Sometimes you just got to laugh!
So we have a senior cat of 17 years who is not able to jump over a gate, hence the cat box is open access to the dogs when we are home. My husband and I can usually get the cat deposits. Yes, sometimes we don't and one of the dogs gets a feast. Well I caught little 3.5 pound Prince with a huge cat turd today. Next thing I know he is throwing up, he threw up three times. Let me tell you, I have never seen something so disgusting in my life. Looked and smelled like a cat turd mixed with vomit. Luckily most was on the hard wood floors but some on his bed. I now have the bed cover in the sanitize cycle of the washer. All I can say is after owning cats and cleaning up many messes this one rated right up there. On the bright side I have had Lady since May and Prince since October and this is the first dog throw up episode we have had. So I guess this is just part of dog ownership. What would have been really gross would be if Lady ate what Prince threw up....sorry, hope I didn't gross anyone out with this post. I am just laughing at the situation and wishing their was a solution. I thought about the auto litterboxes but dang the pups are quick. They would likely get to cats deposits before the litterbox could clear since the boxes have a delay. If anyone else has a cat box suggestion I would love to hear it (senior cat who can't jump over a barrier).
