Feline Fetishes, Canine Crack


This topic came up down below under another, and I thought it deserved a heading of its own!

You've mentioned all the things your pets go nuts over and love to love--to the extreme! Butt spankings, socks, etc. So let's discuss these things further.

Above is Sis Daisy Lou's dog Bennie, my Mom's pride and joy. He likes Daisy's bras. Probably because of all the padding he can rest his little chin on. Mom should wrap one of those on her porch chair for Bennie's comfort instead of a towel, as the bra would be much more pillow-like. Ha!

Catfish LOVES to lick hair. I think he's a frustrated hairdresser. He also licks and grooms Tarzan. Tarzan demands this, going up to Catfish and butting his head into him until Catfish licks his head and ears.

Zoe and Scooter LOVE to eat used tissues out of the garbage can. They love allergy season because it keeps their stash cupboards full. Zoe also loves to lick people...and lick and lick and lick. She'd be a two--pack-a-day smoker if she were human!

Peanut has his ball fetish. He carries one around almost constantly. When I come home at night after work and let them out to do their business, he has to take a ball out with him. If he can't find the one he wants at a particular time, he runs around the house looking. I can't give him just ANY ball when he's in this mood--he must have the one he wants and I have to find it or I won't get a minutes peace.

How like humans our pets can be when it comes to addictions and must-haves. What are your pets' cravings--things they must have--the good, the bad, the ugly?

Oh my gosh Sandy,

I can't wait to read Daisy Lou's response to a picture of her bra on the blog. We might HEAR her response(the scream?!) before we read it. That is so funny...you are a brave person Sandy...either brave or you really like to push your sis's buttons! Daisy Lou...I'm sure you have some goodies on Sandy that we haven't heard yet??

My daughteres dog Petie has a panty fetish. He likes to drag clean panties out of the laundry basket and tote them around, slobber on them and put them in his bed. He is a naughty boy.

My Harley likes the dirty tissues too. Yuck...kind of disgusting. She likes anything in the bathroom trashcan. We have learned that we can't leave the trashcan on the floor or she will dump it out and go thru it to find treats. Treats can be anything from a discarded tissue to a discarded razor. yep...that one made me remember to put the trash can up.

Oh Sandy girl what are you thinkin'? That is two for you on Dasiylouu, she is so gonna get you back! Good thing she doesn't live in Clarksville or we might have to break up a fight.

Shannon, Petie just sounds like a normal man to me with his panty fetish.

Brittany the one who brings us washcloths and socks and gets into the trash to get plastic to eat also digs the trash for Q-Tips. Why she likes them who knows but she does. I can't leave one lying on the bathroom counter even for a second or she will take off with it. It seems wierd all our animal desires but guess they're no different than us crazy people when you think about it.
One thing about it is all of our animals are blessed to have all of us who love them and put up with thier quirky actions, desires and behaviors. Think how some poor little animals don't have all the spoiling, patience, and love all of ours get. Of course they give us back so very much so it goes both ways and we are so blessed to have them!!!!!!!!!

Sandy!!!! What exactly are you trying to say about the padding in Daisylouu's bras?? Are you saying that she needs padded bras? I think I can be a better judge of that than you are. Even better still, a side by side comparison between you and Daisylouu may be in order. That might tell us which sister really needs the padded bra.

Pam, I'm a smart enough Dragon not to get in the middle of a "cat fight". But, I would love to watch. It's kind of exciting to watch two women go at it.

She will probably kill me, but it's not like she's WEARING the bra. And our whole family is a family of "button-pushers."

Panty fetish? My my. I guess it's not so bad because he likes clean ones! I forgot to mention Scooter likes to dig certain items out of the laundry pile: wash cloths and dish cloths. He doesn't chew them, just rubs himself on them.

And Dragon, how do you know I even wear a bra? But I think Daisy will admit as to which sister is better endowed! She's skinnier thought, so she has no complaint!

