Wait, that's a stupid question.
Shore is!

My Siamese cat threw up his just eaten can of chopped liver in the floor heater---- a grill that only had on and off and was in the middle of the room---- While it was going full bore! Took months for that smell to dissipate!

I thought you meant where they want to hang out.

Yup, wherever they happen to be. Like sitting on the back of the couch while I was taking a nap on the couch. I pretty much woke up yelling at the cat. Most unpleasant.

I always hated putting my hand in cold cat puke when pushing back the covers and getting out of bed in the morning. Of course he would just find a dry spot.

I have a definite knee jerk reaction when I hear that noise in my sleep, both cats go flying, I don't care who the culprit is.

A favorite depository seems to be the fringe on the oriental carpets.

I keep the long haired one brushed. She loves being brushed actually. Even so, she works until she creates dread locks when giving herself a bath. Many hours of daily primping. She is very patient and allows me to work them out, with a little tugging and pulling. Otherwise, she works them out herself and then, ugh, she eats them. And we all know what happens then. The young'un doesn't care for much brushing, so I give her a quick once over as best as possible.
This seems to cut down on spewing hairballs.

And yes, I have learned to check the bed and pillows for any surprises before getting into bed. Uck.

My kitty is prowling around the lawn right now eating bits of grass here and there. He prefers the most tender blades of grass in which to create his yaks.

He's not going to be allowed inside for a while.

Yeah, I think it was the sound that woke me. I knew right away when I woke up. No confusion whatsoever.

People keep telling me that cats eat greens to help with their digestion. I don't think that's it. They eat them to make it easier to hork.
