barfing in the litterbox

This is a place to gain some understanding of cat behavior and to assist people in training their cats and dealing with common behavior problems, regardless of the method(s) used. Keep in mind that you may be receiving advice from other cat owners and lovers...not professionals. If you have a major problem, always seek the advice of a trainer or behaviorist!

Today Tiny was in the living room, dead asleep. She suddently jumped up, utterd a low "moooow" then ran like heck to her litterbox where she puked.

Of course i felt bad for her, but i was pretty impressed she ran to her litterbox to barf. Saved me from cleaning up a nasty stain on the rug (it was all liquidy...gross)

i had to share. no one else thinks its awesome my cat pukes in her litterbox. i think its great. (not that she barfed, but that it was in her box)

Shes fine,btw. just some canned food tummy upset.

Ringo would do that most time he had to puke. Tiny, I know you have been in bad shape. I hope you are lots better-I was worried.

On the few occasions that my cats have puked, they have also headed towards the litter box. At least with vomiting, where there is upchuck, regurgitation generally happens too quick for them to get there. Luckily, the dog who vomits often has learned to ask to go out to do so. dancing


I'm cute and I- know how to use- that :)

Can Tiny come teach Boris how to do that? I'm tired of cleaning off hairball stains from the carpet. I've gone through gallons of Nature's Miracle for sure. frown

Boris and Gracie's mom: I got one of those Bissell "Little Green Machines" which can spot clean carpets....and LOVE it!!! It is the best for cleaning up stains in carpets. Unfortunatley none of mine think to go to the litter box to barf, nor on any of the ceramic tile or laminate floors....just the bedroom carpet.