Aimee, dog princess, likes to drag and sleep on any article of clothing of mine she can find from shirts to panties to shoes. She usually only does this when we have to go out and they are left home alone. They usually end up on the living room couch where she apparently waits for us to come home. Max and Charlie have special favorite balls they carry about. Max has a small vinyl soccer ball and Charlie has a red tennis ball. Scooter like twisty ties and milk cap rings. He carries them in his mouth and pushes them about on the floor. I think they usually end up under the refrigerator. Larry and Trouble think playthings are immature and refuse to be enticed into playing with anything at all. Charlie's favorite time to play ball is when hubby is on the floor working on a project with 10,000 partts scattered around him. Charlie will place the ball in the middle of them and wait for hubby to throw the ball and then he will bring it back to hubby, who by that time has lost part 999 and throws the ball as far as he can to distract Charlie. Charlie is too smart though and is back in a flash.

Bras were invented by men who like perky. If they were meant to ride that high, God wouldn't have invented gravity.

Ha Alice, good one about the bra.

About dogs laying on clothing. Once my dad's cousin put his dog at a boarding kennel in the country when he went on vacation. Somehow, the dog escaped and they called my dad who was listed as a contact. He went and got some of his cousin's clothing and they put them outside. The dog came back and was found lying on them--with a dog's great nose, he smelled the scent of his beloved and was lured back.

Doesn't Charlie ever steal any of the parts? Maybe that's how they get lost? :)

Socks loves feet. He doesn't care if they are cold, hot or cheese -flavored... he just loves human feet. Oh, and bathwater is also his "crack". He actaully tries to drink the bathwater while you are sitting in it. Birdie on the other hand loves to lick... she could groom herself, Socks, and everyone around her with hair for hours! Thank god for cat-lax to get rid of those peasky hairballs.

Oh, one more thing about Socks.. He also likes strings. He is obsessed with them. Okay this might be a little too much information, but last night we found string in his potty. Yikes! What do you do when your cat is obsessed with something and it's not good for him, but you really can't get rid of it?

Birdie,
That is so funny that Socks likes bath water. Jazzy likes bath water too. When ever I'm in the tub he has to be sitting on the edge and he drinks the water. He really likes it if I use bubble bath. Yuck! I don't know why and I try to keep him from drinking it, But he loves it and keeps comming back.

The bra thing with Bennie is so funny! Daisylouu is going to get you for that one Sandy! Maybe Dragon Enterprise’s can come up with a line of Bennie Bra’s! They get good money for bras at Victoria Secret so why not! One of my favorite pictures sent to me through email is of a cat sunbathing on a lounge chair with a cat bra on covering her many nips! I am sure y’all have seen it as it has made its way to my computer several times over the years...

Bleach! My Cheetah goes crazy for the smell of bleach on my hands! We live in GA where the humidity gets everything covered with green yucky mildew at times, so we have to use water and bleach solution to kill off the stuff. When we come into the house after a bleaching day, Cheetah comes a running! She nibbles on our fingers, rubs her head into our hands and starts acting as though are bodies are covered with Cat Nip! She rolls all over the floor and just acts crazy at the smell of bleach. It does not seem to affect Sheba. I find this such strange behavior for a cat...

My babies like their string or “snake’s” as we call them. They drag them around the house to where ever we are and lay them at our feet and stare at us until we start to play with them and the snake. Their favorite game is for me to drag it along behind me as I walk from the living room, through the dining room, kitchen and down the hall back to the living room. That is one of several circular routes we have in the house. They love to chase behind me as I drag the thing around from room to room. Only problem is, they usually bring us the string just as we put a DVD on to watch! We have to stop what we are doing and appease them or they just sit and give us the death stare! The snake is in bed with us on many mornings!

