Sounds like she may be ate something that upset her tummy - perhaps the little madam scavenged something in the garden or on her walk - glad to hear she is right as rain now. :-* :-*

you cant be too precious with furniture and stuff when you have pets - I swear by leather sofas and wooden floors for that very reason ??? ??? ???

I agree Ruth! We've got floorboards mostly and carpet in two bedrooms but bizarrely both Billy and Violet always went/go in those rooms when they needed to vomit or on the rugs!!
I think Madam Fee Fee probably had a tummy bug and I always stand by a no food for several hours if not 12 hours or more (if you can get away with it)  and then it's scrambled egg and a bit of bread or cooked potato which has always seemed to work.  Violet was sick this week which is unusual for her (in the carpeted bedroom, of course) she did this in the morning so I didnt't feed her until 9pm - which was painful because she was restless plus her tummy was rumbling  :-\ And of course throws on the sofas are a necessity!!! She didn't take long to work her way onto your bed  :) Little madam!!

We have resin downstairs and floorboards upstairs.

Leather sofas or throws is a must :D :D :D

Our last leather sofa was ripped by our Archie bullie....his feet went through it ..a small tear that eventually turned into a massive hole....LOL...we are fabric at the moment ..with of course the throws which I seem to be forever buying...lol...new ones for spare etc..but what ever soaf you have...you never see the real colour coz of the throws....LOL...I found the throws just slip off the leather....impossible to keep in one place.....then there are the grandkids...another reason for throws...love to live in a perfect house with no dirt...no spillages and no mess...my mates is like that...like a showroom....LOL..but you are frightened to breathe...LOL ;D

Billy had 'problem claws' and when he raked up the bedding for his comfort and pleasure:-\ it would make L shaped tears in it and the duvets too - I was forever having to sew up little tears - Violet has managed to do this once so far as I think her claws her more normal.  :-\

my last sofa had a huge hole in it made by Archie - from a little tear started by Lucy...

And my armchair had claw marks up the back where one of my previous cats used to sharpen their claw on it.

However the lot I have now don't seem to be so destructive, and Archie has got over his humping stage - so am risking a nice new leather corner sofa - ha ha

However I would hate to live in a show home without my dogs and cats - they more than make up for having a fluffy house ;) ;) ;) ;) although you will have to remind me I said that if they do destroy my new sofa :-[ :-[ :-[

Why is this? Violet always wants to sit in the position which is the best one to watch the TV?! :-\ She has a 'place' at the end but this doesn't seem to be enough for the little madam! Billy used to do this as well - they have very high expectations especially as they both came from welfare kennels where I know for sure there wasn't a sofa in sight!! I'm sure they do it for a wind up!!!  >:( >:(

The only reason I think they want to sit in your space the moment you leave it is to feel the warmth of where you've been sitting? either way it's irritating  :-\
