Seriously,

These 2 damn cats have been throwing up twice a day for the last few days. Food, litter, etc... everything is the same.

She knows I hate the bastards but I do go out of my way to act like I care. They could dance a new jig and call me daddy and I still want to do away with them.

Do these creatures get diseases? What could cause this?

Other than throwing up they act extremely normal and annoying.

I know this is GD and I expect to get ass raped but if I get 1 honest response the gf will think i'm awesome.

I don't know, but you could always just cook them. I hear Lemon Kitty is good.

Anything coming out of the other end?

If both of my cats where doing that at the same time, they both would take a trip to the vet ASAP.

Are you sure? Check their bungholes frequently. If you see a white slimy little string, then they have tapeworms. If the tapeworms grow large enough, they can barf them up. The worms will fall out of their asses and turn hard, resembling a piece of rice.

They are easily rid of by pill (from the vet) or by flea medicine which is placed on the back of their neck. Eventually, they lick enough of this medicine that it gets into their system and kills the tapeworms. It's a common problem and if they ingest just one flea with tapeworms, then they get them too.

My cat gets them because she can't seem to stop eating mice. The medication is effective and works very fast. We're talking a day or two and no more worms.

P.S. Don't fuck around with over-the-counter crap. Go to the vet and get the good stuff.

Rule # 1: All cats are sick. Usually it's a mental disease such as malignant narcissism or meglomania. Remember, you are not an "owner," you are staff...

You can starve a cat to empty in 24 hours. I had a barfy cat and I just gave him that as a reboot on his system every so often. Usually worked for a few months.

Edit- I understand now...

I hate cats with a passion and never dealt with them before. Except barn cats

Edit- and not the "semi nice" barn cats

my little monster barfs hairballs, but it's not more than once every month or so
