he launched himself across the room to shoo the cat but did it with so much force that he smacked into the coffee table, taking a chunk out of it and hurting his arm.
he went off to work holding his arm.
i have no sympathy because it was an almost 'violent' action and so karma.
i'm a bitch aren't i? sad

YANBU, I'd have laughed my head off.

Little bit....

Did the cat move? Be a bugger if after all that he failed!

Unless he was going to hurt the cat

i didn't laugh but i do think that by chucking himself quiet aggressively across the room at the cat that the table stopped him so therefore deserved it.

It depends what the cat was doing.

sniffing a plate.

cheesesarnie Sun 28-Oct-12 19:33:12

and ive just realised that i sound like a really horrible abusive person that wishes pain on their other half, which isn't me at all.

HeinousHecate Sun 28-Oct-12 19:33:19

what was on the plate?

StuntGirl Sun 28-Oct-12 19:36:02

I don't like pets sniffing/licking/eating from my plates either. But then I don't leave them where they can get at it.

Whose cat is it?

KnickersOnOnesHead Sun 28-Oct-12 19:36:38

YANBU, I'd of laughed my arse off! He deserved it. What was wrong with a loud his or throwing something near (not at!!) the cat to move it?!

KnickersOnOnesHead Sun 28-Oct-12 19:36:52

loud hiss

cheesesarnie Sun 28-Oct-12 19:39:18

nothing on the plate and we don't usually have plates on the floor, we were having a picnic dinner and watching a film. (my dc love doing it as a treat).

our cat stuntgirl.

So your husband leapt across a room to shoo a cat away from an empty plate?

That's really weird grin

hehe I'd definitely have laughed grin however, I wouldn't be overly concerned about the cat. Cats always come out on top in these little feuds. too clever for their own good

I think I would probably have faked some sympathy because I'm soft nice, but I'd have been laughing inside. Mind you, this is coming from the person who managed to hold it together when DD2 fell bum first into the toilet whilst potty training. Lots of sympathy for DD, then ran upstairs to howl with laughter.

StuntGirl Sun 28-Oct-12 21:40:04

I meant whose as in is it yours or his? But I presume joint from your answer. His reaction was ott regardless.

cheesesarnie Sun 28-Oct-12 21:44:57

oh both.

NathanDetroit Sun 28-Oct-12 21:58:50

I can kind of see why your DH flung himself across the room at the cat, although when I do that it's usually because they're helping themselves to our food. I quite like it when they lick our plates, they get them so clean.

Anyway, I think he was being a bit of a drama queen to do that over an empty plate so YANBU.

BeingBooyhoo Sun 28-Oct-12 22:01:58

cat sniffs an empty plate and he throws himself across the room? he's an idiot. surely the normal response is "shoo, psst get away"?

cheesesarnie Sun 28-Oct-12 22:02:41

It was more the force that he did it with. to chuck yourself so hard at something that you take a chunk out of a table can't be good!

YANBU. Stupid git!
