The attention of this blog lately has been on Tucker and Portia, with a bit of Neville thrown in. Evidently, Renn has been feeling left out. He decided to remedy that condition.
Yesterday I came home to a surprise. It’s always a bit of a guessing game as to what I will find when I come home. Yesterday, I discovered that Renn had thrown up. But it wasn’t just that: it was where and how he had thrown up. He likes to lie at the top of the taller cat-tree in the sitting room. He apparently felt nauseous while there and relieved his feelings over the short parapet, and in the direction of the glass door to the ditch.
It was a prodigious amount, and covered much of the glass. It also hit, or fell, to the carpeted ledge. There it lie, or clung: hard-food, soft-food and stomach bile, being gently warmed by direct sunlight until I returned, to add vinegar and warm water to the mixture. The aroma is better imagined than described.
The interesting - and frustrating - thing is that if the door and screen had been open, most of Renn’s refuse would have been fired out into the concrete ditch. If I had been home - and if I had thought of it - all the mess could have been avoided by opening the door. However, I console myself by realizing that I likely would have tripped in my hurry to save the situation and have broken something vital.
Well, Renn was all right, and ate a good dinner. Why not? He had apparently been dissatisfied with his lunch.
If it's worth doing, Renn, it's worth doing well, huh?
Some of us have plenty of knowledge of that particular smell...
You know, if you were to set up a hidden camera to record what the cats get up to when you're at work, I bet the results would be both horrifying and instructive.ReplyDelete
It'd be like knowing the future or reading others' thoughts: fascinating but, in fact, probably far too disturbing for one's good.Delete
Had to grin at this! Your reply I mean.Delete
While a hidden camera would be interesting, It may be best if we didn't know!Delete
Yikes, what an unpleasant gift from Renn. What was he thinking whenReplyDelete
he decided to share left overs with you.
We hope it's just a temporary thing, throwing up isn't much fun!ReplyDelete
There are times I've very grateful that I no longer have a sense of smell....ReplyDelete
Fingers and paws crossed that Renn's tummy has settled and stays settled!
Uh oh! Sometimes, Truffle and Brulee will relieve themselves from the top of the cat tree. Usually it's a hairball, so it's a little easier to clean up.ReplyDelete
Speaking of that, I ged Her Royal Highness Queen Katie her breakfast this morning She ate the large overfilled TEAspoon of wet food, waited till I got my oatmeal prepared and asked for more I always give little bits at a time to fend off her throwing up I gave her more...all was well. Full serving of breakfast. Three hours later, it was returned to me all over a just washed for the same reason last week, crocheted gift blankie she has. But Renn, I do believe he outdid himself!ReplyDelete
I've had to wash a comforter cover on consecutive days, too...Delete

That pretty much approximates the smell, I think, Tabbies...Delete
Ah the vomit surprise.ReplyDelete
Oh Oh! Not the kind of gift/surprise you need at the end of a work day...smells like more work!ReplyDelete
Glad it was a once and done...I hope.
Or! He's just making the point..ReplyDelete
"Hey! Dad..what about me!"
Renn really outdid himself with aim and spread!ReplyDelete
He did. He hasn’t performed so well in years…Delete
We have two "higher up spreaders" here also. Miss Fitz has launched off the china cabinet onto the cat stairs to the table and Toby has shot off the table to the floor. I feel when a cat does this they are working hard to keep themselves away from the disposed gunk so they can then nap. Both of ours woke to a feeling of normalcy and hunger as did Renn. Good show big fellow.ReplyDelete
Oh gosh, I know that stench well. Today I'll be spot cleaning carpets - I suspect hairballs are causing issues based on the contents. I guess with the heat they are shedding more than normal.ReplyDelete
Oh dear!!!! I feel your pain and surprise. When I would awaken in the morning, I knew I would see Ozzy's supper splashed everywhere. It was like he was running from it and leaving vomit wherever he landed. Thank goodness he's getting better. I hope Renn and his tummy are doing better!ReplyDelete
Is Ozzy having an allergic reaction to his food? Would it help changing his supper-time?Delete