They also love their mice that grandma gives them each year at Christmas. One year in the grouping of mice was a bright orange one, yes Tennessee Orange! We named it Vol Mouse. For some reason it became their favorite mouse in the bunch of about 10 lying about the house. They would put that thing in bed with us every night and I would pitch it back into the sun room to find it in bed with us again the next day! This went on for the longest time. Then, one day no Vol Mouse in bed with us! I searched the house over and over and could not find Vol mouse anywhere. They throw them high in the air then bat them down as if they are catching a bird! I think it got tossed in the air and accidentally landed in the trash can in the bathroom. I have found mice in there before when dumping the trash on trash pick up day. I got into the habit of looking in the trash before tossing it out each week. Trash day is really the Saints chore of the house and he never looks at the trash. He says it is trash so why look at it? I see his point but being a good mommy, I must keep up with my babies’ toys so I always look. I think that the day it disappeared, the Saint had tossed the trash into the big can and off to the land field it went with the real mice. Since the loss of Vol mouse, we have tossed new ones to them and they have not shown interest in any until recently. Now we find either a red or green mouse in bed with us on most mornings. I call them Christmas mice! I step on and trip over those darn mice all the time! I put them back into their toy wagon or basket and in a few days the floor is filled with them again from them digging and taking out the mice until they find Christmas mice which I hide in the bottom to see if the girls can find them…

Well dear sister, thanks for ruining my chances with dragon! You always have to bounce yourself into first place!! No need for side-by-side comparison, Sandra is much more "endowed" than I am.....but since she weighs 145 lbs. compared to my 110 she is entitled.

Sorry to disappoint dragon, perhaps you'll consider me for cleaning the hot-tub when you're done entertaining? My little bra doesn't have a lot of padding, but it SHOULD and I'm just not the kind of girl to go get implants. SORRY!

None of my pets really have bizarre fetishes, I guess that's why we humans have to make up for their boring personalities ;)

I do have fun with my cats and a laser light.

Now back to my sweet OLDER sister (who also weighs more). She also has thicker and nicer hair compared to my thin scraggly mop...but mine is easier to control in the humid enironment of a hottub! She also has tatoos that are old and faded from the 80s and my body is pristine and unmarked. Oh yea, and I was in the gifted class in school, she wasn't.....she was too busy at parties in the woods. Good thing she lives in Tennessee because she was the "rebel".......while I was the angel. (psst, but I can be a devil in the hot tub)

Stella used to eat Hubby's socks and my hair ties. I would find them in the dog yard when I cleaned it. Needless to say they went in the trash. She stopped when she realized she would get regular meals everyday. I was so afraid that one would get stuck inside her, but thankfully they never did.

I used to have a dog that ate rocks too. He would throw them up. We had to clean the yard out all the golf ball sized rocks.

Well, well, well, well, well, well…….. By no means has Sandy ruined Daisylouu’s chances of getting Dragon into the hot tub. Daisylouu, I have seen “Sandra”, and I guarantee she didn’t “bounce” anywhere. I cannot believe that “Sandra” would stoop to such cheap tricks and vicious attacks on her hot chicky pooh sister. Oh, how wicked jealousy makes some women. I would expect such behavior from men, but it is a shame to see the fairer sex resort to this childishness.

It is obvious that “Sandra” cannot stand the thought of Daisylouu in the Boss’s hot tub after all. Daisylouu, I also have older siblings. They took great joy in making fun of me in front of others. And I know, that it was simply because they were jealous that they were not as fabulous as I am. It is obvious that it is the same situation between you and “Sandra”.

But, never fear, Daisylouu—I am not disappointed. Believe me, I much prefer natural to BIG and FAKE. I’ve felt implants, and they’re just “Yick”. Don’t forget, I’ve seen you in your Daisy Duke shorts, so I think you’re more than enough woman for me. You say you can be a devil in the hot tub. That’s pretty good, since devils have horns and little tails. With a little work, perhaps I can teach you my Dragon ways.

Skeeter, I’m a little confused on the Bra product line for Dragon Enterprise. When you say Bennie’s Bras, does that mean bra related toys or chewies for dogs? Or do you mean actual bras for dogs and cats? Or bras for women? I think any of these have great potential. I will gladly volunteer to be in the research department for the women’s bra line. It’s very important to be sure they “feel” just right.

I do NOT weigh 145. I now weigh 136-138. So there. And all my extra weight over yours is in my chest! And brain! Ha!

I might have tattos that are faded, but they are on my back and can't usually be seen and I have less scars, so you are not pristine. And I am too nice to bring up the forehead issue. :)

Oh, and Daisy was not an angel. I broke in the parents. I stood up for my rights and argued every point with them. She simply flew under the radar, because the parents were too busy worrying about my rebelious ways. I was a late bloomer. Daisy, on the other hand, was in a hot tub in kindergarten. I didn't have my first innocent kiss until I was 15! Of course, all this information will make Dragon breathe hot and heavy for Daisy, and that's fine by me!

