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

This might out me (if anyone remembers!) but when I was about 10 or 11, we visited a friends house who had this enormous boxer dog.

He was incredibly randy and always had his 'lipstick' out. No bother, but pretty gross. When we went to play in the garden after lunch, this bloody dog took a shine to me and constantly mounted me. I managed to wriggle away most of the time but then it pinned me down and practically raped my leg.

I was mortified - especially as everyone was laughing. I'm afraid I've disliked boxers ever since!

Before he was neutered, my parents' dog used to get very, er, excited while having a pooh. It was so horrible having to stand there waiting, plastic bag at the ready, hoping no one came past as he squatted there grunting and looking proud of himself while highly aroused <boaks>

I feel so grateful for my poor old mongrel dog, Bailey, he is wonderful. (but i do clear up poos for him)

Moomin we called it 'carpet surfing' when the dogs did it smile

Getorf, no, it's surprising but in all the loving descriptions of how to groom your pony one finds in pony books, cleaning a gelding's dick does not feature.

Posted too soon!

One of my earliest memories is of the family cat shuffling across the kitchen floor on his bum as he had worms.

YADNBU.

This may out me to people who were there, but it so has to go into this thread.

I used to do work experience in a boarding kennels - which is basically where you leave your dog when you go to work or on holiday-- and one week we had two Pointers in "Kennel 2". These two weren't handling the kennel situation very well and were both having liquid poo, and if we weren't fast enough getting them out and hosing the kennel down, they would lick it up.

That lunch time we were all in the staff room and someone was eating Chilli con carne. Everyone who watched him eat it felt sick and he had no idea why until someone pointed out, it looked like "kennel 2" grin

"Sharing the house with animals" would be my contribution to those occasional threads you get on here with titles like "Stuff people seem to love which you just don't get." My children make enough mess. I never, ever, ever want animals in this house. Luckily, DW feels the same. (Neither of us had pets when growing up - that probably makes a difference.)

A word of warning re emptying dog anal sacs. If you don't cover the 'operative area' properly with wadding or whatever the liquid can squirt straight into your eye - lurrvvly - gets all gunged into your eye lashes. Plays havoc with your contact lenses also - the voice of bitter experience!!

This thread should go in classics, hilarious.
I had the misfortune of working with animals for many years and cleaned up shit/vomit you name it day in day out.
One that sticks in my mind was a white English Bull terrier puppy that had just had braces fitted eating it's own shit right before the owners turned up. I remember it because I vomited whilst picking shit out it's teeth.

GetOrf Wed 06-Feb-13 16:01:45

I had absolutely no idea about the geldings or the mares cocking their tails.

SMEG on horse dicks. Jesus christ. They don't mention that in the Pullein-Thompson novels do they?

One day last year I was standing in the kitchen when water began to drip in from above. The bathroom! I thought. Some nurk has left the bathwater running AGAIN! Wrong. Cat had peed so copiously on the bathroom floor that what was streaming through the ceiling was cat pee. Oh how we laughed. Being rained on by cat pee was such fun. Who knew such a tiny cat had so much pee in her?

Have now installed a litter tray to deal with the cat-who-pees-when-cross-which-is-always, which the dog regards as a labrador snack centre.

And I remember when I was little stepping in some incredibly liquid shit the cat had left on my bedroom floor, and screaming for my mother, who screamed back at me not to be so lazy, and come and find her... Cue more screaming from me, knowing full well that to drip cat shit all over the place as I came to find her would go down extraordinarily badly. The noise level was amazing.

Sally, I know people are disgusting, but this is supposed to be lighthearted and a bit silly!

I love my animals to bits, just hoping that mine aren't the only disgusting ones!

Took parents dog out to the high street with the pram and she had to do a massive shit right in the middle if the pavement. Awkward. Couldn't have possibly done it in the gutter because then no one would be staring at me. Thank god for nappy bags!

catladycourtney1 Wed 06-Feb-13 12:52:05

meddie haha, my cat does that too, or sometimes she manages to shit actually on the edge of the tray, so if it's a bit loose it goes down both sides and underneath. She also refuses to clean her arse, which is good in a way because she likes to share my food, but it means I have to chase her around with a baby wipe after she craps.

Keep em coming!

Not my pooch but mothers used to love eating out of bait tins when on a canal walk. Cheeky bugger once jumped into a lorry cab and stole a blokes sandwich. Poor mortified mother had to pop home mid walk and make him a new one.

I once had a dog give me a golden shower while he was led on the back of the sofa....

Boomerwang England Wed 06-Feb-13 12:11:50

Let the lighthearted thread stay lighthearted, that's what I say!

Sallyingforth Wed 06-Feb-13 10:24:19

OP
Humans are animals too, and we are certainly disgusting. Just look at the way we treat each other, and other animals.

Twattybollocks Wed 06-Feb-13 10:20:59

50bales, too right, mine likes to wait until I'm doing a tail bandage and then lets rip for about 30 seconds right in my face. He also shit on the farriers shoulder last summer

50BalesOfHay Wed 06-Feb-13 09:07:53

Also, just about every horse I know sees having its back feet lifted as the equine equivalent of 'pull my finger'

monsterchild Wed 06-Feb-13 02:10:52

The pooch is not allowed to lick my face. I refuse to be a butt-licker-by-proxy.

M0naLisa Wed 06-Feb-13 01:32:05

Yes animals are disgusting creatures.

Mum has a dog and I dread going because he always licks me eurghhh

DizzyZebra Wed 06-Feb-13 01:10:57

Oh and my horse mounted my mum. She felt that was disgusting, And was not impressed when he presented her with his knob every time she went near him after that. The joys of adolescent colts.

DizzyZebra Wed 06-Feb-13 01:09:55

Has your horse ever had to have an enema? I can assure you, That's disgusting.

And embarrassing when a small child walks by going "DADDY!!! Why is that horsey weeing out of his bum?" As you stand therre wanting to ground to swallow you, trying not to get splattered by shit.
