Yak Wednesday

My mom loves me dearly and I AM a precious little girl after all.  But this morning when I asked mom to get up, it was late enough, yes-but still winter so the house was pretty shrouded in dark gray..barely make out anything.  Mom got up..opened the mini blinds from room to room and then, made her way down the hall to the living room whereupon she opened the BIG vertical blinds going across..turned on a lamp and proceeded into the dark kitchen.  Kitties.  Woofies. As she strode purposefully into the wooden floored kitchen, she skidded several feet on her right foot into a throw rug.  She had stepped into a large pile of fluffy yak.  Mostly kibble I would say.  AND, there were three other smaller piles as well.  SHE stepped into and slid in the largest there.  Light came on...paper towels loosed from their spindle with the wooden knob on top..and clean up in aisle one commenced.

After that, Mom got my breakfast ready.  My bowl of kibble was pretty full..go figure.  I've been known to empty it at night.  So, she gave me half a can of food.  I was starved and ate rapidly.  She waited..and gave  me the other half.  All is well.  I seem to be the yak Queen.  The first one after a week was scary as it was bomit and all watery.  I had brought up ALL of my just eaten supper.  This one while unpleasant to walk and skid into, was more of a normal thing we kittehs do sometimes although the amount was awe inspiring.

I have a new comfy red blankie that was hand knitted for me by Admiral's MIL  remember Admiral was married to Nik?   She was kind and knitted this beautiful blankie for me.  It is as soft as *I* am..like a cloud.  It is very large.  Mom folded it this once to make it even cushier for me. Some of Nik's ginger furs are on it.  xoxoxox That was so loving of Nik's mommy and I love my blankie.  This is not a good picture for many reasons but whenever mom gets up to hold the camera I move toward her.  So by and by I will allow one of me stretched out again all over it.

Oh, Mommy, be very careful and turn on all lights ahead of yourself because we REALLY don't want you slipping and falling in that slippery cat yak! Audrey frequently yaks up her early 5 am dry food mini meal and she makes very sure she runs first to one of the two mats in the back hallway to do it. Good that it is therefore not slippery, but a royal pain to clean up. The mats are ridged so it gets in the cracks. You can picture it.

That red blanket is very attractive next to your furs, katie.

Yikes, that doesn't sound like a pleasant way to start the day, but is sounds like it wasn't the worst either. I hope it was just a hairball!

When my kitties yak up their undigested food, if we don't get to it first, Willow comes and eats up all the foods. Seems gross, but she seems to like the extra food!

Fuzzy Tales said...

We guess your mom didn't need coffee to wake up this morning. :-P

Derry will barf up all his food if he eats too much at once on an empty stomach. He's better when he gets several small meals through the day.

I sure hope Mom didn't hurt herself.

CATachresis said...

Ooooh! that could have been nasty!! I hope momma didn’t hurt herself. Katie you take care not to gobble now, ok? There ain’t no one else gonna eat it :)

La Cabeza Grande said...

Oh, no! Don't hurt yourself, Mom Carole! Those darn bomit traps seem to get us when we least expect them. Careful.

Katie Bella, you look like you're enjoying your new blankie. I'm glad to see that. Nik, Rocky and I send big hugs xoxo

Eric and Flynn said...

Oh no! Not the best way to start the day. That red blankie looks lovely against your black fur.

Daisy said...

Katie, what an extra-special blanket that is!

Brian said...

Well sweet Katie, I guess you had a Big Yak attack!!!

Mariodacat said...

Katie - that is a gorgeous blankey that Nik's mom made for you. yOu are one lucky kitty to have that, but I guess Nik is your brother-in-law - I keep forgetting that. She is really good at making kitty blankeys. he he - we sure were laughing at your description of the morning events - it's not every morning mom goes skating on her floor. Good thing she didn't fall down and hurt her wrist agian.

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

Ooooh, tuxie kitty looks so pretty on soft red blankie! I do that sometimes when I eat too much, too fast, Katie.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

hoping that that is just a furball too! Stay comfy cozy with your blankie, the red is quite becoming with your furs.

Sparkle said...

What a coincidence, Katie - I hacked up a big, fat hairball today, along with the bit of breakfast that I ate. Maybe we are on the same schedule.

The Island Cats said...

I yak like that too, Katie. Sometimes I eat my foods too fast and it doesn't wanna stay down.

BeadedTail said...

