Damn Cats

My wife and I bought some new furniture when we moved into our house. Two of our cats seem to like scratching on one of the chairs. Little hairs are starting to appear. We’ve tried spraying a stop scratching spray, taking them over to the scratching post instead, and yelling. My wife is out of town for a bit right now and wanted me to preserve the situation until she can try additional things when she gets back, maybe stop scratching tape or putting a new cat tree right by the chair.

So I threw a blanket on the chair.

This is, of course, the two biggest cats. Both pretty muscular, one weighs 16 pounds (I know, but the vet said he could only really stand to lose a pound or two. Trust me, he’s pretty solid when you try to pick him up). As such, they can do a number on that chair.

So the blanket is a good solution right? They can’t get to the chair and thus can’t scratch it. Problem temporarily solved, right? Situation preserved until my wife returns?

The cats threw up on the blanket.

Not even on the top, the front. It looked like one of the cats sat down in front of the chair, faced it, and threw up forward.

Damn cats.
