Why fish make better pets
You know it's going to be one of those days when you're pulling 18 inch pieces of poo-covered yarn out of your cat's arse before you've even gotten out of bed in the morning.
LOL....reminds me of one certain christmas where silvery tinsel somehow made its way into the cat. It sparkled...how Glam!

Hey Rob, remember when I had long hair, and the cats would eat it? They would run around the house, terrified by the poo that was chasing them, attached to their bums by a hair. Eeeeew.
Peter tells me that as a kid he used to chase his cat, trying to step on the tinsel.

Ugh what a way to start the day. And you wonder why I don't like cats :)

Please be careful, although I'm sure you know what you are doing, I've heard stories about the yarn yanking on their intestines when being pulled out and causing serious damage. Thinking good thoughts for your kitties.

With the image of Poo-Yarn now burned into my brain, I'll probably never complain about cleaning up Kitty-Yarn-Ball-Barf again. I've gotten much better (almost anal--doh!) at hiding my stash and clippings :-D

Jodi, I think that that is the best blog entry I've ready on any blog so far! Priceless.

hahaha - gross! The same thing happened to a friend of mine when her cats decided to eat/unravel the end of her squishy chenille bathrobe!

one thanksgiving, our cat ate the string we'd tied up the turkey with... yeah... that was fun.

Thanks for the...um....unforgettable mental picture.

Hey, belated congrats on the move to Madison. If you want any advice (where are good neighborhoods to live in, where are the good coffee shop, yarn shop, etc) email me. I live in Cali now but am back in my hometown Madison all the time and still consider it home.
I can't think of a thing to say about the cat. Ack.

I find it oddly comforting that I am not the only one that this has happened to. Only I freaked out when the string just kept coming and took the cat to the vet. The vet said the string was two feet long! Dumb cat.

I remember once looking at our small dog in the backyard and wondering what she was dragging out of her back end. Turns out it was an incredibly long piece of clothesline.
It's a wonder it didn't kill here. It just...kept...coming...out...
