Two Firsts occurred on the same day – the first time one of the cats broke something and the first time one of them was sick on the floor. It was, of course, Fearless the graceless wonder who broke something – she knocked over my ceramic tape dispenser that was shaped like a snail – and Simon had the dubious honor of yakking. And it was, also of course, on the rug and not the easily cleanable tiles.

Now I need a new one of these.
