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.

Eww! You wash your hands thoroughly, mister!

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.

Was the Ocras? Hope things are well.

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.
