Friday Funny 01/06 2017 (Cats)

If you don't own a cat, or don't want to contemplate a gross aspect of cat ownership, this post is NOT for you. Close this page now, and move along in your web-surfing. 

Whether they live in a house, a barn, a kennel, or a boat, cats are the same everywhere.

Watch your step.
We have the two cats, Gus, who is a short haired tabby, and Elsie, who is a long haired tuxedo. Gus rarely vomits, but we can count on Elsie to hork up a hairball at least once a week. How disgusting. She refuses all hairball medicine.... no dice, nothing doin', can't make me.

Don't even try it!

Usually in the middle of the night, we hear,  "ack ack, hork, hork", and someone has to get up, and clean the floor, or suffer the consequences in the morning. It's too easy to forget all about the night's surprise, and you can guarantee to find it by stepping in it. One night I heard her making "the noise", and she was on the foot of the bed, I kicked her off to the floor, with a loud thump. She got her revenge. When Bill got up the next morning, she had thrown up all over my computer on the table. You can thank me now, no photos, (and thank you Bill for cleaning it up before I got out of bed)

The decision of the day.

Wouldn't life be easier if you could catch them in the act, right away?

You never know what you'll find on the internet.

This past week or so, we have had guests, shared bunches of fun, and enjoyed the visits. Elsie mostly cooperated by vomiting before they arrived, so we thought we were home free while other people lived with us on the boat. Just wishful thinking. "Thanks Elsie, for the extra laundry, the bed-cover, the fleece blanket, and the extra fleece blanket."

However, the bottom line is that we love our animals, enjoy their companionship, laugh at their antics, and we wouldn't give them up for anything.

A foot snuggle

An arm snuggle, (my daughter and her cat, Beyza)

And who could say no to this face?

Our Gusters

Or this face? My childhood kitty, Tigger.

Denali Rose just wouldn't be the same without them.

Elsie following the instructions on the boat behind her.

Gus relaxing at anchor.

Who us? We're angels.

(PS, not feeling too charitable this morning..... stepped in it 😒)


  1. What a great post! Having had a cat in the home for most of my life, I know exactly what you're saying.

    Thanks for the laugh,

  2. Thanks, and you're welcome! Maybe you could have one on your canal boat?

  3. I love this post! I really miss our animals now that we live aboard. I was blessed to be able to live with a cat one more time as the kids adopted Boots, a completely black cat with yellow eyes. I miss her sassy antics so much. In terms of vomiting, that would be Skippy. He's a nervous fellow and any kind of emotional upset, whether happy or sad, will have him vomiting. I kind of do not miss that, in spite of how much I miss the little guy in general. Love your kitties!

    1. Thanks! It must be both satisfying, and heartbreaking to know that you are doing the best for Skippy by leaving him behind. He is a very cute puppy.

  4. I've stepped in a pile of the stuff more than once. Ick! Adorable kitty photos :-)

    1. Ick is a good way to express it! We were in some "sporty" weather this last week, short choppy, 2's, 3's, and some 4's, winds 20 gusting to 30, and we were motoring back to the marina. I was wondering if anyone would get seasick. Someone did. :-(
