Selke is somehow capable of generating pretty much her own weight in puke after a meal. That is why I want to officially declare that Selke's superpower, if she were to apply for superhero status, would definitely be her Powervom.
Our third cat Pookie, who is a long-haired Norwegian Forest Cat, produces the occasional hairball for which one can hardly blame her. She is 75% fluff after all. Cody throws up once every six months or so, completely soundlessly. That's because he's awesome. And yes, he's my favorite cat ever (and my family is very tired of hearing that.)
Selke is not soundless, which is a good thing, because you need to be able to track her behind bookshelves, under tables, and through piles of electronics wiring when she is in Powervom Mode. She is not one to do the job all at once, even though sometimes the initial quantity makes you think so.
There is always more vom.
There is another great mystery about this situation, Blog: How Selke manages to subsist on the amount she eats minus the amount she hurls. Science would tell you she should be the size of a small gerbil by now, but this is not the case.
I guess that's just the supernatural wonder of the Powervom at work.
And lastly, there is a third great mystery: why we humans actually like our pets in spite of things like this. Believe me, we are rooting for Selke to decide to turn in her superhero cape and set aside the magic of the Powervom, but until then, we continue to feed her. Even though every time we do, it feels like a terrible mistake.
Fear not, readers, this video is not of the Powervom. It's a nice, festive holiday video of Selke in a battle to the death with her reindeer antlers.
You do not want to be exposed to the Powervom. Believe me.
