Why on earth do my cats...

    Always have to barf ON something.  Good grief.  It seems they strategically run away from the bare floor to find my bed, a throw rug, the couch, an article of clothing, etc... They choose anything that's difficult to clean up.  And while we're at it, why oh why must I so frequently step in it?  I love my cats to death, but I'm over it.  Okay, it was a bad cat barf day.  Thanks for listening, I feel better now.

    I know what you mean. I don't have any carpeting in my apartment because of that. Of course, now he throws up on my bed instead smile

    Cats do some srange things. I have one who insists on sleeping in my purse. Its very strange, sometimes he trys to get things out of it and other times he just goes to sleep.

    I see you have cats like mine!  Why, oh why, can't they barf on the floor?  Why do they have to find a rug or my bed????  This is a good question and one I have pondered for years.  Do they think we would not notice unless it is in a noticeable place?  (ie: one we would not step or sit in)

    Thanks for letting me know it is not just my cat who does this!  big_smile

    Very familiar... I am lucky they don't do that often!

    So glad it's not just me.  They're currently in a "barf-free" stage.  Oh, that was not a smart declaration to make.

    I think it has to do with their union...I have yet to own a cat that doesn't run for the carpet as they are throwing up...I should speak to the union rep about that...

    They barf on the carpet instead of the hard floor just to complete their annoying existence. Our cat loves my hubby and daughter and does everything she can to annoy the crap out of me -- like when she cries incredibly loud at 3 in the morning, waking up everyone. They truly do things just to prove their position in the world and to make you bow to their wishes.

    "Clean my barf! Scoop up my shit! Find me things to scratch (like your couch and the hardwood wall) and give me attention only when I want it and the rest of the time, leave me the hell alone, you bitch!"

    Unlike dogs who try to do things to make you happy.
