HAPPY MONDAY!

BOO HEADCOLD!

i called in sick today, cuz, well.. i AM sick. i'm sure they're all sorts of pissed, but hell. if calling at 7 am when i don't have to be in until 3pm doesn't give them enough advanced notice, well then i pick my nose in their general direction.

i want to find more pictures to post, because i had fun sharing the ones from over the weekend. if you only read livejournal during the week and not on weekends, you can find them here, aaaand here, aaaaand here! i'm still amazed at the wide variety of pictures i found in a random stack on my desk.

i need to clean my room.

speaking of CLEAN, i also need to launder my bedding today. i went to climb into bed last night and found a PRECIOUS gigantic pile of massively saliva-ey cat vomit on my cover sheet and comforter. well, at least Bacci threw up on TOP of the covers, i suppose. silly kitties and their gifts. maybe she leaves piles of vomit since she's an indoor cat and can't drop me an occasional bird? i hope there's nothing wrong with her. she doesn't act sick at all, but she throws up several times a day and now has liquid poo.

What type of food do you feed Bacci?

My cat had the exact same problem until I switched her food. I started her on this new Purina Cat Chow-Indoor Formla.

She used to throw up food 4-5 times a week. Over the last 1.5 months, she's only thrown up hairballs and very little food.

i was thinking that maybe it was the food... ever since we had gotten her, we have fed her Alley Cat, until we were out at Wal*Mart one day and they didn't have it, and poor poor bacci was hongray, so we picked up a small bag of Special Kitty. After that was gone, we got her a GINOURMOUS bag of Alley Cat, which she wouldn't eat at first. maybe Wal*Mart is so evil that they put kitty crack in their food and she's suffering withdrawals? ;)

we're also trying to do other things in the mean time to try to rule out the food, i.e. keep the toilet bowls closed, keep the kitchen floor clean, etc. i swear, that cat is a vacuum, for not liking human food.

i guess she just doesn't like human food unless it's knocked in a corner and forgotten about for a week, until it becomes 'gourmet'?

we also desperately need to get our fridge replaced, as it's leaking, so maybe she's drinking some of that goo, too.

thankfully, my kitty got better after we changed her food and litter back to the cheap stuff instead of the fou fou junk ;)

i feel like crap today, but that's because i'm freaking the hell out about portland public transit and am tired as all get-out from sleeping like dookie last night.

:-( I couldn't fall asleep last night either, I was so wired on sugar and tea.
My cats use the 'stuff in the middle' food, it's not the grocery store food and its' not really froo froo. And most of the time they do ok but sometimes Lily has issues. That's probably how the 'someone smells like poop' thing got started because I would say that and give her attention which she liked. meh. Poop crazy cat!

i finally broke down and invested in some iams, because i hear that it's so much better for them that they get fuller with good food faster (instead of filler) so they eat less and thusly poop less. it took a bit, but wow, did it work! still pees like a horse, but at least the dooky hath slowed.

i was afraid that if i bought a $15 small bag of catfood that botch wouldn't touch it, but the night i brought it home, i was on the computer and kept hearing a scritch. scritch. crinkle. behind me. i turned around and saw that bacci had pushed the bag over and was scratching underneath it to try to figure out how to open the bag. so thankfully, she liked it.

HAHA Lily will actually gnaw a hole in the bottom of the bag like a rat, so I have to put the bag up where they can't get at it.

I can relate
Sorry to hear that. I hope you feel better soon. *hugs her*

I wish I was home myself. I'm not sick but stress is high at work. I might tell you about it sometime.

I so know that feeling. My male cat, Lucifer, used my bed as his litter box a couple of weeks ago. I was seriously tempted to see if he could fly. The little shit is lucky that I love him. *chuckles*

Re: I can relate
*looks sideways at the furballs in question*

Do tell. I'm thinking of buying wireless headphones. It'd be cheaper. Trust me.

*looks at them again*

The last time they destroyed my headphones I seriously considered shaving them bald. For about three seconds but I honestly thought about it.

*looks again*

Shit. Now they're being all cutesy. *sighs theatrically*

Re: I can relate
thankfully, bacci doesn't like to chew on cords, unlike some of the cats i had in the past. she just likes to eat the plastic that is around cigarette packs, which my stupid brother leaves lying around a lot.

Ewwwww, cat spit...

indeed. i can't handle spit of any kind.

which is why the idea of ever becoming a dentist or dental assistant scares the bejeebers out of me.

My first thought was food, also, but she really might just have a virus of some sort, and not be acting sick, because, well, she's a cat, and has the attention span of a cracked-out mayfly. Something similar happened with my friend Kat's cats recently; she was almost getting worried and then it just stopped. So either the cat got over a bug, or it self-corrected whatever stupid-ass behavior it had gotten into.

i'm thinking that a lot of what was wrong with her was the fact that we changed her food from one really super cheap brand to another really super cheap brand. the second we changed back, All Was Good, Ja.

cept her freaking ability to constantly seem in heat. cheez. as soon as i get my taxes, mark my words...

... well, i'll pay a lot of bills that i've fallen behind on due to severely cut hours at work, but then... THEN...

...well, my glasses ARE over three years old now, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to see...

.. but THEN...

if i have anything left over... (though it would really be nice to have a BED to sleep in...)

hrm.

Yes, pictures are the best next to the real thing!

Don't let that go on too long with your cat, I'm afraid about her getting the neccessary nutients and such.

in retrospect, methinks that she was vomiting because we changed her food on her. she's a very... different cat than any that i've had before, because she will ONLY eat cat food, nothing else, and only the Alley Cat brand. we needed some and were at wal*mart, which didn't have alley cat, so i picked her up another cheapo brand.. she vomited until two weeks after we switched back.

thanks for inadvertantly reminding me that i needed to take my clothes out of the washer and put them into the dryer :D

and thank you for reminding me that i need to get her fixed! though i always think of these things when it's too late in the day to do any of them!

years of my cat vomiting repeatedly was actually a sign of the tumor growing in her intestines. i'd take her to a vet and get their opinion. we didn't with my kitty until it was too late :(

i'm thinking that it was the fact that we changed her food... she kept doing that until we ran out of that crap (wal*mart brand - how DARE i think of feeding her that?!?) and switched back to her other stuff.

now, it's just the occasional hairball in random places, much like any other kitty!

we discovered later on that it was most likely because we HAD changed her food on her. no more cheap ass wal*mart food for my little girl! only the best cheap as WinCo food for bacci-boo!
