Cheap, throwaway, plastic cat barf scraper.

       Almost done. I use a dedicated spatula and dust pan. it works so well doesn't it? Leaves just a little color so retrieving the steam cleaner can be done at a more convenient time.   

       I think you got a winner if you package them in counts of ten each with it's own disposable baggy.

       Tsk, tsk. Plastic *and* disposable? How about paper (cardboard) of some type? Better yet, take kitty to the vet.

       cats take a good five minutes to throw up their hairballs or whatever. plenty of time to run and find a sheet of newspaper. you shove it down in front of them and they turn their head away each time. what you really need is one of those plastic baby feeding bibs with the upturned bottom edge.

       Actually I don't have a cat. I was describing my solution to my delicate Great Dane's barfing habits. She doesn't give me five minutes warning. Usually there are two gutteral escapement sounds and then three near perfect cups of dog food on the first hurl.

       for some reason that reminds me of buckets, spades and sandcastles <obligatory flag on top>

       dustin is a non-hurler, has only yaked once since the adoption, however I can sympathize, his predecessor was a chronic barfer.   

(The one time he did, I used the [po] school of run and paper gather, he heaved, and he heaved, and he sounded like his stomach was halfway out along with his liver and pancreas, but lo and behold, when he finally finished, there was nothing but a dime sized glob of spit. So go figure.)

       drama queen!

       If your lucky you can hear the warning sounds and put a paper under them, but sometimes you wake up to find a frog leg, mouse head, etc.

       I love cats. But when they barf, it is not fun. You shouldn't need to touch the stuff! But cats need respect.

       [po], that would probably be "drag drama queen".

       {Points to numerous cat barf crusty spots on floor)   

       Sign me up. I'll take 300.

       // Put a freezer bag over your hand like a glove //   

       Put a freezer bag over their head like a helmet ? Fasten around neck ? With Ty-Rap ?   

       Why do they choose to throw up under the exact geometric centre of double beds ? It's as if the little bu88ers know how to cause the most trouble.
