Cat Puke

Just after midnight , and I am off to bed soon.
George , like I said lost a tooth today, and feels sorry for himself,
 Winnie is just finishing her season and is still " spotting" on the carpets
Mary is still leaving the odd pee stain in the cottage
And William backed into the bookcase the other night , and left 
a stool on my copy of Halliwells film guide...
2 minutes ago
 Albert has walked right up to the tv
Coughed loudly
And threw up BIG STYLE over the back and down the side of the sofa
I noted a rodent tail and a back leg in the offering


Dogs from all over the house arrived to eat the spoils
And I was left thinking my usual thought
" these animals will be the death of me" 
Hey ho

  2. Ahhh, I am reminded of the time the puppy left a little pile just inside the kitchen door and I went bouncing in first thing in the morning, stepped in it, slid and fell.

  3. I am so glad that I only have cats and chickens to deal with now. But the other night I found what could only have been a squirrel fetus, still encased in its membranes, on my freshly washed kitchen floor. Perhaps the cats are too much?

  5. Poor George.
    The Yoda used to leave me those half digested presents all of the time.

  6. I should know better than to eat when I read your blog, John.

    And at the risk of repeating myself, will George be seeing a vet about his tooth. Teeth hurt like hell when they're being troublesome.

  10. I say that nearly every day. And my husband will be the death of me if the animals don't kill me first.

  11. That was definitely in the "Too Much Information" category! They certainly keep you on the go, don't they! I feel for George - is he dribbling too?

  12. I often think the same thing about my gang but then what a bore life would be without them!

  13. Cat 'spraying' is the worst; the stink can linger for months.

    1. Vinegar and water to clean the area helps kill the smell, it also works on toddler wee when they miss the potty lol.

  14. Oh Yuk! I was just thinking of an afternoon snack, but now I won't bother.

  15. Well you pretty well covered the gamut of animal secretions or your animals did anyway ....

  16. Ah, I've had three of the five cats retching for the past week or so. And Eddie, the Jack Russel, barfed in the garage next to Grant's chariot. I quickly mopped that up before he saw it! My d.i.l. picked up worm tablets from the vet yesterday and I'll dose all today. (not as easy as it sounds - Shadow and Ginger bit me in 2014 - Ginger latched onto my hand and as I walked away, Shadow attacked my calf. Seven bite and scratch wounds; I had treatment for six weeks. And anti rabies jabs. My animals will be the death of me too!

  17. Eewww.... how the hell do you cope with this endless round of bodily secretions??

  18. Your four-legged friends are clearly stubbornly resistant to the concept of "house trained".

  19. Glad I had finished my breakfast before I read that! Our elderly cat doesn't go out anymore, but does manage to scatter bits of poo ( thankfully hard bits) on the landing, yards away from his littler tray. I think they must get stuck in his long hair!

  20. I hope your day is less messy as it rolls on! :-)

  21. Perhaps they do it because they know that you will clean it up.
    Once you get used to cat/dog stuff, human waste gets easier.

  22. I long ago reached the conclusion that if I thought too much about what my dog ate on her travels round the fields I would never ever keep a dog. They will eat anything they fancy - the dirtier the better.

  23. Aren't dogs great! I love it that they will clean up anything disgusting - even cat puke! you can't say that about any other pet.

  24. I had to deal with a half eaten pheasant that I found behind a chair when I was clearing a dead mouse that was starting to smell and I had been looking at for three days. Then whilst at it I cleared a half eaten rodent from the living room carpet. If it hadn't been for the mouse starting to smell they would still have laid there and I doubt I would have found the pheasant for weeks. Doing this was the last thing I felt like under present circumstances.

  25. After reading your post, I'm just so very grateful that the photo was so dark that I couldn't make out any detail; I feel that I wouldn't really want to study it.

  26. I think you just need to buy a big bag of corks ...... ;-)

  28. You do seem to have major pet problems. My 2 cats don't do this. Sympathy.

  29. There's a verse in the New Testament that says "the dog is returned to its vomit, and the sow to its mire"...didn't mention cat puke. You need to add a pig to make your menagerie complete.

  30. I just started to read this post and then heard a puking noise in the hall...one of the cats just threw up....he was giving me a depiction of what I was reading.......

  31. Cats never throw up discreetly. They put everything into it.

    1. And always hit the carpet when the wood floor is mere inches away...

  32. I do sympathize. My cats seem to throw up more on weekends perhaps because I try to sleep in a bit longer and then they gulp breakfast? One is so greedy she inhales her food and then loses it so I now feed her only a tablespoon at a time. We do our best for these beautiful furry creatures.

  35. I have three cats and I hear your pain, Maisie one of my cats has always been a bit of a puker, very yak thankfully the other two have stronger stomachs. I too have had the clean up pleasure this week.
