have you ever offended your pet?

Oh dear, I have offended my cat: Jeri gets dry food, hairball treats and then wet food. She also likes a wee bit of milk in the mornings. And just now I plopped her canned food into her dibble of milk instead of on top of her dry food. Good lord. You'd think I'd killed her. She squalled like she was dying. I am certain she used naughty words at me. And then she stomped off and refused to eat it.

    I'm not sure if I offend Finlay or not but there are a lot of times it's obvious I've p*issed him off due to my inability to do things "right" I don't mix food correctly, get the dry food to canned food ratio wrong, choose the wrong treat. The look I get is more along the lines of "why are you so stupid" rather than anger, but he marches off to his kennel to show me he is unimpressed. Lol

    All the time, she's very easily offended. She's very particular about touch. She will not touch certain fabrics. She doesn't like to be touched right after a bath, or on her tail and hip area. She also hates it when you talk while she's trying to sleep. She'll thump her tail at you until you shut up.

    My dog is *very* docile. You can pry open his mouth and pull food/whatever he is chewing right out, and he doesn't get angry or snippy, but he looks SO offended when you do it. Just sits there with these big sad eyes looking at you like, "WHY would you DO that to me?????"

    Hazel usually gets dry food in the morning and wet food at night. The times when I've left dry food out for her all day because I would be away from home for extended periods, she looks at me like I'm crazy and the food goes untouched. There have been times that I've fed her wet food at midnight for this reason.

    It's hard to offend my own dogs, but I have offended my BFF's little dog. I had the hiccoughs with slight burps once when she was sitting on my lap, and she looked up at me with an expression of disgust and horror.

    Poor little Pixie. I set her down after that.

    Calvin is pretty easy going, but most likely it happens on a daily basis. He just ignores me. :flower:

    Not that I recall. But then, my (dearly departed) cat didn't live long enough to see me watching "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

    She would have disapproved. I can just picture her withering gaze. Totally deserved.

    Wurly and proud!

    I have to say even at her young age I have offended Jade. I got pretty disgusted and gave me a "will you shut up" look when I was on the phone while she was in my lap. She finally got up, looked back at me (cutting her eyes) and went to sleep on my bed.

    When I come home after petting another dog, Sheba acts like I've been cheating on her.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    Pita acted offended and looked at me with disgust pretty much every day for 11 years. I just loved that about her. : )

    My Beethoven gets upset and sulks if I call him a "bad dog".
  • MojoDojoMojoDojo Posts: 702Registered Users
    We keep Kimi away from the food dish when we feed our two kitties so that Mojo has a chance to eat without Kimi pushing him out of the way and eating everything.

    She looks so put out when we do that. Get's this wide eyed look that just says - "I thought you LOVED me! YOU TRAITOR!"

    So.... yeah. Mojo's pretty hard to offend and I don't think I'd notice if I did - he always has this peeved expression because of how his eyes are shaped.

    Oh Gawd yes.

    My tom is very laid back. If and when I happen to offend him his eyes get huge, he gives me a look of total shock and dismay (why you do that?) and runs.

    His sister is hell on wheels, but thats why I love her. She is offended by his existence and sometimes mine. She stomps around, huffs and puffs, growls, hisses, screeches... All that good stuff. If I give her the wrong food or stop petting her too soon, she lets me know about it. When she is really mad she threatens to slap me. That doesn't go over well. Lol. She is a fuzzy toddler.

    I can't stand it when their feelings are actually hurt or they are upset, though. They will have nothing to do with me for 2 weeks after a move. :(

    Now my moms cat, which is my cats sister, takes the cake. She will rub up against your legs, look up at you lovingly, and hiss. She has some wires crossed, but she is hysterical.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    Yup. If I'm petting my dog Linda and I just stop, she turns around and stares at me until I get the hint. Otherwise she leaves. Or if I don't pet her first thing when we wake up everyday, she looks at me like I've personally offended her. And my parrot starts screaming if I'm in the kitchen getting food and I don't offer her any -__- and my beloved Coco (tragically taken from me by a hit and run driver) who would growl at me when I would attempt to take him out of my mom's bed. - RIP

    I used to have 5 dogs and a parrot, the stories go on and on :)

    My cat lives at my parents house. I always sing to her (in the tune of Akon's whose that girl) "who's that caaaat up, up in the house, up up in the house.." she was sleeping today and looked right at me with her ears bent back and went to the basement and sat at the bottom of the stairs until I coaxed her back. She sat with me, but was not happy about it:

    Now she is sitting right on my leg sucking up

    AH! My sister-in-law's cat, Echo, will smack you if you offend her (usually by picking her up). She won't use claws, but she'll give you that "I'm gonna smack you!" look, and if you don't comply to her wishes, she'll reach up one of her paws and slap your cheek.

