Spitting At Cats

Last night I was getting ready for bed. I was in the midst of flossing my teeth when my little Tonkinese cat jumped up on the bathroom vanity. He has always liked to drink water from my bathroom faucet since we moved into this house almost six years ago.

He jumped up on the wrong side of the sink though, so he was trying to cross over between me and the sink to get to the other side. Unfortunately for him, I was just then spitting out a wad of saliva which landed right on his little head, down the side of his face, into his eye and ear. His head is really very tiny! My spit took up about half of it!

Now if he was a germaphobe like me, he would have flipped out having someone spit on half his head and face! Well, he actually was not happy. He looked at me like "HEY! Why am I all wet?! What did you do to me?!"

I tried wiping the spit off with my hand, but there was a lot of it! Then I took a kleenex and held him still while I wiped his head down. He went off shaking his head a bit and trying to wipe himself with his paw.

He's a very cuddly cat who enjoys kisses. I suggest that if any of you come over in the next day or two, that you don't kiss his head or face. Unless you want to virtually slurp the residue of yours truly's spit! haha

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, all my American friends!


  1. Oh my gosh...I have heard of people getting in the way of someone spitting out flem (triple ewwww!), but toothpaste on a kitty's head? LOL

    Poor kitty!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

  2. LOL! Well, I hadn't gotten to the toothpaste yet. It was the flossed bits of debris from between my teeth mixed in with accumulated saliva! Eww, that's even grosser than toothpaste spat out! LOL!

  3. He's adorable, Laura. Absolutely adorable. Well, except for the toothpaste on his head part ...

  4. LOL - thanks, Feisty Cat! And I appreciate you stopping by to take a look! :-)

  5. Ewww, ewwww, ewww! I woulda wash that cat's head with water no matter how much he hated it. Yuck! The thought of him walking around with all that germ on his poor little head... :(

    Go ahead Germ Freak, tell me I'm wrong! :)

  6. hahaha - no, you're right, but I couldn't bring myself to actually wash him off. He'd already suffered enough with my spit all over his face & head. The worst punishment for him is water since I chase him around with a squirt bottle every day for tormenting my Bengal cat! *sigh*

  7. LOL. Picturing Laura chasing after the cat with a squirt bottle for tormenting her Bengal cat! Too funny.

  8. I think you need a cat, Marg! I've got a beautiful old Bengal who would love to have a peaceful, quiet home where she can live unmolested. Shall I pack her up for you???
