Hey guys. The other day, I did the unthinkable. I yakked on this scratcher.

Cat on scratcher

Down on the other end…you can’t see it in this picture. Besides, I don’t think you’d wanna see it. It was most of my breakfast…it was pretty gross. The mom tried to clean it off…but she says you just can’t clean cardboard. So now it’s getting tossed in the trash. Rats.

She promised to get us a new one…but who knows when that will be.

This is the last selfie that I will ever take on this scratcher. Y’know…that makes me a little sad. This scratcher has served me well…and I’m gonna miss it.

  1. Oh dear, we’re so sorry to hear you upped your breakfast on the scratcher! Hopefully you won’t have to wait too long for a new one. I do that now and then on the carpet, but it’s usually just hair, and only a tiny bit.

  2. Oh yea, we hate it when that happens, but we enjoyed your selfie Ernie!

  3. That is a great selfie on your faithful scratcher. You will have to be more careful with your aim when you get the new one.

  4. You can’t clean cardboard, but you can cut it. Is it possible to trim off the yucky parts? Maybe it didn’t go too deep?

    • Nah, it’s not easy to cut off the part that was yakked on. And this isn’t the first time it’s been yakked on…so it really is a good time for a new one. Besides, I kinda like the idea of getting my claws into some fresh cardboard. 🙂

  5. Rats! Sometimes you just can’t help it, we know.

  6. Oh no! Thank goodness it was only the scratch er that was made of cardboard and not your home! MOL

  7. Oh no, we understand better why you look a little sad on your selfie ! Purrs

  8. Oh well Ernie, you probably couldn’t help it. When you have to yak, you have to yak. Beside a new scratcher will be great fun. Have a great day.

  9. you deserve a new scratcher anyway just for being a wonderful cat Ernie.

  10. I feel your pain Ernie. I have horked all over my brand new scratcher that I just GOT! Mom had to pitch it out.

  11. That is a tragic story Ernie, my condolences. I’m sure your Mom will get you a new one soon.

  12. I am sorry about your scratcher. My cats have done that and I manged to use a knife to get the ick out.

  13. Hi Ernie and happy Selfie…will you 3 have your own moving van come in to take care of all your stuff
    during the relocation caper?
    Hugs Cecilia

  14. What a bummer! It looks like it was well-loved, though – you could probably do with another one.

  15. But you’ll get a brand new one, Ernie! Just be sure you get to it first!

  16. It will just take a little time to break in a new one, Ernie, and then you’ll be happy again!

  17. Mom says Kozmo yaks on the cardboard scratcher when HE thinks Mom should get him a new one. He won’t go near his after he yaks in it no matter how good Mom “thinks” she has gotten rid of the yak.
    Purrsonally, I prefer to yak in shoes.

  18. Awww hope your feeling better and poor scratcher hopefully it won’t be long till you get a new one. Your so gorgeous and definitely deserve a new one.

  19. Bummer, Ernie! I think you just missed. After all, Cat 101 dictates to always yak on the carpet.

  20. Oh no! I’m sorry your scratcher is going to be tossed out! But it’s a great opportunity to get a new one…especially Christmas is coming in no time 🙂

  21. Ernie Ernie Ernie do not dee-spare! Kissmas iss comin soon…an mee has herd that this iss a time of gitss beein givin…mee will ask BuudhaCAtGod to leeve you a scratcher under yore tree or coffeetabell….

    P Ess: Yore selfie iss gorgeous!

  22. We love those scratchers. They ‘ cheap but they last forever (unless cat vomit intervenes….)

  23. Ernie, well at least it was near the holidays so you can put a new scratcher on your xmas wish list. I’m sure Sandy Paws will bring you one and it will smell fresh as a daisy… err… as catnip. And I’m sure you and a new scratchy will be the best of furr-iends. Tummy tickles.

  24. Aw, darn. That’s a real shame, Ernie, because those infinity scratchers are the best (we love ours)! We hope your new one comes soon!

  25. I’m so sorry, Ernie 🙁 But I bet you’ll get an even bigger and better one!

  26. wait till you get the new one Ernie,just thing of all the fun you will get on it,xx Speedy

  27. Well Ernie, when the new scratcher gets there – you can break it in with a nice yak to make it feel welcome!

    Hugs, Teddy

  28. well that’s too bad. next time you’ll have to do some projectile yakking.

  29. Awww, Ernie, that’s so sad. Lexy knows how you feel because she does that, too.

  30. I’ve done that on my scratcher (just like the one you have). Mom has “salvaged” mine by letting it dry, then vacuuming the yuck off, then taking a sharp knife and carving out the ruined part. So, my scratcher has a big divot in it, but it still works.

    • Oh, I just read your reply that carving out the yuck won’t work. Too bad. But your scratcher has served you well. You know, those scratchers come in big boxes, so it’s a two-for-one deal in the cat amusement department.

  31. You can’t always control when or where you yak up food! Hopefully Santa Paws will bring one for you this year!

  32. Accidents happen. I bet you will soon get a new one. If not just use a chair leg!

  33. sorry to hear your yack attack ruined a beloved scratcher! Maybe the next one will be even better! Think how much fun you will have working it in!

  34. Ernie, we know you will be sad about this scratcher going, but just think about the new one you will be getting. Maybe it will be better and you will fall in love with it right away. Your face is a little sad now but it will be alright. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful holiday week.

  35. Ernie, what’s a little bit of yak between friends?

  36. That’s one way to get a new scratcher.

  37. That scratcher looks so great! You can get the new one very soon 😉

  38. A little barf never hurt anyone! Besides, now you have an excuse to be like Bear and go for the couch 😉 ~Ellie Mae

  39. Sorry about your scratcher, Ernie! We hope you get a new one soon to break in.

  40. Nicely timed, Ernie. Now you get a new one for Christmas!

  41. Hoping Santa will bring you a new one, Ernie!

  42. We’re purring and hoping that Santa Paws will bring you a brand new, squeaky clean scratcher, Ernie!

  43. Oh Ernie, me did the same thing. And like you, mommy said she’d get us another one. We just don’t know when. Big hugs

    Luv ya’
