Hello carrot. I see you have an a poster account here. Welcome!
I like to chew stuff too - I have not tried a table leg yet. Maybe

yeah. Someone on the beardie forum suggested it. They, like me, had previously tried the spray on Bitrex stuff...and their puppeh, like mine, had actually found it to be rather tasty.

So, they suggested Vicks for the hard furnishings and walls, and Olbas oil for soft furnishings and shoes.

I feel like I am living inside a fucking cough drop.

He was at it again this morning. Tried for my nose this time. Lick, lick, snuggle - NIP.

Not my nip of course, my nose. Although he has had a chomp there before.

I really don't know what it is, it's new behaviour.
He's all dribbly as well, trying to fit his whole head under my chin.
I don't like it. He doesn't do it during the day, only in the early hours of the morning.
I don't know if it's a feeding prompt...?

I could do with living inside a cough drop, so maybe I will try it!

How come Diz throws up so much? I've never had a cat that threw up more than once every few years, when they were legitimately ill.

I don't know. Tajjy could barf her face off every three seconds if she wanted. She'd eat too fast or something. Gaines never barfed except a couple times: once when I used to keep plants and once or twice when he was older.

Some cats are good barfers!

Diz has always been a sicky boy.
He likes it best if he can throw up over the side of something. Standing on a kitchen chair (where he is not allowed) or over the side of my bed.

He has been through a worrying period recently, but I think the Palin incident was the last. It's not been long enough for the carpet spray to make its way back downstairs, but I no longer feel the need to watch him for half an hour after every meal now.

When we had a cat, she would throw up at least once a month. Usually once a week. It was the worst sound, when you were lying in bed at night and you hear the cat puking, and you wonder where it was and hoped you wouldn't step in it the next morning.

And she would never do it on the kitchen or bathroom floors, where it would be easy to clean up. Always the rug. And she would back up and keep puking the whole time, so there would be a trail.

The silver lining is that I became a freakin expert at getting stains out of a carpet. Shop vac, bucket of clean water, sponge. No soap.

I'm glad we don't have a cat any more.

GF's cats throws up ALL THE TIME.
A week doesn't go by without her having to clean it up.
I have three and if one pukes, they're outta the house for the day.
I deal with that maybe 2x a year total.
