Hi Everyone,
 
Does anyone besides me have crazy pets, some perhaps a little warped? I have a 3 yr old small Britney Spaniel that is just a trip.  He loves my vacumn cleaner...no kidding, the dog goes bonkers when I bring the sweeper out. He starts pawing at my arm wanting me to take the sweeper to him, use the attachment. He will bark at me to let me know its his turn and he is ready. He will run over and sit on the 2nd step waiting for me to come there and vacumn him off-no kidding!!! He likes for me to use the attachment with the hose that has the small short bristled brush on the end. He sits there and lets me sweep him from head to toe. He has recently started going to closet where the sweeper is kept and sits there and barks.
 
My female golden retriever she lets me sweep her too, she is afraid she is missing out on some action. But, she is not nuts about it like the other one. She sure does not run to the closet door and barks either, lol. She does it because she does not want to be outdone by the other one.
 
Anyone else??????

My last dog used to love getting vacuumed too. Anytime you brought out the sweeper he would sit and whine until he got a complete cleaning with it. That dog also loved the water, especially bubble baths. I would have to make sure to shut the door if my oldest kid, who was around 5 or 6 at the time, was taking a bath because the dog would jump in there with him.

Our cat is a bit goofy too. He thinks he is part dog. Whenever he hears a car door he will run to the front door and sit there just like the dog does ready to greet whoever it may be. The cat also likes the dogs chew toys. It is quite funny seeing him go walking through the house with a plastic bone in his mouth.

LOL. Wish I had a crazy pet to tell you stories about, but any dogs I ever had were terrified of the vacuum cleaner! You're lucky, Susie; makes brushing a lot easier!

The vacuum sent any animals I ever had heading for the hills!

The last thing our Cat Meiko does before going to sleep is chew on my feet, starting at the toes, and working his way up to my calves. He burys his teeth just enough to get me to holler out in pain, and then back off just a little. He knows exactly what he is doing. He won't do it to the wifey, just me. What a blast!

When one of my cats was younger, she used to LOVE water. She'd lie in the sink while it was wet and/or the water was running & greet you as soon as you got out of the shower. She couldn't get enough of the water....until she fell in the pool! One day she was sitting on top of a wet slide going into the pool & she lost her footing & went flying down the slide & into the pool! If you ever wondered whether or not cats can swim, they sure can! It was quite a sight!

My youngest cat, Gizmo, always sleeps with me and he curls up in my arm like a baby and insists I rub his belly. If I don't he will grab my hand and pull it to his belly. Squeaker has a thing about wet hair and will lick it if you sit anywhere near him. Bear, an Australian Shepard, thinks he is a cat and likes to sit on the back of the recliner and jump from chair to chair across the living room. It's about 10 feet between the chairs too.
I miss the 2 ferrets, they were absolutely nuts! They would steal anything the could get a hold of and also drove the cats nuts. They loved to play under the blankets and would curl up in a ball on your pillow and sleep with you. They were very close sisters and died less than a day apart.

Skeye,
ROFL! When I was cat-sitting a couple of week's ago for my goddaughter's cat, Birch, he would try to jump up onto the sink while the water was running and I was brushing my teeth or something, and I found him a couple of times examining the bathtub, and trying to climb the shower curtain from the inside. My cat of 20 years used to love to come into the bathroom, curl up on the bathmat or something until a faucet got turned on. Then he was outta there!

But the image of that cat sliding down into the water...that's a keeper!

Forgot about Bubba's water issues. He refuses to drink from the water dish, so I turn the bathtub faucet on for him. He also walks the edge of the tub when we take showers and sometimes pokes his head in and looks at you as to say" Hey dummy, your getting all wet in there"
Giz also likes to play with the fish tanks. He will paw at them through the glass and then jump on top and paw at them through the opening in the top. Sometimes the gold fish will nip at his paw. Him and Squeaker get drinks from the fish tanks also. I guess it's flavored water.

Oh I can also relate to cats and water. Like most cats ours doesn't like to get wet, but at the same time Amigo likes to play with water. He will sit at the water bowl and swipe at it with his paw or will do the same thing if you turn on a faucet.

If you take a shower and don't shut the bathroom door all the way he comes in and pushes the shower curtain back enough to look in and so he can take swipes at water coming down from the shower. He isn't "attacking" the water but playing with it just like he would a piece of string.

Another thing this cat likes to do is come in and jump on our backs when we are washing Bubbers (4 y/o son) hair, and he will also sit on the edge of the tub and watch the kid play in the tub.

Last and certainly not least this goofy cat is the most talkative cat I or my wife have ever seen. He will sit there and meow at you and wait for you to say something and then meow again and his meows change tone depending on what you say to him. I was having one of these "conversations" with him one day in the kitchen. He was out of food in his bowl, something he hates even if he has just eaten, so I knew what he was going on about. At one point I told him he didn't need any more food and to get over it and I got this long, whiny, attitude fed meow in response and then he goes running into the living room and proceeds to meow his head off to my wife.

Hehe, I have 20 pets....11 rats(8 which are babies that are going to a new home very soon), 5 guinea pigs, and 3 degus, I'm not allowed to have cats or dogs in my apartments, or else i prolly would have those too. I have a guinea pig named Bogart that is very cuddly and follows me around always wanting me to rub his chin. Also one of my rats, the daddy rat, loves to jump on my shoulder scaring me half to death when I'm not expecting it, but he'll sit on my shoulder for hours if he could, he just loves being with me. And my 3 degus are just plain crazy, always making me laugh.

But I use to have a cat many years ago, a pure bred Maine coon, that would only accept ICED water with FRESH water(he HAD to see you get the water and ice with his own eyes) and it had to be set up on the counter. If you didnt do this, he would sit their and give you the look of death, and the other 3 cats where not be allowed to drink from the same dish as him. Also this same cat absoutly loved being pushed around in baby strollers. My family got this cat in 1991 and he died in 2001, so I was 7 years old when we got the cat, and as long as I pushed him in the baby stroller, he would let me dress him up in baby clothes with booties and a baby bonnet, and he never complained. He would just lay their in baby clothes while I pushed him around in the stroller and people where shocked that he let me do that (please remember I was only seven lol).

But I could go on forever writing stories about all the pets I've had and still have....

Some really funny stories enjoyed reading all of them, lol. Skeye would have loved seeeing that sight of a cat going down a slide, how funny.

My old cat liked to come in the bathroom while I took shower. When I would wipe the shower door down it was a game with him trying to grab my hand thru the glass. He also would walk in the wet shower as soon as I opened the door. He would walk around and get his feet wet, then sling his feet like cats do when they are wet, He was so funny.

My Britney is a talker and yes he has different tones when he barks. If he gets scolded, he argues back at me and I never have the last word. He always has the last word. He is also a packrat and thief and has been since he was a puppy. He walks around the house scoping things out to swipe and hides his loot under his pillow. Missing a shoe, cell phone, loaf of bread you name it, check out Brit's house.

I have two cats who are insane.

My boy cat Saito *Si-tow* rolls around like a dog and will great you at the door wagging his tail and begging for love.

My girl cat Emily (often called loush or emmy) is a 4lb bundle of terror. She just jumps and plays like a ferret would and loves to steal just about anything and hid it. To this day we have still not found the hubby;s wedding ring! She also begs like a dog for people food (which she gets only meat in small bits a few times a month) and can do Sit and dance when treats are presented to her.

Hysterectomy at 25

4 laproscopic surgeries since 24

Cervical Stenosis between C 2 and C6 and two bulging disks located C2/3 and C4/5
