List: Nicknames for Vomit-Prone Cats

Next week, I'm getting a bamboo floor installed in my new house. So I thought I'd better study up on how to clean puke off it, because even my digestively angelic cats have been known to spew a load of stomach acid now and then. In my search, I ran across this wonderful site—an Ask MetaFilter forum where people write in with their cat-vomit anecdotes. The best part, aside from their idioms for barf ("gack," "petrified sickup"), was their nicknames for their own puke-prone cats. Here are my faves:

Madame Barfary
Miss Yaksalot
Lady Spewtastic
Yacky the Wondercat
Van Upchuck
So Long, and Thanks for All the Barf
Ms. Scatterbits
Baron von Barfsalot
Lord Launch Lunch
The Duke of Hurl