And I too am very gifted, but Daisy is right, I was too busy having fun to care much about grades, though I usually made the honor roll despite my adventures. :)

Easter is all about lover Skeeter! I meant to tell you I love your mouse tales. My cats too have them all over. And the "favorite" Vols mouse story reminds me of Peanut and that one ball I got wtih a bit of lambswool that he just adored and that Scooter took an interest in. I can't believe I had to take it away permanantly it caused so much trouble.

On a side note: someone told me that those muliti-colored mice we get that are made in China can be bad for animals--something about the dye and other chemicals on them. I did make some homemade ones from fleece stuffed with catnip and the boys love them, but I still have mice on hand. Has anyone ever heard of Chinese-made mice being a problem?

I guess more natural anything--for man or beast--is always best.

Eating rocks.Why is it dogs eat such things? My vet told me a tale of a lab (he says they are bad about eating stuff) that ate a whole walnut in shell that had fallen from a tree. He had to operate to unblock him. After the dog recovered, he ate another one and had to have surgery! Also heard of a dog that ate an entire tube sock that blocked him up!

Tarzan, for a cat, sometimes acts like a dog when it comes to chewing. If I'm using a pencil around him and lay it down, he'll bite and chew it. Same with the fishing pole toys. He likes chewing on the handle more than the feather or whatever at the end.

I might have been in the hottub in kindergarten, but the bathing suit was on! And you had more boyfriends than I ever did....I only had 3 boyfriends in high school (and married the 3rd) and none of them animal lovers! Do you think I'd sleep with a non-animal lover?? Well, not in high school anyway, but I ended up marrying one, WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??

MY dog that eat rocks could also unshell nuts. We found him in a bag of green peanuts once at 4 in the morning. Thankfully he didn't get sick. This is also the same dog that could hold 5 tennis balls in his mouth at one time. I have a picture to prove it. When Huby gets back for CO with all my photo albums I will send it in. He just had a mouth fetish.

Today starts my 8 day vacation from Hubby. It's amazing how clean the house stays when he's not here. LOL

well adrienne, if I had an 8-day vacation from hubby, my house would be a mess. I tend to be the more relaxed one, and he is Felix Unger.

5 balls? What is he a Great Dane?

Ditto Daisylouu,

hubby left 2 days ago and the place is a wreck already. One of these days I am going to become organized and he will be so happy with me. Yesterday I decided to eat pizza all day and watch some reallly stupid tv. I was trying to eat healthy so I could possibly eventually fit into a bathing suit this summer. Oh well...Thats what is so great about our poochies and kitties. They don't care if my belly is hanging over the top of my bathing suit and the house is a shambles. They still love me!!!

Adrienne, send the pic to Sandy! I want to see!

Shannon, they make stretchy bathing suits!

I am the neat freak in this house! The Saint is always saying I had that Obsessive Compulsive disorder thing. So to prove him wrong, I let certain things slip away at times but everything has it place in the house and the trashcans can never get full and the bed must be made up each day! I remember someone saying to me that Cleanliness was next to Godliness and I think I took that term to heart! Hey, whatever it takes to get through those pearly gates!

Eating rocks! How do you eat rocks??? Ouch, I bet they hurt more then Extreme Hot Salsa coming out the other end! Yikes!!!

I have never heard about the mouse and dye thing. I will look on the package to see where these mice were made.

We went to our local Bird store today and the resident animals were there but one. They have Lily the Great Dane, K-C the beautiful blueish gray cat and Cody the white huskee type doggie. Cody was missing today. K-C came for his rub and Lily was dragging around and you could tell it was about time to go home for the day. It is funny to see cats and dogs in the Bird store but everyone that comes into the store asks about them when they do not see them. They send out a newsletter each month and Lily had a section dedicated to her first birthday. Her mom and sibling were there for the big event which was held in the store during hours! Can you imagine how crowded the store was with three Great Danes in it? Do we all love our pets or what?

