These cats are trying to kill me

I have three cats (in chronological order):  Tippy (8), Dina (7), and Calypso (7 months).  Tippy is a fluffy mother fucker while Dina and Calypso are short hair kitties.  Although, Dina grooms Tippy more than Tippy grooms Tippy.  You can probably imagine that my house is a hair ball factory and it’s killing me because I have carpet.

Of course, the only place they want to ever puke is on the carpet (Why not the tile, huh?  Like the time Dina was ON the tile, started yacking, and literally launched herself onto the carpet to barf.  Thanks, Dina, you’re the best.).  Not just any carpet though, it has to be the living room, right in the middle.  Those little bastards.

I’m saving my pennies to buy that self-locking laminate wood flooring.  If we do it ourselves, it’ll cost $983 for everything (the flooring, tools, underlayment, circular saw, spacers, everything).  Well, we have to do it ourselves because when we paid Lowe’s to come out here for their estimate, they said $5,200 for my four-hundred square foot living room (jaw on floor goes here).  Yeah.  That estimate was for LAMINATE flooring, we’re not talking about fancy-schmancy wood here, it just looks like wood.

I’m going to put up a little goal calculator so everyone can see the progress of my no-more-scrubbing-carpet-fund.  Right now I have…  $76.  WOOT!  Almost there, but not really.

  1. Y’know there was a time when I would really sympathize about barf on the carpet. All but one room of my home is floored with linoleum due to my allergies yet somehow the dogs always managed to puke in the ONLY room that has carpet. Even though the door to that room is usually closed.

    Then I got Diego, a chihuahua.

    Like most chihuahuas he is a lap dog. He loves to be snuggled up on me especially when he’s … well, breathing. Can you see where this is going?

    The first time Diego gets an upset tummy (that we know of) he comes running to mommy – me – and proceeds to barf all over me.

    Now I think the carpet is a mighty fine place to puke after having this happen on more than one occasion.
