Do you mean rat terriers, or pet rodents?

Rat terriers. Sorry I wasn't clear!

My husband, the darling, made homemade cheese sauce Wednesday night and mixed it with egg noodles for us and over rice for him. I looked today and in the kitchen is a large pot, covered with a baking sheet. I pull of the baking sheet and there is a stench not unlike that of vomit. I cleaned it. He can't believe that happened in just over a day. Believe it!

DH has done something similar, only his concoction contained tomato, garlic and a few other bits and bobs, mixed with pasta and topped with cheese. I threw up when it came to me washing up the following day.
 
New rule now...you make it, you wash up!!! :-X
Knowledge is knowing tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

We have two feeding stations for the cats. One on the third floor and one on the second.

Mocha, the Abyssinian kitten, loves to drown inanimate objects in the water dishes. It makes a huge mess. I couldn't identify what was in the 3rd floor water dish and made DH clean it out. It was buffalo hair.

Nothing is like the stench of rice pilaf that has sat undisturbed in a closed rice cooker for 2 weeks.  I just threw it away as neither of us could deal with the smell.

I believe so. I had to throw out a small, cheap slow cooker because something had boiled over into the housing and would not come out. Every time the element heated up, it smelled like death.

The Sweetie and I tried natto recently (highly fermented soy beans). The texture is fine, but the fragrance and flavor - well, our best description was "a combination of coffee ice cream and death."

I pointed out that as long as anyone eats blue cheese, we have no grounds for making fun of natto.

Yes, we threw the whole rice cooker away. It was one of our small ones and on its last legs. I figured we only had a couple more uses after that anyway as the heating element was taking longer and longer, so I just chucked it in the trash.

I threw out my old slow cooker because I made something cheesy in it and realized that proper cleaning was virtually impossible.  I replaced it with a larger one that has a removable stoneware insert - I can take it out and actually wash it!  If I don't have time to wash it properly I'll usually just cover it and throw it in the fridge so it doesn't get science project-y.

Slow cooker liners are great, too.  Makes cleanup so much easier.

I will only have slow cookers with removable stoneware inserts. I won't use the liners as I don't like plastic near cooking food.

This isn't super gross, but it was a bit of a first for me.  I was at the store today, and I noticed that the handle of the basket I was carrying was starting to bend a little bit.  I put a 4-pack of energy drinks in the basket just before I noticed that, so I thought I'd take it out again to lighten the load a little.  The cardboard edge of the box scraped against my finger, and it hurt for a second, then I didn't feel it anymore and I forgot about it.

When I got in the car, I saw that my finger and thumb were covered in blood smears, and I remembered that the cashier was giving me a funny look.  I started driving, and when I checked the rear-view mirror I saw that there was a dark blood smear on my left cheek.  When the heck did I touch my face, and why didn't the cashier tell me I was bleeding?  ::)

Maybe she thought I knew but thought I didn't care.  So yeah, she probably thought I was kinda gross, and in retrospect it was pretty embarrassing.

Same here.  Not to mention those liners add a GROSS taste and smell to the food.  How no one seems to notice it is a mystery to me.

Plastic, when heated, releases bits into what is around it. Including food. I won't reheat anything in a plastic bag.
