Our pets help in many ways to enrich the content of our lives - and we theirs.
Got any unusual comical or weird - even psychic - stories to tell about your pet(s)?

well all my dogs are addicted to raw carrots,  lol
it stems from when we used to show dogs giving them raw carrots kept there teeth spotless much better than a bone
and not one of our dogs has ever had a problem with there teeth ..
the downside is that i can't go to the fridge and get any out to cook with as we basically have 3 noses in the carrot tray  confused

Bet your dogs can all see in the dark too!

My sister had a cat when she was first living and working away from home, which she brought with her when she came back home to stay.
That cat wouldn't eat the normal things that our other cats ate, just loved white of egg, chocolate and crisps ... my sister is allergic to egg white, just eats the yellow bit whether its fried or boiled, and the scraps were always given to the cat

my mum and dad used to have a dog called lassie,she was an escape artist we used to come home from school and try to get in and the door handles would be on the other way round to try to fox her ,but she always worked it out ...and she used to go to a neighbours house 8/9 doors away and just walk in the door and sit in front of their fire.they would feed her and bring her home she used to drive mum and dad potty but she was a brilliant guard dog(when she was home)  lol

Oh dear, lar-lar. Lucky you've got understanding neighbours.
We had chickens at home, raised under infra-red lamp from one day-old, cute little fluffy things. They grew up as part of the family with our labrador Cindy, duck Petal, our 3 cats (and all the wild cats that I was forever trying to tame). Cindy was a sort of parent figure for them all (poor Cindy was actually a "he" dog), would let them all share his food and his kennel and wasn't unusual to find a chick at times asleep on his head! I'm sure I've got some photos somewhere, but not sure exactly where just now.

Candlelight, I would love to see the tiny fluffy chicks sharing the dog's kennel. That's so sweet !  very happy

Animals are often hyper-sensitive.
We have all heard tales of elephants being badly treated but remembering and taking their revenge when it offered itself many years later.
When I was a child we had a black labrador, a friendly happy and cuddly soul, never hurt anyone but didn't like to be approached by strangers. One day the very boastful husband of one of my aunts (he'd never been to the house, we always saw him at my gran's) said of course he could touch the dog. Despite warnings to leave it alone he WOULD go up and hold his hand out to touch it, saying: "He knows who's master", etc, etc. Needless to say he got nipped and it served him right ! Once he'd gone I can tell you there was one dog who got an extra bonio and pats all round.  very happy

Well there’s nothing psychic here but there is something magical about a spider’s web.
I agree with lynneandjohn that's it's a marvellous spectacle to watch a spider painstakingly spinning out it's thread and weaving it into a perfect web.
When you walk in the garden or the park in the early morning and the dew is still glistening on the web like sparkling little diamonds, it’s difficult to think of it as a lethal trap. But spiders are like the rest of us – they have to eat.
There are some good videos on YouTube but they won't post for some reason.

One of my cats, Pippin, disappeared for hours one night when he was a kitten.
I had a mate in for supper. We looked everywhere but there was no sign of him.
We went outside and I was scared to go to the main road in case he'd been killed.
That was when my son came home. He heard a strange scratching sound and
followed it up. Pippin had gone up the tumble dryer tube and was clinging for dear life
to the top of it. Leigh went up to the attic, from where the vent led outside, and plucked the
bemused kitty out of the top of the tube. He was even fluffier than usual!!!

I must say that the kitten in the photo is not Pippin. He was a real Tabby with lovely black
stripes and markings. He was also long-haired and had no white on him at all. That pic came from
photobucket.  very happy

04 Apr 2008, 13:29

I knew some foods (raisins, chicken bones) and woods (laburnum) were poisonous or dangerous for cats and dogs but looking up something else on WiseGeek I came across this eye-opening page which all cat and dog lovers should take a look at : http://www.wisegeek.com/which-foods-are-toxic-to-cats-and-dogs.htm

To resume, the following are all TOXIC to cats and dogs (explanations on WiseGeek page linked above) :
Alcohol
Caffeine
Chicken bones
Chocolate
Garlic
Grapes
Hops
Macadamia nuts
Mould
Mushrooms
Nutmeg
Onions
Potatoes (raw)
Raisins
Tea
Tomato plants
Tomatoes
Turkey skin

Aren't those tigers just the most beautiful, majestic of all creatures. I have seen the Bengal tigers and the very rare white tigers in the zoo in the Isle of Wight.
Also seen the tigers in their own environment - high up in the mountains in the rainforests of Indonesia there is a huge meandering safari park, bit like Jurassic Park with the double gates and the security all round, because all the animals are roaming around, saw orang utangs, crocs, the lot. Was an absolutely amazing place.

Dog guards dead master for weeks

A dog stood guard over her owner's body for up to six weeks after the man committed suicide in a remote part of rural Colorado.

The body of 25-year-old Jake Baysinger was found on the Pawnee National Grasslands about 75 miles from Denver with Cash, his German shepherd beside him, thin and dehydrated but still alive.

The dog had apparently survived by eating mice and rabbits, police said.

Mr Baysinger is believed to have shot himself. Investigators said the dog probably kept coyotes away from the body.

"At least we know it's over now," said his wife Sara. "We'd been looking for my husband for six weeks, and this isn't how we wanted it to end. At least we can close this."

Mr Baysinger was reported missing on June 28. An extensive search failed to locate him, but Kip Konig, a rancher, saw the dog last weekend, went to investigate and discovered the body and a pickup truck.

He said Cash kept running back to the pickup and jumping into the front seat.

"I got the sense she was trying to tell me where her master was," Mr Konig said.

Cash was reunited with Mrs Baysinger and her two-year-old son, Lane. She said her little boy was "very close to that dog" and happy to see her again.

Your story about the German Shepherd is so touching, Candlelight.
So sad that her human companion should commit suicide, and so young too.

Hello, there! Quite frankly we don't care how we look as long as we're warm and protected.




Blooming silly birds! What are they on about now I wonder.
