TMP19: Gatsby

TMP monday peeve

Welcome to my refreshed Monday Peeve! Unburden yourself of an annoyance and you’ll feel better afterward. Or not. Complain in my comments or crab in your own post. Doesn’t have to be on a Monday. You do you.

I love my kitty Gatsby so much, but I get so damn annoyed that he periodically noms on my plants and then throws up. I am sure there’s some biological reason he does this, but I don’t care. It’s super-irritating and my poor plant leaves are all raggedy. Not to mention I have to use a bunch of paper towels to clean up the mess. GRRRR!

Yeah, it’s a short peeve this week because (A) it just happened, (B) otherwise nothing has bugged me too much, and (C) I am tired. Writing this Sunday night… see you on the flip side.

  1. Our Kitty has demolished 2 indoor plants. They are outside now, trying to recover.

  2. You’d think he would learn the connection between the plants and the throwing up.

  3. Here’s what gets me. You know how cats see those inter-dimensional portals and use them to hide from us by going to the other dimension? Why don’t they throw up over there instead?
    Or bring back those socks*?? Don’t get me started.

    * Apparently the portals move around and frequently appear in the clothes dryer.

  4. I don’t blame you for gripping about Gatsby’s plant-eating behavior. Cleaning up cat vomit on a Monday morning would have me ranting too, He should know better, since it happens every time. You must love that cat a lot.

  6. Don’t know what kind of plants they were but cats eats grass (and then barf) to help with upset stomachs. Depending on the plants, some are poisonous to cats…

  7. Grow some cat grass. Kitties need it to make them barf up the hairballs – or terrify us. Something like that. But grow some grass to protect your plants. They and Gatsby will love you for it.

  9. This is so funny, not funny, because l totally get the frustration, l used to have a cat that did this also Pepsi – her brother Barron left the plants alone, but Pepsi destroyed everything.

    No the reason it’s funny, is because l am in the middle of purging thousands on posts and squashing and knocking on the head many series … but l am keeping several series back for sentimental reasons but next month sometime or this month who knows – l will update the ‘all’ l am keeping to ‘Block editor.

    I found this during my travels 🙂

  10. Sorry l meant to add, that Gatsby is eating the plant for aiding digestion to a certain degree, but cats cannot digest everything they consume, so they then vomit out what they can’t digest.
