1. The cat did excrement, so it was hard to keep the cat.
2. The cat vomitted droppings, so it was hard to keep the cat.

-----------------------------------
Are they correct expressions? Would you correct the errors if any?

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum again. Gramatically they may be ok BUT "did excrement" is most awkward. I'm afraid any cat is going to need a litter box!. The word "droppings" is a synonym for "excrement" and that is not vomitted.

    1. The cat did excrement, so it was hard to keep the cat.
    2. The cat vomitted droppings, so it was hard to keep the cat.

    -----------------------------------
    Thank you. Then which expressions should I use?

  • English grammar -

    For sentence 2, you could just omit the word "droppings" and the sentence would be awkward but OK.

    Better, smoother sentences would be these:

    1. The cat defecated in the house, so it was hard to keep him.

    2. The cat kept vomiting, so it was hard to keep him.

    =)

  • English grammar -

    Most often used it the term "litter box", which is the term for where cats, who are house trained, use the bathroom.

    So, I would say "The cat would not use the litter box, so it was hard to keep him. "
