    sure they were - they might not have had glass panes in the very early days, though.

    Why is it that dogs have to throw up on rugs and not on the other 90% of the floor, which is not covered by rugs.

    Might be the same reason our cat naps on the newspaper rather than the tablecloth when on the kitchen table- they're trying to be nice and preserve your floors, which must be why you have them covered, right?

    The wooden floor is lacquered and you can just wipe the stomach acid up, 100% wool rugs no so much.

    I've had 3 cats and 2 dogs and all of them have done the same thing.

    yes, cats love to do this. ours will hack up a hairball along w/ a cup or so of stomach juice right at the edge of the rug, then pad off onto the floor...

    last night one of my kids did the same thing: "you feel OK, you look a little green around the gills?" "I'm fine". 30 seconds later hops up off the couch and empties his stomach onto the rug, not a foot away from the easy-to-clean floor. found out later he had won a milk-chugging contest (10 glasses) at lunch..:plain:..

    That is Murphy's law, corollary 3.

    Corollary 2 is the bread always lands peanut butter side down

    I understand that, I'm just trying to explain what the pet's line of thinking may be. The cat is very obvious- she knows that we would much rather have her on the newspaper than on the tablecloth (not having her on the table was a battle lost long ago), and she tries to be considerate of that. Except when she's pissed for some reason.
