An Open Letter

Dear Isaac (aka Isaacness, or ness for short),

I realize, being a cat and all, you can’t really read…but why must you puke on our carpet at the most inconvenient times? I mean, you can’t do it while we’re just sitting around doing nothing. Nope – it’s got to be while we’re sleeping (so we forget about it and end up stepping in it) or just as we’re running out the door.

No wonder you’re so hungry all the time! I mean, damn – you’re bordering on bulimia here. How about you eat a bit slower so I don’t have to clean up after you every second day? It’s to the point where I just want to put it back in your dish so you can eat it again.

It’s a good thing you’re cute, and that you have your daddy to protect you.

your humble owner

PS: Izzie, don’t think you’re getting off scot-free – you’re next!

  1. hm, sometimes the puking indicates something is wrong. Or as you said, maybe just too much food too fast?!

    In any event, one of the reasons I am not a happy cat owner (no puking in my house) 😉 But he looks gorgeous!! cutie cat 🙂


  2. Chall – we've talked to the vet about it, and he hasn't found anything wrong with him. In fact, he's a very healthy cat. We think he just gets carried away and eats way too fast.

    As dumb as it sounds, if we pet him and tell him “not to puke” before we feed him, he doesn't! LOL


  3. Has this happened his whole life, or been a more recent development? My parents had the same problem with one of their cats — no other symptoms, just started eating her food way too fast and would vomit it back up. Turned out to be a thyroid problem that was causing her to feel like she was starving all the time, so she would scarf down her food the second it came out. Vet didn't realize until about 5 months after my parents initially brought it up, when the cat started losing weight. Now she is on thyroid pills 2x/day and much better.


  4. LOL. Nothing more frustrating that puking pets.


  5. EB – he's been doing this since he was a kitten. It's kind of worse now, because we no longer leave dry food out for them (our vet told us that was a big no-no). So, now we feed them wet food a couple times a day. We find that he eats really fast sometimes – especially if he ate the other food earlier than usual.

    In any case, the vet says there is nothing wrong with him. He's just a doofus 🙂


  6. Ugh, that sucks. One of our cats (I don't know which one) specialises in puking just inside the front and back doors – so you step in it without even seeing it when you come in. But luckily a) it's not that frequent and b) we have laminate floors, and the doormats are washable.

    One of them also peed on the floor, for no particular reason, on Sunday. First time ever. I have no idea why. The litter boxes had ~24 hours worth of “stuff” in them, so it's not like they were filthy…
