What do you love about pets?

Yeah, I know, what's not to love about pets? The list of things that I love about cats and dogs is pretty long and would look something like this:
  • I love to hear a cat purr.
  • I love the way all of our pets greet us when we come home - Sadie has a cute way of greeting us by tilting her head to the right and lifting up her lip on her left side in kind of an Elvis Presley way. The cats are always waiting by the door when we walk in from the garage with Isabella sprawled out across the hallway so we have to stop to pet her before walking by.
  • I love watching them sleep so peacefully and when they are dreaming I wonder what they are chasing or what Sadie is barking at.
  • I love when the cats snuggle with me or lay on my lap while I'm working.
These are just a few of the many, many things that I love about pets. What do you love about your pets?

I love it when Jane cuddles up on my lap and purrs! And when we play hide and seek and she runs through the house...that always makes me laugh!

Skitto, Peanut and Chyanne said...

We love when you humans snuggle with us too. We hope you guys have a purrfect weekend.

Ok now Peanut here, Skitto seems to think that just because she is older she can do all of my meowing for me. I just wanted you guys to know that I knew in my lil heart my mommy would never ever stop looking for me. I have come a long way to be with her and my sisters and I knew she would come get me. I am back to my same ole self getting into mommy's spider plants and sleeping on mom and dads heads at night, I never forgot one thing even the naughty things I LOVE to do and I am finally safe back at home where I belong and I heard mommy tell daddy she is going to make sure I NEVER ever get seperated from my family again. Thank you so much for caring about us animals and for being my fur friends.

I love how my dog (and my cat before he died) know EXACTLY how I feel, even if I'm successfully hiding it from people. Animals always know when we are happy, sad, frustrated, and they always come to my rescue. My dog puffs up her lips and tries her darndest to talk to me (sounds like ra row raw! or "I want it" in dog-speak). Pets don't judge us or mind if we aren't rich, as long as we scratch their scratchy places. I love them!

I love how my cat always know where to find me in the house. She even knows when I'm about to reach home :)

Aww, i love it when my chinchilla sits on me & watches TV with me for play time.

Tulip's Talking said...

I LOVE when they are purring too, each of their individual personalities and who gets along and who loves who. When they sleep together I wish I were in the middle. I LOVE it when they love us, reach out to touch one of us to remind us they are there, how they never travel far from a call out the door, when the herd sleeps on the bed with us, and I could go on and on...

I love that they're there, so I can love on them.

I love my pets all equally with all my heart. But,one of my favorite things is bedtime with the kitties. I sleep on my side with one across my ankles, one on top of my head on the pillow, one in front of my chest wrapped in my arm. And, sometimes little Nike sleeps up on my hip. The sound of all of them purring puts me right to sleep! I think that is as close to heaven as you can get!

The sound of a cat purring cannot be beat!

I love the way my dog sits in the front window and waits for us to get home from work...seeing his cute little face looking out the window at us when we pull in the driveway just makes me smile :)

Our cat Snacker likes to sprawl across the entryway as soon as he hears the door too in the hopes of getting pet as we come in. We're convinced he's not really a cat but a dog trapped in a cat's body :)

Mom loves when Sniffie sleeps on her pillow and makes biscuits before she gets comfy, when Tamir comes up and purrs like crazy as soon as he sees Mom, Allie loving love no matter when, Ellie being the little Diva and being a love bug when SHE wants, Clifford bringing her the teddy bear when she walks in the room, Cubby looking up with his big sweet eyes....

Ok...she loves EVERYTHING about us!

I honestly don't know what I would do without Molley and Puma. They are my only company most of the time.

My hubby is on the road quite a bit and my kids grown. So they are my babies now.

I can't even sleep unless they are cuddled up with me!

Hope your weekend is going well!!:-)

The Fitness Diva said...

I love their sweet, beautiful little faces, and the way they're always trying to cuddle up with me.
One always greets me at the door when I come in, and they both love to sleep with me!
I could not see my life without my little sweethearts! ;)

Hey, just wanted to let you know that while I am still recovering from my shoulder surgery, and getting better every day, I still can't type for long periods of time without pain. That said, I enjoyed your post and am glad I dropped by.

peace,

Sammy does a little 'dance' for me in the morning...sort of a circling and hopping at the same time! It's so cute!
