- feed cat well before bed time so he doesn’t wake you at 2:45am to go out to “do his business” (as nan used to say). 😴
- have an old towel next to the bed so when JoTheDoggin pukes you don’t have to catch it in your hand as you pick her up and run for the back door.
- stop secretly wishing you were the one who could sleep through all this happening.
Thankfully with Joey, I woke when I felt her stomach convulsing and then heard her heave… We made it almost to the laundry, before my hand had to save the carpet from her bright yellow bile-filled frothy puke. Better my hand than the carpet, one takes a lot less time to clean.
