sign your pets name underneath yours.

It makes you look slightly odd

oops all mine say 'and bump' this year!

It's only because I can't remember who I've told/not told about being PG..and so that they don't have to ask if they see me!

lol Jux, she must surely be as mad as a hatter

compo Mon 08-Dec-08 17:50:58

I mean who has 18 cats unless you own a cat sanctuary grin

Jux Mon 08-Dec-08 17:58:41

Yeah she was completely barmy. She invited us round to play in the garden, but couldn't allow us in the house as it was filled with cat shit, and there was a fox which used to sleep in her room and gave her scabies. Yeuch. Used to be a teacher, btw!

Admittedly I hadn't considered "and bump" to be the announcement of an impending arrival to people you never see so I apologise.

Cats and dogs-well part of the family so hey why not?

i'd rather see a card signed by the pets than get one of those damn round-robin letters.

Jux Mon 08-Dec-08 18:11:57

Oh they're unreadable aren't they, Expat? Absolutely hate it; the only way you can decipher them is if you already know everything they're telling you, in which case you don't need to read them. Utterly ghastly.

I have sent a card to the adults and dogs in the house and put from us and the cat.

So there!

my Mum always signs cards from her goldfish as well as her ~ but only if writing to the grandchildren!

I like getting the round robin letters from my "friends" as I have a good old laugh at them. Didn't enjoy the (unexpected) one from my old boss telling everyone about her cancer, though.

oooh yes I agree!

'and the bump' is just about acceptable for a first pregnancy I think.

My son's OT named her CAR, 'nancy' and I struggle now to see her in her professional capacity and give her her due respect.. aibu??

My in-laws did this, yes they are odd! They came for the first Christmas I spent with dh and I was rather bemused to find I also had presents from the dog!

Hmm, that get me thinking, what's mumsnet etiquette on thank you letters to canines then?

Itsjustsorandom Mon 08-Dec-08 19:23:44

It's a lovely thing to do.

piscesmoon Mon 08-Dec-08 19:39:06

I used to get a present from my cat!

LynetteScavo Mon 08-Dec-08 20:55:43

You mean you sent yourself a present and pretended to yourself it was from the cat? hmm

AuraofDora Mon 08-Dec-08 21:03:52

there are cards in clintons from pets, have you not seen them?
the assistant and i had a giggle then she said the pensioners buy them tis sad really

dont mind pets on cards bumps are odd mind you
and yes rather that than a round robin bil does his in 2pt with complete lack of self awareness

piscesmoon Mon 08-Dec-08 21:48:51

No Lynette-I never asked but presume DH!

NotanOtter Mon 08-Dec-08 21:50:59

i do seal the envelope with possett

shopaholicDIVA Mon 08-Dec-08 21:57:03

yes, its odd. i used have card from relative untill she had baby.

NotanOtter Mon 08-Dec-08 21:59:53

sorry but bump or bean are not good

CliffRichardSucksEggsInHell Mon 08-Dec-08 22:00:42

Does anyone else fancy Jack Dee?

Megglevache Mon 08-Dec-08 22:01:21


pointydog Mon 08-Dec-08 22:03:31

yeah, quite fancy him

pointydog Mon 08-Dec-08 22:03:47

not half as much as sean locke, though

CliffRichardSucksEggsInHell Mon 08-Dec-08 22:04:56

Don't know who Sean Locke is. Dee is a bit like my dh in his attitude, moans about bloody everything. Difference is, Dee is sexy whilst doing it whereas dh is just bloody annoying!

pointydog Mon 08-Dec-08 22:05:47


sean locke - the specky southerner on 8 out of 10 cats