Katie, would you believe my sisfur Isabella has NEVER yakked! She hasn't! I do about once every 6 months or so just to keep Mommy in practice cleaning it up!

Your blanket is very pretty and very special too! Just like you!

Purrs,
Angel

Beth said...

Tell mom I said for her to be careful.
I like your red blankie. It is so pretty.

Cathy Keisha said...

YOUR Mom has to get a flashlight to see the bomit on the floor. TW has to use a flashlight in the dark or I'll jump her legs and bite down hard. I love it when she can't see me. Good thing your Mom didn't fall and hurt herself again. TW did a slide like that a few months ago in the supermarket and ended up on her rump. xoxo

The Cat From Hell said...

Me carefully plans my yaks. me has to make sure that Mommy and Daddy and the hairy slobbery sisters is asleep. That way me can puts it where it will has the most foot impact! And me can't put it where one of the hairy slobbery sisters might step in it before Mommy and Daddy.
Yous is doing well!

Darling Katie, Just an FYI: Yeeeeessss, technically speaking, the Admiral *was* married to Nik. BUT, as you know, there is a great deal of room in a LadyCat's heart, and *I* occupied a fair amount of real estate there as well. Just ask your Mommy sometime.

That said, it was furry nice of the MIL to knit that beautiful red blankie for you--red is always a good color for black or black-and-white kitties.

Speaking of which, drop by tomorrow for some more cinnamon love.

Keisha said...

I sorry u are sick. Iz hopes u feels betterer. :)

Whisppy said...

That's quite a bit of yak you left for your Mommy. Maybe you should take smaller meals but more frequently?

That red blankie is very beautiful and we can both lay on it to enjoy the stars when I come over tonight. *kiss*
Love, Boomie

Max the Quilt Cat said...

What an eventful morning you had..... Oh Katie.... I love your new blanket. It's a great color for you.

Have a super day.

pawhugs, Max

Hannah and Lucy said...

What a lovely blankie Katie - it shows up your lovely furs to purrfection. Lucy did a big yak for Mum yesterday she managed to spread it right across the carpet!
Mum was furry happy haha!! but she says at least she didn't tread in it.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Random Felines said...

That is a lovely blanket. And good job with the yak bomb - the ones they never see coming are the best!!

Cats of Wildcat Woods said...

Stepping in yak is not fun but Pop stepped in a dingle berry this morning and boy was he MAD!

Kjelle Bus said...

I feel a little bit sorry for your mom´s awakening , but just a little ;-)

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

I am the yak king in our household. And I have been doing a bit of extra yakking lately. Meowm despairs of what to do with me. Meowm however is very lucky, I mostly yak in the carpet, so she doesn't skid across any floors. I think it is quite kind of me to do that for her.

That is a very nice blankie!

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Oh, I forget to sign my post. Junior-the Yak King.

SailorEdgar said...

Katie, I agree that turning on all the lights needed or a flashlight are in order for your Mom. That must have been, as the young folks say, a totally awesome yak (this is the first time I have seen the word used that way...to me, a "yak" is a Tibetan beast of burden or talking). I hope it was just a temporary thing. Gracie does not usually chew her kibble as well as she should (just like our late Hemingway), so sometimes she "yaks". Your blanket is beautiful...that was a very thoughtful gift.

Pierro said...

Dear Missie Katieblossom, you are so sweet to put the barfs where your mom could find it quickly and mop it up. If you had done that behind the chair, it might have stayed there for MONTHS, and perhaps not discovered until the Krissmiss tree was carefully positioned in December.

Nice work.
We like your red blanket. It is very very classy.
Miles and I are very impressed with your eager effort to keep your mom busy and actively involved in your day. That is usually the stuff of PROFESSIONALS.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Scooby barfs all the time because he eats way too fast! He's nailed the inside moms shoes twice too. He's a real pro.
Gorgeous beautiful blankie!! You look great on it!

Oui Oui said...

Mica Minnie Moo is the yak queen here. It sure isn't any fun stepping in those things. Nasty little kitty bombs! That is a lovely blankie and red seems to be your color!

Kat and the Furrsonality gang said...

What a nice blanket! We love you, Katie Isabella, you one beautiful girl <3

GreatGranny said...

Lovely Katie, red is your color. Yaks are expected at least here. Tell Mom to be careful and light her path. Mom needs to take her own advice...mol
