Puke Box

For cats.

My cat has a way of puking all over the carpet. I presume she likes to puke on carpet, so why not make a little litter box type of thing but instead of litter its the finest carpet practically ever. The little devil will think she's really taking home gold when she pukes all over this 2x2 foot square piece of something I paid 20 bucks for at the petstore, but really I had it planned all along.... Muahahahahaaaaahahaaaa!!!!!!!!

edit: we might be able to use bluetooth to somehow control a cat's gag reflex, if this dosen't work out.

       $20? Seems a lot for a piece of puke carpet. But I think the real problem here is encapsulated in the first 2 words of the description.

       20 USD, yes. The unit would be washable, reusable... Some handy material science will have to be performed to optimize the carpetishness for cat hurling while preserving reusability; not an easy task I imagine, hence the price.

       they think they're doing you a favour by puking on something that will soak it up... or at least trying to minimize their own "ick" factor if they step in it at a later time.

       There must be some way to work in Schroedinger here.

       I can't help she has a drug problem, too, [skinflaps]. At least that's what I thought she had so I bought her some. It definitely stopped the crying.

       Trying to outsmart a cat? There's just no way.

       There's no snooze button on a cat.
skinflaps, Aug 12 2009
  

       Just get a catflap with an "eject" button .....

       The cat will know the carpet is expendable and therefore won't use it. I don't know how they know, they just do.

       They know because they are the incarnation of pure Evil.

       I saw the title, and was reminded of the vicar's sermon:
"The congregation is reminded again that the box at the back of the church labelled "For the Sick" is intended for monetary contributions."

       We never thought we'd say this, but our enemy's enemy is our friend .....

       Shouldn't this scale of warring be equipped with some sort of protocol? Decency? Men with bayonettes all standing in line?? Instead we throw brackets up and make moves with haste. How disgusting.. Aww, screw it! Let's get 'em Xen!<<unsheaths sword and stabs into the ground, summoning Pickles the gigantic Cat Lord with laser beams mounted on his megawhiskers>>

       I always judge people by their reaction to cats.
xenzag, Aug 13 2009
  

       So do we.
8th of 7, Aug 13 2009
  

       So do they.

       I find the company of cats infinitely preferable to that of most humans. Many local cats also frequently choose my company over that of their owners. I take this as a compliment.

       They're just waiting for you to die, so they can eat your face.

       You know the thought of the cat flap "eject button" option sounds kind of cool. I envisioned myself punching the GO button, while Claire stood in front of the flap. Suddenly she would be catapulted in the air, over the dog house, over the bird house, over the garage, and right onto 8th of 7's big fat head. YAY. 10 POINTS FOR CLAIRE.   

       Next up... my new house mate's cat, [monkey].