    It's hilarious.

    I've pissed her off on purpose because it amuses me to get smacked by a cat.

    I just remembered something.

    If I break wind in bed when she is near me, Sadie-Kate gets up and stares at the area from which the sound issued. It's kind of embarrassing.

    Curie will get grumpy with me if she's on my lap and I am talking. She lifts her head, looks at me, and lets out a little chastising mew.

    I offend Corona on a daily basis, when I don't get out of bed fast enough for his liking. He sits on my nightstand and pushes things (my phone, chapstick, books) off my nightstand onto the floor.

    Wee One meows in surprise when I sneeze. I think it's a bit too loud for her liking.

    Bastet is VERY grumbly, but also really passive. If you try to move her and she doesn't like it, she emits this whiny low growl. But she would never actually follow it up with anything, she's just a grumpy noodle of a cat.

    You break wind in your bed!?!? You probably pee in swimming pools, too.

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    I offend the cat on a regular basis:
    *when I brought him home and there was a dog already living here
    *when I don't get up early enough to meet his needs,
    *when I roll over in the middle of the night, knocking him off my back, butt, or whatever body part he's decided to sleep on,
    *when I dare to use the stairs that he is sitting on, unless, of course, I'm going up to feed him,
    *when I do not feed him according to his preference, which would be every hour on the hour.

    Hee.. All of this applies to Mr. Duke, too!

    My dog gets offended anytime I pet, feed, brush, talk to--or really just look in the general direction of--the cat.

    Whenever we went on vacation and boarded our malamute...he would ignore us for a day or two when we got home. The longer he was boarded...the longer he would ignore us. It was kind of funny...although we did feel bad somewhat...but it was funny.

    Haha. That is what my Bunny does too. Her paw comes up as a warning, or she will swat the air like "that will be your face, next time". When she was little the claws would come out, but I eventually got her to re think that. It was necessary. She likes to rub my face in the morning to wake me up, or anytime she thinks petting is required. This was not pleasant at first. Now she just barely touches my face with the tips of her fluffy paws. She can be a sweetie, but don't let that fool ya'. ;)

    **I find it funny that her brother is part bob cat and maine coon, he is massive, and he is the most gentle and docile cat you have ever met in your life. If he hisses or growls, there is a legitimate threat. But his sister... She has that wild girl mentality.

    Took the cats to the vet, Goodnight moon didnt talk to us until the next day.

    hendrix jumped on my back while i was sleep and it freaked me out, so i jumped up knocking her on the floor. she didnt sleep in my bed with me for two days after.

    i told edgar he had a fat head, he looked at me with huge, crazy, eyes and turned his back to me.

    last night edgar was being mean to his sister so my sis gave him a scolding. when she walked pass him, he reached out and smacked her hand.

    Sophie is usually a laid back kitty but when she is not fed at a certain time in the morning she raises all type of ruckus. She will scratch the carpet and bang on my closet door until I get up out of bed and feed her. It is so funny.

    My Sallie likes to follow me everywhere around the house. So when I go into the bathroom and she can't come in, she gets offended. She usually bangs on the door and starts meowing until I let her in. Even when I am taking a shower I hear the banging. It sometimes scares me cause I think it's somebody trying to break in. I open the door and there is Sallie. The weird thing is she will sometimes come in and use the bathroom the same time I am. She is not a normal kitty.

    Nini girl gets upset when you try to bring her inside after being bad outside. She rolls onto her back and gives these eyes that say: *****! Try me, I'll kick you into next week.

    Boony boy (aka Dexter) gets offended ALL of the time. When he stinky farts and you mention it, he looks ALL horrified at the idea that its been brought up and then leaves to the bedroom to sulk. If you don't let him lay on the couch, he looks ALL horrified and then leaves the room to sulk. If you don't pet him as much as he likes, he puts his head on the back of the couch and stares at the blinds.
