wooden_badger: I suppose there's a point of no return with that. Do we know of any crazy cat ladies that died of heart disease?
FunkOut: Try to get out of bed, cat makes you stay in bed, a fuzzy lump that shackles your feet to the mattress.
The Smails Kid: Smitty forgot licking and humping.
italie: I bought the cutest lab mix noisy, shedding, barfing, crapping, chewing machine. I figured he'd mellow after a year or two, and we'd both get fat and lazy together. 8 years later he still requires a triathlon worth of playtime each day. I can see where this holds water.//Lesson learned, labs are puppies until the day they die.
The All-Powerful Atheismo: The Smails Kid: Smitty forgot licking and humping.My dad has a dog who stays over with us sometimes. When I'm tickling my girlfriend, the dog gets... excited, and starts humping the nearest leg he can find.
The Pope of Manwich Village: I don't know. My dog insists on making me breakfast every morning. He even fries the eggs in the bacon grease. I think he trying to kill me.
Arachnophobe: You want a dog to get fat and lazy with? Newfoundlands. They're occasionally ambulatory carpets, and are perfectly happy with a couple walkies a day. They're a beast on food and grooming, though.
Wolfmanjames: italie://Lesson learned, labs are puppies until the day they die.Labs have hearts of gold, heads of stone and stomachs of iron.
Wolfmanjames: Arachnophobe: You want a dog to get fat and lazy with? Newfoundlands. They're occasionally ambulatory carpets, and are perfectly happy with a couple walkies a day. They're a beast on food and grooming, though.I kne a Newfie who once killed a burgular. The coroner could not tell if he was crushed to death or drowned in puppy-love-slobber.
MayoSlather: My noisy, shedding, barfing, crapping, and chewing machine just passed away...and the stress on my heart has admittedly escalated.
rogue49: Likely the same reason wine does the trick too.It's called, "RELAX"/stress, it's the killer...I can't stress this enough.
Dinjiin: In somewhat related news, neighbors of people with pets have an increased level of stress induced heart disease. Guess who gets to listen to them when they are let outside as their owners leave the house for an extended period?/is so very thankful that my current neighbors have well behaved pets//wasn't the case for my last four homes
shinypop: I have a bunny. He loves to cuddle. So much so that if I stop he bites me. Not sure if relaxing.
madanimalscientist: shinypop: I have a bunny. He loves to cuddle. So much so that if I stop he bites me. Not sure if relaxing.The_Green_Intern 's cats do much the same thing. If Yuki is on her back and I'm scratching her belly, and stop/move my hand, she will move my hand back to where she wants it, claws slightly out as a reminder that she's the boss in this household. Maxim just flops onto your lap, demands scratches/pettings, and if he is denied/you try to stop, will start biting/clawing.
