Secret Animal Confessions: Why I Spent Last Night On the Air Mattress and Other Strange Things We Do for Our Pets
July 05, 2011
For those of us with furry friends in our lives, we can all probably admit to doing some odd, weird, or even unthinkable things for our pets. I once knew a lady who had to stroke her cat’s back in the morning so he would eat his food. Another family wouldn’t wake an elderly dog even when he was sleeping in Dad’s coveted recliner. One gentleman has to keep a jar of biscuits by the back door because his dog will only come in for a tasty treat.
I myself can confess to being kicked off of the couch while trying to share it with a Great Dane, cutting up my rabbit’s lettuce because he refuses to eat whole leaves of the green stuff, and keeping a towel nearby at all times to soak up doggy slobber.
Despite their quirks, animals are well worth the sacrifice we make for them, and are some of the most rewarding souls we meet during our lifetimes.
