Hi-Fi Accident (photos)

Hi there,

I would like to share a story from yesterday. I've read some cat nutrition websites that were recommended here on this forum and decided to slowly switch from fry food to canned, and eventually to canned/home-made mix.

I'm on dry/canned stage right now. I've consulted some other forums in my country in order to get the idea which canned food brands are good quality.

I've purchased some recommended good quality cans and fed it to my cats. It was lamb/chicken mix with 70% meat content, so pretty decent.

Albert and Ursjusz refused to eat, but usually reluctant Arwena dug in. That was where the problem started...

After a while she started vomiting - apparently her stomach didn't accept the new food... It wouldn't be a problem since our cats vomit from time to time, but this time she chose to vomit on top of my Hi-Fi amplified...

I've spent the whole evening disassembling, cleaning and reassembling the device. With help of the cats of course. Below is a short photo report from the event

The culprit:


The victim:


The inspector:


The helpers:


The quality check:


Yes you!


That's the joys of keeping a cat But I don't mind.
Best Regards!

I read this with much trepidation. I feared photos of blood or fried fur or something. Imagine my relief that it was only vomit . Loved the photos and captions. Good thing you knew how to disassemble it. I wouldn't have had a clue!

Oh man, vomit in the electronics. You must be a very patient person.
Your cats are beautiful, especially Arwena. Orange boy looks kind of elderly?

When discussing getting the cats, my wife asked me what is the worst possible thing that they could do. Vomiting on my HiFi was definitely the worst... I said that I can live with that, and I wasn't even mad, when Arwena actually did that

Thanks, I agree

Ursjusz is actually the youngest. He is 14 months old, while Albert and Arwena are both exactly 2 years old. I think he looks older because he has a serious, slightly pensive face...

He is also slightly overweight, but we are working on this matter

Sorry to hear about this; I have a lot of home theater equipment in my living room - neither of my cats have puked on them yet, fortunately When not in use, you could consider placing some type of protective cloth or cover of some type on top of the hi-fi stack to prevent these types of accidents.

At least no one got hurt I've always imagined that the worse thing that could happen was an unsecured electronic equipment, such as a TV, falling on them for some reason.

Oh, what a mess! Did the amplifier survive? Electronics and wet things don't usually fare well together! Poor baby - yes it's hard to get angry when they do things that they can't control!.....unlike my Polly who jumped on the counter when I wasn't looking and knocked my expensive decorative Christmas candle onto the floor and smushed one side of it. Grrrrr.............

The problem is that the amplifier was in use when it happened The cats like to sit on top of it when it's working since it's getting pleasantly warm...

After two years of my cats sitting on top of the amplifier, the interior have accumulated a lot of hair inside... I wouldn't notice if not for "The accident"
