Like Loreal " it's worth it"

Message to self
Don't put off dirty jobs just  because you are tired and want to go to bed
Dealing with the now hardened pile of cat puke behind the sofa ( and all down the bleeding radiator ) was the nastiest chore, I have had the misfortune to deal with since Meg rolled gleefully inside a dead badger.
It's just one of the never ending chain of jobs that pile up ( literally) in these dirty wet days of winter and the cottage became very VERY quiet after a lusty and frustrated bout of swearing,
WHEN I eventually  stormed back into the kitchen ( clutching a bin bag full of sick), I was greeted by a butter-wouldn't melt sight of the two bitches in my life sitting quietly together like well behaved school girls.

You've just gotta love em

  1. Butter would not melt, just look at them, innocents. They both wear the "don't look at me, I didn't do it" look with professionalism worthy of Dame Maggie Smith.

  9. You forgot to tell us how you stopped, looked at them then gave them a treat and told them how much you love them.

    But that's ok .. we would do the same thing.

  10. I must admit, if confronted by that look on the faces of my cats, I would immediately go looking to see what mess they had made.

  16. Amazing, isn't it, how when one has crawled into bed exhausted by the day's requirements, too broken even to whimper, with joints so stiff in pain one can barely manage to lift the comforters...the sound of a cat commencing to retch on the freshly laundered duvet cover can elicit an operatic howl of protest accompanied by an Olympic leap to remove the cat before it is too late.

    There is compensation. One meets very nice people in the pet clean-up products section of the supermarket, comparing experiences. (Won't be adopting a ferret any time soon.)

    1. Funniest comment so far today. Retching cats and Olympic leaps - so true,

    2. Also humorous is the language, the words, one can learn when a man steps in a puddle of dog vomit right next to His side of the bed. Never mine. That Pup was no dummy.

  23. This post and all your hilarious commenters made me laugh this morning, just what I needed after waking up (with an Olympic leap!) to a cat retching and also finding that the other one had peed on the Oriental rug. Why? Why? There are 3 clean litter boxes to choose from, WHY the nice, expensive rug?? And why DO cats puke so much? Mine don't go outside so it isn't from eating rodents.

    1. Most of the flooring in our house is laminate. So why do the dogs always choose to throw up in their beds or on the hall carpet? Probably because they know it's harder to clean up!! If I hear them starting to retch during the night, I bound out of bed and drag them from their beds so they puke on the laminate.

    2. Martha welcome to my world

    3. Thank you, John, I've been absolutely loving your world (at least the bloggy/doggy parts of it that you write about) for a long time!
      And, SusanM, my cats are like that too, once they feel a retch coming on they will race away off the kitchen floor and onto either a rug or upholstered item. Their favorite is to be on a chair and lean partially over the side so that many different surfaces are involved. But I do love them!

  29. That's a good looking dish towel hanging up back there. Glad it works. I mentioned dog snot, but cat puke is not a threat, either.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh John, they just look as though butter wouldn't melt in their mouths, let alone cat puke.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes you do....you gotta love 'em.

  32. I spend far too much time cleaning up piddle and puke. And love the perpetrators - just as you do.
    Off topic I have just finished Sue Perkins memoir. Loved it. Of course.

  36. Ok, you win the Gross-Out Contest! Having to clean dead badger is definitely in a league all it's own. Give your bitches a break. They could have innocent thoughts running through their heads.

  45. The two girls have that look of 'Dad's mad! Act sweet!'

    Like the song says, 'Mo' pets, mo' problems'... or something like that. We've got 4 cats and 1 dog and plenty of pee, puke and poop to deal with all the damn time. I feel you, brother, I really do!
