To think animals are just disgusting?

I'm house sitting for my parents and am sitting on the sofa bf the baby and the cat has shot across the room back & forth because she has a shit stuck in her bum. Got DH to pull it out but luckily for both him & the cat it fell out before he did.

He then left to go home and the dog was sick. Then ate it. Boak.

This is why I love my horses, no arse-then-face licking, no eating-shit/vom and no rolling in stinky dead animals. shock

Anyone else got rank animals? smile

we have and have had them all.....dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and hamsters.

i also yearn for my own horse, i help at the stables a couple of days a week where im learning to ride.

i mucked out a stable of a horse that also shits in its water bucket.....i love horses but thats not so pleasant! it sort of dissolves.....why why why would an animal do this!!

the worst thing was when my cat was sick down the back of the radiator. every time the heating came on i could smell cat vom....had to pour jugs of water down the back of it to dislodge it...

she also drinks out of my glass of water every morning.

the dog seems less hassle. good job i love em all. (and i let my riding school pony kiss me on the lips....i dont tell DH!)

I really do wish I'd not asked, but thanks, OP!

My dog once came into the bedroom while DH and I were, ahem, having sex, jumped on the bed and gave DH's balls a good licking before settling down at the end of the bed to lick his own. GROSS.

My lovely old cat had a very furry arse and used to get poo gunged into it - which made his bum fur stick up like a kind of Johnny (Very) Rotten. Poor old thing then developed a bowel problem and couldn't make it downstairs so he would nip into the bathroom which had a lino floor and do a huge squelchy shit in there. But at least he was smart enough not to crap on the carpet. I had to wipe his arse with a babywipe.

Good times . . . .

And my other dog would go searching in the bathroom bin for used tampons to chew on. Bleughh. My new dogs are not allowed upstairs. Ever.

Small male guinea-pig I reckon is going to be an impacted blighter.
He had a turd the size of a hazelnut in his bum. DD and I had to use a babywipe to ease it out.
He lay there smugly.
(And he's only 2.4.yo. Goodness knows when he gets ancient) shock

Sparkling Cat (pic on profile) does none of this grossness. The worst it gets is she licks my eyebrows in the night. smile

This thread has been a real eye opener. I had no idea horse owners had to clean rim cheese. Maybe there's a gap in the market for a horsie fleshlight.

I had a dog who used to hang out in the field with the horses. He did this because he loved eating their poo. Looked out there one frosty morning and he was stood behind my scruffy tailed appaloosa with a steaming pile of shit on his head happily chomping away on some dung nuggets.

When I was a horsey girl (many years back) my mates gelding used to get really crabbit (bad tempered) when he was bunged up.
It called for a handful of Vaseline and a soft cloth confused.
I took her word for it !

ThatVikRinA22 Mon 04-Feb-13 22:49:42

and thats why i will get a mare!
no rim cheese for me...no no no no no!

MadCap grin

Frizzbonce Mon 04-Feb-13 22:52:36

MadCap - Dung nuggets!!!! grin What - like Cheesy Wotshits?!!

ThatVikRinA22 Mon 04-Feb-13 22:54:01

oh and my other cat once vommed up the mouse she had just devoured. i made DH deal with that one. he wanted cats.

and the dog once got upstairs and ate a 2lb bag of chocolate rejects from a factory.
she was sick all night. i had to sleep on the sofa with her. she looked so sorry for herself that i could not find it in me to be grumpy about it and luckily she was fine.

my old boy dog (god rest his soul) used to eat his own poo.

to be fair my existing girl dog is actually not much bother, and the 2 cats are actually very sweet despite the vom down the radiator and the vommed up mouse.

they are all getting on a bit now so i guess gross incident to age ratio is pretty small for the pleasure they give.

Vicar you just have to put up with the very tarty whinneying and pouring out gallons of pee when they're in season (and much worse at the end of season) when they get a whiff of a male.

Gelding smeg or pints of pee.......decisions.

(Your dream horse is out there and if it's a gelding, just get your gloves on) grin

MadCap Mon 04-Feb-13 22:55:41

I also have a cat who won't simply jump over the baby gates (which I know she can, she regularly clears 6' fences outside) she must use the walls as a springboard in some kind of crazy parcour type acrobatics stunt. As a result,I'm constantly cleaning muddy paw prints off the walls.

FunnysInLaJardin Mon 04-Feb-13 22:56:43

my cats are lovely and clean and wash themselves and each other and bury their poo Thank You

ThatVikRinA22 Mon 04-Feb-13 22:57:44

omg!
yep i guess i shall just deal with it as and when, as i do with all my other furries! i got home on Sunday after my lesson and a day helping out at the stables - DH says i smelled of horse.....the sad thing is i like it! everyone else gives me a wide birth....smile

Id rather clear up animal
Shit than human shit!!! Most the animals I know are cleaner than half the people that I serve. Cannabis, bo and piss is far worse than smelling like "dog"

Animals can't help where they poo people can.

Wheresmycaffeinedrip agreed. You only have to get on a few buses to stop complaining about the smell of dog.

And I'd sooner clean up any type of shit than scrape off a horse's knob cheese.

Boomerwang Mon 04-Feb-13 23:18:01

I haven't laughed this much in a long time! Cheesey horse dick! Jehovah's witnesses enquiring about your guinea pig's anal sac evacuation expertise! A dog with horseshit on its head! Cat masturbation!!!

My eyes are streaming.

My boyfriend owns two cats and a dog. The cats aren't so bad, but the dog is revolting. She eats the catshit from their litter tray. I can tell when she's been in there because she gets bits of cat litter stuck around her lips and up her nose. Because of this, I screech at the damn thing if she dares to go anywhere near my daughter. She also vomits and eats it back up. She moults hair EVERYWHERE and I vacuum at least once a day and give her a brush down because I am sick of picking hair off my daughter, her dummy, her juice bottle and grabbing tufts of it out of her hands before she shoves it in her mouth. I wish my boyfriend would get rid of the damn thing.

DENMAN03 Mon 04-Feb-13 23:27:37

Hilarious comments! I have two sphynx cats, ie naked, so I dont have hair issues, however one likes to wipe her bum on the carpet after frequenting the litter tray. The other thinks its great to bite my eyelashes in the morning when he thinks its breakfast time!! (its still dark..take the hint)

As for horse cheese, I must confess I have never cleaned the horses bits! He seems fine however and hes a grumpy bugger at the best of times so I would be facing a hoof in the head if I tried to go near that with a scrubbing brush!

whethergirl Mon 04-Feb-13 23:34:40

I have a cat who never leaves any shit residue around his arse, always vomits outside and goes in the corner behind the sofa to fart. My ds on the other hand...

How often does a horse need their knob de-cheesed then?

Ds ate a whole load of horse poo once. His mouth was full of it.

Naysa Mon 04-Feb-13 23:38:43

whethergirl They say 6 months but some horses are really clean and could go longer than a year, however some are proper cheesey and need doing every couple of months.

our neurotic, insane but adorable cat decided on lametta as her Christmas indulgence this year. She pawed it off the Christmas tree and swallowed it. We kow this because we had to pull it out of her arse, where a good three inches of it was dangling festively out of her butthole. More than once. Nice.
