How do you feed her vasoline? There's some hairball lube in a tube you can buy but i don't think it works very well.

It's Hill's T/D prescription cat food. I buy it at my vets office. It's called a dental food because usually cats who just swallow their food have horrible teeth problems.

Never feed "stray cats", they just keep coming back. The same principle applies to ugly chicks, which just happen to go by the same name in my circle of friends from college. Everyone has had beer goggles and made some sort of transgression :(

ours does that and then re-eats it.

the other day i was in a rush to get out the door and saw a telltale pile of barfed food (nearly intact and slimy) and then when I came home it was mysteriously gone and nobody had cleaned it up.

Sounds like a win win situation to me.

My cat just doesn't shut up in the morning till we feed him.

Could be far worse. My mother has a pair of Boston Terriers who believe that one complete trip through the digestive and excretory process is not sufficient.

Speaking of re-feeding… I went to a rib joint, ate a full rack of babybacks, a side of beans, garlic bread. 2 hours later I wasn’t feeling so hot and I yacked the whole meal onto my back patio, nice neat pile. My 7 lb. cat came along and powered through the whole pile in a couple minutes. Probably ate 10% of his body weight. Seemed like a lot food for such a small animal. He’s dead now, but he lived to 22yrs. He ruled.

Hilarious. My cats both do the laser pointer/any click sends them hunting as well as throwing up whole food.

Both of mine were strays at one point, one a starved stray (below), he eats normal now though...

One of our cats did that in front of me once. She ate most of it...walked around and came back for 2nds. I'm sure they do it more then we know when we are not around. One of them went through a yacking stage awhile back. Everytime you'd hear the tell-tale "urrrrp urrrrp urrrrp" the other one could come running and watch..wtf?

How do you guys feel about indoor cats? My last cat spent most of his life outside, so I have no experience with indoor-only cats. I want to get a new cat but he'd get his *** beat outside where I'm living currently. Thoughts? Is it humane? Do they need a partner to keep sane?
Thanks

Indoor cats have much longer lives than outdoor cats. However if you keep your cat indoors only for years then start letting them out they wont go much farther than the yard. Our cat goes as far as the neighbor's yard and thats it. We also have cats all over the neighborhood and he seems fine with them for the most part. Cats like to be social with other cats and it will make them require less attention from you.

We dont let our cat outside at night because he is black and we have lots of racoons.

I know WTF is up with that? I have a full open concrete basement, and hardwood floors on the main floor. In my hallway I have this long rug that runs down the middle and they ONLY BARF ON THE FREAKING RUG!!! AGHZ DIE!!

The worst is waking up in the morning, opening the door, stepping into the hallway and then finding your bare foot in a pile of undigested moist cat food.

Here's my lazy *** cats. The stupid one is the white one.
