life’s little irritations #4

It’s more than a little irritating when you wake up at 3:30 am from a nice “snuggling with the kitty” kind of sleep because said kitty has just forcefully thrown himself off the bed and has begun horking up something on your bedroom carpet.

Then when you come back with paper towels to clean it up, you first, step in the hork dribbles in the hall, second, realize there’s no way you can clean it properly in the middle of the night and third, you cannot possibly go back to bed with the hork remnants 2 feet away. Gag.

Not only do you have to go in search of a new place to sleep but now so does dh after you’ve awakened him, blinded him with the light, and made him aware of the smell. Heh. I just can’t suffer alone now can I?

So should I be grateful to dear George that he didn’t puke on the bed, or annoyed at him for eating mice and grass and all those things that make him vomitous in the first place? Both I think.

But could you stay mad at this face?

    Thanks for the help with crib problems – I may just have to bite the bullet and take the bumper off and hope he learns (soon) to stay away from the edge as to not “fall in” (or out…)!

    I had to laugh at your cat story – ah, the days of steping in who-knows-what. I haven’t had a cat since moving out of my parents’ house when I left for college. I like to visit and say hello but don’t miss the “surprises” they would leave!

    Great post. I have my own love/hate cat relationship. Our cat sometimes does the random-running-a muck-in-the-middle-of-the-night thing. There is also the take-a-flying-leap-from-the-dresser-to-the-bed thing.

    […] the sound of cat puking on the floor near me. As soon as I move he runs and pukes more in the hall. Deja vu? No, I’m in just hell. And have to pee […]
