As I’ve said before, owning pets is not all sunshine. Just like people, they have some habits that can be, well, gross.
So I told you all Monday about my difficulties with my cats’ food. Well, I’ve been excited to see that they’ve been eating the full amount now that they’ve (I assumed) gotten used to it. Well, perhaps that’s not exactly the case.
I was sleeping rather peacefully last night when I awoke to the sounds of pre-throw up RIGHT ABOVE MY HEAD. I sat up and saw Frou-Frou’s stomach heaving and I said to her “Not on the pillow!” right as she threw up. She then moved to the edge of the bed and threw up there. Aaron was grossed out – and with good reason – so we stripped the sheets and laid back on the OTHER half of the bed (the mattress even had a couple spots that had leaked through). That’s when he told me that the past two afternoons at lunch he’s had to clean up throw-up piles. However, he said those didn’t look anything like what Frou had just done. I suppose last night’s episode could have been from a hairball, but it was too late for me to analyze it too closely. I’ll have to check when I get home from work today.
Maybe they aren’t used to this food. Maybe it’s causing some pretty gross side effects. Or maybe they’ve been so hungry they’ve been over-eating. I’m going to call the vet today and see if they’ve figured out how to refund me my money and what they think is going on with my cats.
The cats are so lucky I love them!!
