Last night I barfed on the sofa. The BRAND NEW sofa. The Woman was not happy about it, but she cleaned it up anyway while I sat there feeling quite pleased with myself. I mean, I've managed to nail both the new rug and the new sofa in less than three weeks, I think.

The problem is that it wasn't a hairball. It was a total surprise--I was just curled up there taking a nap, minding my own business, when suddenly there it was. Barf.

While the Woman was sleeping last night I barfed again on the bathroom rug and then in the library. And this morning I didn't pester her to get out of bed to feed me, I just let her sleep. When she did get up to feed us...

Doods, you won't believe this.

She opened a can of tuna Stinky Goodness for me, but I didn't eat it. I didn't eat! I sniffed at it and licked it a couple of times, but I just didn't feel like eating.

She even tried giving me crunchy food, and then crunchy treats, but I just couldn't make myself eat.

I'm not sure how I got sick, but obviously, I'm just not feeling well. So I think I'll spend today napping on the bed with the fuzzy blanket, and hopefully after 8 or 9 hours of sleep I'll feel better.

I hope so, because not eating? That just isn't right.

We hope you feel better soon!! I (Kiara) hate those sneek-up-on-you barfs! That happened to me yesterday too. I was gettin' a drink at the bathroom sink when it hit me. I didn't efen make it off the counter!

Max, I am a bit worried about you. Can I temp you with some ham? If not, I think you need to get fixed up right away!!!

Oh, Max, this isn't good. Take care of yourself! We hope you don't need to go visit the Stabby Place.

Okay Max, did you eat something you shouldn't have?? My cat sister, Patches, did that once and it blocked her somehow so she could not eat without throwing up. YECH! The nice vet was able to fix her up and she came home. After a few days she was able to play with me again! Phew!! Good for that or I would have had no one to play with.

loadsa hugs PK....thinkin of yer!

Gracie did that a couple of weeks ago - she just didn't feel good, and kept barfing. Mom let her rest on her, and by the next day, she was all better. We will be purring that you just have the 24-hour flu. If not, you might have to go to the stabby place to get stabbed.

We hope you feel better very soon and start eating cuz you know what comes next if you don't. Yup, the
V E T, and you know where he shoves that tube thingie don't you.

Me and the Hotties hope you feel better soon! Can hardly imagine you not eating. Unless it's being finicky for something else.

Oh no, Max! We are so sorry you are feeling barfy and not eating. That's so not good dood! We are purring that you will feel much better very soon!

Max ate a little bit a few minutes ago; he couldn't resist the Elegant Feast Fancy Feast. and he doesn't seem to be running a fever...hopefully it was just a quick bug and he'll be back to his snarky self tomorrow.

Oh Max, hopefully just a quick off day. Somedays I don't each much either or a yak up and it doesn't mean anything.

Dood maybe it's a giant hairball? I have had issues recently. Hope you feel better!

I am sending you purrs, Max, and I don't do that for just **anybody** you know.

Max, I am glad that you got some Stinky Goodness down at last. I hope it is just a one day barf fest and that you feel much better tomorrow. Herman is sending you healing purrs.

I hope you feel better Max. You don't want to be carted off to the v-e-t or anything.

Glad to hear that you are eating again. Miss Pumpkin sends you purrs.

Yo Max, I hope you feel better soon! I hope you don't have to go to the stabby place.

Hope you start to feeling better soon, with all of the holiday fun coming up you will want to be in tip top shape. Take things easy and maybe soon you will be back to yourself.

U gota fell better soon! Christmas is on da way and buddha can't have all the fun. Purrs.

Dude, it is not normal to not want to eat, you should check into that or something....or I could just eat your food for you and we'll be golden. Either way, feel better!


aww Max, I sure hope you start eating soon a acuse I do not want to see my good buddies sick :(
Also.... they will take you to that scary place!!! and man you don't want that!!!
I will purr lots that you are feeling better soon .. please? :)))

thank you also for my birfday wishies :))

I sure hope you're feeling better soon. It's no fun being so sick you don't even want to eat.

Oh, man, awesome job on the barfing. PJ often likes to wake up our people with a good middle of the night barfing - they must really appreciate it cuz they jump right out of bed to find out where he left it. But not eating - man, that is not cool. We sure hope you are up to scarfing some stinky goodness and soon so that you don't have to go to the stabby place. Get lots of rest and feel better fast,k? We'll be sending you some special purr vibes.

We're glad to hear you've eaten a little since then and hope you're feeling all better. The Stabby Place would be a bad place to go...we think Callie is headed there tomorrow 'cause she's not really eating, either (but there was no pre-not-eating barfage involved...none that The Mommy has found, anyway... MOL).

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Dear Max, I hopes you're feeling better soon. Did Budha put something in your food? I have a new sister named Roxie and she's really evil. My humans are so clueless and my guess is that your humans think Budha's an angel too. Sympathy licks to you.

Love and scritches,

p.s. here's the real scoop about Roxie

Sympathy purrs to you Max. Hope you continue to feel better. Our mom's got an upset tummy today too.

Oh man, I hope you don't have that swine flu. I heard that cats are getting it now. Be well!

Max, we hope you are feeling better now...and enjoying your stinky goodness...

Max, in all seriosness, we think ya ought ta ASK to go to the V-E-T. We know that against all yer pricnipals!

Barfin is OK. Not eatin a day is OK, but barfins AND not eatin is worrisome. Get yerself checked out Dood.

We want ya ta stay around fer a while...

Hi- we thought we stop by. We just started blogging last week. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling very well -awesome aim though! Mom has hardwood floors, but we always ALWAYS aim for the area rugs! Hope you feel better soon!

Nico, Austin & JayJay :)

oh, dude--the meowers and i are furry distressed to hear you are all barfy an' stuff. a cat not eating is cause for much hand-wringing and brow-furrowing at our house, and we're sure it's the same at your place. we're purrin' and prayin' that you have just a li'l "gastric indisposition" that only lasts 24 hours, an' is no particular reason to visit the stabby place!

best wishes fur a speedy recovery--
the meowers & mom

Feel beter soon Max!

Max, we's all sending you lots and lots of Purrs and Purrayers.
Get well soon.
KC & Fambly

Yakking on the furnicher is fine. Not eating is not. Max buddy, I hope yoo start to feel better afore the Lady takes yoo to the V.E.T.! Purrs sent frum Hah-why-eee.

Hope you're feeling better, Max!

Ah, Max--that isn't good! I hope your nap takes care of you--if not--well...The good Vet will need to take a look at you. And do you like the new couch....?


We hope you are already feeling better! I (Junior) barfed this morning too and Meowm whipped out the cat lax and we both were given some....just in case.

Oh, I hope you feel better soon! My ex-roommate's cat barfed and vomited when she was sick and it wasn't fun for us, but I am sure it was much worse for her =(

Will you tell us what you have once you know it?

Max about two weeks ago I did the same thing, and adding to the barfin I was poopin too. I wouldn't eat anything either. Momma tried everything, and she watched me like a hawk cuz she was afraid she was gonna have to take me to ... the dreaded cursed V-E-T. Luckily that didn't happen. Next day I was pretty OK and I've been fine since. But Momma's get scared real easy when we don't eat. So, I hope you feel all better now.

Everyone barfs sometimes. probably a bug, you will feel better soon. I will be purring for you to feel good soon.

Hope you feel better soon Max.

my kitty has been the same way the last few days. Barfing all over the bedroom and living room carpets and refusing to eat her food.

I do hope you feel better soon, its no fun to be a sick kitty.
