is tile or wood floors, but pretty much exclusively, they will throw up on my carpet. And half the time, it's right in the path of where I will walk in the morning. Gah! But somehow I still love their annoying butts.
Well Gia you certainly have a typical cat on your hands ha ha. I feel ya.
I completely identify with this post. My cat, let's call him Mr Satan Soft Paws, regularly scratches the shit out of my husbands leather recliner. My husband, let's call him Mr Comfy Chair Love Pants, is veeery protective of the recliner. So each time Mr SSP launches his adorable paws from the recliner and scratches it, Mr CCLP yells and stomps and waves his arms. Then I pick Mr SSP up and say "Bad boy, you're Mummy's baaaad boy. Naughty" Then I cuddle him and scratch his ears. Mr CCLP says "Put him down, he's been bad" and I say "Veeeery bad, naughty, naughty boy" and Mr CCLP says "Stop that, stop cuddling him!" and I explain that Mr SSP doesn't understand being told off and that we need to employ positive reinforcement and my husband sighs and rubs his face and walks tiredly away and I kiss Mr SSP on the head.
