Okay, now it's the time for talking about animals, which can be really close to your heart (pets), but some of you can really afraid of them. Are there animals which you really are afraid of? Or is there something that you love? Do you have any pets? Want to tell us about it/them? For me, I will be traveling this weekend and I will be bringing my pet with me. So to make sure that my pet will be safe I'm thinking of having a carrier for her. Upon searching, I stumbled to this pet carrier which I think is perfect for my dog. What do you think about this pet carrier? Will it be nice and comfortable for my dog during travel?

My cat was skunked by the back door a couple of weeks ago. I'm not afraid of skunks, but I steer clear of them.

Back away slowly.......

My dog sniffs the air when I put him out at night, and he does a quick about-face if he smells a skunk.
He will however sniff any pile of dog poop he comes across, but I guess we all draw the line somewhere. :lol:

That remains to be seen. If he gets sprayed a second time, then he isn't that smart.
Mine was a few years old when I got him from a local canine rescue organization.
He might have had previous 'experience' with skunks that I don't know about. :lol:

He was sprayed 3x several summers ago. :shock: He had so many peroxide/baking soda shampoos, he was sporting a red coat that year. :lol:

Does he like getting bathed? Zelda actually doesn’t mind being bathed, but only on her terms!

I’ll leave it up to the OP, but I think this thread should be merged with the “Saved Kitten” thread.

If referring to the Saved Kitten thread, that thread is not just about cats. I am sure Albert would appreciate keeping the tread alive with all pet owners sharing pics, stories about their pets.

I have never read it. I am not a cat person, and the title implies that it is about cats. You can understand my thinking … right?

Absolutely. But members have shared their dogs, spiders, snakes, birds and cats in that thread. Despite not being a cat person, you should give a read – some heart warming stories in there.

He tolerates it, but only because he's resigned to the fact that he has no choice in the matter. :lol:

I know! Doesn’t happen all the time, but Zelda will come and jump onto the sink when she is up for a bath. She gets wet and loves being scrubbed down with a wet towel or face cloth. Purrs like mad then usually runs into the living room to roll around on the carpet.

No even in my dreams would my cat hop into a tub all on his own. He does love his 'brush', a daily morning session where he gets rubbed down nose-to-tail with a dripping wet brush, often looking like he just had a bath by the time it's done. Purrs all the way through....I guess it reminds him of his mom's tongue bath.

Strange....it's the only time I know for a fact he doesn't mind getting wet. :lol:
