Thankful Thursday For my Cleaning Staff

Today I'm thankful for my staff, headed up by TW. I complain about her a bunch but in an emergency, she's usually there. Today I provided a large cleanup job for her. I hoped she could handle it.

Warning: if you have a squeamish tummy, you might want to stop reading here.

Looking for some excitement. TW has had enough excitement for today
As you know, I've only yakked twice in the almost 7 years I've been here. This morning as TW was preparing to head out to the store, she heard what sounded like me throwing one of the foam rocket launchers off my cat tree. She came over to see if I wanted to play. Talk about shock and awe: A gristly scene awaited her. Not only had I frew up, but I projectile bomited! There was bomit on 2 levels of my cat tree, the rug, the floor, the legs of the rocking chair and even on the curtain. She didn't know what the clean up first but she wanted to make sure I was ok. She found me laying in the hall by the bathroom, looking relieved and, to her relief, alert. I had only frew up food—no blood, no mucus—lots of food. It looked like the entire pouch of Island Illusion I had consumed earlier.

It took half a half an hour to mop it all up. She'd appreciate tips on how to totally get it out of my tree. She suspects I may have eaten a small piece off one of the rockets. Even though she didn't find any of it in my frow-up, she's found little tiny chewed pieces on the floor the past 2 days. I dunno what I'll do if she takes them away from me cos they're the only toy I play with. She'd also suspected the Fancy Feast Breakfast Medley stuff that she thought I might be allergic to. After I ate some the other morning, I did a lot of scratching under my chin, which I don't usually do. She wasn't gonna give me anymore of it, but Pop said we couldn't review it fairly unless I tried it again. Well, I tried it again this morning. I don't think I'll be getting anymore of it. No big loss cos I really didn't like it.

When she got home from shopping, I wanted to eat. I kept walking into the kitchen and eating bites of kibble. On the other paw, she thought I should rest my stomach. Finally, she decided to give me some Fancy Feast tuna, which I devoured quickly and I've held. In fact after I ate, I got the zoomies. I ran through the house playing for awhile. It seems like the drapes and tree are in much worse shape than I am.

If you stopped reading, you can resume here.

Pretty in pink! This one of me on TW's sheets is for Spitty and Austin.

  1. OH CK...I am so sorry you frew up this morning and my goodness, you did a thorough job of it. Me, I make 4 piles of hork every time. The snall initial one, a really HUGE one in another place for the second "I really mean it" one , then a third one close by and the forth, a liquid dribble. That is the hardest one to get out.

    Mom gives me 3 small meals a day which helps. You however just got the yuckies from something. Glad you are OK now. xox

  8. Well, if you're gonna hurl, you might as well go all out! When we barf on our tree Mommy wipes up as much as she can, and then after the crust dries, vacuums the bejeebers out of the spot. That usually gets it all out. (She tries not to use too many cleaners/chemicals.)

  11. Truffle can't handle any food with Herring in it. We hope it was just that particular flavor of Fancy Feast.

  12. Excellent work, CK! It's good to keep the humans on their toes. MOL! We each have certain food triggers, too. Glad to hear that you're ok now. xoxo

  16. So happy you are okay. It just have been scary for you and TW since you never hork! I hork every now and then - M figures it's a hairball, then she gives me the goop and I'm good to go for another period of time.

  17. for what it is worth...Mom and Dad swear by a mixture of pure amonia (no foam) white vinegar and water. Probably 1/3 C each Amonia and white vinegar and at least 2-3 or more cups water. They have removed stains from upchuck, hairballs, you name it...and the odor..hope you feel way better CK...paw hugs, Savvy

  18. Hi Darling, Our fire turned out to a wooden deck in back of the big blue house that was burning--the firemen gotted it out pretty fast; fires are skeery here because the houses are wooden and built so close together, but efurrything turned out fine yesterday. I hope you have stopped frowing up! Did your Mom get the cat tree clean again? Did you help--ha ha ha! Just kidding!!! I know we don't **do** housework ;-)

  20. CK, I'm sorry you had to go through that. Yakking is never fun. I had a small episode of my own this week. I figure it builds Glogirly's character. And hones her housecleaning skills.

    pee s - sorry I've been incommunicado...the girl has left me again. Something about fishing. Whatever.
