Thor's Day!

Cats throwing up. Yarking is what we call it about here. There is an exact protocol to follow. First, you must yark the nastiest load on the most expensive sofa/chair or rug in the house. Then you must move down the the next level, hardwood floors, tile floors - hide those a bit so the flavor has chance to soak it real good. If a human tries to put a cloth in front of you, give it your best yark show and at the last second, turn your head and yark one inch off the cloth. Extra points for yark they don't find until barefoot coming down the hall one dark and creepy night.

Thor sez: This is not amusing.

Thor sez: Really, I don't talk about your private foibles.

Thor sez: Hmmph. You don't know the half of it. Yarks you never even see. Until I want you to.

I remember finding yarks when we had cats when I was a kid. It was always the barefoot/middle of the night incident. Eww.

Barefoot seems to be the rule here too. I have found a great product for cleaning them up....they come in a plastic bucket dispenser....they are called WyPalls...I don't sell them...and I know that we only get them thru my husbands office....but they work great...my precious grandchildren spilled BBQ sauce in the back seat of my car (yes I let them eat chicken nuggets in the car)....any-way...I didn't know they had spilled it for about 2 weeks....WyPall got every drop off of my cloth seats leaving NO stain!! and they are great for yarks on floor or furniture.

Joy. Squishy cold hairball yark between the toes. Thor seems to have slowed down on the yark-a-fest since we dragged him to the vet. And we are force feeding him hairball remedy goop.

Pam, thanks for the tip. I'll try to locate some.

Love the term "yark"! I'm going to start calling it that in the middle of the night too.
