A Proper Father

I am now a proper father. Mayuki threw up all over me today.

I had a bit of a lie in this morning, and after I got up and we had breakfast, I gave Mayuki a bottle of milk while we sat on the sofa. She drank it all down at once, and then got down, standing between my legs. She looked a bit uncomfortable, so I asked her whether anything was wrong.

At that point she was sick on me.

After being sick, she started crying, so I called Yuriko. Mayuki had managed to avoid getting any vomit on herself, landing it all on me, so I didn’t want to give her a hug while Yuriko was going to arrive any moment. Fortunately, Mayuki stopped crying soon after Yuriko arrived, and we were able to mop up enough of the liquid vomit that I could get up and go to the bathroom to undress into a bucket.

I’d been wondering, after I finished feeding Mayuki, whether to have a shower. Obviously, that decision was made for me.

In the end, Mayuki seemed to be back to her normal self by the time we’d finished, so I gave her a shower as well, and then we went out for a little walk to the shops. Mayuki actually walked quite a bit of the way, although I had to carry her quite a lot as well. Lots of people said she was cute, and she was just as she always is, so we don’t think there’s anything wrong with her; she probably just drank too much too quickly.

    I am inclined to agree with your diagnosis; cats do that too 🙂

    What took her so long?
    Be grateful, John mastered projectile vomiting early on.
