THe ReTuRNS




Hello Chickens: I hope you all had a Very Merry!! We had a wonderful Christmas and returned yesterday (along with some socks and a shirt that was too big.)

Driving home, The Spawn were oddly quiet. A half hour into the trip, Bananna commented that the pears she had been eating were delicious. Five minutes later it dawned on me that I had not packed pears. Bananna had managed to locate some sliced apples that had been languishing in a ziploc baggie in the backseat for Lord Knows How Many Days. Brown, fuzzy, mold covered apple slices that apparently tasted somewhat like pears. The only thing that offset the horror at what she had ingested just a wee bit was the thought that she might not need another tetnus shot for five or six years.

I will spare you the details of the vomiting that took place later that night, but it was not the only regurgitation going on at Chez Veasey. While we were away, the cats had decided to express their displeasure in being left alone for the holidays by practicing some tag team vomiting. They targeted our bed, paying special attention to our pillows. Because nothing says "Welcome Home, Boy-I'll bet you're tired!" like a mattress and bedding covered in cat puke.

I dreamed of tuna fish sandwiches when I finally went to sleep--coincidence?

Poor Child! That's just awful. But then tuna sandwiches sound pretty bad about right now also.

P.S. Try the Hardy Boys.

Jennifer said...

That whole story just made me sad. Sad for Banana, sad that you had to clean up cat puke.

Hi, I'm Amy! said...

Oh, gross! Sorry, but GROSS!

I got one of your turtles for Christmas. When I got it I told everyone in the room that I know the person who designed this, on the internet and they all made fun of me. Awesome!

Mambinki said...

How awful! Too bad your cats aren't like mine- my cat Cuphead just eats the puke, whether it is her puke or Bob's puke so I never really know that it happens unless I'm right there to witness. Gross, eh.

Shonda Little said...

My kids puked everywhere, but I think cat puke tops that. Wow, that is a welcome mat.

yeek freeak !! this is just too horrid !!

you poor mama you, your poor banana baby, poor dadda, poor c boy ....

maybe those cats need some pay back - point B girl their way .... see I'm a dog person and dogs are kinda cool when they puke - they just tend to much it back up and have a second go ....

my new year hugs to you le xoxoxo

We had vomit for Christmas too. Perhaps I should get around to feeding the family something besides Jelly Bellies and Chocolate Oranges. Hey, are you having an after Christmas Clearance sale?

KLS said...

Yum, I'm not having breakfast now! Haha!

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Ick... that sounds awful! My daughter will pick up random food items and eat them too. I'm glad she hasn't come across moldy apples yet. LOL.

Miss Thystle said...

And now I remember why I DO NOT have kitty cats.

For Christmas, *I* got the plague. Jealous, much?

Carol said...

Sounds like you had a National Lampoon holiday! :)

Scandalous Housewife said...

On a positive note, the vomiting could be a great kick off the New Year diet plan. Let's see, do I have some rotten apples in the fruit bowl...

blairspage said...

WOW... haven't dealt with puke in a while and never dealt with cat puke! Except outside where the cat resides! EWE! I'm glad you had a great Christmas!

Hugs - Tiffany

Jane! said...

Eww! Must be the season... I stepped in something on the stairs yesterday.
I think we should ALL start our blogs with the chickens thing just to irritate Miss T.

Rachel@just another day in paradise said...

I'm thinking she ingested enough "antibiotic" to keep her well the rest of the winter. . .

Gawd, Happy Holidays!

About a month ago, Troy found a bottle that had rolled under his crib. It had been there for a few and had an ounce of spoiled milk in it and I caught him drinking it. And by drinking it, I mean happily finishing it. He threw up about an hour later and was fine. Please take comfort in knowing that I too poisoned my child by my complete lack of parental supervision.

Sorry about your pillows.

Everyone stayed well in our household over Xmas, mostly due to A.I.T (Alcohol Innoculation Therapy). Bailey's is a well-known antidote for flu / stomach bugs / unwelcome relatives. They all either stay away or you don't care anyway. It's a win / win.

Sabrae Carter said...

Yea that was just gross. LOL! Pears huh??? So rotting apple slices taste like pears...I'll take the kids word for it! lol Oh dont you just love cats???

Bj in Dallas said...

LV! Back too from the great beyond and have the HOLIDAZE behind me...complete without puke (sorry about the pear puke) and then the cat puke. You need Bella. She would eat everything before you got home.
talk soon- Happy NY!!

jill said...

yep....that'll teach me to eat breakfast before visiting blogland...ewwwwwwwww

LuckyMe said...

Alrighty then, I can scratch cats off my list. I had no idea I was so lucky to have a puke free Christmas. I'm just amazed fuzzy apples tasted good enough to eat. Poor banana...Feel better!

jenx67 said...

bless your heart. this is actually sounding oddly familiar - as if at some point in my life i have had to contend with either animal puke or people puke on my pillow. either way, it's all bad. But, God bless the kittys anyway. you and the fam, too. Happy New Year!
