I know what you mean, that's a bone of contention with SO who complains Fluffy prefers yours truly. Could be because I'm softer for "making biscuits" upon. Naw, couldn't be, it is the other biscuit factor, I feed her.

I was a bit over the edge. It was on my mind because I just caught a nasty cold from my grandnephew who stuck his snot covered fingers into my mouth before I could stop him.

If you have to catch a cold, sounds like a great memorable way to get it, you'll laugh about this, a week or so from now. I have no idea how I got mine. Stay home from work, oh never mind. Take care, get well.

How wonderful. One time I enjoyed a great puking and a defecation and certain a urination. By my godson who giggled and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. It was glorious Good thing we have showers.


I dont think I caught anything

I don't think I was ever so sick in my life as when my son was a tot. Whatever he got, I got worse. He sneezed and coughed in my face and of course there was the diaper changing when he had copious amounts of diarrhea. He tells me he never wants children...too much work and sacrifice I guess. I never get sick from "Lucky" my adorable pug who snuggles up to me every chance he gets. And he is always most appreciate of the least little thing I do for him.

Yeah, unfortunately. Coyotes got both the cats. Told the neighbor to keep his cat inside, but he didn't. Got him too. I stayed outside a few nights after with the rifle but was unble to see any coyotes to extract vengence.

Yeah, you are right, children are far more disgusting in their habits and hygiene. Thank god my dogs and cats aren't so gross. Ewww.

And don't get me started on those other cultures where ignorance and cruelty are considered ordinary human traits.

Chaps mah hide that I can charge a separate pet deposit but someone can bring in a rug rat that's going to do the same or worse damage to the carpets and i have to pretend that they are just like any other tenant. never had a dog draw on the walls with crayon either.

Min Pin = in the bed if she's wailing. I have a soft spot for 5 big pounds of attitude.

Doberman = on the couch or in his crate, no matter what.

Our 5 cats are indoor cats only. They sleep on our bed during the day, but I kick them out at night. I tried letting them sleep with us once, but I was awake half the night and said never again.

A true pet sleeps indoors and lives indoors because it is a family member. Of course, most pets enjoy plenty of outdoor time just like people. But unless you consider any animal you own a pet worthy of being treated like a person, don't have them!!
