Well I thought I would share this with you even if to give you a laugh.

My day started well when Molly decided to throw up an enormous hairball on the bedroom carpet as I was rushing to get ready for work. So the day started really well:)!

I took Missy to work with me today as normal but I had to go to a branch surgery for an hour first so she curled up on the back seat under her blanket. Anyway on the way back from the branch she decided to throw up on the back seat, luckily I have a washable seat cover on :sad:.

When I got back to the main branch it was really busy with inpatients so I decided to leave her in the car as there were no kennels inside and she was comfortable so l left her snuggled up in her blanket on the back seat. I kept going out periodically to check her and I checked her again around mid day just before my interviewee arrived.

Unfortunately I was a little late leaving and it got to 2.30 by the time I go back to my car. Well it was PLASTERED and no it wasn't more vomit:eek:!!! The smell was just yummy (NOT). Well my handbag, coat and gloves got abandoned on the car park by my car and I rushed Missy inside as by this time some of the day patients had gone home. Now Missy has lovely feathers on her tail, not so lovely when it is excited in diarrhoea and she is wagging because she is happy to see me!!!:rotfl:

When I had deposited her and got back to my car to check out the damage, I tell you I was glad to have a washable seat cover but that didn't protect the other seats from her paint brush of a tail. I took out the cover and the mat from the foot well and hosed them off and left it out to dry and wiped down the back of the driver's and passenger seat. I got the vet to check her over (plus point of working in a vets) and now she is on antibiotics and diarrhoea medicine! We are covering her from Campylorbacter (2 weeks of oxytetracyline) as she was kennelled next to a dog who recently tested positive for it so that is a worry. (had it myself once over not very pleasant).:eek::eek::eek:

So that was the extent of my day. It looks like I am sleeping on the sun lounger bed in the lounge tonight just incase she gets caught short so tomorrow will be zombie day for me lol:blink:!

Up t your neck in muck and bullets. What a hard job clearing that lot up.
Hope the smell has gone and Missy is better.

Thanks everyone, My car still smells pretty bad I think it may need valleting! Missy is on the mend, is eating little and often and not passed any more goo, but I am worried about taking her out for a walk just in case she makes a mess that I can't pick up in a poo bag.:wink2: um!

The joy's of pet owning. I will admit I would rather clean up after animals than humans!

Haha, I quite agree on the animals/humans thing but funnily enough when they're your own humans, as in own children, it's alright.

Mind, now, when my eldest son (11) stuffs himself silly and throws up around midnight (he's quite good at this), he is now told to clean it up himself. I know, I know, I am a cruel, inconsiderate, unloving parent!!

I don't think you are cruel at all, he's gonna have to start doing that at some stage in his life namely when he goes off to college / Uni so may as well get the practice in now:lol:.

Um maybe it will teach him to either stop gorging or get to the loo a bit quicker (bless)!! The worst is on carnival nights when on duty (first aid) and you pick the drunken teenager who pukes all over the back of the ambulance, there is nothing worse than that smell, but that doesn't start again until September:rolleyes:!
