Absolutely repulsive

So this is Crybaby. And as much as I love him, he can be the most disgusting, repulsive, nauseating, ghastly and any other synonym you can come up with cat.

We're assuming that when he was fixed they didn't quite clean him out completely. Every now and then he squirts out the most sickening fluids. Its not urine, it's thicker and sort of milky and clear at the same time and the smell lasts forever. He usually does it when he's completely engrossed with something and someone or something freaks him out. Or when he gets really excited from too much loving. If it gets on clothes or a blanket or any other cloth it has to be washed before you can use the item again. If you don't you'll be smelling that odor for a long time to come. If it gets on your skin you have to wash and rinse a few times before it'll come out.

This happened to me tonight although nothing was done to make him do it. At least not anything that makes sense. He was snuggled with me on the couch when he got a whiff of blueberry. I had a blueberry muffin as my dessert and the crumbs were wrapped in a paper towel sitting on a tv tray. He stands up sniffing at it trying to get to the crumbs. I reach over and grab the towel and that's that. He didn't even flinch, just kept on sniffing.

Next thing I know I feel this wetness on my blanket and then the odor hits me. I have it on both my hands before I know what's happening. The odor is getting stronger and stronger. I go to the bathroom to wash my hands off and and glance at myself in the mirror and on my headband are three more drops. The rat bastard got it on my head. It's now in my hair. I had to take a shower and wash my hair for it to come out. I never take showers at night, I only take baths. And I certainly never wash my hair at night. It takes too long to dry. It's a good thing I wasn't going to bed right away though. Gotta watch Grey's Anatomy ya know.

After the shower I come back downstairs to watch Grey's and the smell odor is permeating the whole damn room and he's laying on the couch as if nothing ever happened. I swear that cat needs a whole new neutering.

Usually I have some sort of quote in my mind from something that I know, be it a song, movie, tv show, what have you that I want to use for my media quotes. But sometimes I have no clue where to even begin. So that's usually when I go to and stick a word or phrase in and choose quotes and search. This was completely too cool. It was the first quote that came up and it incorporates two of the things I mentioned. And, I remember this episode, so I of course had to use it.

Media quote of the day: Look, I fantasized about you. About the woman in this photo, whoever she is. I'm not proud of it, but it's a fact. Do you know what they're gonna do to me today? I have cancer. And they're gonna lift up my legs and expose me to the world, and cut out my prostate, and my nerves. Effectively neuter me. So is it so hard to understand that I don't want the woman who is in that photo to witness... my emasculation? - Mr Humphrey in Grey's Anatomy (from 2005)

You should take him to another vet and see what's going on. That doesn't sound normal.

Well, considering he's healthy in all other ways we've just never bothered to take him in. Also, it doesn't happen that often. It's just really gross when it does. I figured if and when we need to take him in for something else I'll ask about it. Or if I remember when taking in one of the others I'll ask.

Wow that is nasty. It makes for good blogging though.

That it is and that it does.
