Don’t Eat Your Own Puke!

May 22, 2008

Kitty has been out of sorts recently.  We took him to the vet and since then he has been getting antibiotics twice a day.  He really hates all of this.  To make matters worse he is shedding like crazy.  We comb him with both a furminator and a regular comb but due to being sick he has not been enjoying it as much so the combing sessions are just too short to really decrease the furballs.

The other evening he let out this very pained cry.  From experience we know that this is the “I think I am going to puke” warning.  Hub and I swung into action.  Kitty puked his just eaten dinner on the stairs and the second floor hallway.  While Hub took care of the mess in the hallway I went to take care of the small amount of puke on the stairs.  However, Kitty got there first and was very interested in his recently upchucked dinner.  I found myself yelling, “Don’t eat your own puke!”  He was distracted by this and I cleaned it up. 

Hub noted that because Kitty does not really chew his dry food, it looked pretty much like it did when he put it in Kitty’s bowl 20 minutes before.  It was probably the least gross kitty puke ever. 

Earlier that day Kitty was very naughty.  While I was upstairs he knocked a glass of milk off the kitchen table.  You would be surprised at how far milk can splash.  It got on some wool I had unwisely left in the kitchen.  I blotted the wool and hope it won’t need washing before I knit up.  It will get washed when I block it but I hope it it will be fine to knit with.  It is already in balls so if it needs to be washed I think I will have to unball it into hanks.  I really do not want to do that.  So we will see.
