beware of flying objects . . .

nels sez:

well, this morning She hadda go change her pants. She peed 'em. before breakfast. and it was all xingxing's fault.

xing likes to sit on the table that the puter face sits on while She types. all of a sudden, xing started that well-known rhythmic urping that signals an imminent hairball (and she, being very fastidious, hurls some whoppers!). She didn't wanna annoy xing just then by moving her, so She just moved papers outta the way and told her to go for it; which she did.

but the hairball didn't come all the way out! xing panicked and did a scrambling, floundering about-face turn to jump up on the puter body where it sits next to the face. while she did this, her head went through the 180-arc with her mouth pointing upward, spraying hurl-juice ceilingward with great success.

then her head followed through with a snap, disengaging a world-class hairwad, which smacked into the wall--four feet away!! it slid slowly down the wall like those icky garden slugs, and plunked onto the carpet. us boys watched in awe. we've projectile-yakked a few times, but NEVER anything like that. xing has a new weapon, and we respect her for that. we're staying outta the way when she hurls.

oh, yeah; it took Her almost three minutes to get Herself together enough to go clean up the mess, wipe Her eyes, and use Her asthma inhaler. and then, of course, to change Her britches.

Oh, ew.

I don't get hairballs. Or at least not since that one as long as my paw I got when I used to groom my ex-girlfriends Mischief and Mayhem. They had really long fur.

That's really impressive! But ew.

Thank you for your vote and compliments Nitro. I thought your costume was the mostest imaginative of all.

Ahahahahahahaha that is great, projectile hairballing smack on the wall, heehee, all over, ahahaha wow *sigh* that was a great story to share-we loved it, so did Mom ~Merlin, SHadow, KO KO

DEBRA said...

Wow...I is IMPRESSED....I has nefur had a hairball. Momma has only had one time wif Jinx when he went around da house froin' up. Jinx did it a'bout a squillion times, so he got to go on a lil' trip to da vet. Momma doesn't fool around. She just scooped him up b'tween froin' ups and took him to da Vet. He stopped froin' up and he wuz OK. No hairball came up doh.

At least it wasn't me goin to da vet.

*ABBY

Skeeeeezix the Cat said...

Do yoo think she needs an exorsizm? Mao and Rocky do thoze on the side, if yer intrested.

nels, ed, nitro, and/or xing said...

she needs somethin'! she's the most evil-tempered kitty we's efur seen. she don't wanna play, she don't wanna share, we can't even peek at her from the corner of our eyes wifout her yellin', "Mommy, he's LOOKIN' at me!" jeez. what a pill.

but she loves beans; even beans she nefur met before. furry strange; but then, we've already decided she's not a cat.

Haha! That's so funny! Sheesh!

Babeth said...

The Brothers of the House of Chaos bow with respect.
Bean Sidhe on the other hand remarked: "What's a hairball ?"
I just couldn't find the courage to explain it to him...

We found this link at Karen Jo's while reading her limerick about Xing Lu. We think Xing Lu deserves an award for hugest hurling hairball arc. We don't think we could top that.
