Tasks I Never Thought I'd Find Myself Attempting, Let Alone Successfully Completing:

Catching cat vomit in my bare hand to keep from having to clean an expensive floor rug.

No kidding! First thing I did.

Seriously ... I have absolutely no idea what this says about me or how the hell to react*. I mean, should I be proud of the feat of athleticism? Should I be ashamed that I even contemplated that sentence? Am I now economically upper-class, since I've got an expensive rug to save? Am I now economically lower-class, since I don't have an instinctive revulsion to cat vomit? Am I materialistic, that I value my possessions that highly? Am I empathetic, that I grabbed for the vomit instead of roughly seizing and hurtling the cat out of the way?

Or am I just grossing the hell out of everyone and should stop talking about it now? :-p

* n.b.: "Jesus Christ, you sick bastard! Get away from me!" is right out. Since I'd have to say it to myself, and that wouldn't make any sense.

It was. :-( But it was mostly hairball, so it may not indicate any underlying worsening of his sickness.

(Just finished a second post wrapping up the weekend, btw.)

I'm not certain if you deserve a medal or a psych evaluation for that, but damn that's hardcore.

Oh. I'm... _not_ the only one who's done that? (My bed, not expensive carpet, but it's the same principle)That's a relief.

Speaking from experience, it's better to have a sweater or a Ziplock baggie for these things. Install at least a few in every room. I hate cat puke...

Me, I'd try and shove a magazine or paper under the cats nose and the bugger would then turn and puke to the side....

Is it me? I am currently visualizing doing a "high five" immediately afterwards in celebration *splotch*

My brother recently learned how to mimic the "hoo puc, hoo puc, hoo puc" sound of a heaving cat. Shudder. He's not the one who has to clean it up, either.

... Technically, I didn't catch all of it with my bare hand. Some went on my sleeve. So a high five would have resulted in some coming off my wrist and getting someone in the face.

*shakes fist* You are evil, r caton. Evil.
