Picture Will Not be For the Faint of Stomachs

Kitties, before I go on, I wanted to say as I frequently do, that although you don't see the pictures of our furriends who flew to the Bridge on my sidebar, they are still here.  Just in my Rainbow page which is clickable just under the header picture.  All the dear ones that I knew... and that I  meowed with are there.


Now.  Mom said I have to be truthful and tell you that after two days I was not as enthused with my new foods as I had initially been.  I eat them, but with persuasion.  (she brings them TO me with a little mat, when I am in another room, so tempt me).  Sheesh.

AND I had a horking time yesterday that brought back memories of a year or so ago, before I changed kibble.  I used to hork every single day then, and sometimes 6 spots were decorated on the carpet as mom followed me with the paper towel roll and spray.  Changing to another formulation of foods, for indoor and older kitties helped tremendously.  The sensitive skin and stomach was a wash. Just took us years to figure that out!

So, I horked several times with the new fuds but I think it was because I took on quite a hearty drink of water just in front of breakfast.  Look where it's been landing!  Look away those kitties and woofies who are faint hearted at this stuff.



My scratcher!  Mom had to turn the brand-new scratcher over a few days ago for the same reason, I horked all over it... and have the clean side showing.  Then, I come today and ruin that clean side with another hork session.

So, she'll be off to the store to burn more green papers!

Oh Katie, you are definitely keeping your mom bean on her toes. We hope the horking stops soon.

Dearest Katie Isabella,

Sending you hugs,

The Hubby rinsed...with water...the cat scratcher that was horked on, and after drying, it was as good as new! Who'd have thought it? He actually rinsed it with the hose outside, then lef it to dry in the sunshine.

I agree with Eastside Cats, Katie. Putting the hosepipe on it does bring it up good as new. That's what I used to do. I hope the horking was a one off because of your big drink of water.

Wow, you are making your mom work hard!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Bear barfed on my scratcher! It will never be the same! My Momma did her best to get it out of all the holes - but it's still yucky! Bear says he didn't do it because of his views on scratchers [or me] - but I have my doubts! ~Ellie Mae

We hate it when we hork on our scratchers instead of the carpet too. We can't be purrfect all the time we guess.

You poor kitty. Do you eat fast? Joanie used to hork a lot , but the new food I got for her from Pawtree is a miracle. I wrote about it on the blog on Tuesday. XO

We sure hope your tummy feels better sweet Katie.

Are you sure you didn't just want a new scratcher, Katie? We won't tell if you did. ;-)

Oh, that is an unfortunate spot for yakking. :-(

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh noooo! A hork-a-rama! On your scratcher.....was that your way of getting a NEW scratcher Katie - come on - tell the truth! I hope you are feeling OK and aren't getting a sickie.

Hugs, Teddy

Aargh! Yikes, KI. Is there a slow-feeder bowl for kitties? I had to eat from a slow-feeder bowl for a long time when I first came here. It helped me not to vomit every day from gobbling foods which I learned when I lived on the street.

Love and licks,
Cupcake

Oh dear, what a spot for horking. I guess there's really no good spot to drop a yack. When I get the hankerin' for yacking mom and dad try to grab me if I'm on the carpet and set me on the vinyl floor. Gotta say- doesn't always work.

Well, at least I wasn't eating when I came across this post. LOL At least you hacked up on a mat and not in the middle of the bed. Have a good, puke-free weekend. xo Diana

Ask Mama to get some coarse sandpaper and maybe she can clean and rough up your scratcher again. We hope you are not sick !

Jans Funny Farm said...

We're disappointed you aren't doing as well. We hope your mom finds something you enjoy eating and will keep down. Be well.

We looked at your rainbow page and saw several of our angel furries there. Seeing old friends makes us teary.

Tamago said...

Katie san, I hope your stomach has settled and you are feeling better!
And I hope you will get to enjoy your next new scratcher for a long time xo

Gross, not nice at all

meowmeowmans said...

Poor Katie! We're sorry you've been horking. We sure hope you and Mommy can figure the food thing out soon. XO

The J-Cats said...

Oh, poor Katie! It is so horrid feeling sick. Hope your tummy settles down soon and you can enjoy your noms propurr-ly once more.

John Bellen said...

I hope the work was due just to too much water. I can appreciate that your mum would be worried with each upchuck - not to mention a ruined new scratcher.

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Oh no! We hope your tummy is feeling better now. You know, you and Lexy are quite alike. She did the same thing on her scratcher once.
