Cat Lady Advice: Regurgitation and Treble Clef Cats

Do you have a question for 2catladies?  Write to us at

Dear 2catladies,

My cat has been throwing up more frequently. She may have been eating flowers, but other than that, her diet is the same. Is she okay or should I go to the vet?

L: Have you noticed a change in her grooming habits recently?  If she is grooming excessively, that could trigger more throwing up issues.  Also, can you tell when she is throwing up? If it looks like she’s throwing up recognizable cat food, it might not be as big of an issue as it would be if she is throwing up something completely unrecognizable.  If the vomiting continues to get worse or if your cat seems unusually lethargic, you might want to take a trip to the vet.
R: Looking at cat barf is gross.  However, it tends to hold the answer.  Sometimes cats throw up because they ate too fast.  Sometimes they throw up because they ate too much.  Sometimes they throw up because they ate something that they shouldn’t.  Sometimes they throw up because you haven’t been petting them enough and they want to punish you by vomiting on your freshly laundered blankets.
Here is a link to plants that are toxic to our feline friends.
When in doubt, call a vet.  They’re good people.
Note: This problem has been resolved.  The cat had indeed gotten into flowers, and stopped throwing up when the flowers were unavailable to her.

Hello lovely cat ladies,

A coworker stumbled upon this today and immediately brought it to my attention. It’s a book that teaches children to read music with the assistance of hand drawn cats and a few other warm and fuzzy things. This is the cover of the book and a page that shows the comparison of a cat and a treble clef. Enjoy!

L: Wow.  This is an amazing find and combines 2 of the 2catladies favorite things: music and cats.  What an excellent way to teach cats about music.  George agrees.

R:  Colonel and Kilgore have loved music ever since they were teeny tiny fuzzballs.  Thanks for sharing!

Kilgore ponders the repercussions of slamming the guitar case closed on his brother.

Peace, Love, and Cats,

L & R

    It has recently come to my attention that Rossini wrote a duet for two “cats”-two people singing “meow.” See
