Alrighty, lol, I don't even know where to begin on this! Suffice it to say, I have a spoiled little cat who is used to getting what she wants WHEN she wants it. I work from home most days so I'm here almost all the time, and she spends a good portion of the day on my lap. She's not by any means a neglected kitty. But this is her newest trick... The other day my cat wanted to jump on my lap while I was working on the computer, but I needed to type and having a 12 pound cat begging for attention on my lap makes that a little hard (reading I can do with her on my lap, but typing, no!). So my cat meowed a few times to express her displeasure, then she went to the corner of the room and started making her throwing up noise. Any cat owner knows that noise, the disgusting gagging sound. Well, I turned around and said: "Oh no, is kitty sick? Is kitty ok?" She stopped immediately, ran over, and hopped on my lap. Yes, that's right folks, my cat has learned to fake vomit for attention. And now she's doing it frequently! If she meows once to get my attention while I'm at the computer and I don't respond, suddenly I hear gagging!! It can't be healthy, and it's more than a little embarrassing to think that my cat feels the need to vomit for attention, but like I said, she gets pets and cuddles all day long! Lol, is there something I should do?? I have no idea how to break her of this and spare my carpet (I live in a rental). FYI, this isn't the first time she's tried to use vomit to manipulate the situation to her advantage. She used to vomit on my boyfriend's stuff to express her displeasure with boyfriend. AND when he started spending the night she started throwing up on the nightstand next to his face at night. She is a ROTTEN cat, she is lucky I dearly love her!