We also went into PetsMart for cat liter. If we were not leaving for VA tomorrow, I would be the proud new mommy to another cat! She was a sweet natured long haired tortie that had a hair cut and she looked just like my girls with that hair cut! Although, I must say, I do a better job then their groomer did! Ha… They found her in a parking lot and she was all matted so the hair cut was the only way to clean her up. Anyway, I had never seen a long hair tortie before so I would have to let her fur grow out to see how pretty she is with full fur. She was so sweet that I am sure she will be adopted by this weekend! She was the only animal in the adoption room. It always makes me sad to think of them in there all alone. Do they take them somewhere at night or leave them in the store? Anyway, looking on the bright side of things, I am assuming that all the other babies found new homes but I am sure by tomorrow, they will have a room full of new ones to take the place of the adopted ones. Just breaks your heart to think of all the homeless animals out there…..

Daisylouu, Batteries! Can’t wait for us all to get in that hot-tub together and man bash! Can we still do that if Dragon is with us? I am not sure they make hot tubs big enough for all of us wenches! I do not have a sister and I envy the fun you have with sis Sandy or is it still Sandra for now…. Keep up the love girls….

Oh my gosh, don't even know where to start on this one.So much to commment on.
Ok, first of all, I thin Daisylouu and aI are more alike on the housekeeping thing. I am more of a Oscar than a Felix. Fly boy is more organized, could it be that is why he is such a good test pilot? And Skeeter girl, making beds every day? Oh my, that makes me feel bad, if I make my bed once a week I feel good. My master bedroom is upstairs so I figure if anyone come by they won't see it anyway so why bother?
Now onto other things.
Dragon it's good thhing that you can counsel animals and I can counsel people so we can make things civil in here. I do see it is time for Dr. Pam again. Daislylouu and Sandy love each other very much and they do have thier differences, they will call each other names and talk sh-t about each other but don't anyone else ever dare to hurt one or the other! These two girls would fight to the death for each other and that is so easy to see. Am I not right girls? I know, I have a sister and we are the same!
daisylouu, cats work just as well as the dogs too. And just ask any military wife about how well those stocked up batteries work. We do agree with you. Also girl, on the bra thing, I'm with you. I'm not all that well endowed but I am a firm believer in small and perky being every bit as good as the big old grapefruit and bigger. Lately I've even been thinking how maybe perky isn't as good as not wearing the bra and being comfortable, it feels so good to just set the puppies free. yea yea, I know, a play on words here with puppies and this being a animal blogg.And Daisy, can I call you Daisy? I knew even before the words left your mouth that you need not worry about Dragon still wanting to be in the hot tub with you even though you don't have the big ole grapefruits. You have to know by now that you looked so good in that photo he could see that was not a concern. Now maybe some men are on the big boob train but most are more into the butt thang. Well at least that is what they have told me over the years. I know my man appreciates the boobs but he is a real butt man.
Skeeter, on a more serious note, I sure hope that kitty won't be put to sleep if it doesn't get a home soon. It probably dose stay there in the store alone because they don't keep someone there overnight. It's the same in most vet clinics.

Batteries...THAT was what I forgot at the Walmart. haha..very quick thinking Daisyouu.

Yes Skeeter,you are right about the stretchy bathing suit. 40 hit me like a brick wall this year. I was hoping to eek out one more year in a 2 piece ( stop laughing!!) but my appetite and body are not cooperating. I am going to do the mature thing and just give up. Maybe I will buy a convertable and pierce something. Isn't that what men do during a midlife? Dr Pam..????

Pam you know alot about Cats R Us- do they stay alone at night at Petsmart or they go back to their facility? I love looking at them. I wish I had a bigger house or something so I could get more kitties. I have to go to Petsmart today. I noticed that using the Dragon measurement of kitty weight (could not see my Bubbys feet) My Bubby was grossly over-weight. Dragon you will be happy to know he is now on diet food. Bubby doesn't like it and told me to relay his displeasure specifically to you.

Sandy, I know you have told us this thousands of times-but what is your email address for pet pictures? I promise I will write it down and not ask again.
