3.30am. On a Bank Holiday Monday

Was woken up by the sound of vomiting.

I have wooden floors, but bless her, Jessie had managed to be sick down the stairs. Which is carpeted.

And by down the stairs, I mean, she'd managed to get sick on 9 out of 14 stairs. And the wall.

I'm so tired.

(Kitty is fine, btw: combination of hairball and different brand cat food, so not totally unexpected).

She's now asleep on my lap. I'm watching old movies on sky.

This is why I want laminate on the stairs, ours wees through the spindles and it went everywhere.

Poor you. What a way to start any day.

I was woken up at that time yesterday morning, as herself wanted to go outside.

She's kept in at night, which she is usually ok with, and has a litter tray if she needs to go. She'll often try it on but gives up soon-ish, but yesterday she refused to shut up. As it was light I gave in and opened the window for her, only to hear her yell angrily at someone about five mins later. So then I had to go out with a box of treats to try and find her. Failed, but she came in by herself about ten mins later purring merrily and unharmed, so I suspect she saw off whoever had come into her territory.

But of course, by this point I was wide awake and thus took ages to nod off again. Grrrr!

Poor you. I've seen that many old movies/ box sets while keeping night watch on a cat. sad

That is a spectacular puke! Got woken up by ours making the pre puke noises but couldn't find any vomit so back to bed then this morning I see a blade of grass in a tiny damp patch. All that noise for that.

Keep your eyes peeled for the rest, Vino. They seem to vomit in threes - Gawd knows why - so you may have spied only one of the 'tail-enders', I'm afraid.

Took ages to get to sleep last night then one of my pair came in and squawked for attention, ignored her so she jumped on the bed and headbutted me till I woke up. Little bugger. But she's so adorable she gets away with it.

Haven't located anymore as yet Cozie so am hoping that'she it. She sometimes does that loads of noise and not much end result and the larger ones are quieter.
Grim creatures but they are so cute.

I have it timed now - I hear the 'plumbing noise' and I'm immediately up and finding a double sheet of newspaper. (Although Seniorboy hardly ever upchucks since I started grooming him every day and since his teeth were sorted.)

I also woke up to the sound of imminent cat puke. So, being a bank holiday and all, I feigned sleep and let DH clear it up grin

Of course it was on our brand new stair carpet.. replaced because of... years of cleaned-but-left-a-stain cat vomit! My next cats will be hairless ones!

My other madam has a coughing fit usually at night and sounds like she's about to pike but never actually does. By which time I'm wide awake!

Vanish for carpets works a treat for carpets. My carpet's a very pale silvery grey.

Floor-boards downstairs, but oh no, they'll never deign to hurl on that. If they are downstairs, they pick the new (expensive) rug.

I woke up the other night to the sound of rustling, MCat had upended a pot noodle I'd taken up to bed blush. I had to rummage for the Vanish through my sleep-crusted eyes.

I occasionally get presents of large mounds of muddy moss that have fallen off the roof when it rains, from Little Monsieur.

*Excessive use of the noun "carpet" in first paragraph.
