Say What? Kitty Butt

Yesterday morning, I was fixing Princess Natalie’s hair like I always do when the cat came in and jumped up on the sink like she always does. I noticed a string that looked like Easter grass hanging off her back end. I did not think much of this whole situation.
Then I went to brush the string away. It didn’t go away. I grabbed the string with two fingers and tried to pluck it off.
This is when I realized that the string was not hanging off the cat’s butt, it was COMING OUT of the cat’s butt. She had eaten the string. Um-hmmm. It was like that. As I resigned myself to what was about to happen and gave a tug, the innocuous six-inch piece of easter grass became a poopy two-foot long piece of bad-dream-come-true that was making the cat very angry and mama very unhappy. That pretty much sums up my day.In case you need that image out of your head (I know I do,) here’s a little cute for the day.

If it makes you feel any better, or less alone in the pulling of things out of animals butts...one of our dogs routinely eats grass, she normally pukes it up, but occasionally I have to pull it out the other end. The otherone manages to swallow my hair...my 2 foot long hair. BLEGH, it's never fun pulling something out of someone's butt.

Okay, I was laughing so hard I was crying.

My cats get hair-dingleberries from time to time. The worst is when (and this usually happens to Tilly) there's a ball of poop hanging from the hair sticking out of her butt.

How did Natters react to this? Or did she use that big brain of hers and get out of there before things got "ugly"?

Natalie was too busy looking at herself in the mirror to notice the cat trying to claw my face off :)
