Caturday: Filthy Beasties Edition
Yes we like our nasty little furballs.
You have to admit, cats are not all warm fuzzy and hilarity 24/7.
No, there is that dirty, nasty side to cats that doesn't always get a lot of attention.
Take for example, the obvious;
The Cat Box.
Oy. This is a gag inducing item worthy of a post in itself.
If you have multiple cats, you know your ass is pressed into service on a regular basis taking care of that mess.
Then there is the little item that has been so benignly labeled as shedding.
How cute, the cat is shedding.
My fucking cat sheds enough fur every three days by itself that I keep looking for another cat.Why isn't that sonofabitch bald? How fast does that shit grow anyway?
Has science looked into this? The hair club for men? Anyone?
That shit is unnatural.
This leads me to the next inevitable cat atrocity, The Hairball.
My God the noises that come out of a cat trying to hack up a furball.
Hork, Hork, Gag, Gag, you can hear it's guts traveling back and forth inside it's body from one end to the other trying to hurk that thing up, preferably in front of company, on the carpet, of course.
Now we come to the latest bit of nastiness, just being reported,
now I find the little traveling flea hotel has some REAL nasties crawling around in it, on it, I don't really want to know where they are at.

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Picking up an E. coli bug from your pet might lead to a urinary tract infection, according to Minneapolis-based researchers.
"Sharing of E. coli strains among humans and pets within a household, including strains that can cause urinary tract infections, is extremely common," Dr. James R. Johnson told Reuters Health.
That's it, get the welding gloves and the leather apron,
IT'S BATH TIME.
Hmmm, needs more scrubbing.
